Pakistan, 1971 War with India Medal

This medal was Instituted in 1972 to award active service personnel who fought in the war with India between 3-16 December 1971. It was a very short war as within 13 days India had a very clear advantage and the Commander of the Pakistan forces surrendered. Even during such a short time Indian forces had taken around 90,000 of the Pakistan forces prisoner. The result was the formation of East Pakistan as the new nation of Bangladesh Struck in cupro-nickel with a plain suspension bar and a green ribbon with dark blue, pale blue and red stripes representing the Airforce, Navy and Army which are also represented by the corresponding insignia on the medal itself around the central crescent and star of Pakistan. The reverse of the medal has an Urdu inscription at the top with the Arabic date ١٣۹١ (1391 = 1971 A.D.) below with jasmine wreaths to either side; on original ribbon.

Belgium World War II Military Fighter Medallion

Issued to the brave men and women, who served in World War II from Belgium. It was issued at the end of World War II and is a rather handsome piece. You have the rampant lion of Belgium superimposed on a cross within a circle. The other side has a raised dagger or sword with the dates 1940 and 1945. It is a yellowy bronze metal and comes with a green, red, black, and yellow ribbon. We believe this is the first time that we have been able to offer this medallion, one that was given to the brave Belgium fighters who fought and won against great odds. We think you will like this simple but important medallion.
