I bet the owner of this bar became a little upset when he could no longer wear it after the order (dated 29th March 1944) prohibited the further wearing of the Italian-German campaign medal.? sad.gif

John .... interesting bar. This pretty much works in the favor that these Afrika Medals are good. Can you get a reverse pic of the Africa Medal? Is the mm on the left or right when viewed at the reverse? Is the name on the bottom incluse or relief? Probably relief based on this type jumping.gif

Ahhhhhhhhh, Don! THAT is one love.giflove.giflove.gif outfitter's "label"-- the whole thing is actually embroidered onto the one piece backing!!!!

You should bring that one over into Imperial-- it will get quite a reaction in there, kind of lost here in the WW2 stuff!

As for the ban on Italian awards... not a MEDAL bar, but this is what "thrifty" Vizeadmiral Lietzmann did with his "after" ribbon bars after Rome flipped--


He just slapped a black patch right over his Italian Crown Order, device and all, and figured nobody would notice that "Terry Thomas's teeth" gap in his lower row!


This is what his "before" set looks like:

    • 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 .
