    An unusual bar to a Bavarian with Red Cross and fire department long service. The Bavarian fire brigade cross is marked '1000' and the two loose medals were on the bar but didn't belong with the ribbons. Also, note that the Red Cross Decoration is enamelled on both sides and the eagle on the obverse is enamelled into the cross surface.

    How strict where the criteria for getting the Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - did homefront guys who weren't under direct fire receive it too? How far away from the front did you have to be to only get the Kriegsteilnehmer one without swords?

    Nevertheless, could it be that maybe there was a cross without swords on the bar and a pre-owner restored it with a sword one?

    And again, not every soldier did get the EKII (only a third to half - approximately?)
