  5. Nickstrenk, I think the last badge is a 'Romanian Army Horse Championship Badge'. I can only assume that the city and date on the badges must be the venue for the event that year. Below are two similar badges: - Regards, Graham

  11. Kvart, Thanks. I am fairly sure that if you were eligible for the Lapland Cross you were also eligible for the Winter War medaI. The criteria to be awarded for the Lapland Cross was that you had to have fought in Lapland during the Winter War. The criteria to be awarded the Winter War medal was that had to be in some way involved in the Finnish war effort. I do know that the Lapland Cross was awarded to foreigners, so maybe you could just receive the one only if you were a foreigner. Regards, Graham
  12. The crown looks like an 'Eastern Crown' - en.wikisource.org/wiki/A_Complete_Guide_to_Heraldry/Chapter_23 and the horn - Bugle-horn stringed The wings Below is a Cap badge of Malay Regiment: ‘Taat Setia’. (similiar crown) Just a thought it might from some unit who served in the east
