Medal "For Service To Czech State Security"

And I just got one today:

The ribbon is quite dirty, showing wear suggesting it was once swen onto some sort of narrow medal bar strip about as high as a pen. I've never seen any MOUNTED Czech Communist medal bars, so don't know if that was possible as a style.

I have two additional SNB medals that have neither been shown nor discussed here... an SNB Service Medal and a 30 Years SNB Medal. I have seen both turn up on other Warsaw Pact uniforms, most notably on uniforms of the DDR MfS (Stasi). First, the SNB Service Medal:

    • 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.
    • "(...) 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 .
