The red and white rosette is for "Special Member" or is the first type "Honorary Member" badge. THe second type "Honorary Member" badge is orange and white. The rosette for "Advisor" is purple/white/red/white. Blue and white rosettes were used by branch and chapter officials.

For anyone with an interest in non-governmental Japanese badges (fire, police, veteran, patriotic groups and Red Cross), I'd strongly suggest getting a copy of "In the Name of a Living God", by Paul Murphy and Steve Ackley. Steve can be reached at aunltd@aol.com. (Unfortunately, I do not get a commission)

Here Gordon is a certificate I hope to at least to identify the member and its age.

Very nice ! I love these Japanese award documents, even if I don't have the faintest idea what they say !!

Unfortunately all the award docs I haved seen for sale have been with the medals, which I already have, don't seem to see the docs on their own too much.

Occasionally I've seen them for sale but they are pricey on their own esp. the upper classes of awards,

    • 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 .
