unknown arab medal

Recommended Posts

Dear Henk-Willem

This is the medal of the Order of Mercy of the Red Crescent of the Yemen Arab Republic. This is also seen with the crescent filled in red - possibly a more modern issue - I think the award continued into the Republic of Yemen. I attach images and also of the badge of the order - although this is called the Order of Humanity.

Kind regards,

Owain

Dear Owain,

thank you very much! You wrote "I think the award continued into the Republic of Yemen." Do you mean that this piece is from before 1962?

Thank you in advance!
