Honour Sabre of the Awakened Lion
The Honour Sabre of the Awakened Lion was instituted in 1935 for awarding to generals of the armed forces, who, having already been conferred order of the highest rank, have made further contributions.
It is divided into three classes for different merit. The first class is decorated with nine lions, the second class seven lions and the third class five lions. In each case, the Chinese characters of "Yi Nan Ting Kung" (Defeat the foreign invaders) and "Wo Wu Wei Yang" (Our military might is known worldwide) are inscribed on either side of the sabre.
