    Apart from French and British medals, Guynemer received medals from Russia, Belgium, Serbia, Romania and Portugal.

    Scroll down towards the bottom of the page.
    Unfortunately, none of the actual medals is listed.
    However, if one considers an erroneous colourisation of the photograph, one of your medals could be the Order of Karađorđe's Star (Serbia):-

    The shape of the cross and configuration of the ribbon are very similar, and B/W photography often showed darker colours as light and vice versa.
    Of course, I could be wrong.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Don't know how complete this list is but this site (lots of good ref photos) lists his awards as:

    French decorations:
    - Officier de la Légion d'honneur (Officer of the Legion of Honour)
    - Médaille militaire (Military Medal)
    - Croix de Guerre 1914-1918 with 26 palms

    Foreign decorations:
    - Croix de l'Ordre impérial et militaire de Saint-Georges (Cross of the Imperial and Military Order of Saint Georges - Russian Empire)
    - Ordre du Prince Danilo Ist (Order of Prince Danilo 1st - Montenegro)
    - Officier de l'Ordre de Léopold (Officer in the Order of Leopold - Belgium)
    - Croix de Guerre (Belgium)
    - Ordre de Michel le Brave (Order of Michael the Brave - Highest Romanian Military decoration)
    - Ordre de l'Étoile de Karageorge (Order of the Star of Karageorge - Serbia)
    - Distinguished Service Order - DSO (Great-Britain)

    I checked them out to see if any match the photo. and my money is on:

    the first cross being this: https://www.wikiwand.com/fr/Ordre_imp%C3%A9rial_et_militaire_de_Saint-Georges (though the ribbon doesn't seem quite right?)

    ... and the other this: https://colnect.com/en/medals/medal...nilo_I_4th_Class-Monarchial_Avards-Montenegro


    This article from 1933 gives an interesting* account of his career.

    * as is the whole magazine: I liked this ad:

    There are images that wear different caps, any information on this?
  8. Order of Prince Danilo have a
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)]a crown on top and in the photo of Guynemer there is no crown in medal......

    No crown of Danilo medal:

    Yes, I noticed that but there seem to have been versions (lower class?) without the crown:

    The ribbon matches and note the distinctive dark inner and bright outline that only this medal has (none of the others match this distinction).
