  1. ribbon identification

    I agree that the first is most likely Ethiopian, but could also be a little more exotic like .... I have seen this ribbon mounted as green/yellow/red but also as red/yellow/green, this is btw a miniature!
  2. All, I'm hoping for a little help. A friend and I is in need of one or more photos of the German WW1 U38 Commander Max Valentiner, BUT from the WW2 period (1940-1946), civil and/or in his Kriegsmarine uniform. U38 operated during WW1 in the Mediterranean with Max Valentiner as captain. Valentiner won a Pour le Merite, which he later gave to a distant relative who helped him settling in southern Denmark after WW2. This story is beeing documented in an article which will be published in the Danish Orders and Medals Society magazine, so we're only interested in photos that can be published. We have also searched the net for such a photo withut luck, but should we have missed something a hint would also be of interest. Can anybody help with this request? /Lars
  3. I recently got an example of the Latvian flying badge to compare to the drawing shown earlier here ...
  4. Uwe and Peter, thank you for your comments, and sorry for this late reply. Uwe, after having spent some time on the net I understand that these "Siegespfennig" would be private purchases to commemorate a certain event, and should not be confused with miniature medals although they have the size and appereance as such, is this correct. Or would they be worn together with other miniature decorations? Lars
  5. Wild Card, a beautiful miniature, respect! Perhaps you'll be able to help me a little with your knowledge about these early miniatures. I recently got this one, I assume it's from Hessen, but I cannot find out exactly what it is, and from which part of Hessen - apart from the obvious text; .... Leipzig 1813. Any info on this one? Regards, Lars
  6. Gents, I hoping for a little help in identifying a Norwegian freedom fighter, I'm hoping some of our Norwegian members would use their knowledge here. The man on this photo is my now deceased fathers cousin, I found the picture some years ago but my fathers memory faded and he could not remember his cousins name anymore. I do have some clues about this person based on what my father could remember: 1. One of my fathers mothers (my grandmother) cousins were Max Manus, so he could be related to him, but I'm not sure of the family relations in Norway 2. He was quite upset about the German occupation and joined the resistance forces quite early in the war, my father remembered he was quite "active". 3. He was killed by the Germans during the war, this photo is dated 22/11-1942 on the reverse, assuming this is the date the photo were taken he must have been alive by then 4. He's last name could be "Bogstad", but this is based on my fathers family name and may not be so. Regards, Lars

  8. Ah, you bought it. Really nice to see a better picture, I was a little curious. A beautiful miniature I never knew existed before it came up.
  9. Westfale, I like it! I'm also quite taken by these small enamelled bars. If you're interested in Württemberg I can show you a enamelled 9 years service bar for NCO's 1874-1892! I suspect this is more common than yours. / Lars

  13. Mostly for you, Rudi. A rather small version, 12 * 14 mm.
  14. Well, my bet is that he's wearing a 1906-37 type Olav Commanders 1st class set. The ciphers of the Oscar type is very distinct and different from the ones on the photo (look below) and there's no lion above the crown. But interesting that he have an India Mutiny and 50 years later he gets a Olav Commander 1st class without having anything else. It's probably too late, but somebody should teach him the basics about mounting the ribbon !!!
