    Thanks for the information.Thought that was what it stood for.Saw the movie "Soldier of Orange" some 25 years ago,and have been interested in the Dutch and underground since.This pistol was a link to that time.

    Leo was Seargent-major instructeur in the dutch army. he was taken on the end of 44 and shot in neugamme. Frederik was shot treu his kidney by re-taking Central station of Utrecht with his group. he died in '53 becaus of it.

    Amazing,though I collect and shoot firearms,when I hold them,there is truely a link to the past.I have read many a book on what happened in Holland,your history is oft untold.Yes ,I would like to see the medal.My dad's brother was wounded in the Hurtgen forest.All were killed in the half track,except him.Twentyfive years later,he was still getting schrapenel pulled out at a veterens hospital.I have his Colt 1911 pistol he brought home.Some photos for your veiwing.
