Today I found an incomplete bar on marktplaats, ie only the ribbons,

Now I'm wondering what it could mean!!

blue with yellow stripes: Knight of the dutch lion.

Orange: due to it's postion I would think its the dutch house order of orange.

Orange with 3 blue stripes; ascension medal of her majesty Beatrix

Green with 1 white stripe; Order of the golden palm of suriname.

Orange with rosette: officer of the house order of orange ??? But then, why on this position?

Blue with 1 grey stripe; militairy penthatlon cross.

The orange ribbons are quite strange!! if one assumes that the first one is the house order, then what is the 5th one?

Assuming that the first one is a long service award would be very very strange, because this would imply that the receipment was a non-commissioned officer or soldier for at least 12 years. Which is absolutely nonsens in connection with the knight of the dutch lion and the house order...

Who can solve this for me, or at least shed some light on this case???

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
