EPIDEMICS CROSS OF DISTINCTION


Recommended Posts

It is a cross created by royal order of May 17, 1829 for the merit contracted in Manila (Philippines) in the epidemic that began with cholera-morbidity in 1820.
This first has the motto FERNANDO 7 ° AL MÉRITO EN LA EPIDEMIA DE MANILA DE 1820 (MERIT IN THE MANILA EPIDEMIC OF 1820).
It is a cross with four curvilinear arms enameled in white that converged in a center, on which the bust of the king or queen (Ferdinand VII and Elizabeth II) in gold, and around it a laurel border. In the arms were red-enameled isosceles triangles, the ends of which ended in gold globes, and on the upper arm a laurel wreath, from which a ring to be worn of a red and yellow ribbon in half.
The reverse was the same and in its blue center the indicated motto was read in black letters.
By royal order of July 9, 1830, another cross was awarded with the motto FERNANDO 7 ° FOR THE MERIT OF THE CANARY ISLANDS EPIDEMIC IN 1811.
By royal order of July 15, 1830, another was granted with the inscription FERNANDO 7. TO THE MERIT CONTRACTED IN THE GIBRALTAR EPIDEMIC IN 1828.
By royal order of July 27, 1836, the same cross of distinction was awarded with the motto: ISABEL II, FOR THE MERIT CONTRACTED IN THE EPIDEMICS OF CÁDIZ IN 1819 AND 1826.
The concessions were repeated so that by royal order of June 30, 1838, the concession was regularized, fixing the cases in which the professors of the science of healing became creditors to the Cross of epidemics, expressing the way how they should test their services.
In 1910 this cross was recast with the Civil Order of Charity.

The one on this week's website is a "recreation" of these crosses, as a tribute to all of you who are fighting against this covid-19 pandemic. Time will tell how these professionals are rewarded ...

    • 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.
