Japanese Red Cross

Recommended Posts

The Japanese Red Cross medal was established on 21 June 1988, from what I can gather they were issued for major conflicts and there was a male and a female version.

Here's what I have at the momment. What else is out there? What do you have?

Can some one explaine the different levels of the order?

This is a Womans Silver medal for the 1904-05 Sino Russo War. Case front

Continuing with the womens , WW2 with rosette, can someone explaine the difference or reason for the rosette.

This kind of rosette was for "special membership". I don't know what differs special from normal membership.

Here is mine, mounted.

I forgot to say that it is unmarked.

Here is another one from my collection that is marked. Made of what looks to be silver. I will only post a picture of the mark since the rest of the medal looks like any other red cross medal. :P

    • 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 .
