    Not the big, but the only small ribbon bar with 6 ribbons. When I bought this group, following documents are missing : Hohenzollern, Brunswick and both iron crosses, thant's life angry.gif

    I hope to recreate with new ribbons the medal bar. For that, I have to find the BrH3b (may be one day).

    Hi Christophe,

    whilst the extract above shows his Oberleutnent patent as 18.6.03 Z4z, the 1902 edition also gives his full Leutnant Patent - 27.1.94 F7f. At that time he was living at B?lowstra?e 32 a III, Berlin.

    A more famous reserve officer also commissioned on the 27.1.94 was Walter Bloem, the novelist and author of amongst other works "Vormarsch", translated into English as "The advance from Mons".
