Cuban Guards Badge or Medal ??

Recommended Posts

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

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
