    Noel, welcome to the Imperial German sub forum ! this is indeed an outstanding set ! especially with provanance ! there are some rare medals here, sadly tinged with Prussian brutality !.....his "South West Africa Colonial medal, clasps "Herero-Land” with award document, dated 1907" not Prussia's finest hour, obviously involved what most historians refer to as the genocide of the Herero people (1904-07), such is Imperialism ! However, it gives this set a place in history.....outstanding ! Thanks for showing. For members wishing to know more about the "Herero" campaign see here....

    Prost ! Steve.
