  1. Oberst Karl Günste. Genstschef d. XX. Korps Hermann Freiherr Kövess von Kövessháza (30 March 1854 – 22 September 1924) was the final, and completely ceremonial, Commander-in-Chief of the Austro-Hungarian Army.
  2. Hi Demir, would like a copy of your Harp Madalyasis book!

  3. De nada !
  4. Yes there are records in the Ottoman Archives in Istanbul but there are several books and one has to go through the books. The problem is they were written in Arabic alphabet and one need to know that. Also, the date on this Medal is the Occupation of Istanbul by the Allied forces 13.11.1918. The name Grazia (thanks in Italian) and the date is interestind. There is another point, that space is allocated for the names not a name and a date. Especially after the occupation the Allied army people had access to everything and there was a puppet Government. Regards Demir
  5. Hi Chris, yes they are Crimean period Orders. The one on the left is the 5th class. The other one is most probably 4th Class. Regards Demir
