Iraqi AirForce Brigadier General Faisal I.D

Here is a piece from my collection a one of a kind set of Items belonging to an Iraqi Brigadier General. This General has so much military history in his life. Lets start off with his I.D card. I will be posting all the Items I received from my friend BG Faisal, to share with all who collect and study Iraqi Militaria. This Iraqi General served in the Six Day War as an AN12 Pilot.

This is an Iraqi Air Force 2nd Class medal. This Order was awarded to the Brigadier General who flew 28 missions against Israel during the war in 1973. The person eventually retired with a rank of Brigadier General in the Iraqi Air Force.

The medal is of very similar design as the 1st class. One difference is that the 2nd class medal is issued in silver and worn on the breast not around the neck.

Manufactured by: PICCHIANI E BARLACCHI S.A.R.L FIRENZE
