  1. Wearing a pucelle on the shoulder shows the former regiment where he came from. Medaille Indochine, are you sure? I zoomed the placard ... the stripes does not fit.
  2. Could the insignia on the shoulder be the pucelle de 13. DBLE? Can you give a photo without the light reflection on the shoulder part?
  3. Hi, welcome. Bad Kissingen … the middle of nowhere … I grew up in Wuerzburg and Schweinfurt, Maybe you has visitied these towns. Michael
  4. Hi 12, Etoile de Comores, for serving DLEM. 10, I think it is the Sarajevo clasp, which Chris got too. 13. German DSB or later DOSB Sport Medal.

  6. Maybe the fourragère of the French Croix de guerre WW 2. But this one is not a French made. Silk an extra loop are not reglementaire, but worn a certain time. French ones are Cotton.
  7. Some of the recipients of the "fourragère a titre personel" weared these mini fourragères. They were tolerated, but "non-reglementaire". The fourragères made from sillk, having the extra loop, were called "fourragere fantaisie". https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fourragère_aux_couleurs_de_la_médaille_miltaire_avec_olives_de_la_croix_de_guerre_1914-1918_1939-1945.jpg Only Cotton ones are "reglementaire"

  11. Hi, these are older ones, non-official ones. watch this http://www.deutsche-gesellschaft-fuer-ordenskunde.de/DGOWP/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/ausgabe78.pdf , Picture 10 and this http://fourrageres.blogspot.de/ Maybe you do not have a fourragere ferret, you do have a ferret of an aiguillette.
