  1. Bayern, That is interesting. Maybe it was a given that people would know who the crown prince and princess were by their effigies? Sorry about Argentina's loss to Mali in the U20 World Cup yesterday...it was a good match.
  2. Bayern, Thank you for you for the reply as well as your time! Best, John
  3. Hello, Can someone please help me identify this medal? I suspect that it’s from Croatia and that it commemorates an anniversary, wedding or state visit by a king & queen or some other royalty. Thanks! John
  4. Egorka, thank you for the quick reply as well as for your time and effort. So it is a veteran's group?
  5. Hello, Can anyone please help identify this Soviet Submarine Badge. I think it may be an anniversary or an educational badge from the Soviet Submarine School. Thanks, John
  6. Hi Mike, Wow I just read my post with all of its errors...no more cell phone posting for me. No, thank goodness the medal is not named.
  7. Hello, Can someone please help me to correctly Identify this medal? It appears that them medal started of as The Military Medal GV and then the "For Bravery in the Field" was buffed down )shadow markings) and then stamped "Distinguished Service". Can anyone please shed some light on this? Thanks, John
  8. Peter, I would imagine the Sgt Major would have been and excellent and competent soldier/leader. Too bad he didn't get to enjoy the victory or his medal.
  9. Jonas (aka: GRA) - Thanks for the heads-up on the book "The Cavalry that Broke Napoleon" I just ordered it from Amazon! Owen: I'm going to take advantage of Ancestry.com free trial 14 day membership. Paul W & Paul 1957: Thanks for the info and sources. I can't wait for the holidays to be over and the in-laws to be gone and the kids are back in school so I can start the research undisturbed. I'm really looking forward to it. Best, John
  10. Hello Gents, Thanks for the replies and I appoligize for the delay in getting back to you. Here is the requested pic but please provide no information:
  11. Hello, I am a veteran medal collector but I am very new at collecting British Medals. I recently purchased this 1815 Waterloo Medal named to a soldier in the 1st Regiment Dragoon Guards. I am very excited about this medal because it is the oldest medal I have in my collection and most expensive. I am withholding the recipients name because I know that there are some people who are very helpful who tell me everything I would want to know about the soldier but I would prefer to do the legwork myself in order to get the experience in researching British medals. With that being said I do need some help with a starting point for my research and was hoping that someone could please point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance! John
  12. Polish Order of Virtuti Militari – What Time Period? Can anyone please help identify the time period of this Polish Order of Virtuti Militari? I checked in Dr. Wesolowski’s book on Polish Orders, Medal Badges & Insignia but to no avail. Thanks, John
  13. XII Fiera Campionaria Internazionale – Padova 1930 I picked this medal up ( XII Fiera Campionaria Internazionale – Padova 1930) several years ago while in Italy and I just recently re-discovered. The medal appears to be some sort of an award for the 12th International Trade Fair in Padova in 1930. I was wondering if anyone has ever seen this medal before and if it is was an official medal issued by a local government (province or city) to the organizers who planned, organized and executed this event? The medal is too well made and ornate just to be a souvenir. Best, John
  14. Hi Robert, Thank you for the quick reply and detailed answer. It is a smart looking badge. Best, John
