Hello hamilcar,

A nice collection you bought. Only the medals with the full orange colour are Dutch. They are called the 'Trouwe dienst medaille' Loyal service medal.

It is given to all Dutch military personell below the rank of officer. A bronze one is given for 12 years of service, a silver one for 24 years and a gold one for 36 years.

 

The left one on the last picture is a Korean miniature medal for the Korean war given to military personell who served in the Korean war from 1950 - 1954.

 

Cheers

Herman

The SW Asia US Service medal is at least of the era of the Gulf War due to the case and the strike. The Other US Medal is a US Army Achievement Medal and it appears to be a recent issue piece. These medals are both very common and won't bring much.

The third set of pictures are for Romanian Medals of Merit instituted in 1954 for 15, 20 and 25 years service.  I think they are fairly common and only worth a few dollars apiece.  Nice specimens though!

    • 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.
