Photo of great-aunt Ruth
« on: Thursday 01 March 18 19:19 GMT (UK) »
Hey just wondering if anyone would be able to know possibly what kind of medal that was around her neck.

Taken in Germany 1934.

I think it is just a piece of jewellery hanging round her neck on the chain I think I can see.  But Rami could be right . . . . might be part of the dress.

Agree - not a medal.

I thought it was just part of her shirt as well at first but my mom convinced me otherwise
