The 1914/1918 Ehrenkreuz

Article about: HPL2008 - Thank you for the reply - this seems to be a odd service range, the various colours were driving me crazy to say the least. - I have attached some rear and side shots, hopefully it

    Default The 1914/1918 Ehrenkreuz

    Hello all.

    just wanted to share some of my items for you to see and ask if you could help me with a question or 2

    From what I can figure out, the 2 buttons holds:

    IC2
    Austrian WW1 Commemorative Medal
    The 1914/1918 EhrenKreuz
    Unkown 1
    Unkown 2

    The Ribbon bar
    The middle Ribbon, a Gallipoli Star?

    Medal bar, was somebody funny or is there a good explernation why there is a noncombat Ehrenkreuz?

    Best regards

    The second ribbon directly below the EK2 ribbon in both lapel bows is that of the Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz (see pg. 1 of this thread).

    To me, the bottom ribbon in the first lapel bow looks like a badly faded example of the Hungarian WW1 commemorative medal on which the green stripes aren't really visible anymore. (How does the ribbon appear if you look at a lesser faded area, for example on the reverse side or by slightly lifting the ribbon above it?).
    Not sure about the bottom ribbon in the first lapel bow.

    I agree that the third ribbon in the ribbon bar is the Turkish War Medal [Harp Madalyası] or, colloquially, the "Gallipoli Star".

    If the Kriegsteilnehmer cross is seen together with an Iron Cross, the latter is usually on the white-and-black "non-combatant" ribbon. However, the combination with an Iron Cross on the normal black-and-white ribbon did occur.
    Have a look at an explanation by the late Rick Lundström over on the WAF:

    Rarest Form of 1914 EK2 on a Wehrmacht Medal Bar - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums

    By the way, you shouldn't use external photo hosting.

    HPL2008 - Thank you for the reply - this seems to be a odd service range, the various colours were driving me crazy to say the least. - I have attached some rear and side shots, hopefully it can help.

    I have seen that often the Gallipoli star had a halfmoon or a miniature of the acutal reward on the Ribbon, but the seller didn't find any such thing, antique dealer, lot came in a box from other random stuff.

    Thanks
