  1. Oberst von Schlebrügge (Knight Cross holder, Narvik, as regimental commander) Dear forumites, Could somebody tell my if he got the White Falcon Order 2nd class with swords in WWI? And if so date of the bestowal of this decoration? As young cavalry officer of a Thüringisches Husarenregiment it could have well been so. Many thanks in advance for your kind assistance ! Best regards, Claudio
  2. Hi Laurentius, If you open up my attachment you would see that the claws are black. I also have seen, or I have in my collection, almost prominently eagles with red claws and not black... interesting! Thanks for your good words. Cheers, Claudio
  3. Dear forumites, Here's another nice medal bar owned by a Police officer; since there are somewhere the Lübeck Hanseatenkreuz rolls but aren't yet published I think this it would be a bit more difficult to research on.

Kl. 1914 am Kämpferband (OEK 1909), E gs/S; Deutsches Reich 1933-45, Wiederholungsspange 1939 zum Eisernes Kreuz 2. Kl. 1914, 2.

  4. Thanks Dave! Nonetheless a probable name is not bad at all!!! 7 out of 8 medals are on it and the KVK2 as you rightly said, there weren't always updated on the medal bars usually. Thanks again for your research! Claudio

  6. My Juncker... almost identical with one already shown here.
  7. Dear forumites, I’m not sure about the branch of these really very appealing general collar tabs; could they be either for the Geheime Feldpolizei or military judiciary branch. What do you think? Many thanks in advance for any educated comments or opinions. Best regards, Claudio
  8. King Edward VII Coronation Medal Can it be this medal?
  9. Nice bar! show please the back also, from the front it looks very much like a Godet bar...
  10. Hi Admiral, I think it must be a "Ritterkreuz" (Caballero) because it's without rosette, given usually to subaltern grade officers (lieutenant-captain, for the German KM from Leutnant z.See to Kapitänleutnant). See also Order of Merit Chile C
  11. First ribbon bars has two ribbons of non-official 1st WW Weimar-Republic era: 1) Ostfront-Kreuz des Ehrenbundes Sächsischer Weltkriegsteilnehmer (just half of it) 2) Ordensrat der Deutschen Ehrenlegion i. V. des Verbandes national gesinnter Soldaten e. V. with crossed swords for combattants cheers, C
  12. Some more data (ancestry) on Friedrich Theodor Ludwig von Stamford: Friedrich Ludwig Theodor von Stamford geboren am 23.11.1832 in Allendorf Werra (Bezirk Kassel, Kurfürstentum Hessen), Sohn des Friedrich Wilhelm Leopold von Stamford und der Charlotte Sophie Wiederhold (geb. 1810 – Todesdatum unbekannt), verheiratet in Littlemore (Oxfordshire, England) am 29.09.1869 mit (Harriet) Maud Huntingford (1848-1942). Ehegattin am 23.07.1942 in Belgium verstorben. Tochter Wilhelmine Maud von Stamford in Frankfurt a.M. (Hessen-Nassau, Preussen, Deutsches Reich) 08.02.1871 geboren. Interesting that he married in England! C
