Order of the Cloud and Banner Serial Number Database

Recommended Posts

I have always wanted to make a database for the Order of the Cloud and Banner as it seems relatively many survived as being awarded to foreigners. It will include class, serial number, manufacturer, date awarded (if available), name (if available), source found. Let me know if anything else should be added or removed. Medal manufacturer names will be included later since I don't have the Chinese name for them yet. There is some other auctions to go through later.

If you want to submit a serial number and/or picture post it below and I will add it to the list. Please include the source.

In case you don't have it, the recipient of mine is Gordon Alone Rust, USAAF, who received the award for flying the Hump in WW II.

Good Morning and a happy day to you!<br />I don't know if this is going to be of much help, but I noticed an obscure (It was in the wrong area) item on eBay which was selling the medal which appeared to be a 1st Class Breast Badge with the following award:<br /><br />"National Government Republic of China Certificate of award:<br /><br />"The Special Breast Order of the Cloud and Banner with Certificate"<br />To<br />Major Claude Powell O-1573517<br /><br />For duties while an Instructor at the South West China Training Center, 20 January 1946<br /><br />signed: CHIANG CHUNG CHXXNG (Blurred)<br />President<br /><br />Richard

Hi Wendell, thanks for the information! I assume the medal was lost long ago?

Anybody know if Special Breast Order is what class? I am guessing 8th or 9th?
