My two latest ones. The first one is an interesting, understatement style with EK2, Bavaria, Sachsen-Meiningen and Lippe. I would guess a junior officer's bar.

Here's the second one, which I got from Stogie. Can't prove it, but my feeling is that this is also an officer's bar. No long service, and golden Hindenburg swords. The combination (Bremen and Mecklenburg) would suggest Navy (only possibility: char. KorvKap (1919) Brunswig -> Rick, what became of him?), but the BACK looks rather like army.

Now of course I cannot rule out that there might be (E)-officers with this combination who were recalled in 1935. But judging from the Reichsheer, the combination is rare. Actually, there is only one who qualifies, and it would really be nice if it were him:

Hans-Adolf von Arenstorff (1895-1952)

Entered army 8.08.1914, Leutnant 8.05.1915 and ended the war with that rank. Remained in RH service, reached Major 1.12.1935, Oberstleutnant 1.01.1939, Oberst 1.11.1941, and ultimately made Generalmajor 1.01.1943 as Brigade Commander in - Stalingrad (!). Captured there, he died in Soviet captivity. DKiG on 14.01.1942.

It could have been his bar ca. 1935/1936, before the new LS awards came out. An early photo of v. Arenstorff would be much appreciated!
