Personal Chinese Medal of 1945

Recommended Posts

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to ask for help in determining the level of exclusivity of this award:

Photo # 1

Gold. The big diagonal of the medal is about 6 centimeters. Text on the front side "Thank the Red Army". "Long live the Sino-Soviet friendship. August 14, 1945. "

Photo # 2

To this award was attached the corresponding text, applied to the fabric (60 cm x 40 cm):

"Dear Lieutenant-General K. The entire population of Mudanjiang city thanks you and all the Red Army troops under your esteemed leadership, the troops that won, destroyed the army of Japanese brigands and brought victory and freedom to the people of the Northeast.

Today, when the Red Army of the Soviet Union returns home with a victory, I am authorized by the entire population of the city of Mudanjiang, I bring you, Your Excellency, Lieutenant-General, a gold medal for an eternal memory. Long live the friendly unification of the peoples of China and the Soviet Union. Mayor of Mudanjiang city - Chu Zhi Yuan. "

The heirs of the person who was awarded this award have grounds to assume a high level of exclusivity of the award, as, at the time of the award, this person was in the rank of lieutenant general and personally participated in the operation for the liberation of the city (Mudanjiang, China) in which the awarding ceremony took place after liberation in 1945.

This is information that heirs consider relevant. Unfortunately, to check this out my knowledge is not enough.

Hope very much for your help!

Thank you in advance!

The cloth is pictured on the wrong side. I am sure the ink would be easier to read on the other side.

Thank you! Chinese is not my native language. The picture of the medal is normal?

    • 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.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
