Very nice group!! You know who the group belong to? (Vem mottagaren är)

Little strange that it have the same order in diffrent classes. That is not the way "we" do it in Sweden. 

The order of the White Elephant and the order or the Crown changed its appearances in 1909. The attached document prove that. unfortunately its in Thai. 

The far left medal seams to be the Rajamangala Bhisek Medal, Commemorative Medal on the Occasion of the Longest Reign Celebrations of the Accession to the Throne of H.M King Chulalongkorn.

The second from left seams to be the Rajini Medal, Commemorative Medal of H.M Queen Saovabha Phongsri´s Investiture as Queen Regnant.

Hi Micke. Unfortunately I don't have a provenience. It's actually not the same orders in different classes, you'll have a Wasa 1st class commander, badge and star, and for the two Thai Orders, the Elephant and Crown, you'll have the same setup, badge and star of the orders.

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
