Hi Gents,

I have this nice all WWI KM ribbon bar in my collection. 

Belonged to an officer in service before 1897.

Prussian prescedence followed by three awards from other states. 

2nd cl iron cr 1914/18

Pr. red eagle order

prussian long service ribbon

1897 kaiser Wil. Commemorative medal.

Bremen Hanseatic Cr.

Würtemberg Friedrich order 2nd cl?

Saxon Albrecht Order?

Black backing cloth with flat beaten out pin on reverse. 

With this combination is there a possibility of an ID?

look forward to comments advice and corrections.

I think you have to look for someone with RAO4, so captain level already pre 1914.

I believe, that it is a Friedrichsorden 1. class with swords.

I am not sure which class the Albrechtsorden is, depends on when he got it, could

be first or second class.

Kind regards

What about that guy. (Claudio) Seems that we have him....

IN the end of 1915 he was Leutnant or Oberleutnant, because of that type of FOIIX

The Albrecht I is unusual for that bar.

I think in the end of war he was captain or major (RAO4) or marine guy./official

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
