  1. Can anyone help me with the identification of this Belgian uniform, presumibly from a NCO? The odd thing is that he's wearing an unoffical Knight Order of Leopold II with swords. Thanks in advance, Gm1
  2. A Knight of the Order obveres post 1950 with both languages
  3. Here also is a Knight's level of the order, looks like most of the gilt has worn off
  4. On the back of the Belgian medals like the Order of Leopold is the signature/emblam of the reigning monarch, but I'm unable to figure out which monarch used which signature and hence I can't figure out which era the medal is in. (I presume there must be 5-6 eras because that is how many Belgian Monarchs there are, so there must be 5-6 different types of signature...is that right?). Is there a side by side picture chart of the various Belgian monarchs and what that looks like on these medals? Thanks!
  5. Hello. Is the badge below Belgian? Please let me know. Thank you. Linas
  6. Hello. I just purchased this interesting commander’s cross. It states ‘Union et Maintien’ on the cross center. As I researched this, I found a certificate for this exact cross, but in a Chevalier class. There the collector referenced it as Belgian. I have a number of questions: 1. Is this Belgian or French? 2. If it is Belgian, why no crown? 3. Who issued and awarded this medal (a government ministry or some association)? 4. I know this is for Social and Philanthropic services rendered. Do you know though the criteria? Especially, why were there several grades? 5. What time period is this from? 6. Is this a common medal or is it somewhat rare? 7. What would you estimate the value? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks you. Linas
  7. After the war, many municipalities and cities awarded some medals to honor their combatants or victims of the war. These medals are not official and information about them is scarce. In this topic I show my own collection of them and share the information I have found. Feel free to contribute your own pieces and/or information. Ghent Awarded by the city of Ghent during the "Gentse Feesten" (Eng: The Ghent Festival) of 1920, in presence of members of the royal family, to all WW1 combatants and deported of the city of Ghent. The medal was also awarded to the widows or the rightful claiments of a fallen soldier. On of the shown pieces came in the box of the manufacturer "Jules Jooris". Medal of the Three Cities (Ypres, Diksmuide and Nieuwpoort) Created in 1955 and awarded by one of the three cities to combatants (usualy French or Belgian) who fought in their region. A bar with the name of the city is added on the ribbon of the medal. It is possible that one combatant has two or all three bars on the ribbon. Medal of Liège Awarded in 1920 during a ceremony, with crown prince Leopold (later King Leopold III) en General Leman (Commander of the Fortifications of Liège in 1914), to the defenders of the fortifications around the city and to inhabitants of the city who were political prisoners and tried by a German Court.
  8. I guess we must have lost some threads during the upgrade as I couldn't find one of my old posts to continue there? Is it me, or does the search function leave a lot to be desired here? I can't seem to search a topic and just get a list of threads instead of all the possible posts that may have that topic in it?? Anyway... I recently picked up two more Fire Cross to go with my Type 1. When comparing these to PICS online and reading on Hendrik's site, I see there are die variations to the Types 1 & 2, so I got wondering if we had examples of the different strikes and are any maker's identified yet? Here's my three: Tim Obverse:
  9. This cross wasn't a decoration, but just a sign of the religion of the chaplain.
  10. Had some pic up's to do yesterday going from Namur in Belgium to Lille in the north of France. In stead of going from one point to the other at all speed, we decided to go slow and choose the rural small roads. It was a great experience. One of the places we came by was Conde sur Escaut a very nice old historical town that I would recomend to visit. Lille is quiet nice as well, but I choose the suburbs of the town ( for parking facilities!)to meet the sellers, so no pic's from that place....... But here is the beast! The 4 th lancers were involved at; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Haelen_(1914) And here is the whole lot that I brought back from our trip;
  11. After the Indian en Zulu chief medal's,I tought it would look good to show the Belgian medal's to the local chiefs and sub chiefs. Pic's arent mine they come from e$ay. These medals didn't come with a ribbon, but with a "water closet drain" chain.....to be wear around the neck. I'll try to complete the thread with more pic's as soon as I found them. cheers |<ris
  12. One of 100 Best's Soldiers receive St. George "For Bravery" Medal 4th class in 1915
  13. On the next website D?coration Militaire (in Dutch) you can find a lot of different pieces with there periode and kings monograms
  14. My collection Belgian Congo grows very slowly, those objects are very hard to come by. Here is my latest (just in!!) Portrait was made by ,Emiel Jacques, (°Moorslede, 17 juli 1874/+Michigan, 1937)a Belgian artist who moved to the US and died as a American citizen. I still need to find out who the officer was...
  15. Hello guys, this is my first post on this board, so be nice! I'm really interested in the Belgian-Luxembourg Contingent (BUNC) in Korea so below I've put pictures of the medals I've got so far. I apologise for the awful quality of the photography, but they're the best I've got at the moment. First up, the Medal for Foreign Operations. Note the Corée-Korea bar. Second, the Medal of the War Volunteer (post-1952 version) with Corée-Korea bar. The PUGNATOR bar is missing. Next, the Belgian-Type UN Medal: I'd apreciate any information on this type - why was the standard medal not used? Then, the Militaire Decoratie/Decoration Militaire Article 4 medal: I believe that this is this medal is an unofficial version and that the Corée-Korea bar was not authorised. The EENDRACHT MAAKT MACHT (along the top) L'UNION FAIT LA FORCE (along the bottom) legend and lions of both sides, means that it was issued from 1952 (?) though I'd be grateful if someone could confirm this. Also, I'm afraid that I don't know whether this is the 'good service' or the 'gallantry' type - the chevron is correct for the former, the ribbon for the latter, which type is it - or is it both? Thanks! BP
  16. Still trying to identify the chap, so any help is welcome. It seems to me the buttons look like Garde Civique... The medal he wears is a long service medal for administrative services. The bust is signed by Frantz Vermeylen and dated 1887.
  17. Just won my first Belgian Congo medal bar. I have been after one ever since I started collecting again. I am using the sales room pic.
  18. Hi Gents, I'm after your opinions of this medal .... obverse reverse It has a small/narrow ball or very thick wire suspension, the 'Paul Dubois' is present but rather indistinct compared to otherOfficial type 1s I have, and the colour has a rather coppery, slightly shiney tone. The planchet edge is clean and smooth; diameter 36mm, 2mm thick. So, is it an Official Type 1 with an odd suspension, a well-made copy, or something else? Bill
  19. Not much else to do, then to sit still and heal, after a tendon tear in my right arm.... So I tought why not start a thread with Belgian medals makers and retailers. With the pile of medal boxes I have that might take some posts. Let's start with the greatest name; Fonson. Next is Fish, a old one and the modern one; Van Look from Antwerp, also two different one's, two different adresses too; Walravens; Wolfers;
  20. Good evening again gents! I received three Belgium medals today, and would just like to check on the correct name of them please! The first was labelled Belgium Decoration for labour gold crown:
  21. I just love these! It was found by a fellow collector ,at 11 am, on a small fleemarket on a rainy day near Paris, a few weeks ago. Went to fetch it yesterday.
  22. Since we have already 3 other Belgian orders on the forum I guested that a forth couldn't harm. Who will place the fift? Oli4
