    Only An Austrian WW1 Veteran 01


    We very often find German sized ribbon bars that must obviously have dated after the 1938 Anschluss, yet have no Third Reich awards on them. See the numerous examples in the Third Reich section of the main article text.

    So here we see:

    a partially obscured Austrian WW1 bravery award
    another with swords
    another without swords (most likely a Bravery Medal)
    another (probably) Bravery Medal
    Karl Wound Medal 1918 for 1 wound
    Karl 1917 Troop Cross for frontline sevrice
    a self-awarded 1873 general issue war medal(veterans often assumed they were "entitled" to this for World War service before 1917-- they were NOT)

    Note the NSDAP Gold Party Badge. :rolleyes:
