Korean translation is needed


Recommended Posts

Front: 천리마 is Chollima it is a North Korean movement for shock economics

I guess the easiest way to translate in English would be "thousand mile horse" It is closest to Soviet Stakhanovite movement.

Reverse, first section to the left 조선직업 Joseon career or occupation, the rest I can't read on the reverse since it gets blurry when I zoom in, could you post closer shots of the reverse.

only have middle and right to translate, but I'm suspecting it is most likely for shock worker or something similar

I'll have to check out the second word tomorrow and elaborate in my brain a bit on it :D Think it over so to speak but,

Last word, 앙위원회

means, "Chiang Rai Committee" Now this needs a little explanation, Chiang Rai is a major debarcation point for North Koreans wishing to flee the North, and they commonly entry Thailand through this point.

As for the badge's meaning, as Chiang Rai is also a Military Commission of the Communist Party of North Korea, which I suspect this badge belonged to a member, it looks like a badge from there.

middle word:

촘동맹중

Alliance of Chom, so we have together,

천리마 촘동맹중 앙위원회

Chollima alliance/confederate (most likely alliance in this context) of the Chiang Rai Committee.

Hope that helped :)

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
