Swords: Silver WW1 Bavarian

Rick Research

Real silver swords again, on the war merit aka "Beamtenband" of the Military Merit Order 4th class. Bavaria distingusihed between frontline bravery and rear area or near-front war merit by changing the ribbons and keeping the same decorations.

Notice that these swords are the generic pattern, not the Bavarian "bound" style. This bar is attributable to a Prussian Feldpost official, who mounted his combatant EK2 and Saxon Albert Order with Swords ahead of this Order. Not that that native/non-native seems to have affected whether the "bound" style of swords was worn or not. Being in stock at the effects outfitters seems to have been more important.
