For more details about the Imperial German lifesavingmedals you can have a look in my book:

Friedhelm Beyrei?

Ehrenzeichen deutscher Staaten f?r die Rettung von Menschenleben

Norderstedt 2006

You will find there nearly all informations about these decorations.

Best regards

Lifesaving medals are something really special and among, if not the most distinctive awards - each medal a life saved from greatest danger... you cannot say the same about many other awards! So, desp

Hello Kapitular:

A warm welcome to you! Thank you for joining us. It is nice to have you aboard. I'm certain that we will have many questions in the future that you can assist the membership in answering. Also, thank you for pointing out your excellent book regarding lifesaving medals to the membership here (For all of you who do not have this book it is a "MUST HAVE" addition to the library of any Imperial German medal collector).

My first Saxon Lifesaving medal ribbonbar :jumping::jumping:

I will post better pic when I get it, I just have a question

The second award I took as a Brunswick BUT :speechless1: is there any possibility that it is a Saxon-Altenburg Merit Cross without swords ?

Have a nice weekend all and my lots of Imperial awards fall on you (old local saying in Sweden) :rolleyes:

I'm not entirely sure whether that IS a Saxon Lifesaving Medal in 4th place since there seems to be a ghost of robin's egg blue remaining at the top of the back, and the Albert's green is similarly faaaaaaded away.

But (after extreme effort) that one gave up its owner due to the unique combination of Saxon and Meiningen awards:

Lucky for me I did the Meiningen rolls. :catjava:

Amazing collection, Kapitular!

Were any of these named?

Where is the best place to buy your book (it's been on my list for a long time...)?

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
