Another late-issue/catch-up ORS. Research is not fully translated, but this is the gist of it. If anyone could help with the abbreviations of the unit, I would very much appreciate it! Thanks in advance! :thumbsup

Interestingly, this medal is only about 50 numbers off from an ORS awarded to a general in 1968. This yet again proves how bizarre awarding patterns (or lack thereof) for late-ORS are.
