-reactivated veteran.

-Württemberger

-No Auflage on the ribbon on the württemberg MMM - so it should be the silver grade.

-seems like an NCO who was promoted to Lt./1st Lt in the meantime of war. - in this rank he earned the Friedrich order knight2 X

may be the bavarian MVO4X/ austrian MMC with war decoration.

later he was reactivated - i think he finished war as a captain or major in the etappe (because of the war merit cross 2nd class X and clasp to the IC2)

In my opinion no real chance to ID that guy. May be he served at the italian front (Alpenkorps).

Hi,

why reactivated veteran? He is wearing the golden eagles on his Dienstauszeichnungen, so 25 and 12 years

why Württemberg MMM silver? The ribbon is also for the Militärverdienstorden

Kind regards
Andreas

Andreas, for the WM3, there should be a green-enameled wreath, and for the WgM, there should be a gilt wreath. These Auflagen were sometimes missing, so it could be one of these, but more likely the WsM.

I agree.  Of course it could be the a MVO - but i cannot see the typical 2 little holes for the device.

Reactivated ---> his later service in WW2

Reichswehr = 100.000 Mann Truppe

most of the Berufssoldaten/Offiziere wurden entlassen und

später um 1936 bei Wiedereinführung der Wehrpflicht wieder reaktiviert.

Last ribbon also possibly Romanian Crown knight, type 1932-47.   Seems that this ribbon appears on both Orders.

It is actually the ribbon of the Cross and Medal of Military Virtue. This ribbon was used as a war decoration for both the Order of the Star of Romania and the Order of the Crown.
