Hello Everyone,

This medal just arrived the other day and my attempts to find out much history on it has not met with much success.

It is a Baden Campaign Medal 1849 with an original ribbon, not one of the newly made ones. From what I can find out, this is a commemoritive medal awarded to those who took part in the 1849 campaign against insurgents. That's about all I could find. I am hoping that the membership can help with more details as to why it was awarded and who were the "insurgents"?

Thanks for any information you can give me. It is, as always, apperciated.

Regards

Brian

By goom, that's a Bad'n :cheeky: (I've always wanted to say that)

You can find out most if not all of what you want to know, and about the other 1848/49 insurrections throughout Europe here.

Hi Tom,

You're a funny guy...Bad'n! :cheeky: I live in New Hamburg which is next to a small village named Baden, except we pronounce it as Bay-din. Next to that is Kitchener which was known as Berlin until 1916. It's a pretty German area so why they pronounced the name they way they do is a mystery to me.

Thanks for the histoical documents, I printed them off and will read them a little later. Too much time in front of the computer screen reading text is hard on the old eyes. :unsure:

Thanks again Tom.

Regards

Brian

    • 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.
