Very interesting material, Igor Ostapenko. A question and an observation, if I may.

Could you, or anyone else, provide information relative to the gentleman in post #2? The uniform that he is wearing appears to me to be that of some sort of royal (Prussian, I assume) household staff, like a chauffeur.

I agree with VtwinVince that the KVM is a spangenstueck. Also, I find it curious that the ribbon to the KVM is very worn while all other ribbons appear to be quite fresh, even the first two which I would think are more exposed to wear. Just an observation.

All things considered, a beautiful, and certainly unique, bar. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Best wishes,

Wild Card.

No, it's not an hallmark. The whole award is gilt brass, the upper ring probably (modern) replaced, and with some scratches and so.

There are probably nicer ones... Anyone? There must be some more out...

Thanks Sascha. Who knows how many St Anne cross were awarded to German officers ? Thanks


I would think, officers got the Order of St.Anne (or others). The medal was for the lower ranks.

Regards, Komtur.

    • 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.
