  1. Nice Ones, Do you have any pictures of estonian ODM too??
  2. What does the enamelled ribbon signify?? I'm totally in dark when it comes to this particular enamel ribbon...
  3. ARAB MEDALS -- Egypt

    I think that the order of the nile is somewhat compareable with our order of the Netherlands Lion, it's awarded for special service towards the republic of Egypt and also for merit. Megan's site remarks that it might be true that the order is no longer awarded, but I have seen a picture of one of my professors wearing both the knight Netherlands Lion and the egyptian medal, also knight's class. Thus I doubt that the order is in complete disuse. Kind regards, Jacky
  4. Unknown Medal on 1957-bar

    To me, it has a japanese look to it! The loop etc, the design, I think it's one of the japanese medals, I can't look for it right now, but I hope to have give you an idea where you will have to look. Kind regards, Jacky
  5. Or the answer may be too complicated for him/her, as one might find the medals UNNAMED, thus any provenance that this group belonged to this particular man may lack!! They have now added a CMG star, but where is the breast star?? If they have almost all his medals, why not his breaststar of the KCMG? now it's a mere CMG, which might open other possibilities concerning the decorandee. I'm still wondering whether the group is named, and then whether it's officially engraved or not.
  6. Unknown medal, Chinese?

    Bigger and clearer pictures might be of help, I can't see any clear details on this medal. The ribbon loop on the back appears japanese. Kind regards, Jacky
  7. Well, the german cross in silver wasn't a medal but a breast star, thus wouldn't have changed his bar, maybe some air-raid medals as he would have been on pensioned list by then? Further also a kriegsverdienstkreuz, an extra EK wouldn't be possible, only a spangen to his EK. Thus he might have added 2 medals to his bar, very very slight chance that he might be able to earn/get some awards from romania or italia. kind regards, Jacky
  8. Wonder what kind the engraving is? Any pictures of the engravings??
  9. fabulous medal bar, is it yours??? Wonder how much this would weigh. Perhaps was it his royal connection which helped him to obtain so much gongs to go with... As he was almost always in the neighbourhood when his royals exchanged medals, he might have caught his own bit of the ODM-rain
  10. You might be able to find him in the gazettes!! I found already one hit for you. Kind regards, Jacky Gazette
  11. It's not an order nor a commander's cross. It's very usual for senates/councils of student associates to wear a badge as a sign that they are representing their association. On the site of the KMA are several pictures of the council's, all of them wearing a badge. e.g. All the members of the council are wearing a badge, the one without is the Chef du Protocol. From your picture, I can clearly see that all of them are wearing 2 chevrons, thus all in their second year with the rank of Corporal-Cadet (Korporaal Adelborst). Kind regards, Jacky
  12. Thank you roeland, however, I already translated the letter in post number 3. Kind regards, Jacky
  13. Hello Paul, I'm glad to have been able to help you. As I'm no expert, I can't say a lot about it. But based on the text on the shield itself, I think it's a commemorative gift from the council. Not something to wear, in that case it would have been just a name of the bataillon, without a mention from the council who raised the 1/2 bataillon. Thus I think it's just something to show you have been there. Other members are more expericed with these badges. Kind regards, Jacky
