    Default IJN Veteran Association Medal

    Hi,

    I purchased recently this medal below, seller told me it's a IJN Veteran Association Medal. I never see one like this before, can someone confirm to me if seller's info is correct? Is this medal from WWII periode? And can someone translate to me what characters at reverse means?

    Hi Ricardo I think it may be a Imperial seaman relief association member badge but I could be wrong. Looks to have a mis or double stamp on the back and missing flower on ribbon but I like it.

    Hi Eric,

    I think you're correct, I found this very interesting page about it.

    Japanese Seafarer Relief Society Badge page 1

    I think there is a version without the chrysanthemum too.

    Eric is likely correct, as there are many types of 'military relief association' pins/badges.
    I would guess that most if not all of these types were worn by women.
    As can be seen they come in different levels or grades.

    They are interesting badges.........!
    Regards,

    From the look of the ribbon I agree yours came without the mum emblem it would have had holes in the ribbon if so. I must say I do like the look of these congrats on it.

    These remind me in a way of the 'WHW' or donation
    tinnies of the Third Reich.........
