I'm a big fan of Dutch awars. A Lot of Dutch awards where given to German persons because of the close relationships between the various states and monarchs. Does anyone have photo's of medalbars with Dutch awards?

I will show a few I found online:

EK II. Klasse, 1914

K?niglicher Hausorden von Hohenzollern, Ridder met zwaarden

Roter Adler Orden 4. Klasse

Offiziersdienstauszeichnungskreuz f?r 25 Jahre

Centenarmedaille

Sachsen-Meiningen,Ehrenzeichen f?r Verdienste im Kriege 1915 ? 1918

Schaumburg-Lippe, Hausorden, Kreuz 4. Klasse

Niederlande, Orden von Oranien-Nassau, Ritterkreuz mit Schwertern

?sterreich, Milit?rverdienstkreuz 3. Klasse

I will PM you with identities of the "anonymous" bars because understand that I will not present free value adding research to totally unknown third parties who may have these bars now or be selling them without this information. :beer:

What the first group brings up is we can now attribute ZINK SMKs to an award date as early as 9 July 1917. Previously the only other ex-George Seymour groups I could recall had zinky SMKs from June 1918. :cheers:

Sorry i have nothing to add but i've enjoyed viewing the medal bars. 

Would it be more likely to see Prussian Officers with Dutch awards due to proximate, or did any of the other state militarize have a special relationship with the Dutch King?

Cheers,

Chuck

That would be Mecklenburg -Schwerin.  Duke Henry married Queen Wilhelmina which is why you see lots of Dutch orders and medals worn by Mecklenburg citizens and to a lesser extent Waldeck-Pyrmont.

    • 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.
