Ribbon Bar with possible Photographic Evidence

Recommended Posts

Dear members,

A while ago I purchased a little 4-Placer ribbon bar with awards from Bavaria and Baden. Due to many different possibilities of the ribbons, an exact combination could not be made out.

Any opinions regarding this bar are greatly appreciated.

Best regards

Nice Picture, but I do not see any medal from Baden. The second medal is also from Bavaria.

Regards Seeheld

OK. I'm confused.  The first ribbon is an Iron Cross. The second is something from Baden with a crown on it. The third is a military merit order or cross from Bavaria. And the last ribbon is a Hindenburg Cross.  So what you're saying is that there's no medal from Baden and that the second medal is Bavarian.  Am I the only one who is confused?

Seeheld was referring to the photo, which seems to not be available anymore. It was a SA-Sturmführer wearing a medal bar with EK2, Bavarian Bravery Medal, BMVO4X and a Hindenburg Cross.

I thought the 2nd medal on that bar in photo is Bavarian life saving medal.

To Daniel Cole - I think the thread became a little confusing because there was a photo of an SA man that was posted, then it disappeared, and now it has re-appeared.  They're actually talking about two different bars... the ribbon bar with Baden and Bavaria and the medal bar on the SA man's uniform.  The SA man in the photo is wearing the Bavarian Lifesaving Medal.  The ribbon bar has a Carl Friedrich Medal from Baden along with a Bavarian Military Merit Cross.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
