  1. Thank you, Paul. Sadly, he passed away in 2006. He had been a CW2 with Army CID, and had served just about everywhere: Hawaii, South Korea (1974-75), Vietnam (1967-68), and Germany.
  2. Unfortunately, I think his apron and any other Masonic items may be lost to history. It seems these two coins were all that was left. I may try and find out if is old lodge is still around and see if they may have any information.
  3. My uncle John's mini-medal bar representing his 20 years of service.
  4. Thanks for the information. I figured they were some kind of award for progressing through the "ranks", but it seems there's more to it than that
  5. Good evening, one and all. It's been a long time since I've been here, and just noticed there was a section dedicated to the Freemasons. As it happens, my great-grandfather had been a Mason for many years, and I happen to have a couple of coins (or medals - not sure about the terminology) that belonged to him. I hope you guys enjoy seeing them. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about them, or what they represent. If anyone could shed some light on them for me, my family and I would be eternally grateful
  6. Thank you, Nick! I wasn't 100% positive about which medal was for what. Thanks for clearing that up for me
  7. Finally, the ship's badge. Please feel free to share your items or thoughts.
  8. An enamel cross, of a similar design as on the above medals.
  9. I believe this medal was awarded to the divers who participated who dove on the Kursk.
  10. I am told this medal was awarded to those who participated in the search and recovery efforts.
  11. Monday, August 12th, will mark the loss of the Russian submarine K-141 - the "Kursk" - with all hands. This would be one of the worst submarine disasters in history. In memory of the loss of the Kursk, I thought I would post some pictures I have of commemorative badges and awards relating to the Kursk, and the recovery efforts. Please feel free to post any mementos, pictures, awards, etc. you may have relating to this proud submarine. To start off, here is a picture of a small grouping of awards and badges I have.
  12. This thread is making me regret selling my 40th Anniversary medal lol
  13. I hope you don't mind me posting this, but this is a medal I actually just sold off. 40th Anniversary Medal of the 18th Submarine Division. Pic 1:
  14. Outstanding! Thank you. He likely would have been with the 7th Corps Artillery since the village of Billed was within that region. Mystery solved! Thank you for your help! I'll check with the USMF about the second uniform.
