Sweden The order of the Sword


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have tried to find more information about especially Swedish war time award "Knight Grand Cross" (in swedish Riddare med stora korset) or "Knight Grand Cross First Class" (in swedish Riddare med stora korset av första klass ). Is there any list of list of recipients and datums even in swedish? And has been ever in public sale the order with brilliants?

Hello Janne!

 

I found this list of recipients for Knight grand cross.

https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lista_över_riddare_med_stora_korset_av_Svärdsorden

The last recipient was Mannerheim of Finland.

Perhaps it´s possible to get more information if you contact the Swedish Royal Court?

 

As far as I know there has never been a order with brilliants for public sale.

These were the recepients for the order with brilliants according to Wikipedia:

Hei Johan!

Thank you very much for your answer and link! That list I didnt found earlier.

Do you know if the badge of the Knight grand cross is similar to the same normal Sword badge? I tried to find pictures of that but no luck so far.

    • 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.
