Hello everyone, I'm being offered this ribbon bar recently and I thought it is so special that it uses Rettungsmedaille ribbon for the first 3 places, and having a lot of devices on it, the last 3 positions are actually prussian Lifesaving medal, Turkish Lifesaving awards for the 1st and 2nd actions.

Can anybody tell me if the combination could be possible and perhaps a wartime original? all comments are welcome, thanks.

That looks really odd.

I have to agree with Paul.

I have never seen the Hohenzollern Order awarded on the Lifesaving ribbon. The other 3 yes, but not the HHO.

The "hardware" and ribbons look good. I personally cannot speak for all the devices as these are not my strong point.

Best wishes

Matt

Hello Matt, thanks for your comment. I wonder if this is according to wartime regulations?

I was told the bar belonged to Colonel Georg Veit who received 4 different Prussian + 2 Turkish awards for lifesaving.

Can anyone help to find his information? Thanks.
