    Default Medal bar identification

    I've just received this medal bar and I'm hoping someone can help me identify the component parts.
    I can see a Red Star, a Bravery and a Combat Merit along with the Jubilee medals but that's all. Can anyone help me list list them please?

    I'm also guessing the image is upside down compared to how it wold be sewn?

    Cheers!

    Thanks Pierre, I discovered the the unknown ones were for service to motherland and an East German award.

    The picture is indeed upside down so with that in mind the full set reads;

    First Row: Lenin, Red Banner, Red Banner of labor, Red star
    Second: Order for service to Motherland III class, Combat Service, Leninīs centenary, Bravery during a fire
    Third: Distinguished military service medal, 20 yrs of victory in GPW, Veteran of AF, Medal for strenghening combat cooperation
    Fourth: 40, 50, 60, 70 years of Soviet AF
    Fifth: 20, 15, 10 years of irreproachable service, East German brotherhood in arms medal.

    I can feel another collecting bug starting to grow inside me

    The medal bar is upside down. First unknown award is the east german medal "brotherhood in arms" II class, the second unknown, next to Bravery in fire, is the Distinguished Military Service II class.
