Greetings gentlemen,

I just wanted to conclude that in the post #3 we can see pictures of all 4 (5) types of the Charity Cross.

-- 1. type has a year 1912 inscribed with large numbers on the front side with the Cyrillic text "ZA NEGU RANJENIKA I BOLESNIKA"

(for taking care of the wounded and the sick) around it.

-- 2. type is the same as the previous except the year is changed to 1913, and the eagle on the back side is silver. Only on this type color

of the eagle is silver, on the rest of the medals it is always golden.

-- 3. type has the inscription "ZA NEGU" in the central part of the medal and the the rest of the slogan "RANJENIKA I BOLESNIKA"

and the year 1912 around it. This type has 2 variants. First - medal is minted from a single piece of metal, and the second variant

where the central part is made separately and then applied to the cross.

-- 4. type is different by size. First three types are 40x40mm while dimensions of the central part are 15x15mm,

fourth type is 38x38mm and 18x18mm.

Regards,

Radmilo

Hi Radmilo,

Would you have any idea which Cross of Mercy might have been issued to nurses who served in Serbia in 1915? I have a letter from the British Red Cross to my grandmother announcing the award on behalf of the Kingdom of Serbs Croats and Slovenes in 1920 but the medal has been lost.

regards,

Rickus

Greetings Rickus and welcome to the GMIC.

I've tried to find out which type of the cross was issued at what period and had no luck. Serbian magazine Dinar #23 from 2004 on page 84 contains a great text about the Charity Cross. It can be read there that the first two types were also awarded during WW1... Around 7000 of these medals were awarded and my guess would be that your grandmother received the first variant of the third type considering that that type is the most common one. I'm sorry that I was not able to give you more precise answer...

Best regards,

Radmilo

Amazing piece, thanks for photos! I have never seen anything like that before.
Two details caught my attention, pin is put on the front side of the medal and one of the central medallions is rotated.
Regardless of that a great find, my congrats!

    • 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.
