Well done indeed!

How 'official' is it? You imply that it can be worn in uniform, is that correct?

Dear Megan,

many thanks :cheers: .

That's correct: The SIGNUM MEMORIAE can be worn on the uniform of the Austrian Armed Forces :D .

There is a wide range of non-state-decorations, which can be worn in uniform (NGOs, church and others). Usually the organisation or person, who confers the decoration, has to apply at the "Chancellary for Decorations" at the Austrian Government for getting the permission, that the special decoration can be worn officially in uniform.

Best regards :beer:

Thanks, Christian.

In researching current Austrian awards for my website I found quite a few - but is there a definative list of what may be worn?

Would you be willing to permit me to use the image of your medal (with due acknowledgement of course)? Given its rarity I'm unlikely to see another!

Dear Megan,

no problem, you are free to use the scans of my medal and my document :D .

The most senior expert for current Austrian awards is Kabinettsvizedirektor Dr. Heinz Anton HAFNER heinz.hafner@hofburg.at http://www.hofburg.at/organigramm/organigramm.htm , deputy head of staff in the office of The Federal President of the Republic of Austria http://www.hofburg.at/index.php?sid=48&amp...amp;language=en . All Austrian awards go over his desk ;) .

Best regards :beer:

I have come a bit late to this thread, but I offer my congradulations on your being awarded the SIGNUM MEMORIAE. As we say in my navy 'Bravo Zulu' which means well done!:-)

Dear Ian,

many thanks for your BZ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bravo_Zulu ;):cheers:

SKKH Otto von Habsburg confers even more interesting decorations :rolleyes: :

- THE (AUSTRIAN) ORDER OF THE GOLDEN FLEECE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Golden_Fleece , which is out of reach for non-aristocrats :( .

- THE KNIGHTLY ORDER OF SAINT SEBASTIAN IN EUROPE http://www.egs-schuetzen.com/Flash/Spracha...rder/order.html , which comes from the "European Society of Historic Marksmen".

Best regards :beer:

Christian
