  1. Dear Friends, A collector in the US has sent me this document in the hope of finding out about more about what it says. It relates to a Kriegsmarine engineer who has transferred back to civilian service with the Reichsbahn. I believe it mentions him being confined to barracks for 3 days (Stubenarrest?). Does it state the reason? Any help that can be offered with this would be appreciated. Many thanks Pierce

    Unknown Chinese Medal

    Many thanks. Your help is appreciated. I assume this is the Junior grade, 1st class?

    Unknown Chinese Medal

    I would appreciate some help with obtaining the name of this medal, and what ribbon goes with it. Thank you Pierce
  4. I would not rule out the 5th ribbon being for the Turkish Liakat Medal. It has a red stripe on the edge of the ribbon, which the Bavarian Jubilee Medal does not. It is more clear to be seen on the reverse of the bar.
  5. The Chilean ribbon is correct for this time period. Kind regards Pierce
  6. Is this him- Oberst a.D. (Honour Rank List 1926)? What was his firs name?
  7. Can we see the rest of the ribbon bar? Can you date it to the time period you describe?
  8. Hi, I write to ask for some information on the Romanian Honour Cross of the Order of Merit. I can find very little online. 1. Was this Order given during period 1930-1945? 2. Was it awarded to foreign military personnel (German)? 3. Could someone please post a photo of the Grand Cross during this period? Many thanks Pierce

    Japanese Marine Officer?

    Hi, Would anyone be able to put a name to this Japanese Naval Officer? Thank you Photo
  11. The medals both look fine, but there should be an eagle device on the blue service ribbon.
  12. Gentlemen, Regarding the Romanian Order of the Star Grand Crosses that were awarded during WW2- what is the significance of the crown on top of the breast star? Here are some examples with and without the crown. Maybe it relates to Swords being on the star? Many thanks for any help offered. Pierce
  13. Peter, I think your supposition is correct, though I have seen this Baden ribbon being used in lieu of the Spanish Order of Naval Merit- but I think with the Zahringer Lion on the bar, it is the Jubilee Medal. Interesting that the Hungarian Commemorative Medal is not at the end with the other foreign award. Pierce
  14. This is the pre-1932 ribbon but with a later cross.
  15. Thank you for your help. You are the Romanian expert! Kind regards Pierce
  16. Is there any way of working out who this General was? The certificate is dated 12th November 1936. Many thanks Pierce
  17. 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
  18. Thank you for this link Claudio. Kind regards Pierce
