Japanese Medal group


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This Japanese medal group arrived in the post today. I have a standard knowledge of Japanese military history from 1868-1945, however I plan to do some more reading (particularly the Russo-Japanese, 1914-1918,  the Second Sini-Japanese & 1939-1945 Wars. Thus, I bought a medal group that spans the whole period!

I traditionally collect German medals from 1848-1945, & British medals from 1899-1945, and so, I’m a tad out of my depths here. 

I understand the group consists of:

1. Order of the Sacred Treasure (8 class)

2. Order of the Rising Sun (8 class)

3. 1894-1895 Sino-Japanese War Medal 

4. 1915 Taisho Enthronement Medal 

5. 1904-1905 Russo-Japanese War Medal 

6. 1914-1918 War Medal 

7. 1920 Japanese Census Medal

8. 1937-1945 China Incident Medal 

9. ???   ???   ???

10. 1937-1945 Red Cross Society Member Medal 

 

If anyone can confirm this I’d be very thankful. 
 

Also, if anyone can tell me what the penultimate medal is I’d be fascinated! I’ve searched high & low, & I can only assume it’s some kind of baseball medal?

Take care :)17BBC69B-E553-4FE9-87CC-AC18ACD8481E.thumb.jpeg.5cf1cd73e70de7f8818fba9f66897ab2.jpeg

This medal bar doesn`t look very promising ...

 

Regarding the 9th medal - unofficial.

Obverse bears two kanji

- water

- cooperation

Any inscriptions at reverse?

How so, do you think that they’re all fakes?

All medals and orders are originals (only ribbon for the russo-japanese war medal is a replacement) but the combination is unrealistic. Unfortunately it looks like put together bar.

    • 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.
