The medals on this bar in order of seniority from left to right are-

Prussian Wilhelm I Centenary Medal

The original owner of this medal bar was a combatant veteran of the Boxer Rebellion. He had been in regular service in the Prussian army or German navy since at least 1897. This combination of two medals was very common amongst other ranks who served in China.
