don´t worry

I don´t think you have to worry at all. It could have been made just as you mensioned in Germany during soviet rule. It´s rare that forgers put the job in to find out what order the ribbons should be put in. I have seen lots of diffrent backings and this one just adds som interest to the story about it!

Hi Dave, I'm surprized with the color used on DDR uniforms...on my screen the backing cloth appears common soviet wave green, what uniform are you thinking of? I don't think I'm the best in DDR uniforms so bring me some little light!

the ribbon bar make me think to an officer who would have started his career in the 50', early enough to gather a captain or starchii leitenant in 1958 to be granted the jubilee medal. Then he earned the common jubilee and complete service med, the red star for military merit and the motherland 3rd class as a top of his career (colonel or general-maior?). He seems have closed his career before 1988 (motherland earned in the 80'?).
It is curious he doesn't have the veteran of vs medal, and he has the 20 years victory...
Doug, Dave, a participant to the WW2 was nearly always decerned the victory over germany med? if not could he merit 20 years later the 20 y jubilee med?

Marc-

I'm no expert on E. German uniforms, but the color does look like at least the WW2 German uniform color, and as I recall, some of the early E. German uniforms carried on that color. I could be way off, but that's what I've heard (my girlfriend told me...) :D

God forbid that the officer may have simply gotten some spare cloth from a fabric store... ;)

In regard to the medals, the regulations changed for the 1975 awarding, in the fact that in 1965, all serving military members were awarded the medal, and in 1975 and 1985, only the veterans were awarded them.

Thanks and Bravo

Dave, Charlet, Sovvisor and all the experts,

Many thanks for your inputs and comments... It is always fantastic to see how you manage to give life (again) to a simple "historical" object...

One more time, "bravo".

If this ribbon bar is genuine I don't think that this person served during WWII. There is no victory over Germany ribbon there.

Hi, your officer served in the brother countries, with his strenghtening military coop soviet medal. He received the brotherhood medal 3rd class of DDR, a romanian medal and an hungarian military service medal, maybe silver class.

Thank You for this information.
Actually, even though there are so few ribbons, they come from general's uniform.

btw. I would swear that I have posted this thread in "medals" section...
