    Hi guys. I am new to the forum.

    All the way down south in sunny South Africa (this week that should read bloody hot South Africa).

    Thought I would start off with two of my favourite items.

    Crosses for 10 and 25 year service as a DRK nurse in the Reich.

    Welcome to the forum Kryptos and thank you for posting.
    I have to admit knowing very little about these but they look like fine examples. Did they come on ribbons? Can you tell us more about these medals as they are quite rare to find.

    Thanks for the welcome, guys! Looking forward to reading more in the forum.

    Wolfspear is spot on there. The matron's crosses are even harder to find with the senior matron's cross being very rare.

    The items were suspended from a neck chain and did not come on a ribbon at all.
