Hi

Nice ribbon bars. It is strange to see on the first one, that the two first ribbons are smaller than the others. it's not too common to see

About the second one, a very nice Thuringian ribbon bar. I like to see Ernestine ribbon and Saxe Weimar ribbon. This bar is probably an NCO ribbon bar.

Congrats

Christophe

 

Here is a new one I have not shown yet

Hi,

Thank you very much. Yes, the first one is a bit strange, but I think it is original.

Very nice ribbon bar you got there. Could you ID it?


Best regards,

Nicolas

Agreed, nice Feldschnallen. Regarding the first one, it was apparently against statutes to wear the civil Kriegsverdienstkreuz with military decorations. I have a medal bar which also has this apparent faux pas.

Very interesting, Vince. Actually I am wondering if the combination of the top bar is even possible.

My guess would be: EK2, SA3bX, SK, AT, SWA3X, SD

Hello Nicolas,

Thank you for sharing these very nice ribbon bars.  The first two ribbons (EKII and SA3bX) on the upper field ribbon bar appear to be from the woven-together type ribbon stock for buttonhole wear.

An interesting combination.

Best regards,

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
