What a tiny george cross........

Couldn't he afford a larger one or did he think so minimalistic about that award :P

Maybe he was just out of space, looking at the size of his brooche :P

No seriously, with foreign decorations you are just lucky when you can get your hands on a miniature decoration at all. I'm still looking for the miniatures of two foreign medals I hold myself. They're either not available or to large to put in with the rest of the (16 mm) miniatures.

I have some mini's

Nice medal with suspension. Below 2 examples of my collection. The big one is a silver medal without suspension, bilingual (French-Russian), and the small one is with suspension and only in Russian.

No, because they arent exposed in the museum, the still in the depot of the museum, to have a photo of those pieces, you have to follow the procdure of the museum see Reproductions Photographiques : demande et conditions

Great group there Igor.

As mentioned in the accompanying letter, that probably is a unique doc.

I've never seen another one, and believe me I've been looking....

Originally, these medals were not destined to be worn, but many soldiers attached some sort of suspension device and added it to their medal groups.

Best regards

Very nice ensemble, medal, document and pic! :cheers:

Am I mistaken or is that a British Military Medal as well on the picture, next to the Tolsto? medal?

The Military Medal should have a swivel bar suspender and is made of silver. This medal appears to be bronze?

No idea what it migt be :(

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
