  1. There is no roll- yet. One is in progress.
  2. That is a Hanovarian Waterloo...look at the ring. fantastic image.
  3. By the way- that is definitely Shartle. If you google his name- photos of him show up in 1918/19 on the US General Staff as a Colonel. He lived onSpring Street in Portland, Maine and is buried within sight of his first command out in Casco Bay in Evergreen Cemetery next to his wife of 50 years.
  4. ah ha! That is part of the set of Schartle estate Berlin attache’ officers’ photos sold off by the Arringtons and then resold by dealers! Congrats! I may be able to get the Thai prince photo.....I have a lead...... all of these guys were interesting. I suspect there is a damn good book in this set of biographies, if only Rick was still here to enjoy/ write the story.
  5. The badge was an official issue but I thought was officers and WO types only. This guy was not in Mexico- but sports the FJ commemorative/ anniversary medal and the war medal- with two other medals. Glenn would of course be able to say more on this guy.
  6. I can not say for certain without researching first, but there are a number of semi official 1956 medals awarded by various Hungarian institutions after 1991.
  7. Yeah, It looks too “ new” and in spots deliberately aged. Also the stitching pattern and backing look very much like the bars produced by the faker in Vienna.
  8. whoa. Is that a white SA? or gold with the sun reflecting off of it?
  9. nice! Did the Nasseurs carry their flag that day? I think I read in Haythornwaite they did not.
  10. That is the coolest pic! Congratulations. Most of the Nassau troops at Waterloo were quite young. Some companies had an average age of 18! Odds are that guy fought at farm on the edge of the battlefield. By the way, what is the SDA?
