3rd Reich Medal bars... Show Yours!

Recommended Posts

Everyone, beautiful bars. Most people dont like the Westwall medal, but I really like what it adds to a medal bar. It is not the typical red, white, and black...

I agree and that's one of the reasons it's nice to get bars with Westwall medals or from other countries. I particularly like the Condor Legion bars. Here's an interesting one medal, Westwall bar with a tailor label; quite unusual to find.

Those are really nice. How many nations do you collect?

If you're asking me, I'm fairly eclectic when it comes to military bling. : ) Korean War (all nations), Germany up to '45, some Japan if it looks good and is truly original, British WWI & POW, Vietnam (Australia & New Zealand) and some other odds and ends that just strike my fancy. Used to focus on one British Yeomanry regiment, but after a while, it was nice to branch out. Oh, I also have a fair collection of St. Helene medals with original brevets.

Considering the order the medal bar is from 1939/40,because Hindemburg cross is before KVK2,so the third regulation of 1939 is what we are considering here.

it is a probably an offizer of the police with lot of years in service who fought in the ww1 and who was condecorated with the kvk2 at the end of 1939 or begining of 1940.

Hope you like it!!!

Condor Legion groups are so colorful. The White Military Merit is quite unusual to find mounted on a bar.

Indeed. Seeing that the white cross was issued to non-combatants (red cross for combatants) the percent of elements such as medical, religious etc would have been very low in the "Legion"

Ayz....101and the other are actually Bulgarian.

OOps you're right. Thanks!!!

Hello to everyone,

I am not sure this bar fits into this category. It is my understanding that this Order of the White Elephant was issued until 1940. I would appreciate any information anyone has.



Love this bar. Congrats to you. Wish I could help, but alas....

    • 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.
