    Peoples Democratic Republic of Yemen - 10th Anniversary


    Recommended Posts


    Another 'new' addition to the PDRY awards series. The medallet reads, right to left:

    '1963- 1973 / The Tenth Anniversary of the 14 October Revolution'

    It is made of a very light aluminium type metal and weighs 4.94 grammes, and measures 34.9mm x 36.4mm, and the suspension brooch is 16.9mm x 14.8mm.

    The piece was obtained from Moscow and thus may be a Soviet made piece. The quality is 'cheap' and thus may be more of a souvenir piece than an official award.

    Nonetheless this is the first time I have seen such a piece. The date commemorates the commencement of the armed struggle against the British and not the actual date of independence - 30 November 1967.
