    Netherlands cap badge

    It is the badge that belongs to the "Regiment Huzaren Prins Alexander" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regiment_Huzaren_Prins_Alexander Or are the sides not red but orange? If they are orange, it is a badge from the "Regiment Huzaren Prins van Oranje" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regiment_Huzaren_Prins_van_Oranje

    A Good Beginning...

    Are there more versions? And is there a list with all the versions? Many thanks in advance.
  7. Absolutely wonderfull pieces.
  8. The last thing is a comemmorative medal, for the 50 years reign of Wilhelmina. About the first rosette, I really have no idea what it could be. The red,white,blue ribbon can be from the "Ereteken voor orde en vrede" and the orange from the long service medal for NCO's and enlisted men. The second one, is the purple really purple or maybe faded red (Legion d' Honneur??).

    Japanese Awards - Order of the Rising Sun

    I've a 8th class version that is awarded to a Dutch Sergeant. I've been trying to find the citations for the award, but our National Archive didn't have it. Is there a way of researching it in Japan?
