Remembered Today:

Identification of medals


Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a postcard of numerous dignitaries and medals, but not really sure of the era, who, dates, etc though I think it is likely to be just after WW1 going on the other postcards with it such as peace celebrations, parties and pageants - can anyone help with what the uniforms and/or medals could be ?

Full size version should be here:

The Gent @ Front is King Of The Belgians!!!

The following gent is I think French & has the Legion D'Honneur Grand Cross on his Breast amonst others ,the other Gent may be Italian & is wearing what looks like a GC of St Maurice & Lazuras???
