Gebirgsjäger Feldwebel with foreign medal


Recommended Posts

Grüß Gott Kameraden,

Here's a recent Gebirgsjäger portrait addition to my collection of a battle tested Feldwebel, but I have not been able to identify the medal above his Iron Cross 1st Class.  Someone on another forum suggested that it might be the Romanian Virtute Militara.  Can anyone ID it and was this medal awarded to German troops?  Thanks in advance.

Hello. Could be the Medalia Virtutea Militara . it was the highest award for Romanian NCOs and Soldiers. respect if it was awarded to Germans allies its the most probable. the only strange thing about the photo is that the Feldwebel carries his decoration without the ribbon ,

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • 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.
