    Ethiopia : Emperor's Bodyguard Long Service Badge

    Many thanks Owain for your expert answer ! Regards, Hendrik
  2. Hello ! The badge below has been described on commercial sites as a long service badge awarded to members of the Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie's bodyguard. Is there any truth in that and, if so, what number of service years would this light green coloured badge stand for ? Regards, Hendrik
  3. Hello Rav, I wish ... haven't come across any yet. Regards, Hendrik
  4. Hello Ravenft, The Belgian government went into exile near Le Havre (France) and some medals were produced by French firms at the time. Their job was taken over by Belgian manufacturers after the war's end. Regards, Hendrik

    Japanese Order ? ID Help request

    Hello, I'm looking to find more information on this breast star which seems to have elements of both the Orders of the Golden Kite and of the Sacred Treasure in it. Its reverse suggests Eastern European manufacture to me. But then again, I could be completely off ... Any help on identifying it etc. would be welcome. Regards, Hendrik
  9. Hello Noor, Portuguese Order of the Tower and the Sword, I think. More often seen on a blue ribbon ... Regards, Hendrik
  10. Thank you, Peter, for your illuminating input ! Shall we settle on either "Divisional Train Transport" or "Divisional Transport Train" for the time being and until a better description is offered ? Regards, Hendrik
  11. Hello Gents, I've recently been able to acquire 2 campaign medals that I believe to have belonged to the same recipient : General Service Medal, bar Iraq, to "4526 DVR. ALLAH DAD. S&T. CORPS" and India General Service Medal, bars Waziristan 1921-24 and Mohmand 1933, to "O-153463 DVR. ALLA DAD,17 D.T.T. COY." Despite the missing "H" in the second medal's naming, could they indeed have been awarded to the same person ? As to the units involved, I think S&T Corps stands for Supply and Transport Corps but I have no idea as to what a D.T.T. company is other than presuming it is also transport related. I would appreciate being enlightened on the subject ! Regards, Hendrik
  12. Hi Sampo, There's a few Belgian ones mentioned on this page : http://hmc2.pagesperso-orange.fr/en/spotl/korcitations.html Regards, Hendrik

    Belgium medal

    Hi Marius, FI/OF stands for Front de l'Indépendance/Onafhankelijkheidsfront PA = Partisans Armés MP = Milices Patriotiques All three are WW2 resistance groups. Regards, Hendrik
  15. Hello Simon, Quite correct. The only exception, AFAIK, would have been the British War Medal 1939-45 : permission to wear it was refused by the Belgian authorities as the recipient would also have received its Belgian counterpart, the 1940-45 Commemorative Medal, for the same services rendered. Regards, Hendrik
