Just remember-- we NEVER give out the numbers awarded of higher grades Crosses of Liberty because...

what dealers do NOT know, they cannot charge US more for! beer.gif

Wouldn't you know it, but when this bar came up, I scribbled together research and now I can't find it.

Was this George Seymour's? I don't remember it, among so many other treasures.

ahhh yes, just like driving. As with medal bars. Sometimes our "Orderly German Friends" are anything but!  tongue.gif

This is a trifle outside Imperial but I have two different award documents for the '39 EKII to the same sailor from two different headquarters dated within 10 days of each other covering his participation in the Narvik operation. So much for German efficiency... wink.gif I framed 'em! biggrin.gifbeer.gif
