  1. Glad you like them, a few more, around the Crimean war, a few French included http://mashable.com/2016/01/06/crimean-war/#Z52jowPW6uqw
  2. Hi all, just for those interested, I came upon this site which I found interesting, images of Napoleon vets in their original Uniforms. very interesting http://mashable.com/2014/10/27/napoleonic-wars-veterans/#3wawo94uOEqU
  3. Hi Larry really fine work as usual, regards Alex Just to keep the ball rolling a while longer One that's a little bit different, I'm 99% sure I've got the decorations correct
  4. Hi Thanks for your comments ref. Immelmann, I do like to be as accurate as possible, I do make some mistakes, so based on your comments
  5. Hi, thanks, I did this for a member of someone's family member, I was told which service branch he was in. regards Yes I was aware of it being Prince Adalbert, attached a few more members of his immediate family, I've yet to add Prince Eitel and the Empress, (They are not real postcards!), Got their Grandad and a few Uncles somewhere I think
  6. Nice to see new postings in the thread, one I've dug out quite interesting for me, taken in Southern Austria WW1 Ice Tunnel regards Alex K
  7. Hi Simon, thanks for the extensive quantity of information, so it's one of the many in the Ashcroft collection, should have guessed he would have it regards and thanks Alex K
  8. Hi all, I'm doing a bit of research into VC recipients and came across this image, does anyone know who he is and the actions that resulted in the award of the VC, as usual any help much appreciated regards Alex K
  9. Hi Yes it's genuine, these are my examples, the most difficult and expensive one to collect is the Aircrew Europe star, (Far right, top row), this is heavily faked, (some quite good), the latest addition is the Arctic star, bottom row, second left, this I suspect is a wearers copy, but possibly useful for display purposes regards Alex K
  10. Yes great research, amazing how quickly information can be brought together, I will now note his name on my copy of the image. Thanks all
  11. Hi Andy, no other info but it does seem fairly common to wear on the left side, some images from a colonial uniforms website, and a British Victorian uniform
  12. Hi Guys, thanks for the tips, Romanian order of the star actually begins to seem like a good possibility looking at it now, (I had my Imperial German state hat on) regards
  13. Hi all, another request for identification, I came across this image, but can't identify who it is, looks fairly distinguished with an impressive medal array, any one got any ideas who he may be? secondly, the last medal on the bar, for some reason I've got it in my head that it's the Order of Henry the Lion, however reading other threads, the swords were only positioned at the bottom of the medal or later crossed through the centre, (Not the top), am I barking up the wrong tree? regards Alex K
  14. Thank you both for the response so the "Silver" version I posted is merely faded gilt then. regards
  15. Hi all, I wondered if someone could answer a seemingly simple question, attached are two images of the BMVO officer cross, one gilt, the other silver, I can't seem to locate any positive details of the full list of classes which list the officer cross in gilt and silver, did they exist in two finishes and if they did why the difference since they are both classed as "Officer"? thanks Alex K
  16. Got a chance to add to my Grosskreuz, an example of a nice Souval with OLS, so I thought I'd do it, the case is quite hard to find, It's an early "De-luxe" version of his RK cases, the other type he offered was more basic. the EK1 is a war-time version. Now looking for a minty set of very early RK and EK2. regards
  17. Hi all, bit of help again with medal ident. attached a picture of George of Saxony, plus his medal bar, looking at it I'm a bit stuck on two of them, any help appreciated as usual. regards Alex K
  18. Might be a case of "Who you know and not what you know"!,
  19. Hi looking at the original, there is no glove on the left hand, (fingers nails are just about visible), as for an injury on his right hand, could possibly be, caption doesn't mention anything regards
