    1. Hello; Did someone(s) put together an Award Roll for the Wurttemburg Friedrich Order? I'm looking at Lt.d.R. Oskar Sigg. I know he received the Friedrich Order 2nd Class w/swords on October 27, 1916, but I don't know of any other awards. Thank you, Claudius

    6. Hello; Does anyone own the Patrikeev volumes that have the rolls for the St.George Cross and Medal winners? I would like the name and award details on a 4th Class Cross # 1 223 342 and a 4th Class Medal, # 129 304 that I have. Thanks, Claudius StGeoCross4C 1223342.heic StGeoMedal4C 129304.heic
    7. Hello; I have noticed that many Imperial Russian medal bars don't have pins or loops to attach them to the uniform. How did they do it orginally? I'm attaching photos of the backs of two medal bars. I realize that one of them has a soldered on safety pin for attaching to the uniform but that was obviously done some time after the medal bar was constructed. It only further illustrates my point that the medal bars HAD an attachment system, but it wasn't used in later years, and in some cases just a big safety pin was used instead.
    8. "The Queen is dead...long live the King!" (I always wanted to say that, but as a colonist and her long reign prevented it until now)
    9. Hello; Does anyone have or have in a book, a photo of Uhlan uniform from the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna Regiment (early WWI period)? There isn't one in my "Uniforms of the Imperial Russian Army" book by Boris & John Mollo. And I can't find one online. (I found a photo of Empress Alexandra Feodorovna in her regiment's Uhlan uniform, but that is not what i'm looking for.) Thanks,
