To revive this old topic, this popped up at the SOS this weekend:

Indeed I did. It is now residing in my gun safe.

Gentlemen, I can tell you that you have to see this bar (in person) to really appreciate it. Congratulations Beau! :cheers:

Difficult indeed. I stupidly purged most of my noncombatant stuff in the mid-1990s when I went over to Soviet... and have not been able to find anything to replace The Lost Goodies.

This Old Style looks like WW1,

but actually belonged to Dr. Kohlstock, an African livestock diseases specialist who died of something nasty in China in 1901.

The "white-black" "EK" here was actually a Prussian Crown Order 4X from the 1890s. This was his assignment to the Schutztruppen Colonial Main Office in 1899:

And one of my few pre-1930s WW1 noncombatant bars is actually a mxture-- "black-white" EK

I think this is it for me. Rick L helped me on this one. I like it because it is a two war bar without a Hindenburg Cross. I seem to not like those anymore due to their connection with the TR.

    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
