  1. Hello C54PLM, What an awesome medal. I am researching Korean medals given to foreign servicemen, and I was wondering what number does your fathers medal have on the back? Kind regards Sampo
  2. Unknown French war medal, any help?

    Hi Megan, Yes I am reffering to the last one in the row. I would like to know what it was given for and from which organisation it is, I have never seen one like this before, and as the Dutch are not very admissable granting the acceptance of foreign medals, I got curious about this one.
  3. Hi Brett, Thank you for your comments, if any questions on Dutch medals, just let me know. And yes some are really well designed, on the last two pictures the medals are from Sweden(north star order, and sword order) Here is another one from the modern conflicts, enjoy!
  4. Kingdom of Portugal

    And here the matching star to the commander of Henry the Navigator commander...
  5. And some more groups...
  6. Gentlemen, I found a French medal in a Dutch soldiers group. But I cannot find any information on this one. It is probably received for service during world war 2, but unknown to me. Does anyone can help me out? Sampo
  7. And one more Dutch army bar with service in Lebanon, former Yugoslavia and the Gulf war 1991.
  8. Hello, Time for some new medalsets: here they come..
  9. Hello, I am searching for pictures, names, groups that contain the Korean orders of military merit. Is there anybody out there who wants to share these information, and pictures? As a starter I will post one of mine! Cheers This is one of a Greek air force pilot. And one from a Dutch infantry officer:

    Hi Tsand, Welcome to the forum, I think the fastest way to ID what you have is to post pictures of them here in this forum, usually there will be a solid answer within a day. Every member will be pleased to help, and so am I. Just share the pictures with us. Enjoy going trough your treasure! Regards Sampo
  11. Hi 922F, Very true, but it seems to be the same type of ribbon as the Belgium military cross, usually if the ribbon for mounting is not available, the nearest collor ribbon is used.
  12. Hi Guy, I think this is a Luxembourg order of merit, as this is a very common combination with the ECMM medal. The Luxembourg government awarded the Belgium and Dutch members filling places in the ECMM mission during the Luxembourg precidency of Europe(because Luxembourg did not have enough people) with this merit order. Regards Sampo
  13. Hello Guy, I think the first one is the Ethiopian order of the star, and the second one is the order of the Homayoon of Iran. This was most likely a military person who served at the royal house of Belgium. Sampo
  14. Hello Guy, I think the bottom ribbon is from the European Comunity monitor mission, as is the ribbon just above it. They are both the same. The top one seems to be mounted for wear, the bottom one is the original as issued in the box. (the same as I got in 1997) Kind regards Sampo
  15. Greek dealers
