This Order of Glory is in nice condition with most details present.The higher laying parts like the clock in the tower and the wreath show light to medium wear. The enamel is problem free and shows some minor chipping only. There have been no repairs and its connection ring has been cut. The order comes with its time period brass suspension.
Probably awarded during the winter of 1944/1945 so with great research potential!
The Order of Glory, modelled closely upon the Tsarist Cross of St. George, was awarded to non-commissioned officers and soldiers of the armed forces, as well as junior lieutenants of the air force, for bravery in the face of the enemy. A person initially received the third degree, and would subsequently be promoted to higher degrees for further acts of bravery.
