  2. Hello, I just find a small and nice ribbon bar. The 1st place is IC 1914, 2nd place could be war merit medal, and the last one is Hindenburg cross, but I can't really sure about the 3rd place. Is it Anhalt Albrechts orden, Turkish Order of Osmaniye, or else? Thank you Windu

    Different Style Red Cross Medal, what is it?

    Thank you very much Nick!
  7. Hi Gentlemen, I just bought a red cross medal, the design is different with usual Japanese Red Cross Medal, but I believe the inscription on the reverse looks like Japanese. It probably made of silver. Sadly, it came without ribbon. Anyone have information about this medal? Thank you, Windu
  8. Hi Gentlemen, I just got a medal bar from a Facebook friend, a 4-place medal bar for a bargain price. The 2 stars are fine, the war medal has many knocks, and in the Pakistan Independence Medal named: 3231734 SEPOY. MISRI KHAN.8.PUNJAB.R. It doesn't have any pin/needle on the back side. Is it good or bad? And where can I find more detail about this man? Here's the photo: Best regards, Windu
  9. Yes Peter, it clearly has been remounted for display.. I believe that they had been mounted before with loose-style medals. The war medal has many dent on it's observe probably resulted from the edges of the Burma Star. But I could be wrong.. You right Peter. It seems that if the soldier had no gallantry medal or mention in despatches, it will be difficult to find the record. Also, "Misri Khan" name was pretty common to be found in Punjab and other nearby region. But I believe this man was from 6th or 8th battalion as he had Pakistan Independence Medal named. Pakistan gained it independence in 1947 if I'm not mistaken..
  10. Thank you very much, Do you know where I can find the record of the man?

  12. It's an admiral, probably Wu Shengli, 7th commander of PLA Navy (2006-2017). Most of the ribbon are long-service medal as belows (per years of service) the yellow ribbon probably the level of the power (as same as vice chairman of other similar rank):
  13. I recently bought a Vatican Order of St. Sylvester commander class from a local auction, I wonder if there's a name record of the recipients to track down the recipient because I think there's not many from my country (Indonesia). Cheers, Windu
  14. When I looking for expedition cross to some antique dealers here in Indonesia, none of them have it, but one of them offered this Ster voor Trouw en Verdienste / Star for Loyalty and Merit complete with it's ribbon and case in very fine condition. This star established on 1 January 1894 and ceased after 1949. At first it consists of 4 class: 1. Great Gold Star 2. Small Gold Star 3. Silver Star 4. Bronze Star in 1924, a new class introduced by then Governor-General of Neth. Indie: the Great Silver Star. Despite the "Great" and "Small" nomenclature, the five grades of the star were all equal in size, consisted of a badge in the form of a 12-pointed star with straight rays, suspended from a ribbon worn on the left chest. Anyone have the information about the list of recipient of this star?
  15. Thank you for hijacking my thread with such incredible information and outstanding collection Pieter, I owe you! Do you know when they change the observe seal from lion from looking-to-us-type to looking-inward-type? This is the first time I saw the star certificate. Fantastic! The certificate belongs to Samadia (local pronounciation could be Sumadia), Depati Mangku (Chief Village) in Pagar Djati, Onderafdeeling Benkoelen-Seloema (present day Bengkulu Province). About my star, I got this star from a local antique store so I believe this was stored before the war and almost forgotten until one day someone found it and sell it to antique store.
  16. Yes, there were many of them, but most of them didn't survive today. These stars were given to local people of Netherlands Indie (present day Indonesia) who worked for the Netherlands Government. As this star often associated with pro-Netherlands people, I believe most of them were destroyed/thrown away after Indonesian independence in 1945 because people who wear/hold/keep Netherlands-thing in after 1945 to late 1960's (before Papua Integration to Indonesia) were considered traitors. But somehow, some of them are survived and made it's way to antique market..
  17. One the example: Mr N Barus, chief vaccinator in Karo (present day North Sumatra), was awarded Small Silver Star by Mr van Lierre. (photo taken from google)
  18. double post - I'm sorry - moderator please delete this one.
  19. Hi Emmanuel, I believe "1a circunscripcion" doesn't mean conscription but it means "1st district" as the explanation papers said that the president Emilio Aceval divide the territory to "6 circunscripciones"
  20. Wow, very nice find.. The Sultan Azlan Shah of Perak Silver Jubilee decoration is also made by Royal Insignia..

    Recipient Order of Yugoslav Star

    Paja and Dragomir, thank you very much for the photos. Amazing research gentlemens! And I just knew from you that a Sacred Star/Bintang Sakti was awarded to a foreigner, and it's Tito. Sacred Star/Bintang Sakti usually given to Indonesian military personnel for bravery act against enemy. Well, so this one must be special.

    Recipient Order of Yugoslav Star

    Wow Paja, thank you very much. Those photos are proof that Soekarno and Tito were really close back then. Guerilla Star is rarely awarded to foreign leaders. Usually Soekarno gave Bintang RI Adipurna (RI Star 1st class) for foreign leaders One of the criteria of Guerilla star is that the recipient had been struggled in a war (as a guerilla) to gain or protect the independency of the country.
