Medal bars on display at the Military Museum in Salzburg Castle

Early in 2009, 2 Jan to be exact, I spent a few days in Salzburg. While there I visited the Salzburg castle. On the top floor they have a small but excellent museum. There is a very good display of uniforms associated with the fighting on the Italian Front plus an excellent display of medals. Also on display is a number of medal and ribbon bars from individuals whoi presumably have given them to the museum. While some span the time from the Austro-Hungarian Empire through WWII and beyond I'll only post those that are of major interest to the A-H Empire. There may be one post war medal included, as is the case with a lot of them, but I didn'y want to leave out these bars because of that. The photography isn't the greatest as there was the usual problems whith glass and lighting reflections. I hope that you find these of interest.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem

    • I recall I did the same on hot days at Old Fort York back in 1973-74 - wool uniforms, and at 90F they would let you take your backpack off.   Michael
