Nice German medal bar without Iron Cross + Finnish medal

Recommended Posts

Two possibilities: he didn't have one, or this is the lower of a two row medal bar set.

I find the 2nd a bit more likely as a WW1 vet who did not even get the EK2 would have had a hard job to end in the Weimar 100,000 men army. Not very likely, but still not impossible...

to continue this topic, may be the theory of the two row bar is realistic, because the ribbon bar contains also two other medals which I can not identify. Pls look at the picture

Hmmmm...that almost screams navy technician/Beamter to me. Note the bar is post 1938- and he has earned his Luftschutz medal by then (probably for teaching at a civil defense school or coordinating duties.

the chap below was owed an Austrian and Bulgarian WW1 medal and is notable only in that he has an HK -not an HKx. I suspect a similar career trajectory though- except your chap was aboard something that got shot at and was in Finland during the War of Liberation.
