    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    Prussian red cross medals, original...... Bronze third class (1898-1917) and twenty year long service medal, but swop them around as they are on the wrong ribbons.
    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)

    Indeed - Steve is correct on the ID, and that they
    need to be switched around.

    The cross and blue/white ribbon is unusual - I'd
    not seen it before, and so in searching found
    the Bavarian 20 Jahre Dienstzeit cross is
    not that common.........
    Regards,
