Austrian WW1 Medal for Military Merit ribbon. The swords denote a second award or a higher grade of wartime merit.
Welcome to the Imperial section Lads !....Larry is correct...you should not have much trouble finding the medals for these ribbons...they are frequently available on E-Bay Germany, inexpensive as well !
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."
G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
Thanks so much just the fact that you can give these treasures a "name" for me so I can at least know which direction to search is the best thing ever!!
And thank you for helping me figure out how this site works and for whoever is kind enough to move my posts to the appropriate platform!
