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.

    • 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
