  3. Komandir RKKA, I think it may be a 'Finnish Winter War Bothers-in-arms badge'. Regards, Graham

  7. Thanks for all the information in this thread. Below are my three Italian Victory medals: - Firstly - EMILIO SACCHINI Second - S. JOHNSON Lastly F.M. LORIOLI & CASTELLI I believe them all to be Official medals.
  8. Photo's of Hans Luthardt wearing his Knights Cross won on 31 July 1943 and his Father in uniform in France 1917. Being awarded the Knights Cross by General Elfeldt Luthardt's father in France in 1917
  9. Toot, Thanks for the question. The Knights Cross in the picture is a Steinhauer & Lück with an 800 marking on the cross. I will post these two photo's and one or two others in the 'Germany: Third Reich Awards, Decorations & Medals' section of the forum for any further review. Regards, Graham
  10. Great thread. I have this Cuban Vic medal which I believe is an Official type 1. Any opinions would be welcome.
  11. Oliver860, At first glance it looked like an Unofficial Type 1, as classified in the book 'World War 1 Victory Medals' by James P. Michels Jr. (jonnymac on this forum). But looking at it a little closer there seems to be too many differences, so in my opinion I do not think it is an original. Below is my 'Unoffical Type 1' for comparison. Regards, Graham
