As far as I know my Ribbon Bar Article has NOT been removed as I instructed from THAT place, so all that should still be available for those willing to go there, as I am not.

The change to little ones came about 1915-16 and those were standardized through mass production. Earlier ones tend to have had a bit more leeway for height and width, being individually made, and only going by the limitations of full size ribbons.

It still came down to individual taste and preference.


Pour le Merite winner Siegfried von la Chevallerie (1860-1950--he'd be adding oakleaves in a few months) is already Over The Hill stylewise in 1918. A junior officer wearing such a "billboard" in the front lines would be very soon dead-- as the 1914 survivors learned.
