Great topic, many thanks for your effort.

I apologize for going a little bit off topic but it might be interesting to mention that apart from many of our people even the two cities in Serbia were awarded with Czechoslovakian decorations.

I believe that Belgrade and Šabac were awarded with the War Cross in 1925. Šabac received this decoration because of it's casualties, that whole area suffered very much from the Austro-Hungarian retribution. After occupying the city their troops devastated it and committed many crimes against the civilian population which was cut in half by the end of war.

The Cross can be seen on coats of arms of both cities.

Czechoslovak Military Medal of Merit(Československá vojenská medaile za zásluhy)

Continuing on from the earlier posting, here are some comparisons of what I believe to be the silver 1st Class English & Czech versions (English on the left in the first 2 images but on the right on the 3rd). They are easily distinguishable when seen together, the other characteristic which I personally use is the "V" over the C in C.S.R. but it is only an observation I have made not that I have had confirmed anywhere else.

    • 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 .
