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

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.

    • 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.
