Covid 19 Medals of the World


Recommended Posts

There appears to be a steady flow of Covid Medals that are beginning to be issued around the world.

To that end have created this thread so as to keep them all in one place.

The medal is issued in one of three styles of 'Ribboning' - Austrian, Bow & 'International'.

The medals illustrated here are, I believe, an earlier striking - The Medal eyelet (Öse) is different to the current example above.

This award has also been issued with Clasps for other areas of operation  - "FLUT 2013"  (Flood Assistance 2013) and "RUMÄNIEN"  (Romania).746527646_3TypesofRibbon.thumb.jpg.bb752214942b6a985de15363cc84fef7.jpg

The European Union for Human Rights, based in the Czech Republic, issued a badge in March 2020. It is a meritorious badge for help during the Covid 19 pandemic. I enclose the photo. Contact: european.union@post.cz

I would support an award for the law and order people who round up the "No Vaxxers" and bring them to the airport, ditto for the air crews who carry out what the French army called "Crevette Bigeard"... would also be a really collectable medal when this is all over...

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
