  9. Does somebody know what kind of bestowal document was given with the westphalian order of the Crown (1809 – 1813): a letter like for the Légion d’Honneur or a diploma like the dutch “ordre de l’Union”? Where could I find a photo of such a document?

  12. The number of the Scheltens's brevet is 1.505. Henri-Chrétien Scheltens (Brussel 1787 - Brussel 1880) served in the french army during the napoleonic wars. In 1814 he was "sergent au 2° grenadiers de la garde". He entered then the dutch army and fought at Waterloo. In 1829, captain in the king's guard. He leaves the dutch service in 1830 and come back to Belgium where he becames "colonel commandant de la place d'Ostende" (1846). Retired in 1848. He was knight (1814) and officer (1847) of the Légion d'Honneur, knignt (1816) of the Netherlands MWO, knight (1833) and officer (1856) of the belgian Leopold's Order, knight of the spanish order of Villaviciosa; St-Helena's medal (1857) and Dutch Cross 1813-1815 (1865). Colonel Scheltens lefts interesting " Souvenirs d’un grognard belge. Les mémoires du Colonel Scheltens". In the first frame, it is the medal of the "Frères d'armes" of Mons. In the second one, it is a medal of an association of Brussel.
