  1. hello, it was just ID, by one of the members specialized in medals. It must be Scottish and indeed most probably masonic related. The coat of arms and the motto are those of the Dundas familly. "Dundas Comte de Zetland - Ecosse - (Baronet, 16 nov. 1762; baron Dundas d'Aske, 13 août 1794; comte de Z., 2 juillet 1838) - D'argent au lion de gueules enclos dans un double trêcheur fleuronné et contre-fleuronné du même Cimier une tête de léopard de gueules couronnée à l'antique d'or brochant sur un bosquet de chêne de sinople englanté d'or Supports deux lions au naturel couronnés à l'antique d'or colletés chacun d'une couronne de chêne de sinople englantée d'or portant chacun suspendu au collier un écusson celui à dextre d'argent au chef-sautoir de gueules et le canton d'argent ch d'un lion de sable (Bruce) celui à senestre losangé d'argent et de gueules (Fitzwilliam) Devise ESSAYEZ" Une médaille d'origine écossaise donc. D'autre blason de la famille DUNDAS presque similaire existent.Peut etre une loge maçonnique....
  2. Sorry wrong section, it should have been posted in; Germany: Third Reich: Research, Documentation & Photographs if a mod could adjust my mistake, please, I would much appreciate.
  3. hello all, a colleague on a French forum is looking for any info regarding a member of his family who committed suicide after the plot of 20 July 1944. He only has a picture of the burial and the name and rank, major Deming, active LW officer at that time.
  4. Thanks Peter! I did found a similar one on the net, but don't know what it is worth (speaking about the info!).
  5. Hey Peter, no it is definitely Spanish with the coat of arms in the hilt. Wasn't able to post more pic's in my previous message, should post this one first.
  6. forgot to show you this one. Can't tell you much about it, except that it is marked Toledo and 1854. 97 cm long.
  7. Just got some additional information. The city of Rouen happens to be the godparent of the ship "Jeanne D'Arc" (a school ship), that explains why the medal mentions here.
  8. The guy's replied it is a life saving medal! The coat of arms is from the city of Rouen. Other medals of that kind can be seen at; http://www.semon.fr/LES MEDAILLES DE SAUVETAGE_3.htm
  9. It was id on a other forum, as "probably" being a Dutch officer's M 1813 n°1 for light cavalry. A other forum said Dutch all right, but about 1820.
  10. No problem, my pleasure. You must be able to erase your email address from your previous message.Otherwise you can ask a mod to do it for you.
  11. Hey Magnus, people can contact you by personal message when clicking your pseudo. It just isn't a good idea to put your email address on a public forum.
  12. I can ask on a French forum if you want...
  13. Hey Peter, thanks for your reply. It is indeed a sword that has the look of many others of his time. But there is always a small detail that doesn't match with the ones I can find on the net. Thanks for the date the company started, I have been searching for it, but couldn't find it!
  14. Hello all, would anyone know what sword this is please? Got it wit a German sword out of the woodwork and when I bought it, thought it was German too. It had to go quickly ;-) Until I opened it at home...signed A Ronge Liége.
  15. Very nice for what I have seen, so far! Here is how Belgium started the war. Here is a veterinary of the Garde Civique (sort of home guard/national guard). Very soon dismantled after the war, because the Germans didn't see them as regular army men, and didn't take them prisoner, they were shot on site when caught. The color of uniform and helmet is dark green, the helmet misses his spike (actually it broke of, I still have it), the next helmet is black and shows how it should be. Got a regular army lancer as well, but need to find his pic.
  16. I sold my bilingual and got my self a uni lingual one, and will continue that theme;
  17. Found the one on the top left, last week, the other 3 on the net after doing some research... A new collection is started!
