Nice bars Michael!
Here is my minty W&L bar
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
Some very nice bars there.
The two unidentified decorations in the first post are:
- Group 2 (second medal on the bar): Hessische Tapferkeitsmedaille [Hessian Medal of Bravery]
- Group 4 (fifth medal on the bar): Magyar Háborús Emlékérem [Hungarian War Commemorative Medal]
As for the Bavarian crosses: Allow me to remark that "War Service Cross" is not an exact translation; this is the Bayerisches Militärverdienstkreuz, which translates as "Bavarian Military Merit Cross". Group 1, 3 and 4 has the 3rd Class of the cross, Group 5 the 2nd Class.
