Medal "For Resolute Valiant Labour"

This is said to be the Medal for Bravery, 2nd class. I have no clue whether this identification is correct.

Re: Medal for Bravery

I have seen a couple of these for sale before (for about $9-$12) and both times they were introduced as something else. If I could find a clear picture of the text I could give translating it a try.

Re: Medal for Bravery

Here's the best I can do with a quick scan. I'll try sending it to my Ethiopian (really Eritrean) colleague in Geology as well.

Re: Medal for Bravery

I think it is "ለ ቆራጥ ጅበዱ ሥራ" which translates as "For Resolute Valiant Labour".

It would make this a labour rather than military award if that is correct.
