An Order of the Red Banner of Labor and Bravery Medal (1965) to two different people. Also some undocumented single awards. See http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=2418...mp;#entry229323 for those.

Research is pending on just about all of these. However, with the delays that seem to be plaguing research these days, I don't expect to see results for months.

And finally, my collection of fifes and piccolos (well, piccolo at the moment). As a Revolutionary and Civil War reenactor and fifer, I think it was only natural I started collecting these. The ones I have were made by Crosby (Civil War period), and George Cloos, Crosby's apprentice who later started his own business in about the 1880's. The piccolo is marked "Nach H. F. Mayer," a flute maker of German origin. I am currently looking into purchasing German fifes made during WWI. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get one yet (close but no cigar), but I'll find one soon.

Once again, help appareciated with some of the German stuff. Thanks and enjoy!

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
