A nice collection indeed!

In brackets [ ] there are pats of the names which do not appear directly in the Hungarian names. The years do not necessarily correspond with the year when an decoration was actually awarded (see the Iron Cross) - I believe they are the years in which particular decorations were officially approved to be worn. Do not be surprised that Austro-Hungarian and Hungarian awards were all mixed up - old Austro-Hungarian decorations were considered an integral part of the Hungarian award system.

I think this list is stll incomplete. The photos depict Lieutenant Colonel Pisky with the Commander Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit, which is not on the list. I think it could have been mistaken for the Officer Cross which should be worn as a pin decoration.

What regards the "Polish Partisan Order 2nd Class" I have no slightest idea what that could be. There was no award like that! Certainly not in 1939!!! Any ideas are welcome!

Lukasz :)

Dear Thierry and All,

You are welcome, glad I could help :D

I am still intrigued by that commander cross, allegedly of the Hungarian Order of Merit. It has intrigued me for three reasons:

1. If Pisky was awarded with it, why wasn't it on the list of his honours?

2. If it is the Hungarian Order of Merit, it should be worn around the neck, above all foreign neck decorations.

3. The ribbon does not seem to be the correct Order of Merit ribbon.

I have decided to have another look at the photos and upon a closer examination I am sure that despite some resemblance, it is not the Hungarian Order of Merit at all! IMHO it is the commander cross of the General Bulak-Balachowicz Cross of Valour, an unofficial (not to say self-styled) decoration, awarded in Poland before WWII (for some reason one of the most sought decorations on collector market). It is possible that the mysterious Polish Partisan Order 2nd Class may refer just to this award.

What do you think?
