Medal Of The 6th October 1973.

Medal for the 1973 War with Israel (Arabic name not known)

With the outbreak of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, Iraq sent a large number of troops and considerable supplies to the Syrian front. Since there was no Egyptian consultation with her allies when the cease-fire was put into effect, Iraqi forces were withdrawn and relations with Egypt cooled as a result of this campaign.

Obverse: A 43-mm circular gilt medal, enemeled in concentric circles (reading inward) in black, white, and red; the white circlet bears two sets of three green-enameled stars (giving the overall impression of the Iraqi flag). In the center, a gilt triangle, edged green, with the white-enameled Arabic legand “6 Teshrin” or “6 October”. Below, on a gilt plaque, the (Christian) date “1973”. Suspended by a linked ring from a straight-bar suspender.

Reverse: Plain.

Ribbon: 35 mm, red with a center stripe of yellow interwoven with gold metallic thread; 11 mm red, 13 mm gold-yellow, 11 mm red.
