Sal,

Very nice! Although I stopped actively pursuing TR stuff some time ago, and have never really been into LC items, I am a sucker for nice awards accompanied by their documents.

I find quite a lot of nice and affordable Imperial documents on German eBay and am constantly astonished at the number of people who dispose of items that really did belong to members of their families.

As in your case, it often only becomes apparent when you are able to compare the name on the documents with the seller's name. I think it is a little sad that so many people have no interest in their family's history, but I am happy to look after the items for them.

Was this the only award and document the family had or do they have other documents, photos, letters, etc.?

Don't worry SAL, the doc is OK. Several writing do exist on these very documents for wounded, with spanish rank or german rank. :D:cheers: I hope you are still chatting on MSn while I write this. :rolleyes:

Ok, if Jacques says that there are documents with German ranks, it must be true.

I hope Jacques answered before Sal had read my post. Otherwise, I hope I did not scare you, Sal!

Best regards
