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

I have a copy of his handwritten notes on the Chinese Medal Book he was planning to publish plus his article on 'some ambiguos Chinese Medals" If desired I could post them. Richard

That one has seen better days!

I very mich doubt there ever was a case for this medal - BUT - if there was, what do you guys think the likely design would have been?

I'd guess it would have been similar to the China Incident war medal on the order of materials, obviously with a different insert for the commemorative style ribbon. I'm sure you all saw last year that one that was auctioned on Yahoo - red one - it looked like a very nicely made case. Red? Well, maybe.

This means, it WAS possible to buy cases at any (military) shop in the 1930s/40s?

Theoretically this is possible ...

But it still should be a cardboard case...

No preference with LDO :lol:

Double posting ...


I guess this LDO remark really got you exited :lol:

Old memories? :whistle:

Why not?

Especially since it was possible to buy a replacement ribbon or "field" leather case for orders.

Although I don't have exact info ;)

Definitely makes sense. We know there were a variety of shops that made cases. It doesn't seem unreasonable that someone could order up a custom case for something. Definitely not hard to do, especially if you are already in the biz!!

Interesting to see this set, without being able to judge authenticity of this combination:

China Incident Commemorative Medal + case from a China Incident War Medal.

Some rhetoric thoughts:

...a contemporary combination for presentation reasons?

...an alternative solution because of lack of (official released) cases for the China Incident Comm. Medal?

...or just a feeble construction of this dealer to push the sales?

    • 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.
