That is a beautiful set, the best I've ever seen. He has the Chanakale (Gallipoli) bar on his Turkish War Medal ribbon so he was one of reactively few Germans at that battle. Very cool.

Very nice. Interesting to see a St. Stanislav order on a wartime bar.

But even then, I'm surprised he continued wearing it.

What a piece of art!
In case you dint know what is the writings on the metal bars on the ribbon means, i will try to explain it to you. The first two say- year 1332 -its an Islamic calendar(Hijri calendar) so its = 1914 and the last bar -Çanakkale-.

I agree, the battle clasp read Gallipoli, which makes a new research topic for this Oberleutnant.
