Iraqi Medal ID Query


Recommended Posts

Looking for some help to ID this one. My friend in Baghdad gave it to me & said it had something to do with rewarding Iraqi women for their sacrifices during the war effort. Any ideas or information?? Thanks in advance

Issued to appriciate Iraqi women for their role and donation to support the Iraq-Iran War, Saddam's signiture.

Case is a 1'' by 1'' tan or brown plastic 2 piece box:

1983 issue;

Looks like it is missing the bow tie type mounting pin???

Hope this will help a little for your Medal:

God Bless

All the ones that I have came with the little case two piece tan plastic box: When I was in Baghdad, Iraq you could pick these up for $1.00-$3.00 dollars. Now they are poppping up on the internet for $20.00. dollars.

Its as if Saddam gave them out like water: for a small donation for the war effort.

Pretty prominent hooters for a woman on a middle east medal...

I guess certain sections of the population would get a bit angry about that....

I suspect this was made in Italy- at least some of them. The labour medal certainly was.

Did you find any extra items you want to sale??

Thank you

Lorenzo

Hi Lorenzo,

I did not bring back any extras. I will be holding on to my flag and modest medal collection. Hopefully my kids or grandchildren will be into them! :cheers:

That would be the best thing. I might put my collection in my will to go to some sort of Iraqi Campaign War Museum. For the world to see in remembrance of Iraqi Freedom Vets. My children realy don't understand collecting Militaria and might part with it. I would want all of it to stay together for others to see a better understanding of Iraqs military history.

Thank you

Lorenzo

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
