If it's a gold crown, it could possibley be Commander Grade? To be honest i don't know.

Kind regards

Hello ,

Looking for last not identified ribbon, I thought 3 possible decorations that can be for what I look.

Lithuanian Order of Vytautas, the Great

Principality of Monaco Order of Grimaldi

Danish Order of Danneborg.

Can anyone has a clue ?

Cheers

Hard to say, but I think the orange one might be the Order of Queen Maria and the one next to it the "Cross of Sanitary Merit" - both Romanian and both appropriate for a medic.

I think you can rule out the Dannebrog Order. The ribbon is very wrong (even for an outfitter without the exact ribbon) and the crown doesn't make any sense at all.

And more important: He is not in any of the Dannebrog lists...

My guess is one of the Spanish crosses (Order of Merit etc.)

I Think James is right.

Here are the ribbon for Cross of Sanitary Merit Medal (War time). Match with the ribbon of Ripcke. The Crown means Commander Cross. I believe that?s my question is solved.

Cheers

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
