Christophe,

You should be able to right click the page with your mouse and then use the option to translate to English. Or copy and paste and then use Google Translate.

This is the section I was referring to, the English is not perfect but hopefully you will get the gist of it:

During the different periods of its existence, the Order of Courage and its soldier's badge were produced in different places - initially in Russia, and later in Austria-Hungary (Austria), Germany and here in the studios of Nikola Sabov, Strahil T Niloshev, Onik Odabashian, Onik Chakarov and Berge Kerestedzhiev.

Hi Christophe,

In addition of those makers ,  Very small numbers of the Bravery Order were made in France

Here is a picture to what is believed to be the very first model of the 4th Class of the Order for Bravery made by V.L

The miniature is also made by V.L French makers made Those Orders are extremely rare

You can see the distinctive features of this model when compared with other models made other non French makers

Note the Bulgarian makers stepped-in in the later stages of WW2 and post War period. Mainly in the Regency and the Republican periods Their quality was not not very good, since the Orders were made in  small private workshops

Hi Igor,

 

Nice cross

Those crosses in silver are rare I I have one more It is marked 925 like yours. This cross was discussed in another forum.

I suspect that some of them are made by order by the awarded persons. The fact is that some of those Soldier Crosses were awarded to non Bulgarian officers mainly German ones.

The prove is that I came across of few  German awarding Documents  to German officers

    • 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.
