China Incident Commemorative Medal


Recommended Posts

The case is not original to the medal, so why would I keep them together? If you read the original listing from Japan (as I know you have seen it), you will see the seller explicitly stated he added the case and that it was NOT original.

Excellent info. As usual, Nick Komiya comes through with fantastic stuff. He really should write a book. Thanks Nick K, and thanks Nick from Russia for this insight. Still a bit strange that no cas

Dear Mr. Ulsterman, It appears I owe you an apology. You have a memory that is working. Forgive me for suggesting it never happened. I do that quite a bit these days much to the consternation of m

We know that, it was simple curiosity about what it really was!

I have just found official documents from the Decorations Bureau that show exactly who was to receive these--and the number of medals they expected to give.

And the group does indeed include collaborators from Korea, Taiwan, Sakhalin, and the South Pacific territories. No apologies necessary for those who said I was misleading customers on my ebay auction. It just made sense--strengthened by the home front medal description from Nick Komiya. Those who contributed to the war effort would have been eligible for one of these medals. And those who contributed from abroad would both get the medal and be looked down upon by his/her countrymen.

Full details, including numbers, will be included in my February newsletter issue. Sorry to plug my wares...

    • 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.
