It doesn’t seem like 7 years. I too miss Rick and for me the hobby hasn’t been the same without him. and yes, I think about Rick often, especially when on forums or when I get a new ribbon bar or medal.
Dear fellow collectors.
I`m looking for informations on the Chinese decorations that might have been awarded to the 100+ members of the German military advisor mission.
The question came up while discussing the tunic of Wehrmacht General Hermann Starke. His tunic has loops for a breast star on the right pocket, where you would expect the German Cross in Gold/Silver. Which he didn`t received...
He was member of the advisor mission to China. So obviously that might hold the answer.
And, just by chance, does anyone know, if the German Reich at some point, revoked the permission to wear Chinese decorations? (Probably I should not ask this here?)
