    This is a medal bar for a WW1 veteran who later worked in some kind of civil service occupation.

    The decorations are, from left to right:

    • 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class [Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse]
    • 1914-18 Honor Cross for Frontfighters [Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges 1914/18 für Frontkämpfer]
    • Austrian Commemorative Medal for WW1 [Kriegserinnerungsmedaille]
    • Faithful Service Award for 25 Years of Service [Treudienst-Ehrenzeichen für 25-jährige Dienstzeit]

    Kriegserinnerungsmedaille

    This medal was originally created 21 December 1932. It could be bestowed upon members of any of the former wartime Central Powers upon application. In 1933 swords were added to the ribbon to distinguish combatants from noncombatants

    Cheers, Ade.
