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 :(

    • 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.
