This little bar popped up at the SOS last week.  It's an interesting combo with a Bavarian MVK, Oldenburg FA, Bremen and a couple of Turkish awards.  My best guess would be a Bavarian serving in the Navy who saw some service in the Mediterranean Theater.  Any thoughts?

In the Imperial Navy, even a Bavarian would likely follow Prussian precedence with the EK2 first. I think he is indeed a Bavarian, and the 5th ribbon is not Turkish, but the Prinzregent-Luitpold-Medaille am Bande der Jubiläumsmedaille für die Armee.

Ah, interesting thought. Because Navy was national... I understand.

I had considered the Bavarian Army Jubilee Medal for #5 but, I would expect to see some kind of Long Service award, as well.  Besides, the green stripes look a little thin.  That's why I was leaning toward the Turkish Liyakat.

The 1905 Jubilee might be ruled out because of the lack of a Dienstauszeichnung, but the 1911 Prinzregent-Luitpold Medal on the Jubilee Medal ribbon would fit.

I would not rule out the 5th ribbon being for the Turkish Liakat Medal. It has a red stripe on the edge of the ribbon, which the Bavarian Jubilee Medal does not. It is more clear to be seen on the reverse of the bar.

Thank you for the nice comments, it is a bar that has been in the family for a long time.  

Claudio, I would show the back, but it has been mounted in a display for a number of years.

Hi,

interesting document. I wonder if Hptm. Schön was active in a different (hanseatic) regiment before coming to the RIR25. He got the award during a time in which the regiment had been stationed in Metz for quite some time (from July 1915 onwards to 1917) with no real chance to do something worth being awarded the Hanseatenkreuz for.

Happy Easter,

GreyC

Dear fellow collectors

Last sunday was the Houten militaria fair in the Netherlands and I was able to buy this lovely hanseatic bar. I already framed it so there is no picture of the back most unfortenatly. I especially like the early orange ribbon on the KVK. Normally I'm not really a WW2 collector but I did not mind these two on my bar.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Hello, can you tell me what is your source for Bastian's SW2b? It is not listed in the Ranglisten I own (1914, 1916, 1918 or any other Reichsmarine Ranglisten).

Also, can someone please write the full names of Wedding's awards?

Many thanks!

Korvettenkapitän Bastian's 1924 award of the SW2b is shown in the 1925 Swedish State Calendar .

Thank you very much!

Do you perhaps know which awards do these abbreviations for Karl Wedding represent?

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
