  1. I have zero knowledge of uniforms, but to me it looks non-military... probably an ambassador or similar...
  2. Breast decoration no.2: Kingdom of the Two Sicilies - Order of Francis I Neck badge: Looks like Greece - Order of the Redeemer /Michael

    Unknown US "Freedom" Medal

    US Medal of Freedom Wiki Medal of Freedom /Michael

    French officer, help with medals

    Looks like you got them right... No. 2 is definitely the Norwegian Order of St. Olav (Knight). No. 3 can be several French orders, I think. Not sure if the Order of Danilo is Knight grade? /Mike
  5. Edw. F. Oates is confirmed on the roll for 2nd Battalion /Michael. Also marked as "In action Ridgeway 1866"

    Finland Medal Devices

    Hard to say... I believe the one in the middle of the 3rd row is for the Norwegian Freedom Cross (H7 = Haakon VII).

    Danish Medal Collection

    Looks to be a privately issued medal for - probably - a sporting event in Copenhagen in 1926...
  9. Maybe he felt the DRK was the prettiest one. That would explain why it was mounted in the first position and why the HK was clumsily added to the end instead of the beginning. It would also explain why his ribbon bar is in correct (I assume?) order - nothing pretty to show...
  10. An excellent group! Thanks for showing. /Mike
