    Would be great to find the 3rd degree as well indeed and re-unite these.

    Unfortenately his 3rd Class and other awards are lost, and will probably never be re-united, as is almost always the case. But if anyone finds one of these mentioned awards, please inform me

    Will keep an eye out for these. It'll be hard to re-unite but not impossible
