  1. Thank you for posting and information. If anyone has one to sell please let me know. Thanks.
  2. I have started to have an interest in British medals and decorations. My interest has always been in researchable items which leads me to the WWI memorial plaques. Would some members be kind enough to post some pics of their plaques with the package and letters and what would be sent to the next of kin? Also what is the price range of the plaques? How difficult is it to get the persons service record? Thanks in advance.
  3. I can confirm that the above ribbon bar did come from Rick's collection. I am not sure how Rick made the attribution, but I trust his judgment.
  4. FAR 32 You did not know Rick, but he did have a great sense of humor. He spent months translating award rolls and relished the research. The results of his working, Daniel Krause and many others is used to make these identifications. Rick was, in some way a wizard. He had a fantastic memory and was very dedicated to what he did. I miss him very much as he was a close friend.
  5. Hello All, Has anyone requested the service record of a Imperial Navy officer? Have you had any success? Can you advise me where to write?
  6. Do you mean this medal bar of v.Runstedt? I had a line on it many years ago but the person who knew where it was refused to work with me despite being offered a large finders fee. I have no idea where it is now. close up
  7. I knew this bar rang a bell. I saw it before when it was up for auction. Nice bar and glad it went to a good home.
  8. I see a red flag, a KO4x without any service in China or SWA and no long service ribbon.
  9. The yellow ribbon is the centennial 1897 medal and if the person was in during the 1920's and an officer he would have / should have had at least a RAO or KO and more wartime decorations.
  10. Maybe. Are you sure the second ribbon is the Friedrichskreuz? Also is the fifth ribbon a Red Eagle order or Hanseatic Cross?
  11. I have Volume 1-3 of CDs which cover the WWI, China and SWA period. As well as Hessenthal and Schreiber Die Ehrenzeichen des Deutschen Reiches.
