North Korean Order of Freedom & Independence


Recommended Posts

do you happen to have a larger image of it ? :D

I'm not sure if it is combat related, but I do know that it is awarded to Military Commanders for excellent leadership :)

It looks like a Russian made piece, but I can't read the inscription :D if you could post larger pictures that would be great :D

If NK served in Vietnam it is possible, but unlike the 50s orders and medals (that most are serialed) I don't believe the after 60s version had a serial number :(

If it does have a serial number, I can't make it out in the photo.

This one was established on July 7, 1950 in two classes for

"military leaders and commanders for outstanding achievements and skills on the battlefield"

1st class for commanders of divisions and brigades.

2nd class for commanders of regiments, battalions and companies.

As was mentioned earlier piece in post # 1 was made by Soviet Mint in the early 50s. Made in silver.

Piece in post # 5 was made in North Korea (I'd say 70s). Made in cheap white alloy.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
