I have just bought this , did I made a mistake or ?

 

I read the ribbon bar as EK - MeZ -Old HO - Old Mvk - Colonial Medal - Silesian eagle - EhK - Long Service

 

What do you think ?

Südwestafrika-Denkmünze, not Kolonial-Denkmünze.

You know my motto: Show us the back too! Is it a Feldgrau tabby or nickled?

The sad thing is, we can probably make a list of SWA MEz/OV recipients, but no way to verify WW1 recipients as an NCO. I'm rather surprised not to see Xs on the colonial Oldenburg House cross ribbon.

Here is the ribbon bar at home  ;)

 

It is of the late 1930s design with tabs on the backside , but cant see that it has been messed with .

Pass blacklight test of course and the ribbons looks to be same age.

 

I suppose totally impossible to id but still a  nice bar, here together with my only other OV ribbon bar , discussed in another thread and also impossible to Id....

Hi Christer,

 

It's still a nice ribbon bar traceable or not :) and the two make a very nice little assortment :)

 

Regards

 

Alan
