Long time now since i made an update here.

I haven't stopped my collecting though...

Here's the bronze medal of merit with the crowns and crossed swords on green military ribbon.

This award was instituted in Hungary 1930 for those who were eligible for awards in the final years of WW1 but never was awarded because of the end of the war.

The miniature on trifold was the highest award received.

A few month ago I bought these three Hungarian photo-albums from another militaria collector.

The albums contains more than 1400 original Hungarian WW2 military photos!!

The details and quality are just breathtaking and I just started to make scans of the photos.

I will share some of the highlights here later, but for now, I will start with a really interesting scene from a Soviet military attaché´s visit at the 7th Infantry regiment in the town of Kecskemét.

Inspection of the radio unit.

The officer to the left in this photo of colonel Frigyes Vasváry.

In a few weeks from this, he becomes the comader for the the 7th Infantry regiment and replacing colonel Jozsef Grassy.

A new piece in the collection.

The Hungarian Order of The Holy Crown of Saint Stephen, Officers Cross.

The cross on top of the crown is sadly missing. Maybe someone tried to straighten it out and it broke off?

    • 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.
