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!

    • 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

    • 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.
