Syria, Order for Bravery
Instituted on 20 July 1964 and amended in 1976 to be extended to civilians and foreigners. This is awarded to members of the armed forces for courage and valour during military operations. It may also be awarded for more generalized courage of exceptional service in the public interest. This is the 3rd Class of the order awarded to enlisted personnel. The design is a gilt eight-pointed star with a circular central medallion showing a horseman charging left brandishing a sabre with Arabic script and green enamelled wreaths below. The reverse of the medal is blank and it is suspended from a wreathed loop with a red, white and blue ribbon with a pin attached for wearing. Unusual and never offered before.
