    A Very interesting W?rttemberg Medal Bar

    Recommended Posts

    When I first received the photos of this bar from a contact in Germany I could not for the life of me figure out why they mounted the Baden Merit Medal like this..... when it showed up, neatly behind the Silver Bravery Medal is a pair of stitches to keep the Baden Medal from sliding around. Of additional interest is the W?rttemberg Fire Service Medal for 25 Years Long Service awarded 1919-20 ONLY!!!!! Just one of the spiifiest frack bars I've ever found!

    The Baden connection would seem to indicate an Infantry Regiment 126 veteran.

    The black wartime+ issue IX Years Medal shows this was probably a man who enlisted in 1915, getting this on discharge as a double time regular.

    And the Weimar-into-Third-Reich W?rttemberg 25 Years Fire Service Medal (very very nice BTW) was probably given just before the Hindenburg Cross came out-- so this guy had been a volunteer fireman even before signing on for the army during the war.

    Such a nice bar (weird suspebsion) but no Hindeburg Cross.... ??? DIED/KILLED circa 1934? We'll never know, now. :(
