    A small Civil War group

    There is nothing unusual about the Spanish Civil War medal or Sudetenland medal, or indeed the back of the ribbon bar, so I won't bother posting pictures.

    I suppose we can only guess at the career: a medic in the First World War who had a break from the Armed Forces before joining the Luftwaffe probably in the early 1930s, which only gave him enough service time to qualify for the 4th class Long Service Award. Then he went off and did something in Spain that was enough to qualify for the Civil War medal, although he must have been back in Germany to do something in 1938 that qualified him for the Sudetenland medal. The ribbon bar suggests that he was still in some sort of uniform in 1939.

    As I said, a completely anonymous group, but I like it very much. And I have learned a bit about Imperial Awards from it too - from here: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=11806
