Nut al-Jarih/ Iraqi Wound Medal with (paper bag) of issue.

Established: By Law# 95 of the year 1983-88

Manufactured by: Switzerland

Awarded to Iraqi soldiers wounded during the Iraq-Iran War 1980-88

There is another version for this Medal??? I was told it was for Commanders, that were wounded during the war.

Does anyone have any pictures of it? I seen it one time while I was in Iraq at the Bazzar at F.O.B Liberty for $35.00, I don't know why I did not pick it up???! On the Gold star it has fins that stand up giving the award a sharper edge look to it.

If any one has this type for sale, I will pay $50.00 for it.

I seen it at the Bazzar at F.O.B Liberty in Baghdad, Iraqi. It was the only one I have ever seen. I think that the South Africa, Johannasburg collection has one in it.

Thank you

God Bless

What possible reference do you have for a 'commander' grade? What your suppliers in Baghdad told you? I have seen nothing in the regulations addressing THAT????

I'm sure they could make it up to order for the occupation troops?

I am sure that if some phaleristically inclined German gefreiter in Paris in 1942 really wanted a pinback L?gion d'Honneur '1st class', then some enterprising chap in Paris could have cooked it up for him? For a price. Ah, capitalism, even under occupation?

:rolleyes:

Gentlemen,

I agree with Ed - only one grade of medal although, two manufactured types are known. I have had the regulations translated as below.

Owain.

There are definitely two manufacturers of this award.I have both examples in my collection which is currently on display in Johannesburg.I will be returning to South Africa next month and will also be taking back the display which has been on loan since January.I will send detail photographs when I have the means and facilities to provide quality and better inputs.

Here are my 2 variations in manufacturer. The reverse of the second is smooth, the strike is good....the details on the obverse are much more vaulted than the other...

I see that you found one. Congrats.

So only wounded officers could receive this award? Nothing for the Enlisted guys?

No I have not found one yet, but I have seen a lot of the newer types: selling for $50.00 each.

I have 3 of them, I still need the older type wound medal. It is very hard to find them.

Thank you

I received this picture with both medals on them from a friend in Baghdad:

Lorenzo :banger: have to find me one!!!!
