If you ever want to part with that knight of the royal order of the lion.... You know where I'm...

I have bought recently a nice silver medal of the order... however no ribbon.. so If you have somewhere a spare ribbon... Please feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

p.s didn't that picture come off ebay??

Maybee if you read my post carefully I've written: "anyway this was on my computer, so I didn't have to scan it. yes I know I'm a lazy dude."

So it means that I won the auction, copied the pictures and posted them, so I didn't have to scan the decoration!

Becouse all this bla, bla and no boem, boem (the Flemish will understand this joke ;-)) I'll post a picture of a part of my collection. When I saw that it wasn't there :speechless1: I thurned in several collours :cheeky: but then I remembered that it was in a box of not labeled decorations!

:catjava:

moraal van het verhaal: niet zagen en foto's posten of ik word boos :violent:

natuurlijk kan je me steeds gerelateerde vragen stellen en moet je me niet als een arogante kl**tzak aanzien en mocht je ooit eens naar Vaanderen komen dan ben ik niet te beroerd om je op een pintje te trakteren :beer:

excuse me for my use of the Flemish language on this international forum :blush:

what shall I say? depends when you are lucky or not, but normaly you'll have to pay between 150 and 200 euro, I guess. It also depends in what condition they are or what period.

Those ribbons are relatively easy to find in Belgium.

can you post a picture of the medal only?

Thank you for your answer,

I will have to scan it, however not a change this week... As I have tentams in "Colloid Sciences" and "Analytical Methods" awaiting for me :S

Maybe could you help me with the ribbon? Most preferably a nice cotton one. As I hate the "plastic sh*t"

Kind regards,

Jacky

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
