This is a great Legion Condor medal bar consisting of five medals, being:
- Iron Cross second class
- Kriegsverdienstkreuz mit Schwerter
- Ostmedaille (Winterschlacht im Osten)
- Luftwaffe Dienstauszeichnung für 4 Jahre
- Medalla de la Campana
When “reading” the bar we see someone who participated in the legion Condor operation in Spain in the period of 1936-1939, most probably as part of the Luftwaffe, this is indicated by the Spanish Medalla de la Campana that was given to German soldiers for their service in the Spanish civil war and the Luftwaffe Dienstauszeichnung für 4 Jahre. At a later time in the war the recipient served at the Eastern front, this is were he probably earned the Iron Cross and War Merit Cross, and for which service he recieved the Winterschlacht im Osten medaille.
In light worn condition, very hard to find and a desirable collectable medalbar!
ps: the blue ribbon is postwar which makes the bar a after the war assembled piece.
