Thank you Thierry.
Where did you find this medal bar?

Also, do you agree the award "V. Kreuz (14. 09. 1920)" written for Walther Franz is the "Königlich Preußisches Verdienstkreuz für Kriegshilfe"?

Are you 100% sure about the first two dates (for the KO4 and SA3a)? The quality of the photos is really poor.
