  1. Hi Nick, you helped me out some time back regarding a relative. I had a follow up question that related to what his military rank was?

  2. Nick, Could you please PM me?  Thanks, EJ

  4. Dear JapanX

    I am Japanese award document collector. I usually find your reply to post on the Gentlemen Military Club Website.

    I am looking forward the hand-signed by Japanese emperor award document (any of the 3 emperor). If you have  them, do you want to sell them?

    Best Wish

    Hi - I was looking at your threads on this award which i've been hunting after for a long time - you seem to be the expert on it!

    Appreciate your feedback on the following - the reverse looks OK but the front... not sure... fake?

     

    thx

      Sorry for late reply Bob (I didn`t get the email about your new post) 

      I am currently writing an article (maybe even a liitle book :) ) about these and other inner mongolia pieces.

      So maybe a liitle bit later one piece will be available ;)

  7. Can I get your advice on a Russian Life Saving medal?  I am the owner of Lot 5158 Hermann Historica Auction #72, the estate of the Piano Composer and virtuoso Xaver Scharwenka, of which this medal is a part.  A pic is online but I can send another to you if needed.  It came on blue ribbon but not sure if correct.  I've searched all my meager references but was unsuccessful in locating anything on this item.  Do you know it and its background?  Thanks a lot.   Bob Schmidt

      Cross inscriptions are the same, dear Bob.  

      As for the differences - most likely yours was privately ordered.

      Hi Bob,

      about the badge

      http://maletin.euro.ru/level2/carizm/badges/obv_spas_3.htm

      So ribbon is the wrong one, because there was no ribbon at all. 

      Only blue rosette.

      Example of such rosette

  9. New to this forum but in desperate need to get some help in trying to establish some family history.

    This is a photo of a relative. The "family legend" tells that he served in the personal guard for the tsar family - and yes I know this can be a very wide description. There are lot's of different parts that are referred to as to tsar Nikolaj II personal guard. Nevertheless this is part of what I am trying to establish. The photo is from 1915 and he is 25 years old. It has always been said that he was highly (?) decorated and there was reference that he had been awarded the St Georges Cross in all 4 classes. Now from what I can make out from this photo - the 4 medals to the left do seem to be St Georges Cross - they are all identical from what I can see.

    What do you think - are these St Georges Crosses?

    Secondly - any guess on what the other medals might be? I make it to be 5 more medals - not sure if the last item is a medal or a symbol for the regiment?

    Thirdly - anyone talented in identifying imperial Russian uniforms and could tell/guess what regiment he belonged to?

    Finally, is there somewhere a list of who was awarded these?

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom on these,

    Sincerely

    Peter Romanov

      Hi Peter, 

      he was indeed one highly decorated soldier.

      1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th class St.George crosses.

      +

      3rd and 4th class St.George medals

      one of the last three medals looks like commemorative medal "300 years of Romanov house".

      Couldn`t figure out with certainty what are the others two.


      +

      He has a regimental badge of His Imperial Highness Grand Duke Tsarevich Alexei Nikolayevich Lifeguards Moscow Regiment .
