Most of these are pretty easy, two aren't:

1- Red Banner of Combat Valor; Order of Comnat Valor; Polar Star; Honorary Medal of Combay [all probbaly long service awards?]

2- 40 Years MPR; 50 Years MPR; 60 Years MPR; 50 Years Army; 60 Years Army

3- 30 Years Khalkin Gol; 40 Years Khalkin Gol; 30 Years Victory; 50 Years State Security; USSR: Military Merit Medal

4- USSR: 50 Years Armed Forces; USSR: 60 Years Armed Forces; USSR: 70 Years Armed Forces; USSR: 30 Years Victory; USSR: 40 Years Victory

5- ___???___; ___???___; Cuba: 30 Years FAR; Poland: Brotherhood in Arms

6- Czechoslovakia: Brotherhood in Arms, 2nd class; DDR: Brotherhood in Arms, 3rd class

The first two on row five could be almost anything. Almost any of the Bulgarian jubilee medals? Ten Years Yugoslav Army? What????

A very nice (and interesting) sewn-on ribbon bar that came with a uniform that has just arrived (photos of that when weather allows).

Hi Ed,

Very nice ribbon bar !!! :jumping::jumping::jumping:

Just a basic question : how can be explained the mix of Soviet, then Mongolian, then Soviet again... awards ?

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers.

Not sure I understand teh question, Christopohe. Soviet follows Mongolian. From the end of the third row and all of the fourth row. Then the last two rows are from other friendly nations.

Earlier ribbon bars mix the Soviet and Mongolian ones more than this does.

To see the uniform to which it is sewn, see http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=18232&st=34

A newly hosted ribbon bar. Interesting in several dimensions -- no joke, as it is heavily vaulted all around and may not scan well.

1) Honorary Medal of Combat [sic]; USSR: Victory over Japan Medal; "We Won" [quirky colors?]

2) Medal "30th Anniversary of Khalkin Gol; Medal "50 Years of the Mongolian People's Revolution"; Medal "60 Years of the Armed Forces of the MPR"

Interesting?

Interesting ribbon bar: cloth underneath (so NOT painted), but plastic on top. First time i've seen that.

Also an interesting combination... with the rare unselfishness medal.

And it looks like the bottom pic has a Soviet with:

- cloth Soviet ribbons

- and then a "old enamel style" Mongolian ribbon bar underneath!
