Regrettably, this is only my first post in the Polish Militaria section. This medal is Gorgeous! I hope you enjoy it as much as I am.
Sily Zbrojne w Sluzbie Ojczyzny translate in Englis to: Armed forces in service to the Fatherland.
From my research....This medal was instituted in 1951. This medal shows Roman numeral 5, for five years of military service. The enamel is of high quality and shows a starburst pattern. I think the ribbon may be original but odd becuase the others I have seen were red and white. Someone please correct me if this is wrong and please expound if I missed anything. I am hoping to add more Polish militaria to the collection. This wasn't a bad start for a salty badge.
