The Royal Order of Cambodia


Recommended Posts

Hi Gents,

I got this Royal Order of Cambodia as part of a group of orders.

Can the order be attributed to a production period or a manufacturer?

Am I right that this is a French issued cross?

Kind regards

Hello Andreas.

based on the ribbon color it is indeed awarded by the French authorities as Officer grade as you are certainly aware of.

And a beauty.

Hello Bernhard,

thanks for the additional information about the Officer grade, I forgot to mention that.

Do you know in which period this medal was awarded as French medal?

You're right, a really beautiful piece of craftsmanship.

Kind regards
Andreas

Hello Andreas.

Until 1948 the French version was awarded.

Wikipedia has extensive coverage/details.

BTW:You may also like the Order of the Dragon of Annam if you have not already seen it.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • 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
