Oak leaf for Iron Cross 2nd Class 1870


Recommended Posts

My oakleaves not sure which variant

Variant No 10, until now I found this one on 12 different order bars. It is also shown in a catalogue of AWS from 1908. So it is quite sure an old and original one version of the Oak leaves.

Regards, Komtur.

Something you might find interesting.

Here is a scan of a ribbon bar from a Paul Küst catalog page.

I believe that this dates to before 1914 as the only iron crosses

shown are 1870s.

Paul Kust made miniature awards, button devices, frack chains,campaign bars

and possibly the 25 year oak leaves. I was hoping you might be able to match

the poor detailed oak leaf drawing to one of your Oaks versions.

Just for reference, hear is the full sized page that shows his offerings.

I was trying, but unfortunately not. But many thanks for your input :beer:

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
