Ribbon Bar of Erhard Milch

Recommended Posts

Hello again Gentlemen,

I will make a ribbon bar of Erhard Milch, by visual evidency I count 11 ribbons in this picture of him below. (picture from ABR site)

but I found only 8 that might be in his ribbon bar.

According Axis Biographical Research site the list of decorations of Milch is:

- Ritterkreuz: am 04.05.1940 als Generaloberst und Staatssekret?r im Reichsluftfahrtministerium und Chef der Luftflotte 5

- 1914 EK I : 00.03.1916

- 1914 EK II

- Kgl. Preuss. Flugzeugbeobachter-Abzeichen

- Kgl. Preuss. Flugzeugf?hrer-Abzeichen

- Ehrenkreuz f?r Frontk?mpfer

- Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung IV. bis II Klasse

- Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2. bis 1. Stufe: 20.04.1938

- Gemeinsames Flugzeugf?hrer-und Beobachterabzeichen in Gold mit Brillanten

- Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 13.03.1938

- Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 01.10.1938 mit Spange ?Prager Burg?

- Medaille zur Erinnerung an die Heimkehr des Memellandes

- Spange zum EK I

- Spange zum EK II

- Goldenes Ehrenzeichen der NSDAP

What are those who are lacking in his ribbon bar ?

the ribbon bar I was create is below

Thx in advance for your support.

And this is my reconstruction...

I couldn't find the pics for the crown of the SEHO and the device for the Volkspflege-Ehrenzeichen... ;-)

Hi all. I studied Milch and his awards earlier this year, some of us are unsure if he wore the 25+12yr long service combo or the 18+4yr combo....he definately was not entitled to the 25yr cross as far as i can remember.

Best regards

    • 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 .
