Reproduction of what?
Brilliant – thank you.
If the white ribbon with red edges is for the Order of the Rising Sun, then the blue / white / blue ribbon is surely for the Japanese 1914-1915 ( or 1914-1920) War Medal ?
Hideous fake (both the man and the uniform).
Every good wish to the gallant people of Norway, our long-time allies and friends.
I am certain you are right Frank – thank you very much indeed.
Thank you also for the link to the Tito site.

I’d like to thank both Pauls for very interesting contributions and to ask Paul (Demoge) his view on the idea that a version of the medal was issued as early as 1898 by the FCVME (Fédération des Combattants Volontaires des Missions Exterieures) which may be distinguished from later versions by the fact that the early version has a ‘béliére tronconique’ – which I translate as a faceted (rather than a spherical) ball suspension.
