I too like the Saxon style ribbon; they seem to be the hardest to find.

I especially like your mother's mini set … very envious.



Thank you very much Gar. Yes it seems they are realy hard to find. Its the first saxon style i found in over 17years. 

Yes the mothers bar is realy special. :beer:

Reviving this interesting thread with a recent find that hasn't been posted yet. Pictures are really bad, in hand the obverse of this fine CEJ MM cross for widows/parents looks perfect in its enamel black color.

Hope you like it

Cheers Thomas

Here is the only Hindenburg cross in my collection.

Awarded to Karl Wüllner who after WW1 served in the Ostseedivision in the Finnish liberty war.
I also have his EK2 and medals from Finland with documents and his wehrpass.

Reviving this thread as I have always been interested but have not collected these ones. BUT, I have just been offered a ribbon-less crossed swords 39 RV Pforzheim - what is the significance of these numbers?

How rare are the Hindenburg crosses awarded to finns?

Here is a pic of one awarded to Ivar Kauranen, the stamp says "Deutscher gesandt… in Helsingfors". 

Can anyone read the signature? :)

    • 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.
