SOUTHWEST AFRICA – MEDAL BAR – THREE PLACE – SOUTHWEST AFRICA – HINDENBURG CROSS – 25 YEARS SERVICE
It features the three medals listed below from left to right.
1). The German Southwest Africa Combatants Medal, with two campaign bars. The bronze-toned decoration was awarded from 1904-1906 for combating this Imperial German colony’s native opposition. The two campaign bars (which add significant value to the decoration) are for “Hereroland” and “Gross-Namaland.” Both campaign bars were attached to the ribbon decades ago. They have NOT been recently added.
