Antonio,

New to me too. The multicoloured centre ribbon is for the Order of Magnanimity and apparrently awarded to Bahraini and Gulf Cooperation military personnel for standing with Bahrain in attending to the Bahraini 'version' of the Arab Spring.

Owain

PS The photo is good example of the Arab habit of wearing as many parachute course wings as possible - in the UK only one is permissible.

Hello Gentlemen,

Owain is much more a specialist in Gulf & Arab Order than I'am myself, but I will try to help the best I could by supporting this post with photo's.

On first row at left, the red ribbon is I assume Order of Renaissance from Bahrain, (I just got this small photo)

On first row, the sand ribbon from right side Officer is Order of Sheik Issa (it seems the highest class) (I join photo of 2nd, 3rd & 5th Class to show what it looks like).

On first row at right this is the ribbon of Wissam al Bahrain (but it exist 2 type of this 5 classes award) (I join photo of 1st Class & 4th Class of the 1st Type, with Sheik looking towards left, and breast star of 1st Class and 4th Class 2nd type, with King looking towards right).

On 2nd row, at left it is Order of Achievment (Wissam al Ajamat), it's a 2 Classes Award.(I join photo of both classes)

On 2nd row, in center, as Owain said it's Order of Magnanimity

Sorry Gentlemen, my knowledge in Bahrain award do not go further, but feel free to help, and as best as you could, support this post with photographic evidence).

Regards.

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
