  1. Glad to help, here is the 1st battalion TRF in wear. And the 2nd and 3rd for comparison
  2. Yes the title is right, 1st battalion Royal Anglian Regiment, with the red and yellow Minden flash. The other battalions have different colours. Regards Eddie
  3. I think it is an NVA Generalmajor gesellschafts uniform. However if this is the case they are sewn on wrong, the bottom of the oak leaves should point outwards. Regards Eddie
  4. Hi Norman, Cuban Guards badge is correct, probably Soviet made. There are a few threads in this section showing variations of the badge. Who it was issued to is a bit of a mystery still. Would be awarded inline with Soviet criteria i imagine. Regards Eddie
  5. Wessel, They are all different Medals denoting class or service years. Regards Eddie
  6. Hi Wessel, I am not aware that they actually wore a beret as such. They used the Tam o' shanter which was khaki or the Glengarry in Dark Blue. Here are a few pics i found for you of the Glengarry and tam o' shanter. Regards Eddie
  7. Spanish Medal for the 50th Anniversary of the International Brigades ( 1936-1986 ) and an International Brigade Commemorative Medal. Regards Eddie
  8. Steve, He was stationed at SFS Angernsee in Latvia (Lake Engure) when he got his first kill if that helps at all. Then later in action over Belgium it seems by the town names. Baltic Sea Fleet naval pilot Starshiy Leitenant Arseniy Mikhailovich Gorkovenko and his mechanic Unterofitser D. Fai on M-9 nr.8 were shot down by two German Fokker E-types of the south coast of the Bay of Riga. it was during an attack by three M-9s on Seeflugstation Angern. the crew drowned. they were with "E" (Eh) Detachement of the 2nd Air Battalion (C/o The Aerodrome Forum) Regards Eddie
  9. Not really much more info but with credit to the Great War Forum/Sepoy the following comment on this medal. Indian Recruiting Badge, 1914 - 1918 This scarce badge, which was worn around the neck, was awarded to those who assisted in the recruitment for the Indian Army. Some of the awards made to Military personnel were listed in Indian Army Orders, making note of the badge number. So i imagine it is possible to trace the recipient in some cases. Also the pics supplied with the post showing the ribbon, he also states that this particular one could not be traced. Regards Eddie
  10. Chechen Republic of Ichkeria Order of Schamil or its correct name Orden "Siylalliy Biaho"/Орден "Сийлале Бяхо" which translates to Order "Defender Of Honour". Regards Eddie
  11. Thats the one 😃 Order of Schamil, was to be issued by the Chechenian Republic of Ichkeria in 2 classes. Below is the 1st class version http://soviet-awards.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3198 Regards Eddie
  12. Hi there, I'm quite sure that this belongs to one of the former Soviet Bloc countries (or at least was mentioned on the soviet awards forum) but i can't remember which one it was. We are talking about ten years ago now, comes in 1st and 2nd class. Maybe that is a start for you. Regards Eddie
