SCANS OF THE PROPOSED ROMANIAN POST COMMUNIST MEDALS


Recommended Posts

Hallo Gents :beer:

the following pictures are from:

Monitorul Official Al Romaniel, Partea 1, Nr. 926/23. XII. 2003,

and show some sketches of the official (post-Communist) replacement medals for Romania.

I have had to crop the pictures from the main scan as it is to small to see the detail when scanned in full page size.

The first is the various grades of:

Modelul desenant al "Medaliel Barbatie si Credintia" cu insemn de pace.

Modern version of the Medal, "Manhood & Loyalty" in Peacetime.

Clasa 1, Aur. / First Class. Gold-Gilt

Hello Kevin,

Wonderfull decorations,

what does one have to imply with the "for manhood and loyalty"?

i.e. long service in medical business, hospitals?

Or also humanitarian help and Red Cross - service?

They look quite good, would love to see the pictures when they are minted and handed out.

However, concerning your roseta (rosette), strictly speaking a rosette is a emblem for wearing just to denote that the person had been decorated with a certain decoration. Thus it's not necessarily that it has a rosette. ;)

the main restriction is that it should be small enough for wearing on any quasi-formal clothes

when miniatures or full size medals aren't appropriate.

Kind regards and always eager to learn about the romanian medals ;)

Hallo Jacky :cheers:

thanks for your comments always welcome and I will try to answer some of your questions.

The "Manhood & Loyalty" is a Military Merit Medal instituted I believe for the 1913 Balkan War Conflict it came in two classes, with Swords for Combatant and without Swords for Non-Combatant.

Please see: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=18781

The Manhood and Loyalty has no connection with the Red Cross.

However the "Medailei Meritul Sanitar" is connected to this 1913 award from the days of Royalty.

It was given to Military Medical Personel and again is seperate from Romanian Red Cross Awards as far as I can determine.

The reason I queried the mini ribbon called a Rosette, being represented by a mini rectangular bar, is that it looks similar to the Bareta gradului de Mare Ofiter / Mini ribbon bar for Great Officer. As will be seen in the continuing posts, where the word rozeta is used a circular design is shown.

The quality of the new awards leaves a lot to be desired, these drawings stem from 2003, and some of the medals have been issued, as you can imagine getting to obtain new issues is not so easy, as of yet.

A small note Kevin, these are not replacements of long-lost medals or orders, but the new awards of Romania. High resolution images of the real things can be found on the site of the Chancellery of Orders. Too bad they look more like trinkets than awards.

It's only a strange choice of words, Kevin. Civilians wear rosettes (which may have several shapes) on their jackets, while officers wear bars on their uniforms,

Hallo Carol I, :beer:

I was told that they are to be made available as well, to veterans whose original awards were dis-allowed under the Communists, do you have any information on this?
