  1. Hello guys, what do you think of the Dorotheum auction held next week? https://www.dorotheum.com/auktionen/auktionstermine/aktuelle-auktionen/kataloge/list-lots/auktion/11321-historische-waffen-uniformen-militaria-sonderteil-die-kuk-armee-im-ersten-weltkrieg.htmlhttps://www.dorotheum.com/auktionen/auktionstermine/aktuelle-auktionen/kataloge/list-lots/auktion/11321-historische-waffen-uniformen-militaria-sonderteil-die-kuk-armee-im-ersten-weltkrieg.html http://www.flipmag.com/swf/syuKWNpLB9http://www.flipmag.com/swf/syuKWNpLB9 lots of tasty stuff in my humble opinion cheers
  2. I have a medal for zeal with ribbon of the St. Stanislaus Order awarded to an austrian police NCO . Unfortunately i dont have the documents,only some photos. Maybe you could help me ...
  3. It is interresting because I have one that belonged to a colombian Pilot, an later Comanding Officer of the colombian Airforce. He was on a training in the flying base of "El Palomar". When he finished the trainig after 4 years he was awarded with the Badge. And in the web I once read that it was very common in the 20ies and 30ies to send pilots from all over South America to traings in Argentina . Probably because the had the best Airforce (in South America) at that time.
  4. Nice collection indeed. Could you please show me bigger pics of the different flying badges, especially the argentinian one.
  5. Well the austrian NCO bravery System was the Following: Goldene Tapferkeitsmedaille Silberne Tapferkeitsmedaille 1. Klasse Silberne Tapferkeitsmedaille 2. Klasse Bronzene Tapferkeitsmedaille So it is Probable that an EK 2 would range as a Siler Bravery Medal 2nd class. But the Germans awarded the EK just to officers and never to NCOs. Instead the Allgemeines Ehrenzeichen.
  6. I don't think he got the EK 2 because he was an NCO. The EK2 was only awarded to Officers, the NCO got the Allgemeines Ehrenzeichen. BUt on the picture you see him wearing either the Golden or the Big Silver Bravery Medal, the small silver and the bronze one. Which if you add the KTK and probably the Wounded Medal is close to what a NCO could get as awards.
  7. As far as I know there were polish who fought in WWI in the Austro-hungarian Army and later on fought under the British. The most prominent was General Stanisław Sosabowski. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanis%C5%82aw_Sosabowski http://www.sosabowski.com/generalcv.html http://js2031.y0.pl/sosabowski.html
  8. This bar was institutet for veterans who had served in another army (like the Wehrmacht),so they would add the time of service to the one of the bundesheer. The problemm was, that it was institutet much later so many veterans recieved the normal one, without the bar.
  9. This is Hungarian Peoples Republic "Youth Medal of Merit ". But I have no image of the Decoration
  10. Sorry I missed that. So as this is the Uniform of a Hauptmann of the J?ger I would propose the following Combinations:
  11. First you have to say if its an old(er) Tunic (50ies,60ies) or a newer one. Then there are several "common" combinations I can offer you.
  12. I am sorry to say that, but you are all wrong This is a bogde of a Non Govermental Organisation: SCADTA Sociedad Colombo Alemana de Transporte A?reo (Colombo-German Air Transport Society) It is probably a Pilots Badge, for those who made their pilots exam and were in the service of The SCADTA. That is what I found in the web. http://scadta.org/ http://web.me.com/scadta/Scadta-Fluggesell...Willkommen.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCADTA http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.sear...inct_entry=true I guess its not much but I certainly solved the mystery and for this I shod be awarded
