Here is the El Salvador Cruz for Military Campaign 1980-1992 (actually the Civil War in El Salvador).

I saw a recent photo of this award, it seems there is different manufacturer, and quality vary.

Regards to all.

Again, the same tool dies, have been use to make this one, just the motto at 6 O'Clock is changing (and the ribbon).

It's Dr. Manuel Enrique Araujo Medal.

Manuel Enrique Araujo was President of El Salvador from 1911 to 1913, when he was assasinated. He was Vice President before 1911, and was also ounce Mayor of San Salvador. He was also a Doctor, and he was giving care to the poor for free. It is during his Presidency that the actual flag of El Salvador was adopted.

Since 1955 the Military Academy of El Salvador is named after him.

An award for Military Doctor...? Or an award for Military Teacher ? Or for those who follow the course of the Military Academy and are major in their promotion ? If any member can tell us more about. I would be glad.

Regards to all.

Hello Gentlemen,

 

In 2007, IVB showed us an award document of the Order of Jose Delgado awarded in that same year 2007.

 

I took here the opportunity to show a much earlier exemple of Order Jose Delgado award document : Gran Cruz de Plata, to Gregorio López Bravo, who in 1971 was Minister of Foreign Relation of Spain.

 

Much later, Gregorio López. Bravo was killed in an airline crash in Bilbao in 1985.

 

I took the occasion to thanks Ilja and others contributors for the amazing photo they share along the years.

 

Regards.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
