Army Paratrooper grouping, with a post-war Dutch Order of Orange-Nassau, Commander Grade.

 

Hi Pierce,

 

Thank you for showing us this special one.

I like that one really very much myself.

From the Dutch point of view : from "bad" guy during the war to good guy after the war.

Any background information to the former owner ? when not - maybe the Kanselarij der Nederlandse Orden is able to help you.

 

Best regards

Hi Eric-Jan,
 
Unfortunately this one did not come with a name. The Netherlands seemed to award a few of these Orders to Germans in the post-war years- I have seen other bars with it on. It may be worth pursuing but he would be difficult to track down I think.

 

Are the Kanselarij der Nederlandse Orden forthcoming with info on recipients of their decorations?

Hi Pierce,

 

It is always worth a try to contact them, who knows what happens.

 

Best regards

10-place ribbon bar of a former Kapitän zur See with over 40 years service in the Navy. Of particular note is the TAKU Clasp on the 1901 China Commemorative Medal.

This is my favourite of all my 57er bars. :squint:

Thanks for showing Pierce.

 

Interesting ribbon bar from a man who was around during several conflicts.

 

Any more information on the man, as you do know his rank and how long he did serve ?

 

Best regards

Hi E-J
 
Unfortunately the name is not known but a collector friend has this officer's WW2 ribbon bars.

The shoulder boards also were part of the same group as well as some of the actual medals. The officer was a Kapitän zur See of artillery or ordnance.

Gentlemen, just picked this one up, my first bar to include Imperial awards, a 57er period ribbon bar, mostly Imperial, EK I, EK II, Hamburg Hanseatic cross, Hindenburg Cross with Swords and 25yr Police long service medal (TR)...............not a standard Bundeswehr sized bar, but I have seen this larger style on both Police and Fire tunics.

Hi Steve,

I saw this one too. You got a bargain in my opinion. These types of bars are not as popular as the standard Bundeswehr type we usually see with the wide ribbons, but they sure did exist, probably using left over war-time parts.

Here is a 10-place I got back in October, showing at least 40 years service and also the Prussian Red Eagle Order. :laugh:
