  1. It was pretty common in that time that they used the crest, initials of emperor, national colours and the portraits of emperor and his family on everyday used objects as a sign of patriotism....
  2. ...look here.. ...but i dont think it has to do something with army or imperial family or so. just a nice ornament for a draft horse...

  13. ..here one nice set of cross 2.class...
  14. ....I would say its because befor the war was the KD (Upper Layer) made of gold, but the Cross alone from Silver, so the lower part was strucked together with cross and there upper (gold) part of wreath then added.... During the War were "old" dies used - with place for layer of gold

  17. Dear Collegues.. Looking for any informations on austrian officer named Thomas Crewe-Preston (sometimes written as Creve Preston), in 1845 Oberlieutenant of Kurassier Regiment Nr.4. Born 10.2.1816 in London, died 10.8.1849 in Bosing near Pressburg (now Pezinok, Slovak republic). Mentioned in 1837 as Cadet of KR.4, later Unterlieutenant, from 1844 Oberlieutenant. Married to Antonia Edle von Nedeczky (*1825+1850). I found the Grave of them, want to find some informations on them.. Maybe it would help to raise some money for reconstruction of the gravestone. Thanks Ivan
  18. ..thanks to colleague and also Austrian Black Cross i have some new informations. In the military records is the birthyear 1818 (no exact date). Can someone registred on the british genealogic web try to look after some Thomas Crewe Preston (or only Preston or Crewe) born in London in that time?
