    It's more than likely a ribbon for the WWI commemorative
    Hindenburg Cross.........

    I found this photo which shows a medal which looks quite similar, its a 1938 Austrian Anschluss medal ribbon.

    With the limited quality of the photo it is very hard to tell, I would lean more towards Steve's guess, however your guess may also be plausible.

    The photo is not nearly clear enough for a positive ID, but it looks like the Austrian annexation medal to me as well.

    This also makes sense as Herr Kasinger was an Austrian and a Nazi activist even prior to the annexation. The 1914/18 Honor Cross is not even possible as we was born in 1906. How do I know this? From the other threads in which he featured.

    Will: No offense, but let me repeat my advice from last year... It's really not practical to keep starting new threads about your great-grandfather, and my above comment illustrates why it is useful to keep all the available information on him in one place.
