Just by chance I got this pure noncombattant Mecklenburg bar:

1.) Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse am Nichtkämpferband

2.) Militär-Verdienstkreuz Mecklenburg-Schwerin 1914 am Nichtkämpferband

3.) Sachsen Kriegsverdienstkreuz

4.) Ritterkreuz des Hausordens der Wendischen Krone Mecklenburg-Schwerin

5.) Gedächtnismedaille Großherzog Friedrich Franz III. 1897 Mecklenburg-Schwerin

No doubt the person who owned this bar was a Mecklenburg-Schwerin subject. I try to find suspects in the Großherzoglich Mecklenburg-Schwerinschen Staatskalender of 1916. The best matching person is a civil servant, Ernst von Blücher (1854-1930). He is registered in the 1916 Staatskalender with the three Mecklenburg decorations, but no others. Unfortunately I have no later edition of the Staatskalender to search for other suspects and to look for Blüchers possibly later awards.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards, Komtur.

... Have you black lighted the ribbons. To me they look very new and the same for the stitching on the reverse? ...

I have not, because the ribbons and the stitching are fine. Having done it just now, there were no glowing at all.

Regards, Komtur.

    • 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.
