  1. Thank you for your help. You are the Romanian expert! Kind regards Pierce
  2. Many thanks for your reply. After translating this I think he is a good match- in particular as he was the Military Attaché to Germany at this time. Does this article say he was the King's honorary adjutant between 1930-1940? Kind regards Pierce
  3. Is there any way of working out who this General was? The certificate is dated 12th November 1936. Many thanks Pierce
  4. Thank you for this link Claudio. Kind regards Pierce
  5. Gentlemen, thank you for your help with this.
  6. Thanks Paul. I'm on the trail of my ancestors. Do you know if there are many online records available? As I say, this is a new area of research for me.Pierce
  7. Gentleman,I hope this doesn't seem like a silly question but my knowledge in this field is limited.Did all regular British Army soldier's receive the British War Medal as well as the UK Victory Medal?My thanksPierce
  8. I believe Prinz Friedrich zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg is wearing the Portuguese Military Order of Christ.
  9. Hermann Göring received the Grand Cross, which counts for that one but I have not been able to find out many recipients of the 1st Class. Here are three: -Generalfeldmarschall Walther von Brauchitsch -Generaloberst Franz Halder -Generalleutnant Ludwig Keiper
  10. He is wearing three breast stars: Order of the Crown, Grand Cross Order of SS. Maurice & Lazarus, Grand Cross Order of the Colonial Star, Grand Cross
  11. Lukasz Thank you for checking this. Regarding Göring, I agree- it was a mix up with the Yugoslav Order of White Eagle, which Göring had from 1934/1935. Kind regards Pierce
  12. Thanks for your reply. Yes, this is the page I found but I also came across this one: https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kategoria:Odznaczeni_Orderem_Or%C5%82a_Bia%C5%82ego_(II_Rzeczpospolita Here there are 116 recipients listed, including Hermann Göring, which is probably a mistake! Does Wesolowski give the names of recipients?
  13. I came across this table of stats on German wiki and I wanted to know if the names are known of the 34 German holders of the 1st Class of this award? No source was given there unfortunately. I assume the names are out there as the figures seem to be detailed and not just rounded off. Thank you Pierce
