  1. Hi , I have the names and dates for all Finnish awarded 1919-1936 ( 1st type) that is 230 names , (Forgot to write that the numbers is for Commander 1st class.) Commander is more often awarded of course) During the same time 477 was awarded to foreigners , so twice as many outside Finland. Will look if I can find something online Here is something about the Order in English https://www.ritarikunnat.fi/images/flipbook/guide/mobile/index.html#p=39 All the best from Sweden Christer
  2. Thanks Andy , That was super interesting , a almost forgotten small unit from the Great War . What I could find out the Gruppe Lindau was a Bavarian unit. maybe I can find something in the Bavarian rank list. Thanks again , now the man in the Bodensee Flotille at least has a thread here to their memory Christer
  3. Just bought a Postcard sent August 1918 , and stamped Deutsche BodenSee Flotille Gruppe Lindau Does anyone know anything of this unit ? Had Germany marine Troops in BodenSee ? Or is it a Marine Air unit ... Christer
  4. posted in another thread but I suppose it fits in here A Saxon non fighter from 1870/71
  5. A new non combat medal bar , 1870 /1871 Cross + missing the steel 1870 war medal Interesting combo Christer
  6. I have this bar , think its quite unusual with a bow mount for a gentleman ? Could it be for a woman Bavarian nurse for example ??
  7. I saw a Mannerheim Cross for sale from Auono Kuiri at Bukowskis. a 2nd class went for 25 000 Euro ? Do not remember when 2011 The 2nd class awarded to Oiva Rönkä was out for 40 000 Euro ( but i couldn´t be exported out of Finland) And Tiainen says that 220 Mannerheim Crosses 2nd class where made against 8 1st class I think a genuine Mannerheim Cross 1st class should reach about 100 000 Euro probably ? Would love to see pictures of the 1 st class mentioned in this thread Does anyone know how many are known in Finnish Museums ? Christer
  8. Hi again , I War museum the had this one, labelled as a 38 cm rocket launcher from WW 2 . But I haven’t heard of such a Gun ? Could this be a WW1 Minenwerfer ?
  9. What is this ? Could it be a 25 cm Minenwerfer ? It looks big ! Photo taken 1915 christer
  10. Great Collection , the Silver medal for foreigners is really scarce , I haven´t seen one for sale in ten years. In 2006-2008 there was 4 ! of them sold , I was offered one for 2000 $ But I took my money and went on a roadtrip to US instead christer
  11. Hi , Very interesting pic ! There is indeed a Finnsh Liberty Cross 4th class on the ribbon bar , and if I see right the photo is taken in 1921 I looked through the ranklist of Deutches Reichheer 1924 and there is not many Hauptmann or Majors with the combo HH + BH and wound Badge is silver I found maybe 4 or 5 candidates but none matched the rest of the awards. That is a Reichsheer uniform right ? Search goes on Christer
  12. Hi Dave , I keep looking but nothing so far , but if I find him I post the pic here Have a nice summer Christer
