Paul, I checked the Indonesian Air Force trail. Bingo ! Good tip ! Thanks.

So it is a medal bar to a Dutch officer with the following medals:

Knight in the Order of Orange Nassau with the swords (military division),

a Dutch New Guinea Cross, (instituted 1962)

a Dutch UN operations medal, (instituted 1979)

an Officers cross XXX (30 years), (instituted 1866)

Nijmegen four days marches cross for 25 participations, (instituted 1909)

UN Medal with UNTSO ribbon (10 tours), (instituted 1950ties)

UN Medal with UNDOF ribbon and

an Indonesian Air Force Star ... class.

Cheers

Herman

It is the best Dutch grouping I have seen. I bet that this one belonged to a senior officer, maybe even a General? What are the Knight in the Order of Orange Nassau with the swords and the Dutch New Guinea Cross awarded for?

The Oranje Nassau is a Dutch state order given by Royal Decree. A civilian division (with oak leaves between the arms) for civil merit to the Kingdom and a military division for military merit.

The New Guinea cross was given for military service in the area in the 1950 -1960ties period.
