Hi Andreas,

That's really great.

Just a comment: the bar "Haut-Guir" has nothing to do on the Médaille Coloniale. This bar must go on the Médaille commémorative du Maroc.

Question: what is the first bar on the Médaille Coloniale?

Again, this is really impressive to see the full set of a Légionnaire with so much campaigns.

You are a lucky man.

Regards

Bison

Hi and thanks Bison,

the first bar on the Médaille Coloniale is Tonkin.

The clasp is old mounted on this ribbon, I´ll try to make detailphotos tomorrow.

What I don´t understand is the 1900 Chine 1901 clasp on the Médaille commémorative de l'expédition du Tonkin.

The bar "1900 Chine 1901" I didn't see is not going on the Médaille commémorative du Tonkin. It goes on the Médaille commémorative de Chine which is not on the group. I suspect he was too young to have a chance to have this medal with those of the great war.

I wonder why it is here... But sometimes, one can find this kind of strange thing.

Tonkin is OK with the Médaille Coloniale. I have to check with my doc I don't have with me at the moment if it is possible to have the bar on the Médaille Coloniale AND the médaille commémorative du Tonkin. Not sure.

Incredible career! But not unbelievable.

Yes for sure. The knight degree used to be awarded to the NCOs pending the duration of their tour. The officers used to be awarded the officer's degree and above according to their rank.

Thanks Bison,

in Germany you had to be officer to get some enameled.

Now I´ve learned that the clasp Tonkin is at the least an award from the earley 1920´s

and the Tonkin Expedition commemorative medal is arround 1885 is it possible that

someone can be soldier allready 1885 untill NCO in the early 1920´s ?

I know that this was possible in the imperial German forces, was this possible

in the French army too ?
