Republic of China ODM (Taiwan)


Recommended Posts

Here's Taiwan, with a few PRC thrown in. The new ones came from a military tailor shop in Shi Men Ding (Taipei).

The round gizzies on top are staff college badges, General staff badges, etc. I love 'em dearly, but there's no such thing as too much bling in the ROC.

It's (yet another!) area I'm struggling to gain information on for my site!

I've got obverse pictures which I'll post eventually. Is the 110K resolution adequate for you?

WOW!!!!

:jumping: :jumping: :jumping:

I am breathless!!

The Taiwanese military website actually has a LOT of information regarding their awards on it- IF you can wade through the subordinate clauses! (Not unlike German actually).

Here are a few of the ODM of ROC (Taiwan). For openers, a predecessor from the Chinese Empire. Unfortunately I don't have the earlier ornate ribbon (much like Laos White elephant):

TAIWAN ? Imperial Order of the Double Dragon, 2nd Type (1900-1911), 2nd Class, 3rd Grade, Neck badge and star in silver/gold and enamel, EF,

Liverpool Medal, 8/05

Gordon A. Rust, Wilmington, DE, 1957, - Code: TW 3

Awarded to Capt. Rust for service in the USAAF, flying the Hump in C-47's.

I think we need to be very VERY careful in co-mingling

-- Imperial (pre-1911) Chinese awards

-- Republic of China (1911-50) awards

-- Taiwan ('Republic of China') awards (1950--)

These are VERY different creatures.

Some day, I shall try sorting out various jumbled threads in this sub-forum . . . :banger:

Here's one I picked up at the Meiji Shrine flea market in Tokyo while in "Magpie" mode. I knew it looked funny, but didn't have any books with me. At the price, I could afford to make a mistake. Based on subsequent research and seeing a lot of the fantasy stuff out of PRC, I've reached my conclusion. Still, it's not so bad for a Chinese copy at the 99 cent store. The ribbon's probably worth a lot more than the medal.

TAIWAN ? Order of the Precious Tripod, 6th class, VF

Meiji Shrine, 3/01, - Code: TW 6

I thought I'd throw the Double Dragon in as a lagniappe. So far as I've noticed, we haven't set up the separate fora for pre- / post 1950. Let's get some pictures out there and let some experts comment and make us all smarter.

Some of these are in Peterson's, but many are not. Most are on the Government website, but very little additional data in English. It's also interesting that many of these decorations are quite large as compared to European / American pieces.

TAIWAN ? Air Force Order of Grand Community (Peterson ? Great Unity ? Ta Tung - Magnus 7), Mint

Taipei (Shi Men Ding), 6/00, ? Code:TW 8

In some cases, The name Peterson assigns is different from the Government website name. I've tried to retain both, as well as a Chinese transliteration provided by a Chinese friend.

TAIWAN ? Medal of the Armed Forces, A -1st Class (Peterson - Land, Sea and Air Forces ? Lu Hai Kuong Jia - Magnus 14)

Taipei (Shi Men Ding), 6/05, ? Code:TW 13

Sorry, the picture here is a bit fuzzy. Colors are also a little funky. I'll do better when I open this case next time.

TAIWAN ?Medal of the Brilliant Light, A - 1st Class (Illustrious Service - Glorious China ? Kuon Hua Jia Yi - Magnus 15), Senior Grade 1st Class in gold, Mint

Taipei (Shi Men Ding), 6/00, ? Code:TW 15

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
