Hello,

I have found an strange medal case. Can anyone please translate the Japanese text, and identify for what medal it is for?

Much appreciated!

This order was established October 18, 1950.

Awarded to military personnel for outstanding conduct during wartime or in a state of emergency.

Most likely case in post 1 came from 1960s/1970s time period.

These are not japanese.

This are chinese. 

So called Hanja - chinese characters borrowed from chinese and incorporated into the korean language.
