that's got schwarzburg and most of the other states/duchies/principalities as well!!!

looking at this again.... still panting heavily....

what is the award to the left of the 1934 Ehrenkreuz?

would this possibly have been an issue to someone

high up in wilhelm's political structure? general staff?

it must have been a mover and shaker.

any thoughts from the ricks, as well?

A small offering to the cause. If this looks a little odd (aside from the incorrect ribbon) that is because, at 22.21 mm x 19.73 mm, not including the loop, it is a prinzen example. The correct ribbon would be 35 mm wide in the same shade of blue as shown with 1 mm white side stripes.

Best wishes,

Hi Ulsterman,

Thank you for the compliment. According to Hessenthal u. Schreiber, it looks like they had one line battalion and a Landwehr battalion as well.

I also have a full sized piece; but it is not here at home. I am making arrangements to get it here - hopefully tomorrow. Meanwhile, I found this little guy hanging around.

Thank you again and best wishes,

Wild Card

Hi Graham

You have got two beauties. Thanks for sharing them with us. It's not easy to find those medals on the market.

So is OEK2 the austrian iron crown order 2nd class? Pretty high for a hof fourier with 4th class awards

No, this is a more appropriate Oldenburg Ehrenkreuz 2. Klasse:

Hello everybody

There is a lot of beauties here. Thanks for sharing those with us.

@Graham, you have an impressive collection.

@Komtur, like always your collection is impressive.

I used to have one SE3X with original box.

Here is one ribbon bar of Maempel who served with IR 95 during WW1

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
