  1. Hi, The medal planchet seams the same, just the ribbon is different, maybe these are older issues?
  2. Hi JapanX, Sorry I do not think it is that one, it looks too big to me. I have attached a Dutch recipient.It is the Navy captain in white, who is wearing it.
  3. Hi, Does anyone has a good picture from the Chinese modern Ba Yi meritorious service medal? Sampo
  4. Hi Dodyory, This is the order of the Ethiopian star, grand officer grade. If it is the medal alone cased, I would say between 250-300USD, if the document is included 350 USD. It is not a very rare medal, but then again not very common with the case and document. Sampo
  5. Dear Lenaerts Jannick, What a stunning Belgium group. Do you have any documents with them? And can you tell me the number on the back of the Chungmu? Is the Bronze star named? I would really like to know more about this medal group. Regards Sampo
  6. Hi Nick, They are definitely French, the last one is the Ordre Ouvre Humanitaire, (for Humanitarian aid). I did see the others before but I cannot recall what they where called. Sampo Hi, I just found the middle one, it is the LA MEDAILLE DU TRAVAIL ET DE L'UNION DE LENS.
  7. Hi Jeff, There where at least 3 Greek officers who received a Legion of Merit, most likely for the Korean war. In the third picture, I think to recognize the legion of merit in the Greek commanders ribbon group. (second form the right at the bottom) Regards Sampo
  8. Hello Sal, I was just checking out older posts, and was wondering if you where able to identify this ribbon group? Cheers Sampo
  9. Hi Demir, Thank you so much for this information, what a great medal and group. I was in Istanbul a few years ago and checked out the group of Yashin Tazici, which was awesome too. On this forum I also have seen the medalgroup of Rustu Erdelhun, and it was in Istanbul. But when I was there it was not on display! Do you have any contacts to be able to ask for the star colour and numberst on the Ulchi? And maybe if thee are any other groups containing Korean military merit medals? The group of Erdelhun is here: Cheers Sampo
  10. Hi everyone, I am trying to do research to bronze star awards given to the foreign troops during the Korean war. Is there a list of recipients somewhere available. At this moment I am looking into the Greek recipients. Hope someone can help me. Kind regards Sampo
  11. Hello Demir, We talked to each other a few years ago in the Netherlands at a SRO meeting. I am researching Korean medals. This group, is it located in the museum in Ankara? Is it possible to ask them if they could give the number from the back of the Korean Ulchi medal, and is this star on the ribbon gold or silver? I asked the same questions with success in Istanbul military museum. Maybe they have more Korean war military merit medals in other medal groups? Kind regards Sampo
  12. Hi Everyone, Yes, he was in Korea, but arrived after the war had ended in 1953. So he is not entitled to wear a DUC nor a KUC, and he wears both of them. Sjors
  13. Hi Yannis, Thank you for your reply, and I am looking forward chatting about these medal groups! Have a safe trip and just let me know whenever you are ready. Cheers Sampo
  14. Hi Yannis, Sorry if I implied that I really owned these medal groups, that is not the case. I only am searching for pictures of these nice groups. Anyway I tried to find out how to remove the picture, but I was unsuccessful so far. I will have to ask the moderator. Is it possible to know the number and name of this beautiful group? Kind regards Sampo PS: I really want to state: I do not own the medal group, just the picture.
  15. Hello C54PLM, What an awesome medal. I am researching Korean medals given to foreign servicemen, and I was wondering what number does your fathers medal have on the back? Kind regards Sampo
