    Ided Ribbon Bar - need help with Turkish ribbons

    Recommended Posts

    Of the two "1333" date clasps on the Turkish ribbons, is the one on the left silver or gold/gilt?

    If it's gold, then the medals would appear to be (left to right): Liyakat Medal in gold, Imtiyaz Medal in silver, Turkish War Medal, Lifesaving Medal (solid green ribbon), and then another Liyakat ribbon which would probably be the silver medal.

    Last one was a peacetime Medjidie 3.

    That was my "Plan B" if the swords clasps are both silver. He seems to have abandoned any attempt to mount them in a logical order of precedence. What the heck, it was his ribbon bar - he could mount it any way he wanted, right?

    I found this about Lampe (c. M. Bodeaux):

    DR Chinadenkm?nze f?r K?mpfer - Leutnant zur See - 1901, 05.10.S BRANDENBURG

    DR Kolonialdenkm?nze - Kapit?nleutnant - 1912, 06.13.S PANTHER, Wachoffizier, s.Zt. Oberleutnant zur See

    DR Spange VENEZUELA 1902/03

    Pr. Centenarmedaille - Kadett - 1897, 03.22.S STEIN

    Pr. Dienstauszeichnungskreuz XXV - Kapit?n zur See - 1923, 06.10.R Schiffsstammdivision der Nordsee, Kommandeur

    Pr. Eisernes Kreuz 1914 I. Kl. - Korvettenkapit?n - 1918, 02.14.R GOEBEN, I. Offizier

    Pr. HOH Kreuz der Ritter m. Schwertern - Korvettenkapit?n - 1918, 03.18. GOEBEN, I. Offizier

    Pr. RAO 4. Kl. - Kapit?nleutnant - 1912, 09.19. OSTFRIESLAND, Stab

    But no foreign award for him. Due to the fact he was on SMS Goeben, Turkish orders and medals are possible.
