To a big and standing applause from the audience, our Crown Prince just went on stage during DR's live show 'Sport 2017' to hand out the Award 'Sports Name of the Year 2017'. Crown Prince Frederik participated in clips along the way and handed over the prize to Viktor Axelsen.

Here's a video of HRH Crown Prince Frederik at the Sports Gala 2017 in Herning.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUg8sL9QYkU

Muhler 01-11-2018 08:58 AM

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #02, 2018.
Written by our sports reporter, Ken Richter.

Everyone who could and was something - and quite a few who weren't... - within the world of sports here in DK descended on the town of Herning for the annual Sports Gala.
Most prominent among the guests was Frederik who was to present the award, The Sports Name of the Year. He got a standing ovation from the 7.000 present went he went on stage.
The award was presented in absentia so to speak, because the recipient, the badminton player, Viktor Axelsen, was not present. He attended a tournament in India.
The very likable Viktor Axelsen is a very big name in China where he lives most of the time and as such Frederik met him during Frederik's recent visit to China.
Frederik said about him: "He has a fantastic psyche, which is very much decisive".

In 2017 Danish athletes won 33 gold medals, 53 silver and 52 bronze. But as Frederik said in his stirring speech; it's good for a country the size of DK, but next year, the aim is to get even more. That will be the aim for 2018.

What about his personal aim for 2018?
"That is Royal Run".

Frederik was clearly having a field day among the many athletes, smiling so broadly that his head was in constant danger of splitting in two.

Here is BB for this week:

A delegation from Higashi-Matsushima, Japan, that is currently visiting several organisations in Denmark in connection with the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, visited Crown Prince Frederik at Amalienborg today. He was presented with a bag of rice. Crown Prince Frederik had visited Higashi-Matushima after it had been hit by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011 and had visited the city again last October:

What a beautiful gesture! He received the first rice grown in 2015 and again this year. What a beautiful relationship has been established
"The Crown Prince has a special connection with Higashi-Matushima, who was hit by an earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale in 2011, triggering a tsunami, where more than 1,000 people died. Shortly after the natural disaster, the Crown Prince visited the area to encourage and support the population during their reconstruction period. Most recently, the Crown Prince visited the city in October 2017."

Today Frederik at the Industry Foundation Entrepreneur Award at the Danish Tech Challenge Award Show.

Thank you, Polyesco. :flowers:
I have to grudgingly admit that the navy full dress uniform is better looking than the army version.

I can't help notice the American officer sitting next to Frederik.
Another American officer is sitting behind Frederik. (Seen over his left shoulder.) He's from the cavalry I can tell from his uniform and the yellow cavalry-stripe on his blue trousers.

Here is a better view: https://imageservice.nordjyske.dk/im...max&scale=both
A major-general as far as I can tell, and as such equal in rank to Frederik.
With 27 years of service under his belt.

But I have a few questions perhaps some of our American friends can answer.
What branch under the army does he belong to? Yellow is the color of the cavalry, but when it comes to semi-gods like major-generals I'm uncertain. The double-stripe on his trousers is that for generals or general-staff officers?
Why is he wearing ribbons above his name-tag? Are they for the unit (i.e. his division) or foreign medals?
I can't make out what unit he belongs to.
The crescent shaped insignia under his ribbons to the left on his chest usually means a completed special forces course, like the Ranger Course.

So can anyone please a uniform-nerd like me, and talk us through his uniform? :smile:

From what I can tell he has a special forces, ranger, airborne tab under his name plate, a ranger tab on under his medals, and a master combat parachute pin under his medals as well. also, there is a infantry/marksman patch above his medals. The badge above his name plate is a special operations command pin. He is probably in one of the special forces groups, not sure which one. Not sure about the double stripes on his pants, but dark blue pants (as opposed to a lighter blue), mean a general officer.

The double stripes mean the wearer is a general officer. I have no idea what this is, but I found this site that I hope soothes Muhler's uniform needs:flowers:

I bet you do! :smile:
There seems to be a growing trend to "lump together" various special forces and designate them to various theaters of operation. And depending on the type of mission, the commander can pick what unit is needed. Say Green Berets for being imbedded with local forces, Rangers for reconnaissance or Seals for raids.

That's also what has happened with the Danish special forces. They are now under one overall command directly under the Defense Chief, instead of previously being under two different commands. I.e. the navy and the army. The Frogman Corps and the Jaeger Corps have different skills and different ways of operating. Today they are now supported by the Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol under the Home Guard.
Apart from operating as a unit, individual members or teams are also picked for jobs abroad. Typical VIP escort/bodyguards in less secure countries. (We have sometimes seen them as FET agents protecting members of the DRF. Here being used under the Military Intelligence Service, FET. Royal bodyguards are normally police officers under the Police Intelligence Service, PET.)

General officers are generals. General ranks are (depending on the country):
Brigadier (one star),
major-general (two stars),
lieutenant-general (three stars),
general (four stars and entitled to inspect God himself on the parade grounds every Sunday...
- and at least previously generaloberst (five stars, used Germany among other countries).
In the Soviet Union they at least used to have marshals as well, who were roughly the equivalent to a generaloberst.
Field-Marshal or generalfeldmarschall is an honorary title typically bestowed to generals who win a campaign. Formally speaking they are still generals though.

Staff-officers are officers who, surprise, work in staff or who are entitled to have a staff of their own. That's typically from the rank of major and up.
Officers who have their own staff normally begins with colonels and up.
If a colonel is in the presence of God, he will take the place on the right flank of God, instead of Jesus...

And for good measure I'll mention the sergeant-major. The most senior NCO rank. (or appointment, depending on the country.)
A sergeant-major will see it as his right to march Jesus up and down the square for hours every Sunday if he doesn't salute said sergeant-major properly...

And that's just the army. The senior ranks in the air force and navy view themselves in a similar way.

There is very serious export-money in the food industry!
There is a huge demand for ecological products and now also vegan products that looks minced meat and with the same consistency. - The taste isn't quite the same I think though.
That "meat-product" has literally been torn down from the supermarket shelves!
And there is considerable interest from consumers in the rest of Europe.
The next product that is being presented these days are vegan eggs. They have also become a success. Not as big as the "synthetic meat" though.

Here it is: https://vegetarisk.dk/billigt-vegans...a-vej-i-netto/

Unfortunately not nostalgia, Muhler but rather dismay when reading Hergé. I am a bit surprised that Denmark and your prince are celebrating Belgian colonialism, with its attendant racism.
https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...n-in-the-congo
I didn't know about Silver Arrow, but looking at the ilustration you posted with the heroic cowboy bashing the brains of a First Nations person, I don't think it is something I would contemplate feeling good about after reading. I guess only Donald Duck is left, with uncle Scrooge standing in for the divide between rich and poor that still makes people angry.:bang:

In regards to Silver Arrow, or Silberpfeil in German, the "indianer" (European word for a Native American) is the hero. The magazine is named after him and the magazine was very much on the side of the "indianere". Native Americans have a very good reputation in Europe and have had this reputation for at least the past 60 years. Not least due to magazines like Silver Arrow, but certainly also the brilliant comics written and drawn by Hans Kresse - who were no nonsense in his description of Indianere and their first encounters with the Spaniards in this case.

I assume you think about Tintin in the Congos?
Well, I disagree with you. I actually think it ought be required reading at high school level.

Firstly I find the magazine absolutely hilarious. It is in every possible way politically incorrect in today's world. Tintin is going to Congo, shooting every animal in sight, being a terrible racist in a hopelessly naive and condescending way. The Africans are portrayed in a way that leaves the impression they would drown if they stood outside looking up at the rain.
With one notifiable exception; The Pygmies living in the rain forest are described in a positive way. Something you often see contemporary accounts - the "noble savage" and the admirable ability to survive in very difficult places.
But back to Tintin. Yes, the magazine is racist. Absolutely. But that's how Africans were seen in Europe in the 1930's. That was taught in schools. Colonialism was good, as it elevated the Africans from ignorance and superstition. And people in general believed it, including Herge. In a world where few traveled there were few sources of information, so people believed what they were told and taught.
I think Tintin in the Congos is an important testament to how the world was viewed only 90 years ago and I think it's a mistake to see it with modern eyes.
Interestingly Herge only a couple of years later, wrote another magazine, Tintin and the Blue Lotus, which took place in China, and was very much pro-Chinese and very anti-Japanese (it took place during the Japanese-Chinese war). Here his hero explains about very racist misconceptions in Europe about Chinese and his hero intervenes against racism perpetrated by a Westener.
So was Herge a genuine racist? IMO yes and no. He kept portraying Africans as caricatures and to put it mildly not too bright, but all other races were treated fairly and respectfully.

I'm glad Belgium and Denmark have not followed countries like say Sweden and banned magazines like Tintin in the Congos from the libraries. Because if we put away what we don't like from the past, we end up with a society reminiscent of 1984. A society that is forever suited to what is politically correct at any given time - but where we lose our history for good or worse.
There are other countries where it is now a punishable offense to teach and study parts of the history that is inconvenient.

- Both approaches are just as dangerous and wrong IMO.
The past is the past and often it's unpleasant, but one day we will be the past.
And do we want to be glossed over or erased by future generations?

Mange mange tak Muhler! You have written why we need to TALK about artists like Hergé. Of course his views were racist, but so were the times! Here in Canada, we are now trying to come to terms with Hergé's visions of North American First Nations, that in Europe are still called 'Indianer'; here in our schools we thank First Nations every morning for letting us use the land upon which our nation is built:flowers: I still find Hergé problematic, but that is what great art does and I do hope in Denmark, the discussion will continue:flowers:

Exactly, and as you know, to this day Canada still has problems with the First Nations, as you label them.
The European word "Indianer" is not to be translated with Indian. That would be "Inder" in Germannic/Scandinavian. So it doesn't have the same politically correct connotations.

Many things have been conveniently forgotten, sometimes for centuries. Like the fact that Denmark was a major slave-transporting nation in the 1700's. Danish ships, often mainly manned with Norwegian sailors and funded to a large extent by money from Schleswig & Holstein, sailed to Africa and sold often British manufactured products to coastal tribes in Africa, who profited greatly on selling slaves from inland tribes to the Europeans.

And I also think we should not make the mistake of putting Native Americans on a pedestal as well.
The magnificent and in Europe well-loved and even admired prairie tribes only existed as horse-nations for some 150 years. Before that the Sioux, the Cheyennes the Blackfeet and even the Kiowas portrayed so favorably in Silver Arrow, were mainly forest dwellers.
The Eastern forest tribes were more than happy killing each other. And that to the extent that the population level was dropping, hence the reason why they adopted so many prisoners, including many of the first white settlers. They were also more than happy to kill every beaver in sight in return for European products they couldn't manufacture themselves. (In fact that was one of the reasons why the Cheyennes and Sioux were pushed to edge of the prairie.)
Later on (around 1820-40) some of the tribes acquired black slaves and established (pretty successful) plantations of their own.

As for the Mayas and Aztecs. Extremely advanced civilizations. - Who in periods performed human sacrifices on an industrial scale! And who were in continuous war with neighboring nations.
As for the Incas. - Well, ask their neighbors what they thought about them! The Conquistadors would have had huge problems defeating these civilizations without their local allies, who absolutely hated the Incas and Aztecs. It may even have been impossible without the "help" of diseases.

So it's important IMO to keep in mind that the natives the Europeans encountered all over the world could be genuine bastards too when if it suited them.

Frederik is doing an awful lot of saluting.

Here we see the difference between the army salute and the navy salute: https://2.t.cdn.belga.be/belgaimage:1...def&m=nhmkmiba
In the army (presumably someone from the air force came up with that idea!) your wrist is as close to 90 degrees as it is possible. While the navy salute is more natural for most humans.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #13, 2018.
Written by our fitness reporters the Ulrik Ulriksen and the Ken Richter.

As you know Frederik recently went to Aalborg to visit the special forces there.
Aalborg is located some five hours by car from Copenhagen, depending on the traffic and on the way back, he surprised a number of local school children who were practicing for the Royal Run, which is to take place in connection with Frederik's birthday and where he will take place in several of these runs on the same day.

It was a chilly day (in fact there hasn't even been a hint of spring yet!) when Frederik with his hand buried in his pockets showed up among the children and smiled: "Are you cold? - I can at least promise that the weather will be a little warmer on the day we are going to run."

Frederik offered good advise during the warming up, while mingling with the children: "You must also remember to eat healthy, go to bed early and rise early on the day we are going to run together in Aalborg, because we are going to run as early as as 09.00." (Frederik must have B-type children!)
After half an hour it was time to drive on to Aarhus: "When we see each other again at the Royal Run, please do come over and say hi. I'll remember it's you I trained with".

Later on Frederik surprised around 50 adults who were to start on a practice run in front of Marselisborg. (The park around Marselisborg is open to the public when the DRF is not in residence.)
Here he also helped with the warming up and mingled with people - something he is very good at. He ended the brief visit by saying: "I hope You will have a good day, when we get there."

Frederik is currently in Bangladesh, where he has visited the largest refugee camp in the world. At Cox's Bazar. It is currently home to 900.000 refugees from Myanmar.
Since August last year, 700.000 have crossed the border, in what is a de facto ethnic cleansing taking place in Myanmar.

The situation in the refugee camp is expected to worsen, when the monsoon comes.

Frederik will return to DK today Friday.

Love this quote from Frederik's recent visit
"We know from previous visits that the impact of such visits is great - not only because it gives attention, but because it strengthened the unity of the Red Cross enormously. Right from the proud volunteers in the recycling shop to the outgoing surgeon. The royal house creates a spirit of love because they give recognition. And everyone wants to lift the Red Cross a little more. Thanks to HKH Crown Prince for ever to be at eye level and make a difference."

Denmark and Estonia have historical ties and since the Baltic countries became independent Estonia has been taken under the wings of Denmark, in regards to building up a state administration and negotiation contracts on a state level, which they were naturally inexperienced in - and got cheated on a number of occasions.
It is however some 700 years since DK abandoned the castles and colonies in Estonia.
Those well versed in Danish history may remember that it was in Estonia, in 1219, that Dannebrog fell from the sky.

Today there is a regular presence of Danish fighters, who are conducting air patrols over the Baltic countries. The NATO countries take turn in sending fighters there.
One of the currently greatest fears of the Baltic countries is that Russia will do a Crimea on them. I.e. use the ethnic Russian minorities to take a "slice" of one of more of the Baltic countries. The salami method you now. As such a number of NATO countries have also stationed army units there, more or less on a permanent basis there.
They are to be brutal, living shields.

"Separatists" and anonymous "volunteers" may have few qualms about crossing the border and engaging Baltic soldiers, but inflicting casualties on soldiers from other countries is a very dangerous step! As such it's hoped that the presence of foreign troops will serve as a deterrent. That the troops are trained, equipped and under orders to genuinely fight back, if challenged only make the stakes higher.
There is no way NATO can and will accept say 100 casualties from fighting Russian insurgents, without reacting militarily and in force.

On the other hand, Russia no longer have a buffer zone between itself and NATO. Having combat troops from NATO stationed right at their border in Poland and the Baltic in particular tends to make them jumpy, considering Russia's history of being invaded.

Denmark, more or less permanently, now have a mechanized company stationed in Estonia alongside a British battalion.

He sure did, Iceflower, he sure did.

But did you notice that he's been injured in the face - again!
https://www.bt.dk/royale/kronprins-f...afsloerede-ham

On his right temple. (Remember Mary is right-handed, so she's in the clear. :tongue:)

The court informs us that his latest injury was acquired when he and his family went on skiing holiday recently. But did not disclose any further details.

You can study his injury better here: https://bt.bmcdn.dk/media/cache/reso.../20648955-.jpg

Perhaps it happened when he was putting on clothes? Being temporary blinded from pulling a turtleneck sweater over his head, he lost his sense of balance and knocked his head against something. Or perhaps he got stuck in the turtleneck and had to be pried free with tongs?

Or judging from the chapter in the portrait book about him, that I have just finished translating, perhaps he - once again - sat naked on an inflatable mattress while being dragged through a pool of mud by a tractor. :biggrin:
That chapter will be uploaded in a day or two.

I've visited Turku. It's a lovely place. And like everywhere in Finland, once you leave the towns and turn down the first road, you can't help bumping into saunas all over the place! And if you don't watch out, hordes of people emerging from the saunas will run you down on their way to the nearest lake! All of them of course in their birthday suits.

This should delight Nordic. ;)

""It means a lot for us to be invited here. It is a very nice gesture of Australia. That the Crown Prince comes is a cannon support for us. The Crown Prince is very well-liked among veterans, and that means a lot to us that he is in, says Morten Bach, one of the participants in the Danish team."

It would indeed be nice for M&F to attend the Invictus Games. And perhaps they will.
I checked the dates.

The autumn holiday here in DK is always in week 42. The Invictus games takes place in week 43.
It is IMO possible for M&F to go to Australia in week 42, stay for the first couple of days of the Invicturs Games, before they all, or at least Mary and the children, will return to DK. - That means the children will start in school, say Thursday in week 43. That is acceptable.
I'm sure the presence if the entire family will be very much appreciated by the Danish contestants, and hopefully the Australians as well.

Every year, the Council of Europe's Foreign Ministers meet for a meeting of the Committee of Ministers. This year's meeting will take place on 17-18 May at Kronborg Palace, which marks the end of the Danish Presidency of the Committee of Ministers. Denmark took over the presidency of the Council of Europe's Committee of Ministers from the Czech Republic on 15 November 2017 and handed it to Croatia on 18 May 2018

Thank you, Polyesco. :flowers:

The bearded, less than intellectual looking man, who in the photos is seen sticking as close to Frederik as possible (and Mary and other members of the DRF, when he can get away with it!) is our Foreign Minister, Anders Samuelsen.
He is one of the most qualified foreign ministers we've ever had, according to himself... I'm serious, and so was he!

So fellow TRF members would you like a slightly used foreign minister, with a backbone like a flu-stricken earthworm? Look no further. :biggrin:
You can have him for free. We'll even pay his one-way ticket to any destination you like. - Please!

------------------

The Aussie members gonna love this article!

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #20, 2018.
Written by our sports reporter Marianne Singer.

As you know the Invictus Games are coming up and this year they are going to take place in Australia.
In that context Frederik met the Danish participants at a reception at the residence of the Australian ambassador to Denmark, Mary Ellen Miller.

As you also know Frederik has great people skills and a number of the Danish veterans are about the age of Frederik, so they quickly talked about old days making the mood jolly.
One of the veterans, Jacob Udsen, who served in Croatia and whom I actually recognize from my own time there. Not in the same company though. It's a small world! He is suffering from PTSD and he said about Frederik: "It really means a lot that he's here. - We had a good conversation. We talked about football clubs, we belonged to when we were young and which played against each other. I played for Humlebæk (a Copenhagener soccer club) and he played for Fredensborg."
About being a part of the Invictus Games Jacob Udsen said: "It provides a relief. You are not alone. The accept there is between veterans is totally fantastic."

Frederik said to the veterans in a speech: "The thing that you are now going Down Under is pretty spectacular. You'll meet fierce competition from your mates, especially the Australian ones. They are good company, but they fight!
It'll be an adventure going down there. Australia is far away, but it's fantastic. You'll be received like brothers and sisters in that country with which we now also has a lot in common with."

Harry is very much credited in this article for his work for starting the Invictus Games.

----------------

There is also a long, and most well-illustrated interview with Frederik in this weeks issue of BB. I'll scan and summarize that interview separately. There is no rush and there are plenty of other events to occupy my these days!

Here you can feats your eyes on this week issue of BB #20, 2018:

Thank you Polyesco for all the info and pictures here. That last picture you posted with Frederik and that young man, good gosh, Frederik looks like a young man of 20 again.....what is his secret ....:lol::lol:
I was looking at all the people in the pictures around Frederik and he with them, everyone had such a wonderful rapport with Frederik and he with them. That shows how well liked he is in Denmark and how much the people admire him and the same goes for Mary. They really do make a great team for the country .......:smile:
