Stunning Nick! I love these!

The fellow in #38 was especially interesting - wearing both a Third Class Double Dragon neck badge, and a Republican Striped Tiger.

Not the done thing I would have thought.

Again, fascinating images!! Sincere thanks for posting these, Nick! It appears that Prime Minister Giichi Tanaka wears a Bulgarian St. Alexander Order star below his Striped Tiger star. Is it possible to verify that award?

It certainly looks like Bulgarian St. Alexander Order breast star ;)

I'll try to make a better close up of this star, but I don't think that letters on perimeter will became visible...

As for 100% verification - this info could be in "Peerage of Japan" published by the Japan Gazette in 1912. Unfortunately I don't have this one...

Glad you liked these photos lads! :cheers:

    • 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.
