Question about the use of swords for Alexander Nevsky Order

Hi All,

I should need a clarification about the use of the 'Swords' for the Order of Alexander Nevsky:

What I would like to know is if this Order was bestowed with the 'swords' for 'Military Exploits' only or if it was sufficient that the recipients was a Military person ?

I'm asking this because I'm re-searching the full medal entitlement of a British Field Marshal (John Denton Pinkstone FRENCH [1852-1925], 1st Earl of Ypres) and I know that He received the Order in question but I don't know if with or without SWORDS.

Can someone help me please ?

Many Thanks in advance

All the Best

Lilo

P.S. as an aside, I would also appreciate a comment about the frequency of the issue of the 'Alexander Nevsky Order' with SWORDS in particular to British (foreign) recipents in respect to the issue of that WITHOUT 'Swords'.

Hi Lilo,

I attach the only info I have found on the subject in Durov's "The orders of Russia"

That order with swords is very seldom encountered and one sold some years ago was even with black enamel !!
