As you can see the only difference is that this guy has added his 25 year service medal onto the end of his bar!

This bar belonged to Peter Puff, a Vizefeldwebel in the Schutztruppe in German South West Africa.

He must have been held prisoner for the duration as his MVK certificate is dated the 19th of January 1920.

All the best Pete.

Both bars , the ribbon bar and the medal bar , are no unique combinations.... only with a Name from Awards docs or something like that you can be 100% safe who you have there.....on the ribbon bar where you have no more "help" it can be everything , a MVK 3. class for exemple...what DA the blue ribbon is for - can be 9y , 12y, 15y or maybe Landwehr...who knows

 

BUT :catjava:

 

what makes me feel that you have really two bars of ONE guy is the Point that on his original medal bar (bevor the Addition of the 25y ca. 1938) he has the DSWA-medal mounted on last Position on exact  the same place as on the ribbon bar although it was a combattant Award that normally should place on Position 2 or 3 !!! The 25cross is added to the existing bar so both the medal and the ribbon bar with the matching Awards were made after getting the Hindy ca. 1935 with the same order of Awards.

Just a guess....but I would give you two a :beer:

    • 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.
    • "(...) 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 .
