The simple WW1 EK2...

Recommended Posts

I am guessing this Landsturm guy was just issued this tunic, it looks store fresh.... notice how the EK is on backwards....

It seems that several soldiers prefered the cross on backwards. Me too,is more beautiful with the oak leaves ;)

Why is it that in so many pictures we see the combination of an EK2 with one or more women?

Would the Iron Cross have had a hidden message? cool.gif

:D :D :D

I take the opportunity to thank everybody for the beautiful pictures. Iron Cross 1914 is my fauvorite collector's item. Nice post :rolleyes:

I read somewhere that many turned their Eks backwards after the king abdicated in

1918 so that the royal initials were not displayed.

A rare cabinet portrait of a non-combattant Iron Cross 1870 from my collection.
