  1. Could this guy have been one of the recipients of this livesaving medal (since there are no other ww1 medals on this bar)? Regards. Peter
  2. Another bar that came with that mega stretched out ribbon bar. Note the S hilt swords. I think these were added later since the prongs of these swords do not go all the way through. I'm going to leave these where these are though because I don't want to run the risk of tearing something. Any thoughts on the last 2 ribbons? Baden jubilee medal and Sweden order of the sword? Thanks. Peter
  3. Dear forum members, Some time ago I picked up this mega long ribbon bar - 18 ribbons in one row. The bar has actually retained its shape when it came of the uniform - it's still bend. What are your thoughts on this one? Also, I rarely see these narrow ribbons. Does anyone know if there were any rules or regulations concerning the use of these or are these just a personal preference of the wearer? Thanks. Peter
  4. Hi Nicolas, I was fortunate enough to be able to pick these up but haven't come around to posting them. I will post better pictures of them in different threads. Regards. Peter
  5. Ah, many thanks that explains why I could not match the medals
  6. Dear forum members, These came in today after a long wait; a postcard, a ribbon bar and a photo (copy) of the bar in wear. The name that came with these is Alfred Jacobi. This name is also on the postcard addressed to him. The postcard has the handwriting of one Hugo Sperrle, at that time (49) living in Thaining. I can't find a complete and/or matching list of Jacobi's medals for comparison. Does anyone have this information? Thanks. Peter.
  7. Hi all, thanks for all the info. Some good points have been put forward. It's an interesting combo. The Oldenburg cross makes me think it's a naval officer, but the Westwall medal and the field-grey backing makes me think it is Heer... Do we know of any full lists of names for the 2nd class 1918 and/or the 2nd and higher classes for the 41+ recipients? On a different note, does anyone have a spare device for a ribbon bar for a 3rd or 4th class cross? This bar came without.... Regards. Peter
  8. Hi all, Could the wearer of this unnamed ribbon bar have been one of those 2nd class 1918 ricipients? Regards. Peter
  9. Dear all,, These 3 bars came in today. I filed these under Schwarzburg since that's what they have in common. Any thoughts on these and possibilities for ID? Thanks in advance Regards, Peter
  10. Nope - sorry - maybe for trade if it can be ID'd
  11. Hi Paul, Thanks for the thumbs up There's not much to go on for identification so it's good to hear this has a chance of being identified
  12. Hi all, This ribbon bar came in yesterday. Any thoughts on identification? All help appreciated Regards. Peter
  13. Thanks for the info This list states a Landesorden and no social welfare medal Can anyone confirm he also received a social welfare medal? Can anyone confirm he received a landesorden (and which one) and would it have been logical to wear it or not wear it?
  14. Hi all, I've been looking for some time now for a name, been through quite a list of police personnel. I might have a possible match, but it could also be a very long shot.... I found this photo of Gerret Korsemann. Can anyone tell what the awards of Korsemann are and if they are a unique combination? Thanks Peter
  15. Hi all, These ones came in a few days ago. They look like unworn Ostvolk Generalmajor shoulder boards. Any thoughts on these? Regards. Peter
