    Default "Kurland" 57er ribbon bar........

    Ladies and Gentlemen.....a small "salty" 57er ribbon bar for my collection....featuring Infantry Assault badge and Kurland cuff title. IMO would assume the recipient was probably a young conscript with service towards the end of the war, probably part of the reinforcements sent to Kurland close to end of the war, as his haul of awards is small.
    Wartime cuff title campaign awards were not allowed to be worn on Bundeswehr tunics....they were however redesigned as a ribbon bar device..Afrika, Kurland, Metz and Kurland...no Spanien, deemed as a political award, therefore banned ! and of course no Regimental titles.......for information on the Kurland campaign see here...

    "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."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
