  2. Hi everbody, I have a medal order but i don't know it's a fake or not. I think it's a Medjidie medal so an old order (1830-1861), but the stones here seem to be rhinestone. Do somebody have any informations about what it could be?
  3. Hello, I get a group of an austrian officer, he got five ottoman empire decoration, two are missing (gallipoli star and order of the ottoman empire third class with swords?) attached pictures of the three other orders: regards daniel
  4. Dear Ottoman Militaria Collector Friends, I would like to share my information about the Ottoman Army belt buckles. OTTOMAN BELT BUCKLES DURING WW1 During the WW1 the Ottoman Army used M1909 belt buckle which was originated from German M1895, produced of brass (Type A) (pressed to obtain the obverse figure) or brass with an attached nickel-silver front plate (Type B). The buckle is 45 mm. (app. 1 ¾ inches). On the buckle there is a star and crescent with the Ottoman script "Asakir-i Sahane" (Asakry Shahanah) (Sultans Army-Ottoman Army) on it. Now, if you have seen or have several Ottoman Army belt buckles you may have noticed that there are two types of script. The text on the right side of the crescent may differ. Although, the meaning is same "Asakir-i Sahane", the style is different. Please check the pictures below. As you see the bottom buckle has a big stretched "S" type figure (type S) while the one on the top has a "SL" style figure (SL type). Sincerely I don't know which one is earlier made. The pictures of "S type", Type A and B are from my collection. Best wishes Demir Erman Type "SL" and Type "S"
  5. When visiting a museum some years ago, think it was in Paris, I saw a painting of a man wearing a group of decorations with a Turkish award unknown to me. I did made some effort trying to figure out what is was with all the online ressources I could find - but failed. For some strange reason I only took this photo and not the full picture, Now I have bought this little group, and what I believe must be an Turkish award resembles the one on the painting although it seems to be inverted. Again I have failed to find out what it is. The Order of Saint Louis is not a miniature, but seems to be a "reduction" beeing 25 mm wide and is worn from a combined ribbon where the Turkish ribbon appears as well. The Turkish award is 20 *33 mm. Now I have the following questions: 1. What is it I have here? 2. Given the size, is it a full size award, a "reduction" or a miniature? 3. Is this the same decoration as on the painting, a different class or ...? The painter could have inverted it by mistake? If not, what is the person on the painting wearing? Regards, Lars Now some closeup photos:
  6. When a friend of ours from GMIC asked information about a Turkish Military badge, I noticed that there is a need to satart a subject by this name.

  12. Hello, Please add the films you know about Gallipoli and WWI Turkey. Please indicate it, if it is documentary. Let me start with: TELL ENGLAND Mustafa Kemal Atatürk liked the film when he saw it on 22.1.1932. Tell England – 1931 | 80mins | War | B&W Plot Synopsis http://www.britmovie...ll-England_1931 Edgar Doe and Rupert Ray, boyhood friends, enlist in the British army at the outbreak of war in 1914. Both receive commissions and are sent eventually as part of the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force to Gallipoli The horrors of war begin slowly to damp their romantic enthusiasm, and Doe, the more idealistic and sensitive of the two is nerve racked by months of inactivity and then by the cruel slaughter of his men by a Turkish trench mortar. He quarrels with Ray (a young, inarticulate Englishman) who has been promoted to captain, and breaks down; he regains self-confidence on learning that he has been chosen to lead a raid on the Turkish trenches. Doe goes over the top, is seriously wounded, but manages single-handed to put the trench mortar post out of action. Soon after his death, the British withdraw from Gallipoli. The expedition has been a military blunder and only the scores of English graves left behind commemorate a tragic campaign. Excerpt© ‘Puffin Asquith’ by R.J. Minney.

  19. Hi there, from a man who died in 1903 there is only one of twelve awards left. For five of six Prussian and Wuerttemberg meanwhile we found out that the regulations said that the award has to be returned. The man also got the 3rd and 2nd class of the Order of Medjidje . Does anybody know if there was a obligation of return for this order? Thanks. Michael
