    Thanks Chris! What does BMPE translate into English? The CIB can be awarded to foreign personal attached to US Army units as Chris has stated. The CIB has been awarded to foreign personal during the Korean War, Vietnam and the current war(s) ibn the Middle East. Not a common award however. Best, Greg

    Hi all, interesting that he has an American Army CIB. Also, Chris, what is the badge he has with the crossed swords on a wreath? Always curious about this badge. Thanks so much! Greg
  5. Hi all, say, I have the 1st Edition of John R. Angolia Book (Dealing with the military awards of the TR), which is a great work IMO, Anyway, I was wondering what the difference is between the 1st edition and the revised edition? Is it worth getting the revised edition? Thanks so much! Greg
  6. Hi all, I've seen a number of French soldiers wearing above their ribbon bars, a badge that's a Wreath with Crossed Bayonets. Can someone tell me what the badge is and it's requirements for award? Don't have a picture, sorry! Thanks so much! Greg

  8. Hi all! I know about the various grades and manner of wear og the Long Service Medals/Crosses of the 3rd Reich period.

  9. Hi all, I was wondering if this Order was ever worn as a neck decoration only without the Star or Sash, like the PLM? Thanks so much!!!! Greg
  10. Hi all, my knowledge on this subject is lacking and I was wondering if someone can tell me what appurtenances (Palms, Crossed swords etc) were worn on the ribbon of the various Belgium Orders (Leopold, Leopold II, Crown Orders). Also what these devices mean. Thanks so much! Greg

  13. Hi all, just wanted to get some opinions/facts on what where the highest Bravery awards given to NCO's and men of the various German states during or prior to WWI. Just the name of the award will be fine, unless you care to get into detail. Thanks so much as always!!!! Greg
  14. Thanks so much everyone!! Just what I was looking for! Sure do appreciate it. All the best! Greg
  15. Hi all, I'm sure this has been covered before, if so please bear with me. Anyway, my question is, what was the criteria for this award (to include the crown device) and was this award given according to the individuals rank? Was this also a progressive award like the EK? Thanks so very much! Greg
  16. Thanks Dave!! Do you have the breakdown for the rank/class criteria? Thanks again!!! Greg
  17. Hi, hope this is the correct forum! Anyway, I was wondering were the Diamond grade War Badges (U- Boat, S-Boat, etc) fall into play with regards to order of precedence. Do these badges "outrank" say the German Cross (in Gold), Roll of Honor Clasps of even the Knights Cross? I know that they are worn above the EKI, but what about other decortaions? I guess, just were do they "fit in"? Thanks so much!!!! Greg
