Thanks Jeff & Bill,
Jeff, When I posted these a couple of years ago on WAF, I believe you and maybe a couple others IDed all of the ribbons as LOM, BSM, ARCOM, ADM, AT, EAME, WWII Victory, Occupation, French Legion of Honor, French CdeG, Order of Oranje-Nassau (Netherlands), Belgian Crown Order, Belgian CdeG, Military Order of Merit of Adolph of Nassau (Luxembourg) and the Luxembourg CdeG. I hadn't posted the box of extra ribbon lengths but knew there was the (unIDed to me) OBE ribbon amongst the others. He doesn't show that in his ribbon rack, so I'm assuming he didn't earn it, or there is an entire bar missing. Another thing I noticed with this setup is that there is a conspicuous absence of WWI awards, so once again, a missing bar or a very young LTC/COL for WWII age standards.
Do you think it possible to track the ID of this officer through his many foreign gongs? It's starting to make me giggle, first with Gary C. stating he was definitely a "STAFF WONK" and you confirming it, and now his decorations being called "GONGS!" A staff wonk with a chestful of gongs! Now that's funny! Would there be any lists or Army compilations within OMSA of upper rank "staff wonk" officers who earned this exact rack?
Bill - An outstanding Belgian Order! Is this in your collection?
