Hello all

I'm new here, coming from WAF ; thanks to PaulR. Good to be here.

I would like to submit you this ribbon bar which came directly attached to a salty Lw four pocket tunic. Are your feelings good or bad about it ?

Thanks

Hi!

It is great to see you here.

From what I can see, I dont find any faults with this ribbon bar(construction wise). I am far from an expert with these so I look forward to seeing the opinions of the more learned!

Hello Paul

it was pinned directly into the fabric of the administrative tunic that you already know.

Are there two holes in the 2nd ribbon? By regulations, that should have either a round green enamel wreath (W?rttemberg Military Merit Order-Knight) or a round gold wreath (Gold Military Merit Medal) to be in front of the 3rd ribbon for W?rttemberg Friedrich Order with Swords.

As it is, the second ribbon with no wreath was for a Silver Military Merit Medal, which would follow the 3rd ribbon.

Since this looks fine to me, it is probably simply a mistake made back then, late 1930s/WW2.

( :unsure: The Germans were not... perfect. :rolleyes: )

In fact I have not the ribbon bar with me today since I'm not at home now ; but I don't think there are holes in the second ribbon. Tomorrow I will go back home and I'll look at it closer.

That's too bad if it features an incoherence ! It's not easy to look at behind the backing, but could it be more instructive by seeing the metal parts ?

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
