57er Public sector 50 year Faithful service Cross..............
Gents, arrived this morning, an early made St u L piece evident by polished highlights, a quality made award.... this is for employees and workers in the private sector, "Treudienst-Ehrenzeichen fur Angestellte und Arbeiter der freien Wirtschaft" (Employee and Worker Faithful Service Medal) for 50 years, a bi-colour award in silver cross within a gold oak leaf surround, just sans swastika, other than that, as was in the Third Reich period...............not to be confused with the civil service faithful cross, the "Truedienst-Eherenabzeichen fur Beamte".
Last two images taken with flash, in an attempt to show polished highlights...........
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
