Hello all forum members

Happy New Year 2020 to all collectors. For the beginning 2020 I'd like to share pics from My British awards collection.

Please enjoy!

The Most Excellent Order of The British Empire Knight  Grand Cross of the order is interesting. Regarding to Sir Frederick Ponsonby (1867-1935) the first cases of issue were lingered : G.C.B.E. (all from June 1917) and renamed G.B.E. The reason was possibility of confusion between CB and the CBE. The one in My collection is the first model ie. G.C.B.E.

Hello Reinhard,

thank you for showing this very attractive collection of British orders!

I am generating a register of the Royal Victorian Order numbers with the corresponding names of the recipient. Would you be so kind and give me the numbers an names of the decorations with belonging papers you show, to add them to this register?

Thanks in advance,

Komtur.
