Default Ribbon ID Please ?

I wondered if anyone could ID these ribbons please ... other than the Honour Cross of course.

Cheers, Ian.

Not sure of their spelling; but if I'm reading this right it's Social Welfare volunteer work, Saxony.

Best,

James

Couldn't find the other; assuming it's Saxony also, but maybe Pierce or JasonA can help us /w that.

Best,

I was just thinking; it's kind of mind-boggling all the possible ribbons we can find on Imperial era ribbon & medal bars. We are always looking these up; learning something new.

Think of all the combinations:

Franco-Prussian War
First World War
Second World War
Campaign Medals
Foreign Decorations
Weimar era "Vanity" medals for Vet Orgs & Freikorps
Colonial Medals
NSDAP Decorations
Social Welfare / Red Cross
Service Medals
Commemorative / Jubilee Medals


That's a lot to remember...

James

No prob. I've been "lifting" their graphics for a while now; they are copyrighted - so was always leery of that; guess they never noticed,

Ian,

Can you show us the back please?

The unknown ribbon is for the Saxon State Association of the Red Cross Medal.
This should probably be in last place.

The other ribbon (striped) is for the Saxon Honour Cross for Welfare.

Kind regards,
Pierce

Yes, sorry Pierce … the bar was posted upside down. Another from Ebay that I made a cheeky offer on.

Better shots when I have some daylight and dry, so maybe July ? Thanks ever so much for the ID and sharing the bars.
