  1. Hi

    Wonder if anyone can help on trying to id this award. Ex RSIGS colleague was clearing out following a family bereavement.

    Said lady had worked for the "Government" , could speak fluent French so may have been involved in some liaison activities.

    Could anyone ID the following award

    Thanks in advance.

  9. With those colours, could be Italian?
  10. Or Hungarian; previous versions of the Hungarian flag had a cross of Lorraine on them, so that looks likely.

    No idea though.
  11. Will check that, I thought the Hungarians had the Cross of St Stephen, or whatever it is in Hungarian - but two bars rather than just one.

    Hungarian. The three hills in front represent the three mountain ranges of Hungary.
  13. Yep Italian. It was an award given to Italian soldiers, sailors and airmen who took part in victorious battles and is very, very rare.
