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:

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 !
