    How about trying a Google Image Search under Bulgarian Medals? The Ribbon appears to be from the Bulgarian Order of Courage, while the Medal itself is the Bulgarian Order of Merit in Bronze...
    cheers, Glenn

    Bulgarian, as said above.

    It's the Bronze Medal of Merit with Crown. The medal came in three grades (bronze, silver and gold), each of which could be awarded with or without the crown.

    The light blue ribbon with the silver edges is the "war decoration" ribbon; the red one seen above is the peacetime ribbon.

    The Medal of Merit [МЕДАЛЬ "ЗА ЗАСЛУГА"] was bestowed on non-commissioned ranks, whereas the Order of Military Merit [ОРДЕН ВОЕННЫХ ЗАСЛУГ] was for officers.
