  1. The Chilean ribbon is correct for this time period. Kind regards Pierce
  2. Is this him- Oberst a.D. (Honour Rank List 1926)? What was his firs name?
  3. Can we see the rest of the ribbon bar? Can you date it to the time period you describe?
  4. 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
  5. Japanese Marine Officer?

    Thank you Nick.
  6. Japanese Marine Officer?

    Hi, Would anyone be able to put a name to this Japanese Naval Officer? Thank you Photo
  7. The medals both look fine, but there should be an eagle device on the blue service ribbon.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. This is the pre-1932 ribbon but with a later cross.
  11. Is there any way of working out who this General was? The certificate is dated 12th November 1936. Many thanks Pierce
  12. Thank you for your help. You are the Romanian expert! Kind regards Pierce
  13. 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
  14. Thank you for this link Claudio. Kind regards Pierce
  15. Gentlemen, I would appreciate some help regarding the grade of this Princely Hohenzollern House Order. Is it Commander Grade by any chance (worn on/below the left breast pocket)? My thanks Pierce ' alt='' class='ipsImage' > ' alt='' class='ipsImage' >
  16. 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
  17. Gentlemen, thank you for your help with this.
  18. 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
  19. I believe Prinz Friedrich zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg is wearing the Portuguese Military Order of Christ.
  20. 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
  21. 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
