« on: February 23, 2006, 10:21:30 PM »
i don't know if anyone has seen these, or not, so just in case......

(btw, if anyone can read russian, i'd be interested in knowing the orders these belong to...)

Thanks to other topics and threads (thank you George and Mike) I'm just beginning to understand the orders crosses,etc...

If I am not wrong I see on these engravings ( end XVIIIth century):

The collar of Saint Andrew and on the right Saint Alexandre of the Neva.

Engraving number 7: Saint Andrew (blue) reserved to the Imperial family, other sovereigns and very high ranked persons from the aristocracy . Founded in 1698 by Peter the Great.The most distinguished order on the hierarchy.

Engraving 42 : Saint Alexandre of the Neva (red) reserved to highly ranked civil or military nobility. Founded by Catherine the first 1725.

Engraving 43 : Saint Catherine (red with golden dotten line on the border)reserved to women: Imperial Family and very high ranked ladies of the aritocracy. Founded by Peter the Great 1714.

Last one is Saint Andrew the Apostle


Hope it is the right answer...

Could that be the medal your GGrandfather is wearing in his picture?
Looks like the same ribbon style.
The russian did not wear there ribbons in this tri fold.

I don't know where this medal which is in my family archives comes from.
I know that Tzar Ferdinand of Bulgaria has given orders and medals to Russian pilots who took part in the war against the Turks in the Bulgarian Army. It was the case of my great grand father in 1912-1913 who fought in S S Schetinine's detachment.
 :)
I shall check . Thanks.
