Grateful for any help identifying the medallions in this group.

 

They may have belonged to the person who owned a Dutch medal bar, with some other medals he collected.  See:

Also in the box were this set of what looks like related (to the 1936 Olympics) medallions, and the barred items to the right.

 

Appreciate any comments.

The three Olympic badges are NOK (National Olympic Committee), the other two are both Richter (Judge) badges. The other badges are various equestrian prizes, would suggest he was probably a member of the Dutch Olympic Committee and a judge in two of the equestrian events.

Nice set

OK, now this is getting really exciting. 

 

If these did belong to the Dutch bar you have in another thread (BTW:  nice bar!) It would be great to find his name on the 1936 Olympics list of equestrian judges.  Is there a list of the 1936 Dutch Olympic Committee judges?  

 

Your guy should be there.     :jumping:

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
