Austrian German Ribbon Bar


Recommended Posts

Here is a ribbon bar from my collection which belonged to an Austrian, who retained ties to Germany through period 1934 - 1938.

This ribbon bar was worn on the German Generals uniform in the film Escape to Victory with Michael Cain and Sylvester Stallone.

A nice little piece. Not one for the film, but was amazed to see one of the pieces from my collection on the big screen!! :o

Haha, well, I picked this piece up from an Austrian dealer about a year ago. Reckon it got seperated from the tunic at some point in time, as lots tend to get broken up.

It was by chance I noticed the bar in the film, and thought it looked familiar. Held it up to the screen and bingo... identical match.

Interesting story though!!
