Russian China Commemorative Medal Boxer uprising


Recommended Posts

Gents,

 

Does anybody know the award criteria of the Russian China Commemorative Medal for the so-called Boxer Uprising 1900? I understand, that there are two versions- silver (for combatants) and bronze for non-combatants.

Background is attached (German) medal bar- the German China Commemorative Medal is for combatants, while the Russian version is for Non-combatants- how does this accompany?

 

BR,

Chris

Chris, bronze version wasn't issued exclusively for combtants.

Bronze - für alle Teilnehmer an den kriegerischen Ereignissen in Ostasien (Bekämpfung des Boxeraufstandes vom 30. Mai 1900 bis 29. Juni 1901), sowie auch für die bei der Kranken- und Verwundetenpflege in dem Kriegsgebieten tätig gewesenen Personen beider Geschlechter. 

Die Denkmünze aus Stahl erhielten alle Personen, welche an den Vorbereitungen zur Aufstellung und Entsendung der deutschen Streitkräfte beteiligt waren, ebenso die Besatzungen der Transportschiffe deutscher Reedereien von Truppen- und Kriegsbedarf nach und von Ostasien.

 

Take care,

Nick

Light bronze - лицам, не участвовавшим в боях,  а равно и находившимся в местностях, объявленных на военном положении.

 

Original regulation.

Russian bronze.

For those who did not participate in the battles, as well as for those who were in areas where martial law was declared. 

German bronze.

For all participant of war in East Asia.

So both bronze medals perfectly fit this medal bar.

    • 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.
