Thank you again for this translation Nick. After reading the article on the Jiandao/Gando massacre would it be correct to assume that this medal was given to participants of that battle?

I sincerely appreciate your thoughts on this.

I don`t think that it was intended only for participants of the 1920 incident.

Looks like propogandical memorabilia ;) 

 

Best,

Nick

It makes sense since the award date is 13 years later.

 Thank you again,
