For the quick reply, the pics and the link : thanks, guys! I haven't examined the old thread in any detail, but I'm surprised they didn't name the award in honor of Yorck von Wartenberg (for defying the King and allying his corps with the Russians against Napoleon). I'm also somewhat surprised they used the cross configuration : very Christian Europe of them. Thanks again!
