Portugal - Red Cross awards

Recommended Posts

Hello Gents,

I was looking through some old Dutch papers and found quite some mentionings about Portugese Red Cross medals awarded to Dutch military officers and men. I found the following

Red Cross Order

1930 Reserve-First Lieutenant Dr. J. Bikke (Infantry)

Cross of Merit

1936 Sergeant M. Goldenberg (Infantry)

Commemorative Cross

1930 Reserve-Medical Officer 2nd Class M. Barkey Wolf (Army Medical Corps)

1940 Reserve-Captain N.W. van Vliet (Artillery)

Medalha de Agradecimento

1935 Reserve-Captain W.J.H.J.M. Keijzer (Infantry)

Medalha de Louvor

1940 Corporal A.H.M. van Banning (Anti-Aircraft Artillery)

I can't find any sources on Portugese Red Cross awards. Does someone have more information as to what awards these could be, how did they look like, were awarded for, were instituted, abolsihed, etc., etc.

This guy has some pictures of the Portuguese Red Cross decoration:

Thanks. It has pictures of the Order and the Medalha de Louvor, but would the commemorative cross be the 60th Anniversary Cross? A little bit strange seeing that Captain Van Vliet received authorisation to wear it not earlier than 1940
