Recommended Posts

Hi Gents,

I got a German medal bar which contains a RVM Edward VII Silver.

My question is, do there exist rolls with the names from German recipients?

My hope is, that it is possible to identify the former owner with the help from forum members.

Eyery help appreciated.

Kind regards
Andreas

There is 3 volume "Royal Service". I understand the recipient list is available in there. 

Bit I also have read that in the "first years" (whatever it means exactly), the list of foreign recipient was not complete. 

Thanks for this information Egorka, maybe there is somebody here who has these books

and can provide further informations?!

Every help appreciated.

Kind regards

Andreas

Andreas:  Gantzer and Thomel are not on the list for the RVM.  I have no idea what you mean by the "Danish list" as I can not find any mention of it in any of the posts in this topic. I  though that you were seeking German recipients.  I am totally confused!

Hi Gunner 1, I´ve posted a medal from a German medal bar in the Danish sektion, and

I got a list with German recipients, a collectors friend check these names aganist the

Dutch medal (from the same bar) I´ve posted here in the Dutch sektion. Gantzer and Thomel are the persons

who got both the Danish and the Dutch medal. So my hope was, that you could confirm his RVM too.

Sorry for the confusion.

Kind regards

Andreas

Thomel Frangott is listed as receiving the RVM in silver on 17 February 1905 for the Arthur Duke of Connaught's visit to Berlin for the opening of the Protestant cathedral. He is listed as portier.

Hope this is of help

Hi Paul, this information is from great help for me :thumbup:. With this information another

part of the puzzle was put together. 

Thanks a lot Paul, very much appreciated :beer:, that´s why the GMIC is my preferred forum. :jumping:
