I have 4 photo's of my grandfather (Opa) during WW1. I have a friend who was in the antique business several years ago and he only sold military items. He said this photo was taken the day my Opa received his metal since after that day only the ribbon was worn. It appears that after the ceremony they celebrated with a good german beer. Thank you for taking the time to view my layout. Your comment's are always appreciated. Have a wonderful day.
