Hi I am not sure where to POST THIS :frustrated: :frustrated:
It's question time and could anyone HELP.
Is the Iron Cross Medal (which was instituted in 1813 ?? by King Freidrich Wilhelm the 3rd still awarded to German Citizens since 1945 :pirat:
 
they now days receive a rather nice red enamel cross with a black eagle on it ,,in various classes,,-called bundersverdeinst cross...
the iron cross if awarded before 1945 canstill be worn in the 1957 pattern,,,ie the swastica is removed...

Thats a shame "Come with me I will show where the bundersvedeinst
crosses grow "dosen't have the same ring :mrgreen:
 
Am I alone in thinking that the demise of the Iron Cross is a bit sad? Sometimes I like to goose-step around wearing great uncle Herman's Iron Cross First Class with Oakleave Clusters.... :skull: Or I let my cat wear it:

Down the hall, first on your right, and don't forget to flush.

As the above have stated the Bundesverdienstkreuz,is the normal award and can go upto `Grosskreuz`size similiar to`garter`type sizes;However should PUPGREEN´s sprog show signs of being a hero he would be awarded the Bundeswehr Ehrenkreuz in Gold/Silver/Bronze.The tank commander that shot a Serbian attacker in Yugoslavia got the Gold version IIRC!(more for good PR than bravery I think?)

I thought the old Iron Cross looks more proffessional, traditional and Prussian !
 
Well I can wear the Iron cross butt naked with my shiny leather boots and a riding crop and yet still look impressive!!

I'd look a complete dork with the new bundesverbandskasten vereinigungsordenungsverdamtnochmalkreuz wouldnt I?
