Heiko,

When I look at your medal bars, it hurts me too much to see how a great collection could vanish so quickly.

I really wish with all my heart that you will get your bars back and that the thief/ves will be taken!

I don't think (I don't even want to consider that) that the thieves will be so stupid to take apart the bars. Nowadays such bars, especially the named ones, are a lot more valuable than the single orders & medals added together.

Ciao,

Claudio

I am sorry Claudio, but I think these impressive bars are not for sale on the normal channels. There would be a too great risk for the thiefes.

Either they rip them apart or someone gave the order for the robbery and is now sitting in his celler with all the fine bars :(:mad:

All the best for you Heiko !!!

greetings

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
