  1. What is this ? Could it be a 25 cm Minenwerfer ? It looks big ! Photo taken 1915 christer
  2. Great Collection , the Silver medal for foreigners is really scarce , I haven´t seen one for sale in ten years. In 2006-2008 there was 4 ! of them sold , I was offered one for 2000 $ But I took my money and went on a roadtrip to US instead christer
  3. Hi , Very interesting pic ! There is indeed a Finnsh Liberty Cross 4th class on the ribbon bar , and if I see right the photo is taken in 1921 I looked through the ranklist of Deutches Reichheer 1924 and there is not many Hauptmann or Majors with the combo HH + BH and wound Badge is silver I found maybe 4 or 5 candidates but none matched the rest of the awards. That is a Reichsheer uniform right ? Search goes on Christer
  4. Hi Dave , I keep looking but nothing so far , but if I find him I post the pic here Have a nice summer Christer
  5. I can only find out the he was attached to the Detachment Brandenstein Com of the Detachment was Oberst von Brandenstein from 3rd Garde Kav Brig part of the detch was the 3rd Radfahrer Batallion with the Com Hauptmann von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff And your Karl Wüllner was in 54 Radfaher Kompanie which was part of the above Battl , Commander Leutnant Misgeld Christer
  6. Very Nice ! I have the names of 5 Swedish Doctors who was probably awarded the 3rd class w Red Cross 1941 but I´m not sure who also was in Finland 1939 ? They are David Lindsjö ( not in Finland 1939) Karl Lundberg , Navy Doc Felix Naeslund , Navy Doc Nils Rosenqvist , Navy Doc Sven Wahlgren , Navy Doc See if I can find any more candidates Christer
  7. Nice ones Johan ! Was they from the latest Holmasto Auction ? I saw they sold a couple of 1st and 2nd class medals without date then. I´m really suprised that Finnsih soldiers sell the medals awarded so recently , I thought they were very proud of the awards and would keep them for a long time. And these must have been awarded for actions in Afghanistan or similar I suppose- Christer
  8. Here you can see all of the different Types http://www.vapaudenristinritarikunta.fi/pages/show/4 christer
  9. Vey Nice Jovan , Most probably awarded to a Swedish Volunteer in 1939 war (4th class with swords) and then he come back in 1941 as a medic ? and got the 4th class with red cross 1941. There was Red Cross from 1918,1939, 1941 on 2nd class medal , 1st class medal . 4th class Order , 3rd class order and the extreme rare 2nd class order 1939 ( 2 awarded)
  10. Wow, Thanks Albert ! So typical , I focused on the wrong man ... Now I have to read about Klein to leran more thanks again chtister
  11. Thanks Borg for all info , the picture probably shows a English Whippet after the battle . Christer
  12. Fantastic collection Johan Its nice to see a super collection of Finnish Awards Compare to collecting German 1939-45 Orders it is dirt cheap to collect Finnsh rare awards . an Knight Cross for example awarded more then 7000 times and manafactured in ? numbers 10 000?? cost probably 10-15 000 $ I suppose the only Finnish awards coming close to that price would be the super rare pieces like Grand Cross of Liberty cross 1918 , Grand Cross of LIberty Cross w/o Swords 1918 or 1 st Class Liberty Cross with Breast Star 1918 w/swords and 1 st Class Liberty Cross with Breast star w/o swords 1918 And then we are talking about 1-10 issued awards For example the rare 1918 3rd class Liberty Cross 1918 with Red Cross , awarded 22 !! times was sold 2016 for1400 Euro wich is about the same in $ ..... That would maybe get you a empty Knight Cross box
  13. Aha , that explains it, he has a bandage in his hand ... thanks Grey christer
