  1. Splendid... if only I could read Thai!
  2. Plenty... some are on Medals of the World already but there are more to be added. When I'm at my hom computer I can see about uploading some for you...
  3. Very handsome, Emmanuel - thank you for sharing.

    Russian ribbon bar ID needed

    1. Order of Ushakov - to naval commanders for meritorious service. 2. Medal for Military Valour Class 2 Not sure about the rest yet, will have to dig a bit! Your man was perhaps a Naval Attaché... so a serving naval officer in a diplomatic posting.
  5. India General Service Medal 1854-1895. The clasps awarded are listed here: http://medals.org.uk/united-kingdom/united-kingdom031.htm These do include expeditions to Burma...
  6. Same ribbon as the Saxe-Ernestine House Order - pinkish-purplish red with green edges and a narrow dark blue stripe just to the inside of the green.

    Medal ID help!

    Kingdom of Romania: Medal for Military Virture, instituted 13 November 1926. This is the Type 1 (1926-1940) Class 2: Silver Medal with crown described as a civil award for 'navigating personnel'.
  8. Let me know when you are back (and PM your e-mail address) and I'll send you a copy over. I had noticed the simularity of sash and flag, rather neat :) Wonder how it is done as a ribbon bar?
  9. Thank you... 2 more to add... :)
  10. This is all fascinating and informative, as I'm working on the Venezuela section of my website at the moment! Just to add even more confusion, it appears that the entire thing was dropped and replaced in 2010 by the Orden Libertadores y Libertadoras de Venezuela in collar and 3 classes - and a quite different centrepiece to the badge, if a rather scruffy image in the Spanish version of Wikipedia is to be believed. No idea as to the design of the stars worn by Class 1 and Class 2, yet. The ribbon is yellow/blue/red with small white stars on the blue stripe. I have found the law creating it, In Spanish of course, and am struggling my way through a translation (my Spanish is at the 'May I have a beer, please?' and 'Where is the bathroom?' level!). If anyone's good at Spanish I can send a copy over, she says hopefully... I have found an image from earlier this year of a 100-year old musician called Juan Vicente Torrealba receiving the Class 1 of the order - you can see the stars on the sash and the star but it is not at all clear.
  11. Fascinating, thanks Antonio.
  12. Review now posted (see Books section below).
  13. My copy has just arrived and it's beautiful! More coherent comments to follow after I've stopped drooling over the pictures and actually read it!
  14. Of course, it's Eid al-Fitr isn't it. Have a wonderful festival. Eid mubarak.
