    Ned,

    Here is a resume about this medal from this site: www.xavierb.net


    This medal commemorates the renewed Japanese intervention in China from 1937 to 1945. This undeclared war (know as "incident" by the Japanese) did not end until Japanese surrender in 1945.

    Imperial Edict No. 496 of 27 July 1939 established this award for all personnel who departed for China, so it is a very common medal. It is of 30 mm. bronze (sometimes pure matt finish or gilt finish), with the same suspender as the previous 193-34 incident war medal. The observe shows the mythical giant red crow "yata-no-karasu" but depicted with two legs instead of the three that the mythical bird really had. Army and a Navy flags surround the bird. Above it there is the usual chrysanthemum crest. Reverse shows a sea and some mountains with four seal characters.


    Ribbon is 37 mm. watered silk of 3 mm. blue, 3 mm. light blue, 7,5 mm. tan, 3,5 mm. dark pink and 2 mm. bright read. The colours are meant for the Navy, the Air Force, the Army, the blood-stained soil of China and loyalty. The case is of paste, black, with the name of the medal in silver .
