Just in is this very clear photo of a Minesweeper in wear....

A close-up of the badge shows that it's possibly an example by F.W. Assmann & Söhne, LüdenscheidRight or wrong?

​Congratulations!  I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to find such a photo showing a recognizable Assmann, and you're quite right it is indeed an Assmann Minesweeper -- only the second one I've seen to date.

Not a KM award as such but a lot of KM personnel were awarded the Spanish Cross for service in the Spanish Civil War. This example is with swords and is the bronze type.

    • 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.

    • 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
