Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Pictured here is Hans von Kirchbach who finished his 52 year career at the end of WWI.
He was a General of Artillery for Saxony's XII Reserve Corps in the German Third Army at the Battle of the Marne and served on the eastern front at wars end.  http://home.comcast.net/~jcviser/aok/kirchbach_h.htm

I'm sure someone here can tell me what the ribbon in his button hole is awarded for.  He was awarded the Pour le Merite in 1918, too.

I am wholly unfamiliar with military awards and there is sparse information on the web about him.  If you tell me it is, I'll believe you!

I will wait and see what others have to say but I have always refereed to them as wound stripes.
