OTTOMAN TURKISH ORDER & MEDAL RIBBONS TABLE prepared by M.DEMIR ERMAN


Recommended Posts

Here is the table for Ottoman Turkish Order and Medal Ribbons. prepared by me.

I used mainly Mr. Metin Erüreten's  Ottoman Orders and Medal book to find out colors of the ribbons.

Of course some of them I already have in my collection.

I also will include 3 hard to find ribbon photos. (Şefkat Nişanı-Orders of Charity, Hareket-i Arz - Eartquake and Tahlisiye - Life Saving Medal 4 or more)

Hope these will help  

Regards

Demir

Many thanks Demir for taking the time to create this most useful ( and fully bilingual! ) chart. As a budding collector of Ottoman campaign medals I have already found it both informative and very convenient.

All the Best,

Mark

Hi Mr.Demir,

I have discovered this forum a couple of days ago. I felt like I found a treasure here. So sophisticated information and great help from you as I have read so far.

I say hello to everyone by the way, as a grandson of a Turkish soldier Col. Ahmet Nasır Vurgeç who had served Ottoman and Turkish Army during his life time. 

I will try to share my historic belongings and documents as soon as I can.

Best wishes.

Thanks for this great work. Very helpful.

Here some improvement suggestions:

  1. Over the white ribbon for the life saving medal the english text is incorrect. Should be "Life saving 3rd time"
  2. Could you change the colour of the background to be in contrast to the white ribbons. It is hard to differ between Background and ribbon.

Kind regards

Alex

    • 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.
