Hi,

 

Many officers groups have plenty of enamle and sexy awards on the bar that an "other Rank" would never get... so I thought a thread with NCOs bars would be kinda interesting.... Maybe anything up to "Feldwebel" and awards you did not have to be an officer to get? Does not even have to be top line awards, just good solid NCO stuff....

Here is the group for Franz Riethmann of the Bavarian 22 Reserve Infanterie Regiment. The Helmet plate was not his, it is simply for decoration.rieth.thumb.jpg.f4622efe084186c77d0bcb9a

Thanks Chris! 

 

Your group is is also very appealing, especially with that Tapferkeitsmedaille! 

An other Bavarian group I also particularly like....

Great groups guys. Sometimes NCOs bars are better then officers bars.

One if my favorite groups is this one.

VzFw Max Kampf an Saxon NCO who served in DSWA from 1904-06. Awarded with MEZ2, FAM bronce and DM for SWA. On WW1 he joined the air service as an pilot and served with KAGOHL 1 1916-17. He was one of few Saxon pilots who received the St.Heinrich medal. 

The fact that both documents (pilot and commemorative badge) survived makes this group one of my favorites.

Hi Chris,

don't rush. There are a lot of great NCOs group around.

 

My second favorite is the group of:

VzFw Georg Markert enter the war with 5. bayer. Res. Feldartillerie Regiment where he remained until 1917 when he changed to air service. After pilot and single seater training he joined Jasta 76b. He had one victory on 30.05.1918 but died the day after on a dogfight. He was awarded the Ehrenbecher pothum.

Hi Claudio,

indeed a nice bar, but the exception I think?

I usually think of the "Normal" Prussian with EK2, EK1 and then later a Hindenburg.

That is of course a really nice group !!

This is one of my newest NCO bars just in on Friday. I have a couple other ones I like better but this one is still here for pictures. Those of you who know me know that I am not a fan of bars with the 14/18 cross on them but I do make exceptions. Here is one I could not pass as you just don't find them. A three kingdom bar to boot!

Another NCO group with an interesting Württemberg-Weimar Eisenach connection, to see and read more about it, look under Offz. Stv. Luckert on this very forum.

Hi Andreas,

Do you know the criteria for the small golden baden Verdienst medal on Karl Friedrich ribbon ? For service as opposed to bravery? Why such a small number of awards?

Hi Andreas,

Do you know the criteria for the small golden baden Verdienst medal on Karl Friedrich ribbon ? For service as opposed to bravery? Why such a small number of awards?

I´ve sent you a PM.

On this ribbon it is for military merit, for civilian merit the medal was awarded on a yellow ribbon.

Best wishes

Andreas
