Japanese Officers with Chinese (Manchukuo and Nanjing Government) Awards

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

not only Japanese and "Chinese" orders & medals! Yamamoto and Tojo wear an insigna of a Knight Gran Cross of the Crown ( Kingdom of Italy) and Orders of the German Eagle. In your post # 70 he wears a Romanian Order of the Crown... without swords!!! He is not a civilian ...awarded for diplomatic purposes?!

Looks like the Order of the German Eagle without swords doesn`t discomfort you much :whistle:

Yes, you are right, can we consider them for diplomatic purposes !? He is not a civilian...

Possible answers

His Crown has no swords because he got it before 1938 (the year when military division of the order was introduced)

His Deutschen Adler has no swords because he got it before April 1939 (when version with swords was introduced)

Cheers,

Nick

Nick, Thank you for these Wonderful images reflecting a devoted and sincere "labor of love".

Believe the first award on bar in post #57 & #58 is a Chile Order of Merit officer--note the condor bird suspension, rosette and apparent female head in the center medallion. The rare piece shown in posts #59 and #60 this thread lacks a suspension 'bird' and the central medallion detail appears different than #57/#58.

Yep, indeed it could be Chilean.

Quite exotic medal bar for Japanese Admiral ;)

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of Hokkaido award suspension ...

What we have here is Auspicious Clouds (most likely 2nd or 3rd class), Manchu Foundation Medal, National Shrine Foundation Commemorative Medal and (very likely) Manchu Census Medal and Manchu Red Cross Medal.
