It did seem like there was something of a "wave" of non-combatant EK bars floating around out there for a while, and the smaller of the two was one that I was able to scoop up during that odd period.

Difficult indeed. I stupidly purged most of my noncombatant stuff in the mid-1990s when I went over to Soviet... and have not been able to find anything to replace The Lost Goodies.

This Old Style looks like WW1,

[attachmentid=4792]

[attachmentid=4793]

but actually belonged to Dr. Kohlstock, an African livestock diseases specialist who died of something nasty in China in 1901.

The "white-black" "EK" here was actually a Prussian Crown Order 4X from the 1890s. This was his assignment to the Schutztruppen Colonial Main Office in 1899:

And one of my few pre-1930s WW1 noncombatant bars is actually a mxture-- "black-white" EK

[attachmentid=4794]

[attachmentid=4795]

BUT Anhalt Friedrich Cross ribbon with white, not pink, edges for noncombatants:

What WOULD we do without my Evil twin's sisnister global network of cherry ribbon bar pickers? wub.gif

Here is a ribbon bar I picked up at a local show. I am not sure how many NC things I do have.

I think this is it for me. Rick L helped me on this one. I like it because it is a two war bar without a Hindenburg Cross. I seem to not like those anymore due to their connection with the TR.
