    Default Single 57er ribbon bars.................

    Gentlemen, on the subject of single ribbon bars which are rarely seen on BW uniforms, if ever....as I would guess 99.9% of ex-Wehrmacht soldiers were awarded more than one, two medal ribbon bars are sometime seen but never a "single".....they were usually supplied/sold as an "add on" like the sports badge bar shown below, and of course the RK bar was always out on its own above everything else !
    I would imagine that they were constructed in the same way as their "multi" brothers...........slight differences in the miniatures attached according to manufacturer.
    Later "singles" often seen on E-Bay are of modern production for the collector and are mounted on metal slider bars in use in the BW long after the last veteran retied ! (one such modern multi ribbon bar I show below) I have some of these later made 57er bars which I will show in a later post..............
    Attached images show an RK & Sports badge single (Eberhard Pohl's bars) and a single 1914 EK I bar, all three typical early to mid production types.
    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."
