Tippelbruder commissions a medal for those who fought in the battle to protect Tippelbruder from the Stagonians

It's long overdue but at last the town council of Tippelbruder have commissioned a medal from David Linienblatt to be given to all those who fought in the battle for Tippelbruder. There will be 3 different but similar medals. A gold and silver star will be given to commanders; a silver medal will be given to those, officers and men, who distinguished themselves by notable acts of courage; and a copper/bronze medal will be given to all who fought in the battle, regardless of rank. No date has yet been set for giving out the new medal as it is still being designed but when it is completed there will be a ceremony in Tippelbruder, after which medals will be sent to all the allied countries that participated in the battle. Above is the basic design that is likely to be used for the medal.

I am quite sure that the officers and men of the Principality of Saxe-Bearstein who participated in the defense of Tippelbruder against those vile Stagonians will be honored to wear their medals.

So good to read from the Freistadt again!
Did the ine-eyed white hussar reappeared lately?
Will Peter Simplissimus comment?

Thank you. With luck the first consignments of medals will be on their way soon so perhaps there will be presentation ceremonies in the various states that participated in the campaign?

[Having a medal given to all participants anticipates the Waterloo Medal by 55 years - unless there was a European medal given to all combatants in a campaign or battle before 1815? It would be interesting to know...]

Thanks, J-L! :-) I really must write up some more Tippelbruder news - yes, it would be good to know if the white hussar has been seen again. And I've spoken to PS, who hopes to post again.

Cheers,

David.
