Items shown in posts 85 & 86 above are two different divisions of the same award issued by Columbia for participation in the Korean police action. The Medalla por Servicios en Guerra Internacional [Medal for Service in War Overseas] was established by 1952 Decree number 812 in 2 divisions. The Columbian coat-of-arms appears in the obverse centers. Apparently issued only for the Korean action, so far, each bears an inscription & design relating to that specific conflict on the reverse.

The divisions reward either valor [Cruz de Hierro--Iron Cross-type insignia] or meritorious acts [Estrella de Bronce--Bronze Star-type insignia].

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • 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.
