  1. Thanks to all on this one! I have replicated his medal bar on a previous thread. I never would have gotten many of the breast stars. Good work!
  2. OK, I can make out the major neck orders (Grand Cross of the Iron Cross, PLM and the Annunciation Order) and some of the breast stars: Black Eagle and the Annunciation Order and what looks like Order of the Prussian Crown at lower left. What else?
  3. Does anyone have better photos of the complete shoulder cord/aiguillette of the Prussian generals' parade tunic?
  4. The tentative conclusion is that this combination was not worn by the 'big shots' who held active field commands in WW1, for example, prominent field marshals or colonel generals. Pity, as it's an attractive medal (FJ order).
  5. I used to belong to OMSA but no longer, and my long-time contact there, John Roysten, I believe has sadly passed away. So, I don't think I'll be able to access this trove. Thank you anyway, Wild Card. If anyone can supply a bit of this ribbon, please let me know. I'd be happy to buy some.
  6. Does anyone know of a source for the 15mm size ribbon for the 1866 Koninggratz cross?
  7. Alex K: Thank you for all the help! I am now set! Best, Phil
  8. Alex K: Yes, thank you. I found the VC device; not sure which is appropriate for the DSO and MC; 'Moons'?
  9. Does anyone have a source for the small devices on British gallantry medal ribbons that denote repeat awards? I am trying to replicate Maj. James McCudden's ribbons and cannot find a source for these anywhere online.
  10. Ian: Thank you! Both the Iron Crown and the Franz Joseph look like non-combatant awards...no laurel leaves on the Iron Crown and the FJ is not on the war ribbon. I don't think it would make a difference if they were otherwise, as far as precedence, yes?
  11. I hope we can find some pictures of these. I assume the EKO-R3 would precede the FJO-R?
