Hi to all,
This is an albanian major in uniform model 1952. The picture is around 1960. The medal marked is not albanian one. Looks like something Chinese, or Korean, or Vietnamese. Or maybe it's from some Eastern European country. Can anyone help me identify him?
Thanks in advance,

If Vietnamese, AKA Gold Star Medal type 1-- see GMIC topic Socialist Republic of Vietnam - Gold Star Order.

Might be Bulgarian Hero of Peoples Republic, as star looks broad.

In either case,  suspension ribbon pin shape looks like a truncated isosceles form rather than rectangular.

Gents, I'm not sure the gold star Hero of Vietnam was created in 1960. And remember ALL Hero star are worn on left chest.


Also te suspension doesn't fit at all: I see it shapped as an arc, or a kind of trapeze, not a rectangle.

It makes me think of this chinese medal: not the same, but similar style:

    • 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.
