  1. Thank you All for your wishes, thank you Owain, I am really lucky thank God. in fact my house is 400 meters, more or less in few meters, away from the blast. just remembering the scenario after the explosion is enough for me to live it again. I walked away from my house to the first, second and third hospital bare foot, only wearing socks. they were both destroyed i continued bare foot walking to the third that was also destroyed but the army was helping injured people (by hundreds) so they gave me basic help, until my wife knew were i was (or what was my status) then we went back to my open

  7. Hi Lorenzo, My brother you are everywhere I like it . I will search for the want list place, thanks
  8. Hi, Does anyone have an old Lebanese medal for sale? I have most of the medals but would always buy double especially the old ones. before 1986 Yours, Elie
  9. I guess you are right they are both confused, without proper training, military tailors become normal tailors with no respect to the order of wearing of the medals. Yes the training medal or ouissam el tadrib has 3 classes 1-2-3 the first being with a Leaf, the second with a star and the third simple. I guess they differ by the time or how many trainings have been made. so it is not like other medals being Gilt, Silvered and bronze. I mean the first one could be directly taken and not gradually, for example in Lebanon if someone took the Merit medal class 2, after a period if he retakes it,
  10. Hi, Thanks for the feedback. In fact this is the biggest one belonging to a General, they are many in the Syrian army. I have smaller of 17 medals and less as well I will post one now that has a medal not in the other one in the second line I guess.
  11. Hi, I was browsing this site and saw your comments on this medal, it is the Peace in Lebanon Medal, well this is for sure not a Lebanese medal, it is a Syrian medal awarded to high officers (never soldiers) for their service in Lebanon assuming to preserve the peace in the late 1977. And Syrian soldiers, even most officers since the 70s they are only awarded ribbons and not the actual medal, I dont know if they issue a certificate but I know it comes as a direct order from the army commendment as a document to the corp or place the military man is serving and so it reflects on his salary so
  12. Hi, Can anyone help me finding some of the Liban Lebanon Medals under French mendate? Thanks, Elie
