  11. Hi Very interesting and thanks for sharing it with us Christophe
  12. Hi Charles It seems that the adjudant sash has been stopped with the new regulation in 1915-1916. to be sure it will interesting to read the Armee Veordnungsblatt from this aera. Christophe
  13. Hi Luftmensh just for information, there is no swords on the Hamburg Hanseatenkreuz. I know you know it. Christophe
  14. Hi I have seen this order too and like you I have a doubt. After reading my book, nothing have been made like this before. Like N ew wolrd said this is probably a one set medal, a prototype and never been on the market. I have not enough Bulgarian books to be sure. Even if I will be interested to buy it, I'd prefer pass on it Christophe
  15. Hi In DOA from 1909 Christophe In the Geile's book, the HHO3X is awarded on 20 October 1917 Bischoff received the Bavarian Military Merit Order 4th class with swords and crown on 28 November 1915. It is strange that the crown not appeared here on the BVO ribbon and appeared on the HHO3X ribbon. That's all I can find for the moment
  16. Hi here is Rittmeister Albert Frhr v. u. zu Mannsbach from Karabiner Regiment. He was born in 1877. Christophe

A rare photo of saxon officer (showing his St Henry on medal bar) with two medals from Lippe Detmold The rarity, the War Honor Cross for the Heroic Deed. Only 740 awards during the WW1.

  19. Hi Dave, Many thanks for the informations. in the 104 history unit, only 12 LK were awarded, but no date were written. Too bad
  20. hi It seems to be a good one. Here is the twin bar Christophe On your bar it is too bad that the SV ribbon is after the SA one.
