The Bavarian one is a little harder to find.... there's several others MUCH harder to find than this! The mecklenburg ones are almost impossible!

Ya mean like this? Another one from Stuttgart.

Hi!

I've got the chance to get one of these bars of mecklenburg, in this case the bar of mecklenburg-schwerin - so here is the picture, additional with a picture of an soldier wearing it.

Hope you like it, too!

To hold this treat alive...

I would like to show you two bavarian. On the right the LS-Bar for the Landwehr, 2nd class. On the left - not often seen - the "normal" LS-Bar, given for 15 years of service, also bavarian.

If anyone could show me his bar, especially the 1st class: you are welcome!

Well, I'll add in here too. I'm surprised no-one commented on Tom's medal bar. Note the edges of the bar... see that raised lip? I've seen an awful lot of pre-1900 bars... but I have only seen that little feature on Bavarian bars.

Here's another example ex-me

To keep this thread alive, I would like to show you my newest piece: Prussia, long service award 3rd class, here with black enamel.

I like all these wonderful enamel made versions you get f.e. from prussia- hope, you too, as any comments are welcome!

regards

P.S.: I forgot to ask WNickel for a more detailed picture of his two pieces for comparison - is it possible, Werner?

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
