Hi guys,

well,i just picked up my first 1957 postwar ribbon bar.

This one includes the EKI,EKII and the Hilfskreuzer award.

I have been looking for one of these ribbon bars with the HK award for some time.

I really like this one and the detail on these 57 miniatures is very fine.

Regards,Martin.

Thanks guys.

This is not a common trio of awards for a HK crewman.

For example,the HK THOR on it's 1st cruise had a compliment of 326 men.
The EKII was awarded to 289 crewmen,but only 43 received the EKI and they were mostly Officers and NCO's.

Regards,Martin.
