Sincere thanks!  Do you know where the insignia are manufactured?  The overall format seems to have some elements in common with the [royal] BESA Order.

I think that despite the lack of the word "order" in its name it fulfills the role of a diplomatic order for foreign nationals in three classes: Grand Cordon, Commander with Star and Commander. Quite strange they did not think of a collar for heads of state. I am glad Donald Tusk is a recipient.

The medals of Professional Appreciation, despite being formally a separate award, seem to be attached to the order.

    • 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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
