  1. I can assist with these, and would agree with your suggestions: 8: I think this is the Ottoman War Medal 9: Austro-Hungarian Military Merit Cross with War Decoration
  2. Last ribbon looks like 1918 Finnish Order of Liberty, 4th or 3rd Class.
  3. Regarding the Colonial Medals- his service record should give you an indication of what types of medals these were.
  4. I believe your summation of he medal bar is correct. Looking at the ribbon I too agree that the cross at No. 8 is Schaumberg Lippe.
  5. There is a story in our family that 2 members served with the RAF, at different times. Is it possible to confirm if they joined up? If anyone can assist, their details are: Vincent Clerkin, 31.08.1912-00.00.19?? (lived in Co. Durham) John Clerkin, 00.00.1936-00.03.2016 Both originated in Co. Monaghan, Ireland. Vincent was John's uncle. Based on their dates of birth Vincent may have served in WW2 and John probably in the 1950s/60s, but this is merely a guess. Kind regards, Pierce
  6. Just looking at this photo again- perhaps No. 7 is the Königlich Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz. What we see as a "Crown" may actually be the furl of the ribbon. The ribbon furl (at the bottom) appears to be in line with the medal next to it. Just a thought.
  7. It would fit and in the right place but I would like to hear some explanation for what appears to be a crown device.
  8. Interesting. 3, 8 & 9 look correct to me. Perhaps there is an "expert" on Turkish medals that could chip in here.
  9. Not necessarily. If your guy was in the Police between the Wars and rejoined the Army he could have 25 years service and would not be listed in the Rank List. Just something to consider. Kind regards, Pierce
  10. There is a pretty good thread on this topic in this forum already. Use the search function and it should come up.
  11. Around the neck: Top: Johanniter-Orden Bottom: Komturkreuz 2. Klasse des Herzoglich Sachsen-Ernestinischen Hausordens Medal bar: - Eisernes Kreuz (1914) 2. Klasse - Königlich Preußischer Roter Adler-Orden 4. Klasse mit der Krone ??? - Königlich Preußischer Kronen-Orden 3. Klasse - ??? something with a wreath and possibly crown device - Königlich Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz - China-Denkmünze in Bronze ??? - Königlich Preußische Kaiser Wilhelm-Centenarmedaille 1897 1: Königlich Preußische Erinnerungszeichen zur Silbernen Hochzeit 1
  12. Not a colour photo, but might give you an idea of the detail.
  13. 2. Königlich Preußischer Kronen-Orden 1. Klasse OR Kaiserlich Russischer St. ann-Orden 2. Klasse mit Stern 3. ??
  14. Breast Star: Is it the Kaiserlich Chinesischer Orden vom Doppelten Drachen 2. Klasse, 2. Stufe Looks like it, as confirmed by RL. What is the medal hanging from the 2nd buttonhole Looks like Prussian Crown Order 4th Class Medal bar: - Königlich Preußischer Roter Adler-Orden 4. Klasse or 3. Klasse mit der Schleife ??? - Königlich Preußischer Kronen-Orden 3. Klasse - Königlich Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz - China-Denkmünze or Kolonial-Denkmünze ??? - Königlich Preußische Kaiser Wilhelm-Centenarmedaille 1897 - Königlich Bayerischer Militärverdiensto
  15. I think this is Major Louis Alfred Carl Oscar Müldner von Mülnheim's medal bar. This image came from a thread here I believe.
  16. Oberbürgermeister Willy Liebel wearing his chain of office.
  17. The cross does appear to be Lippe-Detmold War Merit Cross 1st Class. The neck order could be the Reuss Honour Cross with Swords? Kind regards, Pierce
