I will take first crack.

It is to an private 1st class from the infantry. The private won an order (either rising sun or sacred treasure 8th class). I cant read names, sorry. The date awarded is December 15th, 1919. I think the serial number is actually 184729. If I am wrong, someone can correct me.

I think this is one the best looking documents. I have two WWI Victory Documents myself. Nice find.

Thank you for your translation, you are right number is 184729. The soldier would have belonged to the infantry.
For me this is the highest number that I saw and the first for a soldier not belonging to the navy.
I hope that I am going to arrive the rank and name of the person.
The numbers of documents are they greater than 184729.
Best regards

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.
