Monty's orders & medals

Recommended Posts

So . . . where is that roll of Order of Victory ribbon that Monty's favourite military tailor used to "doll-up" the FM's uniforms?? Must be some leftovers, lying unknown and unloved in some bottom drawer somewhere?


Ha, ha!! :D I certainly agree with you!! If you find it, please let me know!! As you know, this Order of Victory is really fascinating to me!!!



PS : Ed, Last week, I have visited quite extensively (several nights) :rolleyes: the 1911 bar... I have pics to post, and will make a thread dedicated to it...

Hello Christophe

Thanks for sharing....impressing !!!!

Any pictures of him wearing them ( or some of them ), that must be a likewise impressive sight ?

Must have a visit there next time im GB :D

You certainly wouldn't find any photos of him wearing the whole lot, he would need two Batmen to support him just to stay upright!

With the foreign awards (chest stars and sashes), they would be worn on appropriate occasions, i.e. the Russian awards would be worn for an audience with Stalin or his representive, the Tunisia award for a dinner party at the Embassy, the Danish award for a state visit and so on. For protocol reasons (and practical reasons too), you wouldn't combine say, the Russian and Danish awards. I have no idea how precedence would be sorted out if it was an event where more than one country who had given out awards was represented, probably easier to decline the invitation. :rolleyes:

Hi redarm,

Many thanks for the links. :jumping: These are excellent pics and of the highest interest.

Order of Victory : interesting to notice that it confirms that no SN is indicated.

Suvorov 1st Class : no SN (SN#133) indicated.

Thanks again.

    • 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.
