Cuban Guards Badge or Medal ??

Recommended Posts

Just picked up this Cuban grouping.

Anyone familiar with what appears to be a type of Guards badge?

It has a screw back and the only mark on the nut is a 5 pointed star.

Any information as to what units would have worn this and why would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Norman,

Cuban Guards badge is correct, probably Soviet made. There are a few threads in this section showing variations of the badge.

Who it was issued  to is a bit of a mystery still. Would be awarded inline with Soviet criteria i imagine.

Regards Eddie

Taz: Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort auf meine Nachricht und für die nützlichen Informationen. Ich hatte ein Foto eines alten kubanischen Veteranen gefunden, der alle seine Medaillen trug. Er hatte ein Wachabzeichen, aber ich kann das verdammte Foto nicht finden ...

Pride: Grazie per aver risposto al mio post e per le informazioni utili. Avevo trovato una foto di un vecchio veterano cubano che indossava tutte le sue medaglie. Aveva un distintivo delle guardie ma non riesco a trovare quella dannata foto ...

Thank you for responding to my posting and for the useful information. I had found a photo of an old Cuban veteran wearing all his medals. He did have a guards badge but I can't seem to find that damn photo...

I am guessing, IMHO, that this grouping may be from a Veteran of the War in Angola. They did kick some Apartheid butt their.

Or it could be from the Afghan War since many Paratroopers were sent their and they did have armor and AAA.

Who knows, Cuba is not very forthcoming with information these days. LOL
