Third attempt at trying to reply (nothing to do with GMIC) I have a new computer which is possessed by Satan.

More info, is the 5th award a second award of the First Class Cross, if so must be horrendously rare (until certain members of the Russian trade miraculously try to reproduce it).

Look forward to hearing.

All the best,

Paul

Hi Paul!

First of all - nice pair of crutches! :cool:

Yes, I think our cavalier has two 1st classes.

Indeed this is horrendously rare if not unique ...

Best,

Nick

Marvellous picture, do you think it is a Great War or a Civil War period photo. If Civl War it would probably make more sense of the second 1st Class, especially as the cossacks were major players and a lot of decorations were awarded during the period. Civil war decorations as you know are extremely interesting but also a potentiial mine field. Maybe someone one day will publish a definitive work on the series.

Maybe I'm being thick but where do the crutches come in.

I am inclined to think that this is WWI photo.

:lol:

The emblem under your avatar...

I guess it is

But when smaller size it looks (a little bit) like two crossed crutches ... :whistle:

No?

But thеn again you are often wonder how I make 2 and 2 make 5 :lol:

Cheers,

Nick
