  1. Hello speedytop, a very beautiful item. In this form the first type (1863). Those where usually named. Named items are scarce. This one was accorded by royal decree of 14 december 1864 : Lemyé Jules, ouvrier ébéniste, à Bruges. Moniteur Belge 16/12/1864
  2. New in my collection, a British War Medal and Merchant War Medal both named to " FRANK GOYSENS". I have found at the NA his medal card but I have to order this in order to see what is written on it. I was wundering if some one has a full list of the MWM awarded to Belgians. Is it possible to find out the shipslist or ship he was on ? greetings, Werner
  3. hello Kvart, posted with pleasure. J.L. Wall has the Swedish nationality, I have forgotten to mentione this. You can find this information in Bulletin Officiel d l'Etat indépendant du Congo, 1887-1908. This was the official publication for new laws etc. There is also a study, not published, from a student from the military academy in Brussels by Erik Peleman 1989-1990. I can provide the list for the Order of the Crown. The Leopold II order was not given to any Nordic recipients prior to 1910. For a similar list after 1910, you should look into "Recueil des lois et arrêtés royaux de Belgique" witch would be a big job and I did not have found the time yet. As there are 5 Orders, the only one not mentioned is the Order of Leopold. This order was also give to foreigners but not especially for Congo. The Order of the African star, Order of the African lion, Crown order and Leopold II order were instituted by Leopold II for services in or to the Congo. thank you for posting the pictures. Werner

  9. a second class Iron Cross Werner
  10. hello, The medal was never to be hanged on a ribbon. At first the medal was a second class award but very fast replaced by the Iron Cross second class ( 1st class has a golden rim, 2nd had a silver rim). The Iron cross 2nd class was also replaced by the Iron Croos 1st class, meaning that the 2nd class is very rare to find. The 2nd class (silver rim) was worn on a black ribbon with the national colours red and yellow on both sides of the black. You often see the medal mounted on different ribbons some even mounted with a crown. After that the medal was replaced and it was usually given as a souvenir to those who received the Iron Cross 1st class. This medal also excists in bronze made for collectors. best regards, Werner

  12. hello Saxcob, a very nice and interesting set of documents. greetings, Werner
  13. hello Chris, thank you for the information posted. i have to appoligize because I made a mistake. It is as Chris showed: T. CRAEYNEST. I also did some smal research on the internet and I found at the site of the National Archive the following : http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/SearchUI/Details?uri=D1986739 I will shortly post the pictures regarding T. CRAEYNEST. There also was an MBE military which would have belonged to the same person. Perhaps I should order a copy of those cards at the N.A. hoping they bring some interesting information. Werner

I am a collector of Belgian orders and medals with a special interest on the 1830-1832 period. Reading this topic, I would be very interested to find a list of the Belgian awardees of the BWM. There are two items in my collection, named to: - A. LAVAUX - V. CRAEYNEST Werner
