  1. Here are some pictures of a WW1 Barbatie si Credinta 2nd Class in Silver and the certificate that was issued with it. The transcript of the certificate is in my post above if it is difficult to read. Hopefully if I have attached it all correctly the first page of the London Gazette entry for the medal awards is downloadable, it is permission from the King to wear the medal conferred by his majesty the King of Roumania. It's a few years on since my last post on this, and I am still looking for a ribbon! so if anybody can point me in the right direction that would be much appreciated http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_05_2014/post-11532-0-26859700-1400276377.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_05_2014/post-11532-0-46754300-1400276390.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_05_2014/post-11532-0-97155400-1400276350.jpgLondon Gazette for Barbatie 1.pdf
  2. You may be interested in the following link, it is the ITN news archive, they have produced a compilation of filmed news articles from 1967 and a number are of the troubles in Aden. http://www.itnsource.com/compilations/datesanddecades/1960s/?lr=S25100603 Just scroll down and click on the video you want to play.

  3. My relative received the "Barbatie Si Credinta" i have the medal which is silver with crossed swords (no makers name) and no ribbon (Does anybody have ribbon for this, as i cant find any suitable replacement.) I also have the original certificate that came with the medal, it was issued in 1920 and was part of a number of awards released at the same time and approved by the King, the listing for the recipients is published in the london gazette Wording on the certificate, some of it is a little hard to read so apologies if this does not translate correctly! ------------------------------------------------------------- Ministerul de Rasboui Brevet Noi ministru de secretar de stat la departmentul de rasboui adeverim ca prin Inaltul decret No. 371 din 5 februarie 1920 Majestatea la regale binevoit a conferi medalia pentru Barbatie si Credinta cu spade clasa II-a caparalului G.F. ELSDON, din armata Britanica (6934) Ministru de Rasboui (signed but not legible) Directorul superior al personaluliu (signed but not legible) No. 43941 anul 1920 luna februarie iua 5 ----------------------------------------------------- Corporal G.F. Elsdon (6934) of the Rifle Brigade was my relative, he was awarded the 1914 star with rose, War medal, Victory Medal with M.I.D. and the Barbatie si Credinta 2nd class. he survived the war, although he was taken out of line 4 times, i have an old postcard with him in his "Hospital Blues" uniform. I also have the M.I.D. certificate and he was mentioned by Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig on 7th Nov 1917 and signed by Winston Churchill Secratary of State for War 1st Mar 1919. If anybody has any idea what he was awarded a Romanian award for, please let me know, and if you know what the 2bn Rifle Brigade were doing in Nov 1917 that would be very nice as well!
