Czech Medal for the "Second National Uprising"


Recommended Posts

All I can find is created in 1946.

The obverse "For faithfulness 1939-1945" is rather inappropriate, since from what I can tell, this is for the May 1945 Prague uprising--continuing after the war had "ended." The "1st National Uprising" was crushed in Slovakia in 1944 when the approaching Red Army was bogged down in the Carpathian mountains for 9 months.

Hi,

the original name is Pamětní odznak druhého národního odboje, in English Commemorative Badge of Second National Resistance. This bronze medal was established by the government resolution dated may 14th, 1946. It is quite common, non expensive, no fakes exist :). More details here:

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
