I have been searching for a china medal (denkmuntze) with Gefechtsspance (clasp) of HOPHU.

Today Detlev listed one with a HUOLU clasp. Naturally I missed it :blush: since I am NEVER quick enough :angry: .

BUT tell me ... is HUOLU the same as HOPHU???

Hello Rod,

these are two different bars.

HOPHU was a mountain village with a nearby stronghold occupied by Boxers. The campaign dates are 28.12.1900 - 14.01.1901.

HUOLU was named after fighting around the Huolu-Pass on 23. & 24.04.1901.

It was the last action in China for those a campaign bar was granted.

Huolo was the main "set piece" battle for the German Expeditionary Force, and is the most common of the bars awarded to army personnel... relatively speaking, of course. Despite the numbers involved, casualties were minimal.

Best I can do are :love: tinies:
