    Mix of German and Austrian medals, from my knowledge I can give you a small description of a few of them. Left to right Iron Cross second class, I believe the second is an Austrian a bravery cross, Hindenburg cross for combatants, the next three I can't tell and the last on the right is the Austrian vs of Hindenburg cross.

    Hope that helps a bit.

    Would the soldier who was awarded these medals have been in the thick of war..........or a pen pusher ?

    2nd is the Bavarian Kriegsverdienst Kreuz III Class with swords.
    Fourth is an Austrian 'Tapferkeit' (bravery) medal in silver
    Last two: WWI Austria-Hungary Commemoratives.

    The soldier would have been a combat vet. The Bavarian
    KVK is the Iron Cross equivalent for that State.

    It's a nice bar.........!



    Below, a similar but much smaller bar:

    Thankfully I have never needed to wear a military uniform, and I admire the courage in those who did.

    Nice Bavarian soldiers set.

    Just for clarification - last two Commemoratives are not Austrian. The last on is Hungarian and pre-last (and badly visible) seems me the Bulgarian one...
    Hungarian medal is also fixed with backside to front - you should change this

    And now, to be precise, I have to add that this pre-last award which seems to be the Bulgarian Commemorative medal has wrong ribbon - this ribbon is actually of Austrian Tiroler medal (which is quite similar to Bulgarian medal ribbon).

    So, English Bill - it seems You have to buy two (not one) Tiroler medals to fix Your two award bars (which are actually good bars)
