Hello Gentlemen,

Im trying to find a picture and ribbon of a Tiroler Lanesdenkmünze (Tyrol Province Remembrance Medal)

This medal was awarded to all Tiroleans whos served in the First World War and also to those who, between 1915 and 1918 participated in defending the Tirol Province. This bronze gilt medal was instituted on 7 February 1928.

Thx a lot in advance.

Regards

Thanks for the confirmation. I couldn't find another example showing swords, or any site even discussing them on this medal. Seems to make sense, as you would think only those fightling (i/e: combattants) would qualify and the swords would be unnecessary.

Plain ribbon it is.

Tim :cheers:

That was tongue in cheek - the swords on my ribbon appear to have been there since it was made. There are some very loose examples that I have seen with many of the awards post WW1 where those in the Honved or the AH Military added swords to certain awards. Though it did not make much sense to add swords to such an award it was certainly done.

Yes, I didn't know which way your comment slanted but, assumed you felt it was a case where someone added the swords later on, possibly as an embellishment.

I still cannot find many references to the medal that actually discuss the particulars, let alone possible attachments. Thanks for clarifying the point though!

I would have to agree that "mit Schwerter" was not "official" on this medal, more accurately known in German as... "Errinnerungsmedaille für die Landesverteidigung von Tirol 1914-1918"

The medal and ribbon bars I've seen with this medal do not have swords...while the medals that should have swords...do have them; for example, "Erinnerungsmedaille für Weltkriegsteilnehmer 1914 - 1918 mit Schwerter"

Nonetheless, my piece has been "embellished" "mit Schwerter" and they seem to have been there for awhile.

    • 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 .
