  1. The first one is Ethiopian, the second one looks exactly the same as the first one on the third row. Only the Belgian Military Cross doesn't has a Commander/Grand Cross variation. No idea which order it must represent. Herman
  2. It's a ribbon for a different medal! The green stripe is too close to the edge. Check it with the correct ek2 ribbon to the left. Regards Herman
  3. Yes, so do I. I will replace the bars with some 'made in france' 30-ties bars. Any opinion about the brooch Bilco? Thanks and Regards, Herman
  4. Yes ! This picture was sent to me upon my request. It confirms my thoughts. Now I hope it's original. Herman
  5. Does this looks like a 30ties French product? The bars are original US stock. Herman
  6. Nice medals, Nick. Keep them coming.
  7. Gent, i'm no expert in this field, so I ask you the German medal experts, is this one genuine? Thanks in advance, Herman 2nd picture
  8. A Dutch miniature group. (Not in my possession). The owner retired as a Major General and Adjudant General to the King.
  9. Identification

    I'm sorry, but even then the ribbons are in the wrong order. The 1915 star is always before the BWM, which precedes the VM. This means that the IGS worn in a medalbar like this, always has a post WW1 campaign bar. Cheers Herman
  10. Identification

    He is wearing the 1915 star, ww1 war medal, victory medal, and the igsm. If you turn the ribbon bar around they are in the correct order. He wears them vice versa. So, for someone born in 1927 he wears some strange ribbons. Cheers Herman
  11. A nice example of the Commemorative medal of the Minister of Defence 3th class.
  12. How about this Dutch group. It has a Slovak campaign medal. Received in Uruzgan, Afghanistan in 2009. To put a face with the name. Meet General (Infantry) Peter van Uhm. This picture was taken at his retirement date.
  13. Simon, thanks for the explanation. It is more clear to me now. Now I just have to find the rest of his medals. Regards Herman
  14. Thanks Simon for you reaction. I am not familiar with these award rolls, never seen one. What can be seen on such rolls? You mention several units but no dates. Are the units you mention from his WW1 service? I know that in 1914 William Allington was assigned to the 2nd batalion of the Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regiment. (2./Queen's Regt) with servicenumber S 317 and the rank of Lance Corporal. Does your a/m list means that he served in WW1 with the 2nd, 6th, 1st and 6th batalion of the Queen's (Royal West Surrey) Regiment respectively and ended the war in 1918 as a Sergeant? Cheers Herman
  15. Dutch/German

    Hello Andy, you're presumption is correct. The card is probably written by a Dutch conscript to a German friend or family member. The marking in two lines reads: 1.I. / 5. R.I. This means 1st company, 1st batalion, 5th Infantry Regiment. Regards Herman
