I bought some german medals and badges from a guy this week which he said his great uncle had collected after being released from pow camp oflagv111f . And I must admit they look genuine to me.
Any way he put these ribbons and badges in with them for free without telling me. which was very kind of him. Wish he had giving me the military medal that goes with that ribbon, that really would have been a bonus.
What I would like to know is what are the three cloth badges and the small ribbon bar with the 8 on it . Another type of african star ribbon? It seems to be thread wrapped round something not a ribbon.
Thanks in advance for any help.
