A very nice ribbon bar combo.

The holes are most likely for Wehrmacht Long Service devices rather than any other kind of long service imo....hard to say whether Heer or Luftwaffe.

Best wishes


I agree. Offhand, I can't think of any other scenarios where you would have two long service ribbons on a bar, whereupon both would have had a device. (I can think of some scenarios where one might have a device, and the other not.)

I'd think even if the swords are gold, he had more likely a knight's cross 2nd class, as the bar totally looks like a WW1 junior officer's.

Two blue ribbons with (missing) devices are most likely a Wehrmacht duo - be it Army, Navy or Luftwaffe. Other scenarios might be one Wehrmacht award with a Treudienst-Ehrenzeichen, if he switched between military and civil state service.

    • 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 .
