Title: Another attempt - can you help ID these medals
Post by: MataHariwriter on January 03, 2007, 05:12:40 PM
I am nothing if not persistent!  Here, I think, is the second photo of Vadim de Masslov.  Can anyone tell what medal (or is it MEDALS) he is wearing in addition to the St. George's Cross?  He was a captain in the First Impersial Special Regiment in France in 1916.

Thank you!  Any help is very much appreciated.

Ok, let me try the photo again.  I keep re-reading the directions but (to me) they are a little ambiguous.  [img [http://www2.snapfish.com/slideshow/AlbumID=149284660/PictureID=2845353882/a=76930675_76930675/t_=76930675] /img]

Does this work?

Hi Pat,

Lots of people make the same mistake so don't worry
about it. You are simply chopping off part of the html
img placement code when you paste your photo link
in between the the img brackets.

Here is your first photo from your image server.

Forum member Mike, states that the cross he is wearing is
a St. George Cross 4th class for officers.

Good luck,
