    Afrika Korps Medal Bar! Finally

    Recommended Posts

    Greetings All,

    As a brand new collector of militaria well over 40 years ago my first uniform was a German Army Afrika Korps tunic. So since then the AK has held a special place in my collector's heart. This is my latest acquisition and my first AK medal bar ever! I hope you enjoy seeing it. I do not know if there is an AK thread but if there is please let me know as I would love to see other AK medal bars.

    Happy Hunting,

    A nice DAK bar you have there, Vince.  Going on the design, it looks like the Italo-German Campaign Medal is by Rudolph Souval.

    Due to Italy's withdrawal from the war and subsequent surrender, the wear of all Italian awards was prohibited in orders dated 29th March 1944. Specific mention is made of the Italo-German Campaign Medal so any pre 1944 parade medal bars, or ribbon bars, found with Italo-German Campaign Medals should be considered as scarce to rare....Good find.
