Golden Kite Pension Notification Documents


Recommended Posts

I have a question which may not have an easy answer.  The date of issue for a Golden Kite Pension Notification Document, is that the same (generally) date as the issuance of the order or can that date be much later than the actual awarding of the Golden Kite.

I have an example document from RC's site.  The pension document is near the top of the page, it is green.     http://www.imperialjapanmedalsandbadges.com/documents4.html

This one is from 1927.  So, the person either earned this for combat during the Tientsin Incident (making it rare) or it came from a Golden Kite given in a previous war (WWI, RJ, etc.) or we just can not know.

Any thoughts.  Thanks!

Tientsin?

Naaaa

I don't think so.

Most likely we are talking about 5th class golden kite award from 1906.

If I remember correctly they changed the size of the pension somewhere in the 1926 from 100 to 150 yen.

issued on May 19, 1926 to cavalier of 5th class golden kite order.

He got his award on April 1, 1906 together with his original 100 yen year pension.

    • 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.
