Bravo!! It is so difficult to take such close photos without any reflection of the flash... :(

Yes it is difficult to avoid the reflections, but this time I took advantage of the stable base offered by the glass top and did not use the flash. Only the light from the display cases, which sometimes had shed strange shadows or had confused the camera.

If you have more to post, please do!!!!

This Museum is very nice, with so many lovely pieces!!!

Will do in a sec.

Order of the Crown of Prussia

Unfortunately the badge was too close to the light in the display box (the white 'thing' at the bottom of the image).

    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this.

Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
