  1.     That´s a For merit medal, It seems bronze, so 3class; There are some wit crwon and wihtout...with the head of ferdinan, as young, and elderl, and with the head of Bori III, last timr. I think the phrase is: "za zasluga" or like the thing must be write and pronounced correctly.... They can seen with the war cross ribbon, blue with silver treads if awarded for war merit, or, in plain red ribbons, as awarded in time of pace, or not in conexion with a war

  3. Sorry boys, i' ve consulted my turkish medal books but i can' t find any similar to this bronze medal Can you help me Thanks Miguel
  4. I´ve just bought a greek bar that comes with some papers and photographic documents of the owne. IMHO, Antiestrategos is like General of division, (in Spanish Army,- I don´t know if this is Lieutenant General in Britain-...) The medals seems to corespond pretty well with the service bar the owner bear in the photos....Only, the "For Bravery " cross seems to sew to the bar as an aftertought....??. The medal lost seems the Phoenix order , that in the bar (rossette) seems be officer class...¿?, Some ideas and help about this bar will be wellcome.... Thanks beforehand Miguel PS/ It seems that the general has retired in 1979...as I own their jubilee officers club card with this date and their born date is: 1923, (59 years??) at Koronis-Nautoy-Cycladic (islands??)
  5. That is an example, at the "Liverpool Medals" company, that shows the Albanian retreat medal in the FIRST place, even before a M. Obilich medal.... That´s odd enought!!! Miguel

  7. I´m in search of another french crimea medal I´ve got 16 years ago in Cambridge, it´s named to a: "C. LORDIERE 10e de L. 6332", in capital where I put it...I´m searching and has a 10e de Ligne in the Division du General Dulac in the assault to the Malakoff, Sebatopol, "The assault columns were marshalled from the 6th to 7th September (Histoire: 365 to 366): MacMahon was to attack the Malakoff; La Motte Rouge the curtain wall and batteries flanking the Malakoff; Dulac the Petit Redan; Lavaillant the Central Bastion; D'Autemarre the Bastion du Mat. The Imperial Guard were to be held in reserve to strike the decisive blow (Bezancourt: 444)." -But the medal comes with the Sebastopol Bar, only- (and 3rd Division:General Dulac: 17th Chasseurs; 10th, 57th, 61st, 85th Line; Reserve: Chasseurs of the Imperial Guard; 52nd and 73rd Line), As I´ve not see any Lanciers reg. at Crimea OOB, so, It must be "Ligne" What do you think about...... Thanks Miguel
