REPUBLIC OF CONGO ( CONGO - BRAZZAVILLE ) ORDERS & MEDALS

Recommended Posts

And more to follow in Congo Brazzaville

Medal of Honour of the Police,instituted by Decree n° 61-130 of 27 June 1961

The medal is a single class medal (the one I own is silvered bronze,but I guess the medals that were awarded in the 60ies & 70ies were in real silver).

If anybody has a picture of an older one,he's most welcome to post it here.

Hello Gentlemen, despite no information was found on this medal, at least it exist.

Commemorative Medal for the 20th Anniversary of the Army (with date on reverse 1966-1986).

But it's Africa, so do not try to seek for any logic....in 2011 they have instituted a Medal for the 50th Anniversary of the Armed Forces (with dates on reverse 1961-2011).

By the way lets' keep in mind that year 1986 was an important date in Congo history (they got a new Consitution in 1986). So maybe that medal was instituted to reinforce armed forces cohesion.
