Identification - Soviet Award/Medals to South Yemen President

Recommended Posts


From a thread dealing with Arab awards I attach below a picture of Abdul Fattah Ismail, Head of State (1978-80) of the Peoples Democratic Republic of Yemen (1978-80). It has take some time to identify his awards:

  • PDRY - Order of 14 October
  • USSR - Order of Friendship of Peoples
  • Ethiopia - Hero of Ethiopia (neck badge)
  • DDR - Order of Friendship of Peoples Grand Star (sash, etc.)
  • USSR - Lenin 100th Anniversary
  • USSR (??) - Unknown

Can anyone hazard an educated guess as to what the last award on the brooch clip/suspension is? is it a Soviet one

Many thanks,
