I like this group. The medals for 12 and 4 years of service, together with the Norwegian Order of St. Olav, knight/chevalier with swords (military class), version 1906-1937.

Very nice collection. You're the prove that medal bars are addictive!

This kind of stuff is a great passion of mine, but I had to let my collection go few years back to focus on my major interest.

But it is always nice to see a collection like yours!

Thanks for sharing,

Italian Africa Campaign. This bar came from the veterans family and all of the associated paperwork.

Great bar, Gary. Was the recipient a member of the Luftwaffe? I ask becuase I don't think I've seen the Italo-German Medal awarded to anyone in the Heer or KM.

Hi Brian,

Yes the recipient of the bar was a member of the Luftwaffe; Hauptmann Jacob Schmidt was a flak officer. The bar was part of a grouping which included his soldbuch and other awards. All were split up in an auction. I treid to get as much of the grouping as possible but was only successful on the bar. I did manage to print off the soldbuch from the auction sitre which shows his awards of all the medals on this bar.

Some truely superb bars, folks!

I can add a few of both TR and TR/Imp.... Please excuse the photography as these pictures have been taken over the many years that I've owned these bars, and digital cameras were not always as

good as they are today

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
