Yep I know it was for Tyrolians, but I didn't know it was locally awarded for those foreigners in -28 that also defended it from Italy. Well it's no surprise as this guy was most likely a soldier of the Kgl. Bayerische Gebirgs-Artillerie-Abteilung Nr. 2 which was a part of the Elite Alpenkorps. This unit was later transferred to the Ostsee Division (the only Bavarian unit) so the Tyrol connection would fit in here as he most likely was a former member of the Alpenkorps.

Guess this guy moved around Europe a bit more than we at first thought, as the Alpenkorps served on the Western Front (Verdun), Eastern Front (Serbia & Romania) and Italian front (Caporetto), perhaps the most mobile German unit during the war.

That's a beautiful bar Tomasz, nothing beats a well worn bar!
I really like these Unification War bar's when Bismarck ruled, or more correct would be to say when he controlled Prussia.

That's a nice bar, I like how in Saxony they usually put their own state awards first.

Possibly there was another award at the last place (may be a Saxon Kriegerverein?), later replaced by EKF
