It's soon the International Women's Day !

;)

For this occasion, I want to open a new file, showing imperial's women's awards.

I begin with a Saxony bronze Carolina medal (1915-1918 model), on bow ribbon :

A better view of the Cross.

Pinpon, very nice thread.

All who have contributed - you guys have some wonderful and rare medals.

I do not have anything to add to this thread, and if the photo posted is only an EK then I ask one of the administrators to remove this post please. Tom, seeing your magnificent Prussian Verdienstkreuz fur Frauen reminded me of this photo of my Grandmother (Dad's side) Her name was Joanna Hassdenteufel(!) It is widely accepted in the family that this picture was taken in early WW1. At her neck she wears what appears to be an EK or something like it. The centre of which looks to have something in it as well. No bow mount, no neck ribbon...any thoughts?

pinpon590,

Thank you for starting this thread. In view of a discussion on another thread, I was thinking along this line -

Great minds think alike. :beer:

My wife has a little collection of ladies awards of which she has graciously agreed to share a couple of pieces which are available for photos.

From Saxe-Weimar, a very unusual looking decoration. Ehrenzeichen f?r r?hmliche Tatigkeit, 1870-71.

I accidentally stumbled across the on-line issue of a German medals magazine on Tuesday and stupidly did not earmark the site. however, on it was a complete roll (49 pages) for the Franco-Prussian wars' EK for Junngfrau etc.. from 2006.

Does anyone know where this is/was? Further google searches have resulted in nothing. :banger:

I think you are referring to http://www.ordensjournal.ordensmuseum.de/, which I believe is a site belonging to a German member of GMIC.

I am! Many thanks. I owe you a beer or two.

Now to subscribe. Back issues available? :cheers:

My paltry contribution. Note the good sister pinned one of her collar badges on the medal:

    • 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.
