On no 5 is there any engraver's name on the medal, not totally clear from the image, if so there is  a chance it might be identifiable. Alas we knew a very knowledgeable collector of Belgian commemorative medals but alas he has gone to the great collectors gallery in the sky.

But this two are quiet intresting to me!

It is a bit of a special story and goes back a long time.

Rik Sauter was the father of Bob who was best friend with my father.

I used to play as a child in the atelier of the guy, when visiting him. It was like a magical place to me with lots of non finished statues and also lots of paintings of  Rik's brother Felix Sauter.

The grand son (also named Kris) sold me nearly the whole atelier when he moved from his parental house.

I had like hunderds of items, but had to sale greatest part, because it was my business and I invested quiet some money in getting it all.

I did well, but never the less regreated I had to part of it. It is like breaking up a soldiers convolute.

I howe ever managed to kept 3 paintings of Felix, one representing his brother the sculpture.

And over the years had the luck to find stuff related to the Sauter family.

And so are 2 of the medals of this bunch:

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
