Finlandsky Regiment life-guards

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

A year ago, in a lot of an auction that I won, there was a miniature of the medal Finlandsky Regiment life-guards (20 x 20 mm).  I have tried to find information and have not found any similar badges. Does anyone know this badge and more specifically, in its miniature version? The only person I know with some knowledge about this kind of badges is someone who always wants to sell his book and for him, all the medals and badges that are not his are fake 😅. I would be very surprised if it is a fake for several reasons: first of all the rest of the lot was completely original and with highly valued medals, second, the miniature details are excellent, and finally, if you are going to fake do not do it with a miniature that is barely found ... I think.

Anyway, any information will be welcome.

Alex's looks full sized to me but by their nature miniature regimental badges are rare as they were generally worn by non Russian soldiers and cadets who served in the Russian army prior to WW1 as miniatures were only worn by Russians who served in the overseas diplomatic service.

    • 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.
