    Reichswehr photos with nice medal-bars

    Recommended Posts

    Got these two Reichswehr photos yesterday. Thought I show them here, cause there are some nice medal bars to see and the photos are of excellent quality.

    These are the two photos, note that some people appear on both photos but on other places.

    :Cat-Scratch: This is the FIRST photo I have ever seen with serving members of the ReichsHEER wearing 1920s self-purchased "vanity" veterans awards. The ReichsMARINE seems to have had no ban on them, but I have always thought that the army did, because I have NEVER before seen these privately purchased awards worn in army uniform this way! :beer:
