I got yesterday two new ribbon bars! Some information would be great.

Especially about the three place one... is the last ribbon Life Saving medal or Westwall medal? Also what period Prussian Red Cross medal would be? Was those awarded as well after 1918?

Its my first ribbon bar with the Olympic award ribbon!!! :jumping:

And two place ribbon bar. What would be the second ribbon? Westwall?

Thanks Heiko and Paul! Even if the first one is bad then I didnt lose much. :catjava: Just hard to get those lessons this way, same time there is nothing to do :blush: .

Heiko, can you please point out for a study reasons what indicate that or is it the combination what dont make sense (missing Hindenburg, etc)?

Thanks! :beer:

prussian red cross was issued well into the weimar period

But for WWI action, wasn't it? However, I don't like that bar - even if it didn't glow under black light (does it?). It glows yet without black light to me...

All I can be certain of

is a certificate I have

for a 3rd class medal

with a date of 1923

I have seen somewhere in a book

that they were issued until 1924

but can't remeber which book

its not in the first 3 I took off the shelf

but the bar doesn't look right to me either

its rather hard for me to imagine

3rd class PRK being of highest precident

when would that be the case?

    • 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.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
