Albanian Langue Knights of Malta Insignia in SALE


Recommended Posts

For nearly 40 years, the question of whether a royal Albanian langue of the Roman Catholic Order of the Knights of Malta ever existed during the Italo-Albanian Kingdom [1939-43] puzzled cognoscenti.  Those interested will recall GMIC exchanges on this subject. [ See below, Bob's post of February 15, 2010].  Insignia purporting to be that of this order last appeared, to my knowledge, in a 1980's Graf Klenau auction catalog.  

Now it appears that a slightly damaged collar and pin back badge identified as this insignia may be located and even purchased!!!   Take a look at  https://www.audap-associes.com/lot/99922/10897357.  I do not know if free use provisions allow reproduction of the images so do not post them here.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem

    • I recall I did the same on hot days at Old Fort York back in 1973-74 - wool uniforms, and at 90F they would let you take your backpack off.   Michael
