That is the silver military service medal from Württemberg awarded duing WWI. From its appearance I would say it is late war. It is rather a common medal.

Hallo Paul, I think you are on the wrong way. Its not the silver military servis medal. I have about 25 such medals.

It appears to be OEK 3009. Per Nimmergut, 166 awarded between 1897 and 1918 (including 3 to women). Original issue pieces should have the engraver's name "K. SCHWENZER" below the bust. The ribbon is black with two yellow stripes (just the opposite of the Bravery Medal).

I hope this helps.

Now, while we are on the subject, below is a civil merit medal on the lifesaving ribbon which Eric Ludvigsen

bought rather shortly before he died. He told me that there were some awards where the civil merit medal

was awarded for lifesaving merit.

Does anyone know anything about this?

The lifesaving medal was awarded since 1897. The time before, when no lifesaving medal existed, the civilmerit medal was awarded for lifesaving, in silver and gold too. After 1897 those persons, who had got a civilmerit medal for lifesaving, could ask for the new ribbon ( § 10 of the statutes). Look for more informations in my book about the lifesaving medals.

Best regards

It is a original issued piece with "K. Schwenzer" below the bust.

    • 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.
