The Finlay Order replaces its incarnation of 1928, just as the C?spedes Order was originally instituted in 1926 and carried over by the Communist regime.

Wouldn't it be ironic if way back when, somebody managed to get BOTH versions of the same Orders!

Now that would be interesting :D

Not a great deal of info to add right now apart from that it was constituted in 1928 by the the Cuban government and is conferred by the Council of State for Medical and Scientific merit.
