Somewhat Interesting photo to share-

Article about: Hi guys, Just acquired a studio portrait that was interesting (to me), and maybe to some others and figured I'd share and hear some comments. This Feldwebel is wearing a World War 1 1914 Iro

    Andreas, thanks for commenting, I figured you would like this one! After Ralphs opinion last night of him maybe not receiving the actual medal yet, it got me to start pondering ideas along the same lines as yours, and I think your guesses are right, as they are the most "reasonable" theories. Like I said to Ralph in a PM, I have heard that sometimes soldiers would mail the actual Cross/medal home for safe keeping/etc, and just keep the ribbon with them for tunic wear. So like you stated, if he was on a short leave....finding an alternative like this might have been the only solution in the time of need, when style was everything.

    Again Thank you, and everyone else for commenting so far! I really enjoy photo's like these.....just when we think we've seen it all! lol
