Hi Denis!
Here's Tataranu. I'm not 100% sure but I think Victor posted this picture. If not, I don't really remember who did it. Anyway, here he is:

Best,

FANGIO

Denis,

the V. and vitez is the same, means approx knight, it's a title, not the part of his name. The dálnoki is his noble forename also, the pure, short form is Béla Miklós (in Hungary Miklós Béla). He was the commander of the Hungarian Fast Corps in 1941, that's why he received that award.

But don't forget: the RK for foreigners some times was more political, than military award (altough, for example, the Fast Corps performed very well).

If you are looking for some excelent performances from the other Axis countries, check their own high decorations (Mannerheim Cross, Mihail Viteazul Orden, Italian and Hungarian Gold Medals for Bravery, etc).


BTW Miklós was a prime minister of the provisional Hungarian Government at Debrecen also.

Hello everybody

Thanks to Fangio for the picture.
@ Victor : thanks for the correction for several DoB and DoD. I wonder where I have found these ones of which several are very remote with yours (ie the proper one).
@ Csaba : yes I was aware that vitéz is a Hungarian nobility title but I haven't realized that the v. was for vitéz. (I have thought it was on the German 'von'. Silly me). Anyway, thanks for this clarification.
Best regards
Denis
