    Japanese medals

    Post by William_Blond on Thu May 26, 2011 8:26 pm

    This medal is known as medal of China incident.

    This medal was granted to all the Japaneses that collaborated in the invasion of China between 1937-1945.

    This medal is dedicated to the entrance of Japan in China, due to an incident that began in the Bridge of Marco Polo, outside of Peking, in 1937, and this caused that began the World War II in Asia.

    As you can see, the box is very old, with an inscription in japanese that I don't know what does mean.

    I've got here a new one japanese medal. The Red Cross Medal, in silver, was added to all these people who served in hospitals and sanitary places during the WWII attending japanese soldiers.

    This medal have his own case, made with wood, and also a ribbon stick pin.

    Any of you who understand japanese, could help me to know what does mean the japanese inscription who appears in the back of the medal ?

    The reverse of the Japanese Red Cross medal says : Meiji 21st Year / Japan Red Cross Society. This is the date the Japanese Red Cross was established. Meiji 22 is 1888.
    These medals were given to anyone who donated money to the Japanese Red Cross
