I got this medal bar last weekend and it would be great to find out who was the winner was, please help me. I have no idea who might have been the person. Made by Godet, the Prussian Red Eagle Order and the Crown Order marked "W" for juweller Wagner.

Many thanks!

That's a :love::love: to some sort of Oberregierungsrat type of person who was BARELY in military service during the first war and surely must have been retired by the 1930s.

I can never remember what rank got which class of the Japanese Orders, but that Rising Sun must have been from before 1914, which SHOULD help identifying him.

The only way to find a civilian like this will be to hunt through the Reichs AND Prussian Court & State Handbooks from BOTH before 1914 and BOTH of the 1918 issues, just to make sure other awards were NOT added during the war if there are several possible wearers before the war. There is no short cut or easy way to do this. It will require going through thousands and thousands of pages 1 by 1 by 1 by 1....

so far we have been working ENTIRELY on identifying MILITARY groups.

We need another group of Research Gnomes who can and will ONLY do civilians!

A group like this USED to be "impossible." Now... SOME DAY it will be possible. :beer:
