  1. Hi Thomas, Nice portraits of a Major of General Staff while in his service in northernafrican spanish city of Ceuta or Tetuan. I will reseach a bit on his ribbon bar but the medal in de 2nd photo is the Medal Municipalities homage to kings, Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenia. I think it is the first ribbon in the bar. It was created by royal decree of May 17, 1925 to commemorate the homage paid by the municipalities, on 23 January 1925 to Their Majesties Kings of Spain D. Alfonso de Borbón (Alfonso XIII) and Ms Victoria Eugenia of Battenberg, and express commitment to the Crown. Was repealed on December 10, 1931. Best regards Francisco P.S. Thank Thomas for help me out with the Meybauer bomber clasp in the W-A forum; I finally purchased it and its nice
  2. Theoretically, St.John's eagle had to dissapear starting 1946 regulation but still in use some time after until stocks exhaustation. Example in a courier motociclist helmet depicted in the 1946 Regulation.
  3. Perfect originals. During SCW many insignia were handcrafted locally. The simbol on the red disk is for the Spanish Foreign Legion, where the Italians enlisted as the only way to be in the spanish regular army being foreigner. I know these wings, were for sale some time ago at Flying Tiger Antiques and dissapeared, I guess were sold. Price tag too much for me. Regards Fran
