This is a very nice WWI/WWII medalbar (ordenspange) from Bavaria (Bayern) with the following medals:
- Iron Cross second class
- Bayern Militärverdienstkreuz mit schwertern (Military merit cross with swords)
- Frontkämpferehrenkreuz mit schwerter
- WWI Austria war commemorative medal with swords
- Treue Dienste kreuz für 25 Jahre (Layal service cross for 25 years).
If we read the medalbar we see a World War One veteran who earned the Iron Cross and Bavaria military merit cross with swords and served also with Austria (which is not too strange seeing the Bavaria cross too), for which he got the commemorative medal. For his WWI service and fights in the trenches he got in 1934 when the NSDAP got to power and instituted the Frontkämpfer Honourcross (Hindenburgkreuz), this cross with swords. For his civil loyal work he got after 1938 the 25 year loyal service cross.
Very interesting is the buttonhole miniature and full size ribbonbar. This also has a woundbadge miniature device.
A nice group in great condition!
