Good morning all

I have recently seen the attached medal. Can anyone provide me with any information, please?

The reverse is blank except an inscribed number.

I am presuming a Belgian Resistance Association medal?

Kind regards

Dave

Many thanks Stuka f and VC89 for your help. It is not a group I had seen any mention of before.

If either of you are aware of a site dedicated to Resistance medals I would be  really interested in it.

Cheers again.

Dave

If you (ever) find one you may let me know :).

You find some medals on one website, a few others on an other website, forums, ... . There are just so many unofficial medals in Belgium that it is very hard (or even impossible) to make such a website. There was once a website with a lot of them but he quitted because many of the information and pictures were used without his approval. He still (or at least a few years ago) awnsered questions by e-mail. See his website: http://users.skynet.be/belgian.medals/index.html. Maybe he can help you.

I have previously tried to contact Loek with no success I am afraid. I even only recently asked Hendrik if he had any contact details for him but he didn't have. Even Hendrik's amazing site has disappeared :( for the moment at least.

If I do find anything I will let you know. Dracomedals has a variety of medals with descriptions I have used in the past.

Best wishes

Dave

This is the medal for the Organisation "Athos" which was involved in pure intelligence gathering for transmission to London I have a number of similar medals e.g. Group "D" . I would be keen to obtain an example of this medal. my email address is maher@archaeologist.com

    • 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.
