    I purchased this for the DSWA colonial officers uniform posted elsewhere, but now I realize this man would have been at least a Hauptmann pre war. This is probably an early WW1 bar, any chance of an ID? The ribbons are as follows:


    RAO (4th?)

    PKO (4th?)

    25 year LS

    DSWA sevice

    Kaiser Wilhelm centenary

    Probably Red Eagle 4 and Crown 3 which makes this a standard Prussian Oberstleutnant's combination. The lone SWA Medal ribbon was probably for a steel and not a combatant bronze medal because there is no Colonial Order "X."

    I'd say this is a classic circa 1916 bar, when this Pure Prussian was probably an Oberst...

    which means he retired as a Generalmajor. :beer:
