    1. Ah! Did you get it? I looked very nice. 👍 /Stefan
    2. Great! Many thanks Johan 👍 Regards, Stefan
    3. KĂŒnker has withdrawn a couple of EKs now. They've also made videos to some awards in the higher price range. /Stefan
    4. Hi! According to the book "Finlands frihetskrig Ă„r 1918" (Theslöf, Ignatius, PalmĂ©n, Soikkeli, Grotenfelt, Nordenstreng), in book 4 on page 193, there were two officers from Norway that took part on the white side in Finland 1918. I believe I've found one - Lieutenant Paul Holmeskog, Nylands Dragoner. I attach a picture from Harald Natvig's book - Holmelund is in the front. But who can the other officer be? Anyone from Norway that know this? There might be a book that can help out, but I don't have it: "Finland 1918 – Den finske borgerkrigen og nordmennene som var vitne til den" (MĂ„rten Jentoft). Regards, Stefan
    5. ...but also StĂ„lberg could be OK: StĂ„lberg; armĂ©ns rulla 1920: GM tf, Pers LSO 2.kl, R R S:t St O 2. kl, Off Pers de l’Ip, Pers förtj GM I am not that good how the Persian orders might look like. /Stefan
    6. I don't know if this has been solved in a later answer but I also believe that the first mini medal bar might belong to Nyström. I found a notice in https://xn--portrttarkiv-kcb.se/advancedsearch //Stefan
    7. Here we go... I found him in Mannerheim's Day order (dagorder) numer 60, page 2, §6. "Följande Herrar Officerare, Deckofficerare och manskap tillhörande den tyska krigsflottan belönas för tapperhet och rÄdighet med: Frihetskorsets I klass: Kontre-Admiral Hartog. ... " He got the first class of the liberty cross and I assume that it was with swords. Regards, Stefan
    8. Really nice to have it in writing 👍 Have you been able to find out more aboue Stuerz? The German archives have done a lot of digitalizing of the regiment's lists. Regards, Stefan
    9. Hello again, Here is my largest mini bar collection for one person - Eric Allan Winge - that took part in the Finnish civil war 1918 and the Winter war. /Stefan
    10. Here is another miniature bar. To a Swede in Finland 1918 and one medal is for the conquest of Helsinki - not Tampere as one would think! That leads us to that the man that got it most certainly served at the Swedish legation in Helsinki. But as JohanH recognize above - the lists doesn't always fit the medal bar đŸ€Ź My list of people that were there in Helsinki 1918 is so far: Karl Sigurd Fredriksson af Ekström Nils Leon Jaenson Henrik Leonard Lagerlöf Knut Karl Folke Malmar ...but their decorations do not fit the one below. Some of the foreign orders can come from the nations that they helped out during 1918 in Helsinki or from a attache career after 1918. So, any more suggestions? Regards, Stefan
    11. Aha, that's great that you got the red cross from a list. Is it from 1918 of WW2? Otherwise I would have had a couple of runner's up for you 🙂 I found this text regarding his wife Emy (since they lived on Lidingö): "Varje hemvĂ€rnsomrĂ„de i landet har en egen fana, den tre tungade med hemvĂ€rnsemblemet i toppen. Som en erinran om att vĂ„r frihet endast kan bevaras, om alla i sann guds förtröstan möts för att trygga hemorten, brukar man de ponera sin f ana i hemkyrkan sĂ„ ocksĂ„ i Lidingö. Fanan överlĂ€mnades i Lidingö kyrkas vĂ„rd den 26 september 1943 och har sedan dess sin plats intill predikstolen. VĂ„r fana tillkom genom en gĂ„va av dĂ„varande kĂ„rchef en i Lidingö LottakĂ„r, Emy Hildebrand. Den överlĂ€mnades till oss av prins Gustaf Adolf vid en hembygdsfest pĂ„ Bredablicksberget valborgsmĂ€ssoafton 1941." And another one: "Den 9:e november 1939 var dĂ„varande rikslottachefen fru Maja Schmidt hĂ€r ute pĂ„ Lidingö. Hon klargjorde for oss en lottakĂ„rs arbetsuppgifter och hennes ord förklingade inte ohörda. EnhĂ€lligt beslöts av de 100 församlade Lidingö- kvinnorna a en lottakĂ„r skulle bildas pĂ„ vĂ„r ö. Fru Emy Hildebrand blev kĂ„rens initiativrika och handlingskraftiga förste ordförande." //Stefan Yes, I know that feeling 🙂 //Stefan
    12. I found out this about Hildebrand... HILDEBRAND, GUSTAF Yngve. TandlÀkare, Lidingö. F. 15 jan. 95 i Jonsered (G. o. B.). FörÀldrar: kassör Gustaf Svenson o. Anna Hildebrand. Stud.ex. 13, CTH 14, tandlÀk.ex. 18, "Doctor of Dental Surgery" 20, försv. akad. avhandl. f. med. dr:s grad 31, div. stud. o. kurser i utl. 17-27. Sjukh, tandlÀk. Mounds Park Sanat. St. Paul 20, skoltandlÀk. Kungsholms folksk. Sthlm 22, ass. TandlÀk.inst. 21-23, laborator sed. 25. Medl. red.nd f. Sv. tandlÀk.tidskr. 22-26; sekr. Sv. tandlÀk.sÀllsk. 25-26. RNO, RVO (33), FFrK4kl. Ref: Kungliga vasaorden 1944. Hildebrand, Gustaf Yngve, Odont.D., Professor, KNO, RVO, KFinlLO, RFinlVROlkl, RNS:tOO1kl, FFrK4kl, LFS, f. 95. (Lidingö.) (LFS = Ledamot av Fysiografiska sÀllskapet i Lund) Ref: Ordenskalendern 1958/59 ...so I guess it might still be open for further research? Does the silver medal have any information on the back? Cheers, Stefan
    13. Hi...again - not every day that you can have some hours for yourself 🙂 I have some miniature bars too. Here is one from Nils Kindberg (1892-1984) at the Swedish airforce from the early years. https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nils_Kindberg //Stefan
