The guy ( http://users.skynet.be/hendrik/) that showed the picture must have taken it from eBay Germany, where the order was never sold.


Are you hendrik's friends?
Why did you know the story?.
Would tell me the evidence he have taken the picture from e-Bay Germany?

Do you know the e-Bay items number about you wrote the order

I expect your reply.

Hello mihai,

First of all, I do not know mr. Hendrik. The dealer from which I purchased the medal was from Germany, and before selling it to me, he listed it on eBay, where he wanted the huge price of 5000$ on it... Maybe that Hendrik took the pic from eBay, when the item was online (only once!)

Could someone please tell me a bit more about this Slovakian order and under what circumstances a Romanian officer might have been awarded it? (both the officer star and the neck order).

The same question applies for the following order, the Czech War Cross, instituted by the exiled Czech government from London.

Ironically, the SAME romanian officer received both awards, PLUS the Slovakian Cross (not pictured here). It doesn't make much sense, unless the slovakian orders were awarded pre-1944, and the Czech one post-1944.

Thanks for any explanations...

P.S. Photos were taken from Hendrick's website - I wasn't able to upload my own photos since I don't have a URL.

That would be impossible.  


Captain Medic Cosma C. Constantin (born 28 March 1906, Stanita, Roman county - died 28 September 1941, Malaia Belozerka, Ukraine), from the 16 Vanatori de Munte Batalion.
He received only the 2nd class, post-mortem. And there are others like him.

hello "Geto - Dacul"
Can you tell me if you have information, if other soldiers who died on 28 September 1941, in Belozerka, Ukraine, were decorated (even posthumously)?
I see that you refer to the book "Alesandru Dutu, Florica Dobre, Leonida Loghin, Romanian Army in WWII 1941-1945, Editura Enciclopedica, 1999, Bucharest, page 128.

I ask because my grandfather fell on the same day that the doctor, and he was part of the same 16th Mountain hunters battalion and since few years ago I collect data of any kind relating to this place (battle).

thank you in advance
