Hallo Gents,

For some reason the word "Romanian" has been shortened to "Roma" in the title!!!! ;)

I took this picture today, but did not get a chance to ask the owner what all the ribbons stand for.

Some of the 16? I recognise such as the:-

Top row: Romanian 15 & 20 years military service medals

Second row: All unknown

Third Row: All Unknown

Fourth Row:

2 - MONUC United Nations Observer Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

3- ISAF Non Article 5 Medal.

Hi Kevin

I can identify 2 of the ribbons for you from items in my collection.

2nd row, No. 1 (blue with broad yellow stripe) is the Emblema de Onoare a Armatei Romaniei (Emblem of Honour of the Army of Romania).

3rd row, No. 2 (green with 3 narrow yellow stripes) is the Medalia Stiinta Militara (Military Science Medal). This has 3 classes and the ribbon mini bars in my collection have thin horizontal red lines (1, 2 or 3) to denote class 1, 2 or 3.

Hope this helps.

If you can email me with info. as to how to post images nowadays I'll put some images on the forum. I used to be able to do this but something has changed over the years.
