    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.

    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.........
