The red and white ribboned medal in #26 is the "Sanay" Medal "for arts and sciences."

It was often given, God alone knows why, instead of a Liakat for noncombatant merit before and even during the war. My late guru had a group to a CHAFFEUR who got this in the war, apparently for lack of anything more appropriate that anyone could think of!

Slowwwwwwww forward to 2009:

Here's a LONG delayed follow up. I was going through Baden's horrible Z?hringen Lion WW1 rolls and lo and behold FINALLY found what Lieutenant Ibrahim M?nir is wearing in last place. The stripes are wrong wrong wrong which is what threw me off hunting for a Saxon Albert Order:

but here he was-- Z?hringen Lion Knight 2nd with Swords (BZ3bX) on 18 January 1916:

There is NO way that what he was wearing was the green and orange Baden ribbon, but there we go. Looks to me like he's wearing another EK2 ribbon only with Xs on it.

Hi Heiko,

I quote an article from Werner Sauer Info 59, Oct. 1988:

Grün-Rot des türkischen Herrscher-Hauses, die Orange-Farbe des vom Sultan getragenem

höchsten preusischen Ordens (Roter Adler Orden)

red-green from the ruling Osman house and the orange from the Sultan highest

prussian order Red Eagle Order.

Regards
Andreas
