Wonderful!!! More pleeease...
BTW: Aquan, I have noticed your logo of PR of China medal ribbons. I am much interested in the ribbons of orders and medals. You are welcome to pay a visit to my website at http://www.medals.lava.pl/ Would you, please, tell me where you got the ribbons from? Or maybe you could supply me with the information about current Chinese awards.

Best regards

Lukasz

very funny! i wonder if any of those (well the majority of them) were awarded for anything but "faithful service to the DPRK". i could be wrong ofcourse...but now a question: how is it that they do get all those medals??

Their jackets are vaguely reminiscient of the harnesses Roman soldiers used to wear to display the medals they had received, only uglier. Their method of displaying awards and decorations detracts from the uniform.

Even I can tell the site is full of bad English. :-)
I guess the so-called Korean Friendship Association is actually run by their government.

Yes, generally it's OK, at least understandable. I'm a bit sensetive.

So why do you think they made such a funny name KFA since it's actually a governmental organisation?

My guess is that they are trying to avoid being seen as an official desperate attempt to get out of isolation.

I would say no. cos their sick dictator sucks, he treats his people poorly.
All they know is to ask for things, but do nothing in return. :-)
There was even a slight border tension in 1994 after China built relation with South Korea. they built a lot of watching posts towards us on the river bank since then.
But we are still their friends, at least in name.

really impresive

even Soviet in their "good old days" never wear such a quantity of decorations

But once I saw (it's a bit out of topic) on Warsaw train station someone from the Soviet train personnel who had 3 raws of such big shiny medals (very unexpectable for the railroad worker :) )

Our site wrong

Unread postby thegoodboy » Thu Apr 21, 2005 10:51 pm

That is a great picture of North Korean Vice Marshalls. I think there are about 13 of them but some were really old and may have died.

The page here of North korea is wrong in that the Navy and Air Forces do not have Vice Marshalls. The highest ranks in the Navy and Airforce would be 4-star "Army General" or 4-star Senior Admiral.

only the Army has Vice Marshalls in fact the guy second from the right in the picture was a commander of the Navy before his promotion to Vice Marshall and then he changed to an army uniform.

I wonder if they would wear some on pants when they get more medals and there's no more room on tunic.

Real good picture, thanks for sharing.

Well. First of all the Soviet decorations are more compact. :wink: Second: IMHO in that case they wear only ribbons, or wear their decorations on a spepcial band.
