I mean this first medal/order in the bar???

Maybe this one (known as Hokkaido prefecture award "for faithfulness")?

Interesting the painting of admiral Yamamoto Isoroku, it is the first time I see it. The painter took some liberties as admiral Yamamoto was awarded pothumously in 1943 the Grand Cordon of the order of the Chrysanthemum and the first class of the Golden Kite. In the painting Yamamoto has also the breaststar of the second class Golden Kite, but as far as my information goes, he was never awarded the second class.

Indeed Pieter!

This is posthumous portrait painted after the famous photograph + necessary "upgrades" ;)

VERY nice Nick! Thanks for posting all these beautiful bling.

I've seen that photo of Kuribiyashi before, but only noticed the Order of United Glory breast star now.

That first photo of Togo was extraordinary with the close-up. Not only is he wearing the Manchukuo Order of the Illustratious Dragon, but tucked into an obscure corner, is the Qing Empire Order of the Double Dragon!

Quite often they simple cut the bottom part ;)

Barbarians...

Indeed, but I saved this one for this thread ;)
