It really is a beautiful medal bar. Also note the quality of the MVK. The originals all have a real golden 
front-medallion. The only manufacturers were Leser and Hemmerle.

Very nice indeed!!! Do you know who the recipient was?

No, but I managed o narrow it down to the unit as there was only one Bavarian unit in the Ostsee-Division. Perhaps more your taste as it was the Kgl. Bayerische Gebirgs-Artillerie-Abteilung Nr. 2, which had previously a part of the Alpenkorps before being transferred to the Ostsee-Division which fought in Finland.

There were three Bavarian units in the Ostsee-Division.

• bayer. Kraftwagen-Maschinengewehr-Kompanie, zugeteilt dem Radfahr-Bataillon Nr. 5
• bayer. Feldlazarett Nr. 23
• bayer. Gebirgs-Artillerie-Abteilung Nr. 2 (bayer. Gebirgs-Kanonen-Batterie Nr. 7, bayer. Gebirgs-Kanonen-Batterie Nr. 12, bayer. Gebirgs-Batterie Nr. 8 (H))

Good to know, didn't know about these. Anyways, the Tirol connection does in my opinion confirm it the the Gebrigs-Artillerie-Abteiling 2 which was a former unit of the Alpenkorps which fought in Tirol.

Thanks

@ Chris: If I understand you correctly with my bad English, do you want to know dates of the postwar 
association of the Order of the Bavarian Medal for Bravery? (The medal for the bravery was 
not a order, but they called themselves after the war ....)

I have estates where the TM was not mounted on the medal bar at all. These medal bars are always made after 1918
Unfortunately, I have almost no pictures that I can publish.
 Andreas (Spolei) certainly has several of them.
