used on ribbon bars for these medals when applicable just like for the Hindenburg cross) however if this individual was entitled to the Hindenburg Cross with swords would'nt he also be entitled to the swords device for the commemorative Austrian medal as well ?

Thanks

A ribbon bar ...



and the Tyrol 'defence' award



Interesting the use of the different coloured swords on these bars ...

The Hungarian Commemorative Medal for WW1 was issued in two (2) versions:

1.) Combattant: With Swords on the front and Stahlhelm on the back of the Medal mounted on a COMBAT RIBBON

2.) Non-Combatant: NO Swords and NO Stahlhelm on the medal mounted on a NON-COMBAT RIBBON (totally different from the combat ribbon).

ON A RIBBON BAR: the mounting of silver crossed-sword devices on the Hungarian Commemorative Medal RIBBON for COMBATANTS on a ribbon bar is, therefore, redundant! They did it anyway, however, just for aesthetic effect.
