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:

Dear ccj

The third award is a bavarian Luitpoldkreuz for 40 years of public service, the fifth award is a Sicherheitsdienst-auszeichnung for 35 years of service in the police (Gendarmerie). It is a very nice bar if I may say so.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Yes, the Bathildis medal is really not often seen on medal bars.

Sometimes you can find NC bars with Oldenburg FAK on combatant ribbon (means mixed bars) - or on non-combatant ribbon.

I have both of them.

Thanks. The reason I ask is I think people are trying to figure out some medals which have the clover-like mark on them, specifically some Hamburg Hansa Crosses. I have a Naval Flyer's Commemorative which also has this mark.

Yes they did. 

A friend send me this photo of an Award Dokument to a female nurse.

The coolest HK citation I've seen.  Thank you for sharing it.  I have not seen any others.  Have I just been unlucky or are they that rare?

Komtur-  This is seriously a pinnacle nurse's set.  Thank you!

In my opinion all female citations are fairly rare. Or i just don't have luck to find them.

Bars with Sicherheitsdienstauszeichung are definitely rare.

I am still looking for one with IC non combatant.

Nice pic - i like those nurse pics. They are definitely not so easy to find.

A little mystery:

Who am I ? 

Which ribbon do I wear?

I know decorations (turkish war medal... ) which does have those Kleeblatt mark with J H W in it.

Nice minis.

PS: The shown person on my pic is Schwester (Frl.) Lonny H. von Versen with her ribbon of the IC.

One of a handfull female recipients of the IC.

The pic was taken in St. Mihiel 1915. (written on the backside)

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • 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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
