Bulgarian St Alexander Order to Hungarian officer ?


Recommended Posts

I recently added an interesting Austro-Hungarian/Hungarian estate to my collection.

In this group is also the St Alexander order 4th class.

What could be the reason for a Hungarian officer to receive this order?

Would it be linked to his WW1 service?

Can these orders be researched at all?

Here a photo of the paper and the order in the group.

Regards, Erik

I cannot make out the Bulgarian language before/following his name in Bulgarian script indicating his status/profession--might be Major..Stefan Mislory..Royal Hungarian Army?? Date 1935 -- Perhaps awarded as a protocol decoration during a conference. The St. Alexander badge without swords [combat or non-combat service] equals civil merit so most likely not war related.
