etiopia & angola

Recommended Posts

I am hoping to see some items from the African socialist states such as Angola, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Burkina Faso etc...

Has anyone got any that they could put pictures of on this thread? I have only seen a few from each of those places, but never in great detail or with good information.

There was a socialist 'National Order' from Burkina Faso on the liverpool medal co 's website a short while ago for ?99. It was a pretty but crude (though well made) example. A very good design too. I would love to see more from these places.

Here is my small collection of Angolian medals from the Peoples Republic of Angola, which existed from 1975 to 1990. In the book „ORDRES ET MEDAILLES DES PAYS D'AFRIQUE" from Nicolas de Roffignac are pictures of five another medals.

Unfortunatelly I have no idea what colors the ribbons of the medals have.

All further informations about orders, medals and decorations from Angola are welcome.

FAPLA, Medal 1, AVS

This picture popped up on a tourists' blog last month. In it, a Cuban veteran of Africa wears a VERY unusual medal-the Ethiopian Derg regime wound medal-2nd row down. Really cool.
