This one came from a dealer from South Africa at an OVMS show several years back.

I expect that this guy was getting a little long in the tooth by the time he served in China.

very interesting the last chain of Beau - again without any long service award..... :unsure: is the china medal a combattant one??? makes not really sense at all with MEZ2 AND iron cross..... but we are here to discuss :rolleyes:

It is a combatant medal. I agree that it is odd not to have a LS award on there somewhere. With the War Service Medal, he apparently saw some action.

Beau, the problem is - and please correct me anyone if I am wrong - that the MEZ2 must be for china because in 1870 were no MEZs handed out because of the EK2...which he got - it can`t be for 1866 because there is none of the crosses for 1866 - but it makes no sense to me that someone gets an EK2 1870 and then 30 years nothing to go back in battle on the other side of the world and get a MEZ2.... maybe Bernd has any info about a possible 50+year old someone that got a MEZ2 for China...????????????? :speechless1::speechless: I can`t believe it... :(

I am sorry to read of the theft. I hope no one was harmed. I wish for a safe return of the items and a fitting end to the thiefs.
