Hello Stefan.

Thanks for showing this concerning Gen.d.Inf. L. Wolf. Very interesting to because of his command of 22.Inf.Div. later ( # 695-697) in which a relative served throughout the war. Anyone who has seen photos of him after the severe wound he suffered, must be wondering how he survived.

Hi everybody,

Here is one new ribbon bar. It belonged to Major a. D. Fritz Renner from I.R. Nr. 107.

A lucky one for me. Was it usual to have a HHOX ribbon with no sword device?

​Nice photo, Deruelle. What is the medal, please, and why is he wearing the badge hanging from a bow rather than a normal medal ribbon? I would normally associate bows with medals awarded to women.

I´m sure these medals and the way he´s wearing it are some sort of Krieger-Vereins-Abzeichen, maybe "Verein Jäger und Schützen". Their "Vereinsuniform" were nearly identical to their military counterpart.

​Thank you, Stefan. So not 'official' at all.
