    Hi,

    This is the first "ribbon rack" I have ever come across. I did some research of my own, but am getting stumped by one of the ribbons and wanted to make sure what I have already concluded is correct.

    First ribbon is Iron Cross WW1
    I cannot figure out what the second ribbon is
    Third ribbon is Hindenburg cross with swords- (For combat participant in WW1)
    Fourth and Fifth are Luftwaffe Long Service Ribbons.

    Is this correct?

    Thanks,
    Phil

    You are correct with the ones you have identified, I am not too sure about the second one but it may be service medal (years) which was awarded during the Weimar Republic period.

    It's the Imperial-era Prussian Militär-Verdienstkreuz [Military Merit Cross], a prestigious decoration for NCOs and other ranks.

    (See: Military Merit Cross (Prussia) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    (By the way, there was no such thing as a military long service award during the Weimar period.)
