Republic of Bulgaria Ribbon Bars

Recommended Posts

Another interesting one. The frustrating thing will be that if you do not have the award documents... there's no way of knowing who this was, what medals they received. The long service ribbons are identical for Ministry of Interior, Army (which includes air force), construction troops, whatever. The only thing that changes is the pendant itself.

Again, if we assume the Soviet model this would be a very interesting General Officer:

Row 1:

Order of 9th September 1944 (1st Class)

Order of 9th September 1944 (2nd Class)

Order of the Red Banner

Medal for Combat Merit

Row 2:

Bulgarian Medal for Participation in the Anti-Fascist Struggle

Victory Medal for the Patriotic War

20 Years Long Service in (?) (MVR, KDS or Army)

15 Years Long Service in (?) (MVR, KDS or Army)

Row 3:

10 Years Long Service in (?) (MVR, KDS or Army)

Jubilee Medal "20 Years Agencies of (?)" (MVR, KDS or Army)

Jubilee medal "25 Years People's Rule"

Jubilee medal "25 Years Agencies of (?)" (MVR, KDS or Army)

Row 4:

Russian Military Merit Medal

Russian Victory over Germany Medal

I have NO Bulgarian ribbon bars. What a tragedy! :(

Having precedence and which-side-is-up "issues" with Cuban, I note that Bulgarian bars also have "issues" with placement--

note that some of the bars above show long services left to right 10 to 15 to 20, while others have what would seem "normal" 20 to 15 to 10 with senior/highest first. :speechless1:
