  6. St. Anne 3rd Class without Swords

    Yes, he was a Captain in the Royal Engineers awarded the Military Cross for service at Murmansk, 1919: He was a signal officer and not a "combat" officer. I have wondered if this is why he received the St. Anne without swords. I have been told that this St. Anne is in "yellow gold".
  7. Cross of St. George 4th Class to British soldier

    Can anyone assist with these two Russian medals? http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/58451-st-anne-3rd-class-without-swords/ http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/58452-st-george-cross-3rd-class-100/
  8. Cross of St. George 4th Class to British soldier

    Number on the Cross is 127 282 within the correct range for awards in London Gazette 25th August 1915. his group was sold outside of the collectors sphere at a regional auction in the UK, I was lucky to get it for less than if it had sold within the collectors realm. The medals came from an estate with many other items relating to the family. I'm sorry I dont have a close up of the Cross, the medals are kept in a bank vault with the rest of my collection.
  9. This soldier was highly decorated during WW1 with the Distinguished Conduct Medal (awarded 1915), Military Medal (awarded 1917) and was also awarded a Civil Member of the Order of the British Empire in 1952. His Russian Cross of St. George 4th Class was published in the London Gazette of 25th August 1915.
  10. A medal group I have had for many years. The recipient served with the Army Service Corps in South Russia during the Civil War period 1919-20. The Russian medal is named on the rim although I regret that I do not have a photo, these medals have been in a bank vault with my other bits and pieces for a number of years. The soldier was a "regular" and served throughout WW2 in North Africa and North West Europe (France, Belgium, Holland, Germany).
  11. St. George Cross 3rd Class 100 ###

    I have had this cross for many years but wish to find out if the number on the reverse can be confirmed. It is numbered 100 612. The ribbon and mounting is modern. I am sorry I don't have a photo of the reverse as it has been in a bank vault with my other bits and pieces for many years.
  12. St. Anne 3rd Class without Swords

    Can any members identify the maker of this St. Anne award please?
  13. Kokoshnik marks Imperial Russian Orders

    Thank you for your responses Gentlmen. One thing that struck me as odd is that on the reverse of the St. Anne there is a right facing "head" which is supposed to indicate 1907-17 manufacture however the black enamel would seem to indicate an earlier production. Any ideas? Also the "scratch" marks, were these part of the manufacturing process or perhaps a jeweller has taken samples to confirm the gold content at some stage?
