KuK Soldiers wearing medals - show your photos

Recommended Posts

Agreed! Great pictures thanks.

This mans trio caught my eye amongst all the bling...

Am I mistaken (often am) or is he, in fact, wearing two 1908 Jubilee medals?

One on the end on a civil ribbon and the one in the middle on a military ribbon?

Personally I’ve not seen that before....

Tony,

It certainly looks like he is wearing teo Jubilee crosses. I have not seen that before.

Hopefully some one will be able to shed some light on this mystery.

Cheers, 

Ian

我觉得这很常见啊,佩带两个有什么稀奇的?只要愿意就可以了

这个人不是士兵,但他这么佩戴也很有趣。

Yes ,they are miners , what is going on in the second pic is very odd . a clown holding a portrait of some high ranking person and a polish peasant dressed 19th century style. by the Austrian uniforms the pic is from 1917 or 1918

Hi Gents

that last one is a ‘funny’ one isn’t it.

not everyone in the crowd looks that happy....

and i would have asked if it’s ‘Kaiser Karl’ as well, certainly looks like.

~~~~~<<

Hello1812 Overture ... is there anything at all on the reverse of this last one please?

Hi Gents

Sadly. nothing on the back of either of these. 

First one- I'm guess it’s not that clear in the picture but I’m thinking there is a badge tucked in between a 1908 jubilee and a red ribboned merit cross ?

In real world, with an eyepiece, it’s looks like the badge has an Hungarian crown with the same overall design that I’ve seen on belt buckles...

~~~~~

and this next one looks to me like the medal has been hung on an existing ribbon bar thread already on the uniform.?

is it a plain merit cross on bravery ribbon?

is that likely as a first medal for a man of his rank?

i recall, in a recent thread, mention that studio props (equipment/uniform) were provided sometimes for use ......

anyway - here he is...

More than a few with silver bravery, bronze bravery and Karl cross combinations...

On the back row, right side, to me it looks like he has a large silver too....

this Hungarian liked badges!

I think 3 or 4 of them on his cap

something on his right pocket flap 

And one on his left breast pocket - even with eye piece not sure if it’s an 8 or 9 on it.

On his pocket and even on his cap this kappenabzeichen:
