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.

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...)?

    • 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.
