  1. Yes I would guess Schlesischer Adler-Orden
  2. 1957 German Medal Collection

    Bob, What an impressive collection. Close-ups would be great, as time permits. Kind regards Pierce
  3. Given his WW2 career it is possible that this is a KVK1 but a better photograph is needed to confirm.
  4. Propatria Museun

    Very nice 2-place medal bar.
  5. Ribbon Bars- opinions sought

    The third medal is for the Hamburg Hanseatic Cross, and not the Social Welfare Medal, which would be further down the bar.
  6. Ribbon Bars- opinions sought

    This bar is also a nice original- well made. P.
  7. Ribbon Bars- opinions sought

    Hans, This is a very nice bar for a NCO. The last ribbon is most likely the Hohenzollern Medal, rather than the Honour Cross. Kind regards Pierce
  8. Ostvolk Decoration 2nd Class with Swords. This is the actual medal that was part of his medal group.
  9. Generalmajor Dr. Ing. Uto Gallwitz - EK 2. Klasse - Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Österr. Kriegserinnerungsmedaille mit Schwertern - Schlesischer Adler-Orden 2. Stufe - Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 2. Klasse - Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Klasse - Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 13. März 1938 - Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 - Ungar. Kriegserinnerungsmedaille And what about around his neck, the Königl. Italien. Orden der Krone, Offizierkreuz
  10. Ribbon Bars- opinions sought

    Hans, I have moved these bars to their own thread as they do not belong in the "Godet Ribbon Bar" thread, as they are not made by Godet. The first two look ok (interesting last ribbon on 1st bar) but the last ribbon bar is a put-together in my opinion. Kind regards Pierce
  11. Good moaning, Ronnie....

    Joel, Welcome to HWMF. Please feel free to browse the various forums and add to any of the reference threads. I also look forward to your contribution. Kind regards Pierce
  12. This is the Württemberg Military Merit Medal in GOLD.
  13. These were more or less made for the collector's market but there are period photos (from 1960s onwards) of veterans wearing these. There probably was 1920s versions made, but by which firm, I am not sure- but this piece is post-WW2.
  14. I am not sure about the Zahringer Lion, but it could of course be that. Gihr was apart of Infantry Regiment 98 during WW1- it that is of any use.
  15. Surely you know some of these already?? You can see how the format of this thread works. -Prussian Iron Cross 2nd Class -Honour Cross with Swords -Silesian Eagle -Wehrmacht Long Service Decoration 2nd Class -Wehrmacht Long Service Decoration 4th Class -Baltic Cross -Hungarian Order of Merit (?) -Spanish Order of Naval Merit -Bulgarian Order of St. Alexander
