Post your miniature medals.


Recommended Posts

Here is my contribution, mine. This was taken at my buddy's retirement ceremony. We went through Avn OBC together and still friends over 20 years later. They're not mounted properly and it's something I want to get done down the road. But I / we still looked good!

A recent acquisition from a few months ago- beautifully mounted and shows quite a breadth of service.  I have been told this may be attributable but the potential ID dictates further research.

I have an odd rack here, the medallions are not on the correct ribbons it appears and a few of the ribbons I am unable to identify? Next question is the opposite side of the medallions are odd as well, art least to me. Any help with ID would be appreciated, the National Defense. Occupation and Pacific theater I obviously am familiar with but not the others.

 

Thanks,

Robin-

Thanks Chris.  That's 30 years worth so far.  Another 14 planned, although I don't think there are many additional new medals that can be added.  It's been a fun career.  I absolutely love the work and ability to contribute to the bigger picture.

Here is a set.  The Navy Cross is interesting in that in the full size set it is one of those Black Widow types, so I presume the miniature is some sort of replacement only because I've seen miniature Navy Crosses of the Black Widow variety issued to individuals of the same era for the same action.

Here is one I saw posted on Letgo a couple of years back. I tried to make contact with them, but it was all crickets. I think it was out of the Vegas area. Did anyone grab these?

The grouping of Captain Herbert H. Michael: 1904 graduate of the US Naval Academy (classmate of Admiral Bull Halsey), veteran of Cuban Pacification, the Conflict in Mexico, WWI, and recipient of the US Navy’s second highest award for valor: the Navy Cross.

Captain Michael served as Commanding Officer of the Tucker class Destroyer USS Conyngham during WWI, which saw heavy action during the Great War’s Battle of the Atlantic. Conyngham was involved in numerous rescue operations of shipwreck survivors that had been victims of German U-Boats, and assisted in the attacks of several U-Boats during the course of her career. Most notably was the case of U-62.

Conyngham was escorting a convoy of merchant vessels when suddenly a German U-Boat’s periscope (U-62) became visible in the middle of the group. Immediately, Captain Michael ordered the Destroyer to attack the now submerged submarine with her depth charges. After a short while,oil and debris welled up to the surface from where the submarine had dived, leading Michael and his crew to believe they’d had a kill. The US fleet and British Admiralty commended Michael for his bravery in pressing the attack on this submarine, and awarded Conyngham a “probable” kill. Unfortunately though, it was later discovered that U-62 (though severely damaged) had survived the encounter to fight another day.

At the conclusion of the Great War, for his excellent leadership skills and unwavering bravery throughout the Atlantic campaign, Captain Michael was awarded the Navy Cross and the Commander grade to the French Legion of Honor.

His Navy Cross citation reads:

“The President of the United States takes pleasure in Awarding the Navy Cross to Herbert H. Michael for distinguished service in his line of profession as Commanding Officer of USS Conyngham, engaged in the important, exacting, and hazardous duty of patrolling the waters infested with enemy submarines and mines, in escorting and protecting vitally important convoys of troops and supplies through these waters, in offensive and defensive action, vigorously and unremittingly prosecuted against all forms of enemy naval activity during the Great European War”

Captain Michael would continue to serve in the US Navy until retiring in 1939 as Commanding Officer of the US Naval Training Station in Norfolk Virginia. He would later pass away in 1948.49303be8c24b3e3d45fa66b10df7ec89.jpg
