jules118,

I tried following your link but I was unable to open anything from it.  Perhaps you are referring to the past sale of these medals on the emedals site?  If so, these medals can be found here;

Jules 118,

Here is a list of medals listed in the emedals auction in both Hungarian and English.  Sorry that I did not have the time sooner to do this for you.  I haven't done much work on my Hungarian collection since I moved back to Canada after spending three years in Budapest.  Boy how my Hungarian language skills have virtually disappeared!

Császár Vilmos - Hungarian medal group to a WWII Hungarian paratrooper.  In Hungary his name would be written  Vilmos Császár.  Last names are always written first, followed by the given name, in the Hungarian language.

#1 - Magyar Nagy Ezűst Vitézségi Érem - Large Silver Medal of Courage

#2 - A Tűzkereszt koszorúval, kardokkal - Fire Cross with Wreath and Swords

#3 - Legénységi Szolgálati Jel III. Osztálya - Oficers Long Service Cross

#4 - Felvidéki Emlékérem - Upper Hungary Medal

#5 - Erdélyi Emlékérem, - Transylvania Medal 

#6 - Délvidéki Emlékérem, - Southern Hungary Medal
