Thanks!  Took me a while to find one!  I only collect those medals that are mounted as the recipient would have worn them court/parade mount, Saxon style, etc. (no loose medals or medals just hung on a new ribbon.).  Here's the reverse...

Hello readers.

Lt.d.R. Frauendorf, Martin was born Dec.11. 1883 and in peace time owned a factory. At the time of his activities leading to the award of the Military St.Henry he commanded the 5th Company of the Saxon Inf.Rgt. 102. He distinguished himself during the Battle of the Somme against French troops. The award is dated 12. Oct. 1916. He survived WW I.

This information is taken from the ref.book of recipients of the Military St.Henry .

Bernhard H. Holst

Thank you. Beside the 3 pieces there is more out of his post war time.

I could not find anything about his military service. All traces start after the war in Dresden when he used to be first telegraf worker and later telegraf assistent.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
