  1. Hi Chris, my name is Tom Foster and I saw your post in the Japanese section on the Crown Prince Voyage to Korea medal. I just want to let you know that I'm very interested in this medal if you ever decide to sell it.

     Thank you very much for your consideration.

      Hello Tom!

      Thanks for your message. This medal was the final one in my collection of Japanese war- and commemorative medals. Now I have it all complete.

      Once I'm "fed-up" with, I'll keep your contact in mind.

      Best wishes from Germany,

      Chris, thank you very much for your reply and consideration.

      If you ever "get tired of it" please contact me.

      Thanks again,


  2. Gents, Here is my contribution. I am not sure about the first ribbon as it could be a MEZ, a RAO, a KO or an EKII. Unfortunately (for me), nothing related to China. But a lovely bar with two battle clasps. BR, Chris

    Gents, For my PhD, I’m looking for all possible items (documents, photos, letters, postcards, etc.), which are related to the former Commander of the East Asian Marine Detachement (“OMD”, “Ostasiatisches Marine Detachement”). Kuhlo served in the former German leasehold Tsintao and became Japanese POW after the capitulation in November 1914. He came back to Germany in December 1919. Every items related to him are highly appreciate! Thanks in advance and br, Chris


  4. …for persons, who didn’t anticipate in any battles and for persons, who stayed in area, declared as war area- right? BR, Chris
  5. Gents, Does anybody know the award criteria of the Russian China Commemorative Medal for the so-called Boxer Uprising 1900? I understand, that there are two versions- silver (for combatants) and bronze for non-combatants. Background is attached (German) medal bar- the German China Commemorative Medal is for combatants, while the Russian version is for Non-combatants- how does this accompany? BR, Chris
  6. Meanwhile, I could solve this point. First signature is related to Sir Henry Francis Oliver, Director of Naval Intelligence, the second one is from Admiral of the Fleet, Sir Frederick Charles Doveton Sturdee as Chief of War Department of the British Admirality. BR Chris
  7. Thanks Nick! I was hoping to find more about him, especially a photos. BR, Chris
  8. Gents, Is there any information (e.g. picture) of 佐久間八郎 / Sakuma Hachirô? As far as I know, he was Lt.-Commander (engineer) and got the Crown Prince's Voyage to Korea Commemorative Medal (s. photo below). Another question would be- why did he got this medal? BR, Chris
