  1. Your welcome. Yes, this is definately an A-H Navy frock coat, the manufacturers mark of the buttons helps us. Nice find. Gordon, those buttons are exacly regency, Horthy-period buttons - as Bayern wrote - which was used only after 1921. The buttons are correct for this tunic with the Austrian imperial crown. You can find a complete frock here:
  2. Thank you Gents for your opinion and help. A fellow forum member from another forum has helped me. He's opinion is a Pattern 1881 Royal Berkshire Regiment Bandmaster (Sergeant Major) tunic. The missing badge is the bandmaster's badge with he laurel wreath, lyra and the crown.
  3. It is an interesting frock coat. Royal Navy frock coats had 5 or 4 double rows of buttons. 5 row was used prior to 1933 and it has changed to 4 row in 1933. The medal loops are also different from the ones used on Royal Navy uniforms. This method is similar which has used for example by the Austro-Hungarian Navy. Balazs
  4. Hello Bayern, Thank you for your help. Yes, the laces are made of gold thread. It wasn't in my mind that the absent badge could a WO1 badge be, but you are right, it is the most possible solution. The impact of the collar badges are also different from the Royal Berlshire Regiment.
  5. Thank you Mike. Yes it is a very nice tunic, luckily in a very good condition.
  6. I had a great luck, a fellow forum member had all the relevant informations (medals and dates) about the original owner. This civilian and military medal combination is a unique one. I have also tried to search for the name. I have found him also, but I had other names too. I tried to collect from the London Gazette all those Royal Engineers officers who was awarded the Officer grade of Legion of Merit. I had 44 names. I planned the next step to check all those who were knighted. I have received the owners name between the 1st and 2nd step.
  7. A fellow forum memebr from another forum helped me, I have a possible owner's name now: Sir Robert Leslie Lawrence.
  8. This tunic is my latest item in my collection. It looks like an infantry tunic from 1889 without shoulder boards, and a badge also missing from the lower part of the right sleeve. There is a stamping on the inside which reads 'RBR 1889'. What do you think RBR stands for? Is it Royal Berkshire Regiment or Border Regiment or something else? The place of the badge looks like a bandsman badge. What do you think? Thanks, Balazs
  9. I have an interesting ribbon bar which looks like a unique one. It is on a Royal Engineers colonel No1 dress uniform. Unfortunately there is no info about the original owner. I tried to serch for the name, but I had no success yet. It looks like the officer had an army career during WW2 (later reserve officer) and then probably a civilian one. As he was awarded the Knight's Bachelor badge and a civilian CBE and Order of St. John. The Legion of Merit can also be helpful. Have you got any idea where to start? Thanks, Balazs
  10. Thank you, Gents for your help. I have tried a lot of variations, but I didn't think for Scouller. Thanks for your great help and also for the Gazette entry. I have found a lot of infos on the website about his promotions.
  11. Hello Gents, I have an interesting Group Captain RAF tunic with an AFC ribbon on it. There is a label on the inside, but I am in trouble with the name on it. I can't make it out. Can you please help me what is the name of the officer? Thanks, Balazs
  12. I have found that the lower mark is also an Arthus-Bertrand mark. It is a wheel gear and a star above. The AB & Cie and the lower mark together was used from 1911.
  13. Owain, Thank you for your kind help. I am trying to check the French silver marks, maybe I can find some informations. Kind regards, Balazs
  14. I have an Ethiopian Order of Holy Trinity grand cross breast star in my collection. It has a hallmark which is unknown for me. It looks like the the top row has two letters 'A' and 'B'. What do you think it could be Arthus Bertrand as the manufacturer? What does the other marks mean? Thanks, Balazs
  15. This is my newest item in my collection, an Italian Order of Crown Commander. It has a manufacturers mark ('t2') which is unknown to me? Can you please help me which firm could it be? Thanks, Balazs
