Egypt: Palestine Medal ("Medalyet Falasteen"), ND circa. post 1952 issue; manufactured by Tawfiq Bichay; weight: 27.55g.
Seven-sided (heptagonal) medal based on the original pre-1953 design of 3 standing soldiers above fleeing [Palestinian] civilians, with burning town in background, with dates "1948-1347", but lacking on the other side the portrait of the now deposed King Farouk (June 1952). With green-red-yellow ribbon.
The date of this medal's institution is unknown, but was issued for service in the 1948-49 Arab-Israeli War and appears to have been issued for many years thereafter: Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak, who did not serve in this war is nevertheless a recipient of this medal.
