Red Cross Gold Order of Merit

Recommended Posts

New arrival, Gold Order of Merit. Pretty decent, medal is nothing unusual, but this example is one that comes in a narrower case - I'm assuming this predates the most modern of awards in which they all appear to have the same case (wide) just to simplify things, and then merely altering the interior lower insert. Picture of a later order shown for comparison.

The wider case (yeah, I know, it's a silver not a gold, but the cases are the same on the inside..... ;) ) :

Later this year I should be able to show an example of the current issue award since I have been advised by the Japanese Red Cross that I will be awarded the Gold Merit Cross in November. :D

Congratulations!! :jumping:

May I ask - how was it that you came to be awarded the Order? If it is private matter I certainly understand, no response needed! ;)

Fundraising in the aftermath of the tsunami.

When I was a student in Japan I lived about 60 Kms from the nuclear reactors in Fukushima so I took all of the devestation rather personally since I remember what a lovely place it was, and how lovely and friendly the people were.
