Norwegian Allied medals

Recommended Posts

Hello !

This is my favorite of the Norwegian Allied War Medals .

"Krigskorset med sverd" Norwegian War Cross with Swords . This shows a compare between Spinx of London made crosses and Thostrup of Oslo , Norway made crosses . The "Norwegian" made cross is made after the War ended . Spinx cross has the Sword on ribbon with prongs on back , and prongs showing on back of ribbon . Thostrup has the Sword sawn on the ribbon .

Very nice Jan. These are very often seen on Commonwealth Medal Groupings (especially Campaign Stars and Service / War Medals).

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
