    A likely candidate for this bar is H d.R Karl Kellner 5 PB. His awards were:

    BMV4XKr, BLM3J, BLD2, EK1, BrK2, HT, VAs and the Luipold

    Maybe someone else can confirm.

    Thanks for your opinion Paul :). Was he a WWII veteran too? Please can you put in order the awards? That veteran I think was awarded with the EK1 too.

    I don't think he  was in WWII. I am sure he had the EK1.

    Thanks again Paul, maybe in the period between two World Wars? Then can we confirm the list I did with each award? 

    An appreciated friend suggested that It could be at least a Lt. Colonel at the final of the WWI. A veteran proud of his MVK4 combat award and put this ribbon before the St. George of Bavaria
