  1. I am seeking info regarding the Portuguese Campaign Commemorative Medals and their bars for the military operations in southern Angola in the period 1914 - 15. These operations were mainly against German operstions into Angola.
  2. Hello, I'm quite new to this hobby, collecting for 1 year mostly Romanian Orders and Medals. Today I have stumbled upon what I think is a portuguese order of villa vicosa, but the maker is quite unusual, I really don't find a similar one. The makers name is Belgian jeweler G.Wolfers. The patina is there, but can you help me with more information? Thank you in advance, Sorin
  3. Hello Members of the Portugal Forum Recently purchased this bar and it is on its way to me from a close forum friend of mine The Order of St. Avis really attracted me to it, I know Portugal had a settlement in Togo and in neighboring Ghana but I would like to know more if possible about the Order of St. Avis. It looks like 1910 or later, but I would like to ask the experts for help (I have re-posted in it's former topic in Imperial German section but since I would like to know about this Order of St. Avis, I thought of posting here Thank you for any help on this matter :D
  4. On January 31, 1891, took place in OPorto, Portugal, a Republican revolt against the Monarchy. This revolt failed, but laid the foundations for a strong and organized republican movement that will overthrow the monarchy on 5 October 1910 with large civilian and military support. 30 years after the revolt of Porto, in 1921, the Government of the Portuguese Republic will establish this medal for heroism to those precursors of the Republic. This is one of the rarest Portuguese military decorations, having been awarded only 177 times. Single class medal, struck in Bronze, ribbon with the Republican national colors. https://picasaweb.google.com/108137890886288929754/CruzDeGuerra?authkey=Gv1sRgCLXTzrCJnIbYjgE#5839630954537614738
  5. The Military Valor Medal its a Portuguese medal created in 1863 by the King D.Luiz I, alongside the other two first military medals, the Good Services medal (Red and White ribbon) and Exemplar Beaver medal (Green and White ribbon). All of them in three classes, cooper, silver and gold. From 1946 it’s the second highest Portuguese military decoration, just after the mythic Order of the Tower and Sword, dethroning the Portuguese War Cross that was from 1916 until 1946 the second Portuguese military award. Despite this exchange the Portuguese War Cross, is still being the most well-known and prestigious award among the Portuguese people. 2013 marks the Portuguese Military Medal 150 anniversary, and as normal, in the last 150 years do to the political and cultural exchanges, this medals suffer regular esthetic alterations. This model here present it’s the 1946/1949, transitional decree model, the rarest of them hall, and in my opinion, one of the most beautiful designs achieved. In gilded-silver, indication of the first class, although the gilding is almost disappeared, with a palm indication that was awarded in campaign against the enemy, most probably in the Overseas war. The Front shows a National Shield of Arms with the words “Valor Militar”, military valor. The Back shows a Christian Knight at Arms dueling a Muslim Knight, surrounded by the legend “Sine Sanguine Nula Victoria”, that means, Without blood there will be no Victory.
  6. Greetings to all; "The Peninsular War was a military conflict between France and the allied powers of Spain, the United Kingdom, and Portugal for control of the Iberian Peninsula during the Napoleonic Wars. The war began when French and Spanish armies crossed Spain and invaded Portugal in 1807. Then, in 1808, France turned on its ally, Spain. The war lasted until the Sixth Coalition defeated Napoleon in 1814." To us, the Portuguese, the war is called “Invasões Francesas”, “The French Invasions”. In 1806 the Portuguese army was reorganized, forestalling a French invasion, caused by the Anglo-Portuguese alliance that long last from the XIV Century. With this Royal Decree sign by the Prince Regent, future D. João VI “John the VI”, logistics, structure but manly Uniforms and Weapons suffered a huge modernization. This saber from my collection, and described in Nobre book “As Armas e os Barões” 2004, is a Portuguese 1806 pattern, similar to an 1796 British Light Cavalry, but much more light to the brass guard-hilt and scabbard, but yet, equally strong due to the ancient Portuguese expertise in brass, iron and steel smiting. This Sabre is a Young Cavalry Officer, from the Royal Volunteers Guard, and fought in the Portuguese Battles against Junot, Sult and Massena, possibly doing has well the Spanish and French campaign until the French capitulation in 1914. The Scabbard has to iron rings, and as well the Guard is in Gilded Brass. Unfortunately today most of the Gilding has vanish. The blade in excellent steel has no engravings or etching. The style of this Sabre and the well battle damaged scabbard indicates that that young officer, probably a Lieutenant, served has a scout currier (secret mailing and delivery of battle orders and mail) for the Portuguese General Staff in Battle.
  7. The Order of Industry was originally created (as Agricultural and Industrial Merit) in 1893. These were revived and reformed in 1926, again in 1991.This is of 2nd type and an older vintage. Manufactured by : "M. Pinhao, Condecoracoes, Rl Pedras Negras, 3 r/c.- Lisboa". I really like this design with the rays and stars also used in the Portuguese order of Villa Vicosa. The nameplate of M. Pinhoa is on the back of the medals. I could not find any more information on this maker.
