The most plausable theory that I've yet heard for the identity of the mysterious plain blue ribbon in last place is that it's either a peacetime Wurttemburg Friedrichsorden or a peacetime Prussian Crown order, with the ribbons arranged with all wartime decorations first, followed by all of the peacetime decorations. However, having some new faces in here, I wanted to bounce this off the collective wisdom of the group to see if anyone might be aware of any plausable (and most likely fairly obscure) foreign decorations that this could possibly be.

are there small white stripes at both sides, nearly not to see, a bit rubished and it only looks completely blue? then it could be the greek order of redeemer.... just to think about it, I have a similar bar with a redeemer on it where the white stripes are nearly not to see....

    • As a theology student my professor, a much published former Naval chaplain, set us an essay, saying that if we could answer that successfully we would be guaranteed  a good degree "Which of the gospel writers was the biggest liar, discuss."   I got a good mark, but  don't want to be burned for heresy.   P

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
