To all my fellow colleagues here I would like to show the happily reunited set of medal and ribbon bar that was recently discussed. Many thanks to those that posted and a very special thank you to Daniel and Colin for making this possible.

Paul,

 There was a post on it but it kind of wandered a bit so I started a new one.

OK, time for a novice question: what's the significance of the eagles on the 2 medals on the right...possibly rewarding of a second medal or upgrading to a higher ''level'' of those medals?

Hi,

these are parts from the Decoration, so-called Bandadler, and the Bandadler 

are allways in the same colour from the medal.

Here we have:

Dienstauszeichnung für Heer und Marine 1. class for 25 years (cross)

Dienstauszeichnung für Heer und Marine 3. class for 12 years (medal)

The difference from Heer / Marine to Luftwaffe is only another form of eagle.

 

Regards Andreas

Andreas,

Thanks for the reply. I'm new to medal collecting and have US, UK and South African medals so I'm familiar with oak leave clusters denoting further awards, hence the question.
