  1. Aha, Thanks Rick ! This Leutnant Goesta Nils Arvid Bruzelius had in the rang list of 1923 following awards: Austria Military MeritCross 3 cl with war decoration and swords Military merit medal in Silver w swords Military Merit medal in Bronce w swords Mobilization Cross 1912/13 He was born July 24th 1885 and had no swedish awards in 1923, he must have had joined the Austrian Army and fought in WW1 . An interesting story I?ll see if I can find out some more of this fighter in a foreign Army. He was at a Cavalry regiment nr 2 in the south of Sweden, died 1970. Christer
  2. Hi all collector Friends, I am now working with a "BIG" project. Listing all Swedish officers with foreign awards at this moment I am lsiting Austrian awards and found a interesting fact. A Swedish officer who had been awarded with the Karl Truppen Kreuz among other awards. What was the rules for KTK ? I thought it only whent to Austian citizens ?? Anyone has any info Christer
  3. Very Nice Set Rick, I didnt know they awarded theese posthumous ! First one I have seen Christer
  4. I won this ribbon bar today, what do you think about it? EK II NC 1870?- Preuss War Aid ( or KR O ?? ) - RA O ? - 1870 NC - LS - 1897 or is it EK II NC 1914 - War Aid - Hamburg - Ehrenkreuz f?r Witwen - LS - 1897 ??? as the seller claims ? I just love NC ribbon bars Christer
  5. Thanks Rick, you are the Greatest!! And you are right, he do look like McNee .... And now I have ask myself why I didn?t bought the Saxon band XXIX band , perhaps Daniel has a copy left? Think if naughty Kurt could now what interest hes old ribbon bar caused about 70 years after I kind of like the "against all rules" , putting hes 1912 EH3a on the bar. Now I can go to bed ( it?s 23.00 in Sweden) and dreaming of...... yes Diana Rigg ! All the best from Sweden, good night Christer
  6. I got it !! Now can someone tell me who this Saxon hero was! And what is the medals on his bar??? Christer
  7. Thanks Hardy for the Great Map ! It really adds some coluor to the story, It would be interesting to visit the area where he fell, I have a lot to places to visit when I retire..... Christer
  8. Ohh well another bad seller out there ! It feels like 7 out of ten ribbon bars nowadays are fake ones, ten years ago it felt like the opposite. It seems to go the same way as TR awards, a lot of fakes and very few real items. Well not so much money and a new seller on my black list There are a lot of sellers from Germany/Austria now selling fakes. Anyway Happy Easter to all of you and Thanks God for Bulgaria! Not many fakes there (so far) Christer

  14. Sometimes a small and common object can tell a great story. Here is a example ! A small ribbon bar with only three awards, nothing much too see, a typical Saschen EK decvice but value? maybe 10 $ , but what is the story behind such bar? Wait and see... Christer
