Got this nice photo - i bought it because of the 1870s veteran - he wears the cross with 25 oaks on it. I like reactivated veterans.

unfortunately you cannot see the rest of his decorations.

They have red cross armbands with a eagle stamp (stempel) on it.

Is that the Vaterländerischer Hilfsdienst? The photo was shot in Berlin (R Sennecke Internationaler Illustrations- Verlag)

The medic on the left wears a 2 place medal bar with clasp on it. But which decoration could it be?

Sorry i couldn`t scan it better.
