Ein Deutscher

Recommended Posts

Good day,
I am new to this forum and wanted to introduce myself. Unfortunately, I have not found the right subforum and the admin does not answer, so I write it here.

Hello, I am pickup from Germany Bavaria. I think your forum really interesting. I myself collect German badges and tinnies and unit crests and challenger coins from the American troops of my hometown could like to post here. Do you have something like a database?

I'm not very good at writing in English, so I use the Google translated ... so do not be surprised if something was not translated correctly


Greeting

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath.

It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
