  1. All, Can anyone confirm and provide award dates for Grand Cross MFKO to the following: Karl von Baden (1832-1906) Wilhelm von Baden (1829-1897) Max von Baden (1796-1882) Wilhelm von Baden (1792-1859) Francois-Joseph Lefebvre Duc d'Danzig Nicholas I Tsar of Russia Thanks, John
  2. All, I was wondering if someone in the military received this order, did they receive the military division of it? More specifically, if it was received for war service, either gallantry or in the case of military leaders, outstanding leadership in war, instead of for length of service in peacetime. This would also include non-Belgians. John

    Karel Hora

    All, Does anyone know what type of citations Karel Hora received for his Croix de Guerre. In Geoffrey Bogga's La Legion!, it states that he received 7 or his CdG TOE, 5 for his CdG 39-45 and 2 for his CV. Just curious if these were palms or stars? John
