Hi all, 

I'm wondering if some of Prinz Adalbert's awards could be identified 

So far, from what I can gather his awards are: 

 

Schwartzer Adler Orden Burststern

 

Roter Adler Orden - Gross Kreuz 

 

Preußen Königlicher Hausorden von Hohenzollern Kette der Großkomture

 

Ordenschnalle: 

 

1. Roter Adler Orden 3. Klasse mit Krone 

 

2. Kronen Orden 3. Klasse 

 

3. Goldene Erinnerungsmedaille an Fürst Carl Anton

 

3/4. 1897 Zentarmedaille
 

4. China Denkmunze

 

5. Schweden Pro Patria Medaille?

 

6. ?

 

The rest are unknown

I don't believe medal 5 is the Swedish Pro Patria medal, it would not make sense since it's a civilian medal awarded for long and faithful service. The Pro Patria medal also has the kings profile on the front and the ribbon is black with yellow edges, which this medal don't seem to have. 

 

I rather believe it's the Swedish medal of the Sword (Svärdsmedaljen) which was awarded to military personnel. Kaiser Wilhelm II received a special gold version in 1875. It was the only gold medal ever awarded.

Yes! Thank you, I knew I was in the ballpark with the medal being Swedish, could the next one be possibly ottoman or have some North African connection?

    • 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.
