Well, Ed, I know you'll be in Amsterdam, then going to Paris, you'll come straight through Brussels.

Stop off, we'll have a beer, and go the Army Museum together, which also has a great collection. :beer:

Now where were we?

Ah yes: Senegal

After that fascinating post by vatjan :jumping: back to my"ordinary" pieces.

Again NIGERIA - this time the awards of the Armed Forces:

Bravery Awards in their order of precedence:

- The Nigeria Star

- The River Niger Star

- The River Benue Star

- The Nigerian Eagle

- The Distinguished Service Medal

And two LSGC Awards:

- The L S and G C Medal

- The Forces Service Star

These awards were instituted on 20.09.1965 and made by the firm of Toye, Kenning and Spencer Ltd, London.

In the photo you can see:

- the golden "River Niger Star"

- the silver "River Benue Star"

The reverse of each is blank.

Do they have all of deGaulle's stuff? Always useful to know where the medals of the big ones lie.

Hello Ed,

I tend to believe so as well. In another "window" as the one Jan posted pictures of, there's also his unique collar of the Liberation Order (the only one ever awarded).

Unfortunately (and as Jan confirmed me last weekend), the collar is displayed right where two glass partitions meet ... impossible to take a decent picture of it.

Ed, do PM me as to when you will be in Paris (and possibly stopping in Brussels) ... 't would be nice to have a drink/meal together and have a chat if your time table allows for it.

Cheers,

Hendrik
