Göring's medals - unknown picture - need help


Recommended Posts

As James has said, on display at the RAF museum, Hendon complete with a "Stuffed" Goring, it's been concluded on another forum that the uniform, GK, RK, PLM and Goring are all fakes, :D the medals posted in the case would appear to be genuine

There is a mistake with the medals in post #1. On the top right they put the breast star of the Imperial Austro-Hungarian Order of St. Stephan. The breast star that belongs to the sash badge should instead be the Hungarian Order of Merit with Holy Crown and Swords.

Remember that Regent of Hungary, Miklos Horthy, revived the Order of St. Stephan in 1938 and appointed a number of men to the Order. These included leading Hungarians [Cardinal Seredi and Prime Minister Teleki de Szek & Horthy himself plus perhaps a few others], Goring, Ribbontrop, supposedly Marshal Antonescu, and maybe others to the Order. Perhaps the display includes the award to Goring or a representation of it.
