Japanese Officers with Chinese (Manchukuo and Nanjing Government) Awards


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

not only Japanese and "Chinese" orders & medals! Yamamoto and Tojo wear an insigna of a Knight Gran Cross of the Crown ( Kingdom of Italy) and Orders of the German Eagle. In your post # 70 he wears a Romanian Order of the Crown... without swords!!! He is not a civilian ...awarded for diplomatic purposes?!

Looks like the Order of the German Eagle without swords doesn`t discomfort you much :whistle:

Possible answers

His Crown has no swords because he got it before 1938 (the year when military division of the order was introduced)

His Deutschen Adler has no swords because he got it before April 1939 (when version with swords was introduced)

Cheers,

Nick

Nick, Thank you for these Wonderful images reflecting a devoted and sincere "labor of love".

Believe the first award on bar in post #57 & #58 is a Chile Order of Merit officer--note the condor bird suspension, rosette and apparent female head in the center medallion. The rare piece shown in posts #59 and #60 this thread lacks a suspension 'bird' and the central medallion detail appears different than #57/#58.

Yep, indeed it could be Chilean.

Quite exotic medal bar for Japanese Admiral ;)

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of Hokkaido award suspension ...

Regards,

Nick

What we have here is Auspicious Clouds (most likely 2nd or 3rd class), Manchu Foundation Medal, National Shrine Foundation Commemorative Medal and (very likely) Manchu Census Medal and Manchu Red Cross Medal.

    • 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.
