help please !!! :beer:

I'll help you with the translation:

"The Order of the Crown, knight class with swords, was awarded to 2nd Lieutenant Chiritescu Stefan from 30th Regiment Muscel, for the bravure and skill he showed when he commanded his company during the fighting on Marghiloman Hill."

The document for the Order of the Star:

"Captain Chiritescu Stefan is awarded the Order of the Star, knight, with ribbon for military virtue, for the bravure and skill with which he led his company during the fighting on the Pig's Hill (Hill 528), during 16-21 August 1917. He stayed with his men at all times and repulsed after a bloody combat the 12 assaults made by the enemy, who wanted to break the front lines at this point. He was wounded in action 3 times on 21 August 1917 but stayed with his men, continuing to command his unit until nightfall."

The other documents are not very relevant. The first one simply confirms that he was awarded the Russian Order of St. Anne, 3rd Class, while the small document confirms that he received the bravery ribbon for his service in WW1.

As for his Order of Michael the Brave, he received it by Royal Decree no. 849/11 July 1917, "for the courage with which he led his company during the fierce combat on 11-15 June 1917, when he enveloped the Southern flank of the Manastioara Hill, forcing the enemy to abandon the position and capturing 2 officers, 150 soldiers and many weapons. He showed the same military qualities during the battles of Racoasa and Serei Valley."

    • 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.
