  1. dedehansen, you are correct. He indeed wears both Dutch medals. In the Dutch archives in The Hague there must be a file on him. He served at least for six years in the Dutch Indies to receive the Bronze Long service medal. Normally it was awarded after 12 years, but in the tropics the years counted double. He is wearing the medals in the wrong order by the way. Regards Herman
  2. Hi Wessel, Your MC is a copy of the George V WW1 type. If you do a Google search you'll find the George VI, WW2 type and the Elizabeth II type aswell. I enclose a picture of an original WW1 MC. Regards Herman
  3. Numbered purple hearts are near to impossible to match with a name.They were issued by numerous lower level military hospitals or units. Most of them didn't hold any records. The only thing you can get from a number(range) is the manufacturer as stated by muckaroon1960.
  4. Here is a full set to a Dutch Marine NCO who got a Member (Lid) grade award in the Order of Oranje Nassau AND a Bronze Cross (Bronzen Kruis) bravery award. This is a ultra rare combination in a modern group. Enjoy the picture. Herman
  5. A modern group with the Oranje Nassau, knight, military division.
  6. The Dutch Cross for justice and freedom. The figure 2 and 3 on the bars are the 1 year tours a soldier did in Korea.
  7. Nice story IrishGunner. This is a clean example why we preserve history. Sometimes we collectors as keepsakers of history do the right thing, because it's just that, the right thing. Respectfully, Herman
  8. It is a put together. No Special forces officer with the name Delaney received a silver star, let alone 9... 😂😂 Regards Herman
  9. Let's revive this old topic. @SGM97B, well done. Indeed you are one of the few US miltary to participate and succeed. I enclose a picture of one of my favorite medal sets. This set is from a Dutch Colonel who was the first to reach 25 succesfull participations. At this moment only ten people succeeded to reach this number and qualified for the red enamelled cross. Regards Herman
