I'd like to get a small rising sun flag to use as a background for the case I'll put these medals into...
Next additions will be a wound badge and a Sacred Treasure. I'd like to add some proficiency badges too...
will make a nice display.
Sounds like a nice project -- good luck and keep us apprised.
For those of you who don't know...
I picked up:
1937-1945 China Incident War Medal (rainbow ribbon)
1904-1905 Russo-Japanese War Medal (white, teal, blue ribbon)
Order of the Rising Sun, 8th Class (silver leaves medal, red and white ribbon)
Red Cross Medal (red and sky blue ribbon)
If anyone could suggest pieces to add to this new collection, please let me know!
I'd like to add a Manchurian Incident medal, too...
I'm kind of embarrassed to say so... but these medals are still somewhat of a mystery to me. Would you mind telling me what had to be done to earn them? Specifically, the rising sun and sacred treasure. All I'm finding is: "Civilian or Military service to the emperor..."
