  6. I have found out that a ( 新高,1904, Captain Kobayashi Kenkura 小林研蔵) commanded the protected cruiser IJN Niitaka as part of the Second Fleet during the Siege of Tsingtao in 1914. By the looks of the kanji this would be the same person, correct? What's the first part say? My literal translator says "New High"! Cheers Larry
  7. Thank you Nick I can see where a case of mistaken identity could occur. I'm guessing there is nothing special about Lieutenant Commander Kenkura Kobayashi? Again Many thanks for your help. It's truly appreciated. Cheers Larry
  8. Hi Was not sure of which side you needed, so I did both. Many thanks for your help, It's appreciated. Cheers Larry
  9. K will do a better picture. Many thanks for your help Cheers Larry
  10. Thank you. What does his name translate into? Cheers Larry
  11. Hello I am hoping some one can tell me more about this award document I have? The only thing I know is it was awarded to a Vice Admiral Many thanks Cheers Larry
  12. Hello Owain To the best of my knowledge they did not chage in design. Cheers Larry
  13. They are rank dependent from what I know. And IIRC you can wear all medals issued, regardless if one supercedes another or not. If you know what year he started his service and tack on 25 and 35 years, you could get a rough idea of what year they would have been issued....... Cheers Larry
  14. Medals come before in cross in terms of being awarded. The Gold Leo II medal is Awarded after 20 years of meritorious service to a non-commissioned officer (9 years for non-commissioned officers member of the flying personnel), and after 25 years of service for a private or corporal. The long service medal was issued for 25 years of service with Gold going to higher ranks, and the cross for 35 years service. Unless I am greatly mistaken this is fellow member Tachel's page on the "Civil decoration for Long Service in the Administration of Leopold l: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civic_Decoration I was assuming - horrible word - that both devices were silver, and that one was a cross! Old eyes and a small fuzzy piccies makes it hard. Cheers Larry
  15. I would say the silver medal and silver cross form what I can see...... Cheers Larry
  16. From what I can find out it would be the Zoll green. It appears the only difference between a "land" and a "wasser" were the anchor buttons and they have crossed anchors on the shoulder boards. Cheers Larry
  17. Another nice one. The fact that it has rivets makes it pre 15 August 1945, they went rivetless sometime after the war. Cheers Larry
  18. Nice Showa era medal. Cheers Larry
  19. Picture was found on line and I can't seem to find it. All the cap badges were different from what I can find out. Cheers Larry
  20. I have found this which is the rank insignia of the French Kurdish Squadron of Levant.......... Cheers Larry
  21. I would almost lean towards Turkey. The cap emblem appears to be the Turkish National emblem...... For what its worth. Cheers Larry
  22. They were available in Fredericton NB.............which the last time I looked was outside the "continental USA" http://www.germanmilitaria.com/Heer/16AntiTank.html Cheers Larry
  23. Here's my take on them.... 1st Bar in order shown Sitara-i-Harb 1965 - Instituted 1965 Sitara-i-Harb 1971 - Instituted 1971 Tamja-i-Jang 1965 - Instituted 1965 Tamja-i-Jang 1971 - Instituted 1971 Quaid-e-Azam 100th year - Instituted 1976 Hirji Tamja - Instituted 1979 The largest flag for me is a 14 year career and no "10 year service medal". I would also kind of except to see a Tamgha-i-Difaa with the 1965 bar 2nd bar Tamja-i-Baqa - Instituted 1998 Tamja-i-Jang 1971 - Instituted 1971 - but no Sitara-i-Harb 1971 10 year Service medal 20 year Service medal Quadra-i-Pakistan - Instituted 1990 Independence Golden Jubilee - Instituted 1998 The only flag I see is the Tamja-i-Baqa should be the last/second last medal on the bar. Bear in mind these are my opinions and finding accurate info on Pakistani medals is sparse at best. Cheers Larry
