this medal was shown in a german forum (SDA).

i didn't find it in my literature but i guess it could be one of the dozens of unofficial medals that were struck on the ocassion of the jungturk revolution 1908. i think i can read the ottoman date 1324 (=1908/09) beneath the thugra.

yout thoughts are wellcome

regards and thanks in advance

Hi Josef,

as far as I know this is one of many different bronze/copper unofficial Turkish medals which were struck to commemorate/celebrate the II Turkish constitution.(I guess It reads some thing like Kanuni esasi yadigari)

I am happy to be corrected if I am wrong,this is my personal opinion.

Hi all,

am I right that this is another variant of these "1324" unofficial medals celebrating the constitution? 

Thanks for your replys

    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • 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.
