Thanks Paul. I just wish I knew more about it. It is quite attractive.

I agree. The only place I can find it listed is in Prochazka Osterrreichisches Ordenhandbuch, Munchen 1974 no 1130. It describes the badge but unfortunately gives no details of the issue entitlement.

Based on a recent Lanz of Munich catalogue there appear to be at least two varieties of the badge, one in silver and enamel by G. A. Schied, Hollo Utcza 6, Budapest, hallmarked with GAS monogram on suspension ring and another in bronze-gilt and enamel which is unmarked.

Hope this is of some help

There was a thread on these a while back - as I recall there was a bronze, silver, sliver with enamel and gold w/ enamel - these were awarded for contributions to the war effort - sort of a War Aid Cross - there was also a ribbon that the medal was suspended on -

So Scott - does this mean we all have more competition for Hungarian Militaria!??

Thanks for that I wondered why it was difficult to find much information about it this clears it up a bit.

WOW Scott - that is a very nice uniform and I must say any man living in the 21st century that can still fit into an actual WWII uniform makes me jelous! :cheers:

Thanks Hunyadi. I bought it on a whim not knowing what size it was from the son of the officer who owned it. It was his backup uniform. He was burried in his best uniform with all his medals and full ceremony. His son came acrossed this uniform when he was clearing out his fathers old clothes years later. I got the tunic breeches and belt for less than $100. The hat which is an enlisted soldiers hat dated 1944 was three times the price. When I got the uniform I was amazed to find that it fit me and I'm no small guy either. Of all the uniforms I own it is my favorite. I think it is the most beautiful design and everytime I wear it out I get complements. Scott

    • 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.
