FR Yugoslavia - Medal for merit in the fields of defense and security

Recommended Posts

This long named decoration was introduced in 1998. It had only one grade and it was awarded for commitment in carrying out duties in the fields of defense and security.

Ribbon looks the same as the ribbon for the Medal for military merit of the previous (communist) Yugoslavia, except it's pentagonal. And the box is quite nice,

looks expensive and it's pretty heavy. Medal came along with the awarding document signed by the president of FRY himself which was unfortunately thrown away

by the previous owner.

One more piece with different ribbon. White lines are obviously thinner and more apart. Apart from that the ribbon itself is about 2 mm wider.

Thanks! As always documents are harder to find than medals, I also kept my eyes opened for one of these.
Unfortunately the tube is made from different kind of material than the box  also the signature is printed, I was hoping each document was signed personally.

    • 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.
