Military Leadership Medal

Medal instituted by Decree 47/2017 of August 23.

Medal awarded to active, reserve, or retired military personnel and leaders who have rendered outstanding services to the military institution and the Nation.

I did find this Decree here http://www.portaldogoverno.gov.mz/por/Governo/Legislacao/Boletins-da-Republica/Boletins-da-Republica-2017 . Boletin n.132. But it have nothing about medals :(

Hello Gentleman,

And well done Ilja, these medals are recently instituted and are (and I believe), will be ever rare on market.

I was able to get the Military Leadership 3 Classes medals from an auction in South Africa, however they came with incorrect ribbon.That's why the 2 first photo present the medal WITHOUT ribbon, because they are INCORRECT on the medal I own.

The Medal posted by Ilja, show what is the Correct ribbon.

Best regards to all.

From the same suite of awards from Mozambique, Medalha Tempo de Serviço (I bet a Long Service Award).

No idea if this medal is a multi class award, as the Military Leadership was

But sure, ribbon is a UN ribbon, so a ribbon put on the medal by the auctioneer, for it to be sold easily.

Best regards to all.

And the last of the 3 : Mozambique Medalha Condiçao Militar.

Again on a UN ribbon (that was 99 % chance likely put on medal by the auctioneer, because a medal with ribbon sells more easily than a medal without).

These 3 different medals are what they are, maybe there are more medals, but these 5 (3 types), are the ones I was able to get.

They are made of silvered and gilded metal.

If Ilja can find some more information, it would be great. 

Best regards to all.

Sadly, unusual ribbons are very difficult to source, especially for newer awards.  OMSA - the Orders & Medals Society of America - has a 'ribbon bank' where, I think, samples of various ribbons can be obtained, but I have no idea how or what kind of resources they have.

The other route might be to identify the company who made the award and approach them directly [by mail].  They won't likely sell you an award but may suggest how you can get ribbons. 

How's your Portuguese? ;)

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
