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.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
