Thanks.

You sure now your trade.However ,what puzzles me is that in this Central Military Museum of Bucharest I've never seen the Order of the Bath.And I'm sure that some of the Romanian generals have received it.As did General Aristide Razu.The aboves belong to King Ferdinand.

I think the Blue Cross is Ordinul Mihai Videazu Clasa aIII-a(Michael the Brave Order III-rd Class)?

Andrei: Other Romanian officers may have received the Order of the Bath but the ones I listed are the only ones that are indicated as receiving the order in the War Office orders of which I have copies. Regards, Dick Flory
