Hi,

 

Many officers groups have plenty of enamle and sexy awards on the bar that an "other Rank" would never get... so I thought a thread with NCOs bars would be kinda interesting.... Maybe anything up to "Feldwebel" and awards you did not have to be an officer to get? Does not even have to be top line awards, just good solid NCO stuff....

Here is the group for Franz Riethmann of the Bavarian 22 Reserve Infanterie Regiment. The Helmet plate was not his, it is simply for decoration.rieth.thumb.jpg.f4622efe084186c77d0bcb9a

Thanks Chris! 

 

Your group is is also very appealing, especially with that Tapferkeitsmedaille! 

An other Bavarian group I also particularly like....

Great groups guys. Sometimes NCOs bars are better then officers bars.

One if my favorite groups is this one.

VzFw Max Kampf an Saxon NCO who served in DSWA from 1904-06. Awarded with MEZ2, FAM bronce and DM for SWA. On WW1 he joined the air service as an pilot and served with KAGOHL 1 1916-17. He was one of few Saxon pilots who received the St.Heinrich medal. 

The fact that both documents (pilot and commemorative badge) survived makes this group one of my favorites.

Hi Chris,

don't rush. There are a lot of great NCOs group around.

 

My second favorite is the group of:

VzFw Georg Markert enter the war with 5. bayer. Res. Feldartillerie Regiment where he remained until 1917 when he changed to air service. After pilot and single seater training he joined Jasta 76b. He had one victory on 30.05.1918 but died the day after on a dogfight. He was awarded the Ehrenbecher pothum.

This is one of my newest NCO bars just in on Friday. I have a couple other ones I like better but this one is still here for pictures. Those of you who know me know that I am not a fan of bars with the 14/18 cross on them but I do make exceptions. Here is one I could not pass as you just don't find them. A three kingdom bar to boot!

Hi Andreas,

Do you know the criteria for the small golden baden Verdienst medal on Karl Friedrich ribbon ? For service as opposed to bravery? Why such a small number of awards?

I´ve sent you a PM.

On this ribbon it is for military merit, for civilian merit the medal was awarded on a yellow ribbon.

Best wishes

Andreas

    • 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.
