Dear forumites,

 

I would like to show an interesting portrait photo of Grossadmiral Prinz Heinrich von Preussen with his medal bar. He wore different combinations of medal bars during his life.

Any thoughts of the medals he's wearing on his first medal bar here below depicted?

Thanks a lot, Komtur. Your picture clearly depicts Prince Henry of Prussia after 1897 and before the coronation of King Edward VII in 1902. Great photo, showing great details.

I would venture to say that on the previous bar (yours), you can see the following medals (10):

  1. Preussen, RAO 3. Klasse mit Krone;
  2. Preussen, KO 3. Klasse ;
  3. Preussen, Offiziers-DA für 25 Dienstjahre; 
  4. Hohenzollern, Fürstlich Hohenzollernscher Hausorden, Ehrenkreuz 2. Klasse mit Krone;
  5. Preussen, Goldene Hochzeitsmedaille 1879, 1. Klasse in Gold mit Emaille (OEK 1897);
  6. Preussen, Zentenarmedaille (Halbminiatur-Ausführung, sog. Prinzengrösse);
  7. Grossbritannien (British Empire), Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Medal 1897 with bar, awarded in gold to members of the Royal Family (73 awarded); 
  8. Grossbritannien (British Empire), Queen Victoria Golden Jubilee Medal 1887, awarded in gold to members of the Royal Family;
  9. KuK Österreich-Ungarn, Jubiläums-Erinnerungsmedaille 1848-1898, gestiftet durch Kaiser Franz Josef I zu seinem 50-jährigen Regierungsjubiläum am roten Band;
  10. Japan (Empire of the raising Sun), Medal of the Red Cross with Rosette.

Great looking medal bar, with almost only Dynastic orders and medals.

cheers,

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
