Sir

The bar FERNANDO POO is a unnofficial bar for the 1912 Africa Medal

Please see:

For the Rif Campaign Medal only the following bars are officials:

Campaña de Melilla 1909

sidi hamet el hach-gurugU

quebdana

taxdirt-hidum-zoco el had

nador-zeluán-zoco el jemis

peñOn-alhucemas

Antonio,

Thank you for your reply! In any reference that I have seen, nothing has listed Fernando Poo as a unauthorized bar, but it does make sense. I have checked out that link on numerous occasions, but still have not seen a picture of an actual Fernando Poo bar.

In a next issue of the spanish Revista de Historia Militar (Journal of Military History), the article THE MEDAL OF AFRICA AND ITS VARIANTS by Francisco Javier HERNÁNDEZ NAVARRO and Antonio PRIETO BARRIO will be published with more details about this Fernando Poo (three images) and other bars

Do you think there's anyway possible that you could send me a link on where to purchase/get that journal? You can email me more information at cwdts1@gmail.com

Thank you,
