    Default WWII GJ Tunic with WWI Ribbon bar

    Hello

    Got a GJ tunic with an original mounted WWI area ribbon bar

    I could figure out what awards are on this spange:

    4x Taperkeits Band für Frontkämpfer
    3x Tapferkeitsband mit Schwerternfür Frontkämpfer
    1x Österreichisch Kaiserlicher Orden der Eisernen Krone
    mit Schwertern für Frontkämpfer

    As this is not my field of collecting i have some questions to get a clue

    - Why are there so many ribbons always representing the same bravery award
    - Is the Österreichisch Kaiserlicher Orden der Eisernen Krone
    mit Schwertern some kind of a higher bravery award
    - Is this award spange representing a lets say brave WWI soldier

    A link to a website explaining the bestowal of this awards would be also very appreciated, i could not find something usefull in the net till now

    Moved to the correct forum.

    It may be wise to start another thread which relates directly to the Imperial awards in the Imperial forum and not get it mixed up with any TR uniform research questions.

    They're different subjects although they are about the same tunic. Different collectors in different areas will be able to help, they just need to see it.

    Hi Herbert, I have copied this thread for you into the Imperial forum too so to give it the best coverage.

    Not a subject I know anything about sorry.

    Cheers, Ade.
