Very nice ribbon bar. I believe this one came with a name when last sold.;)

Apologies for digging up an absolutely archaic post, but through a peculiar combination of familial chaos and changing email addresses, notification of your reply slipped under my radar screen... If I had the info, I've managed to lose it in the shuffle. Do you know any more?

Very interesting! The last ribbon should be the Messina 1908 earthquake medal.

I haven't seen this one before, but it must have been an early, pre-WW1 bar to Marine Oberstabs-Ingenieur Albert Trenkler, who was on SMS Hertha in 1908.

More information and his other, post-WW1 bars here:

Awesome! Thank you!

If I'm reading this right, he was on the Hertha at the same time as Dönitz?

At least we seem to have narrowed it down to an Ingenieur... lol
