  1. Saw this Red Eagle with oaks on Emedals. Looks very nice imo. Question, was the RAO2 awarded with and without Breast Star?
  2. You’re way late on your comment and to be honest it doesn’t help the content of this thread. I’m sure you’re aware on private messages. Someone had brought it up before and a member withdrew. I typically don’t say much about these things but you really reduce my enthusiasm to share my collection and knowledge. If you want to help you can remove the the postings that worry you. I’m not hear to argue so no need to begin one. thanks and I’ll give thought to continuing my contributions. I’d prefer the administrator delete the entire thread

  4. Does anyone on this forum collect Austrian uniforms and headgear from WW1? I have great interest but haven't found many people who also share interest in uniforms of this period. If anyone has items please share images.
