Diploma of the Russo War with handwritten annotations

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow collectors

I have this diploma from the Japanese Russo War.

There’s nothing unusual about it, except the little papers that were stuck on it.

Thanks for your help,

若衫市=A place name in a city in Japan

This medal was set up on March 31, 1906. Its price in China is about twenty dollars. It comes in a wooden box and is particularly cheap

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea.
