Recommended Posts

Hello,

Commemorative Medal of the Diósgyőri Steel Works,


Commemorative medal of the Lenin iron and steel works

The Commemorative Medal of Diósgyőri Steelworks was donated by the Council of Ministers with Ministerial Council Decision number 1038 in 1952 as an award for working people who were involved in the construction and expansion of Diósgyőri Steelworks and did a good job in this regard.

The name of the award was renamed by the Council of Ministers number 1032 in 1953 by the Council of Ministers in memory medal of the Lenin iron and steel works.

The commemorative medal has two classes. The 1st class (silver) of the award could be given to those who worked continuously for 2 years in the construction and expansion of the Diósgyőri steelworks, the 2nd class (bronze) for those who worked continuously for at least 1 year and who demonstrated their good performance to earn the commemorative medal.

The commemorative medal was awarded by the Minister of Steel and Mechanical Engineering.

Nice award, document and thread.  There is an interesting posting on WIKI on the town of  Diósgyőr   and the factory your medal was issued for.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diósgyőr  I'll have to post some of my awards and documents.  They have lain dormant since the Hungarian sub forum was closed.

Regards,

Gordon

    • 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.

It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts...
