I can't even find it on google. It was in an Obit: "Member of the order of the black palm"

Any idea what Black Palm is? If you have only 2 lines and you add that to the Obit.

Not sure. I think it has to do with the military, I am thinking maybe jungle warfare in Vietnam or something? That was my first instinct on it.  Ask your DH and see if he has heard of it?

There is a Somalia military medal (per wiki) - the order of the palm and there is a wood called black palm. That is all I have  been able to find.

Yeah odd isn't it!

"member" and "order of" makes me think, and then why put it in the Obit.? Must be important to give it that place. Of course, if someone here is a member of this order, they probably won't be able to say so! enlightened
