    Unknown class of the Portugese Military Order of Aviz

    I think the sash would be worn only on ceremonial occasions. This photo seems like an ordinary studio portrait. The Grand Cross would make sense since it says on the wiki: "Major Generals, Lieutenant Generals, Generals, Vice-Admirals and Admirals: Grand Cross." If it was the 2nd Class (i.e. Grand Officer) I pressume he would also wear the badge of the Order on a necklet, but he clearly doesn't.
  2. Hello. Can someone tell me what is this class of the Military Order of Aviz? The man wearing it is General der Flakartillerie Ludwig von Schröder. The english wiki says that the Grand Cross, Grand Officer and Commander classes all had the breast stars. Thanks

    I know about that page. But I was only able to find Slavko Kvaternik, not the rest. I don't have much experience with k.u.k. books and Rangliste. So I don't know where to search exactly.

    Does anyone know if A-H awards of General Slavko Štancer (also spelled Stancer or Stanzer) are listed in any of the k.u.k. Ranglisten or other books? I couldn't find it. He was lastly an Oberst in the k.u.k. army I believe. Thanks P.S. Thanks 1812 Overture and Christian for your help!

    Thank you Christian. Where did you find his Austrian decorations? Do you own that book or did you find it on the internet? I know about this site: https://hungaricana.hu/en/ with digitalised k.u.k. Rangliste and other books. From which one is this exempt for Perčević? Thanks

    Next up is General Ivan Perčević. 1 Gallipoli Star (Ottoman War Medal) 2 ??? 3 ??? 4 ??? And please help me identify the A-H awards on the medal bar. I can clearly see only the Order of the Iron Crown 3rd Class with War Decoration (and possibly Swords?). Thanks!

    Thank you very much tifes for you help. Greatly appreciated! To sum up Laxa, these are the awards I put on my list for him: -Knight's Cross of the Austrian Military Order of Maria Theresa (awarded on 10 December 1921) -Military Merit Cross 2nd Class with War Decoration and Swords (Austria-Hungary) (1916) -Order of the Iron Crown 2nd Class with War Decoration and Swords (Austria-Hungary) (1917) -Knight's Cross of the Austrian Imperial Order of Leopold with War Decoration and Swords (1915) -Military Merit Cross 3rd Class with War Decoration and Swords (Austria-Hungary) -Military Merit Cross 3rd Class (peace version) (Austria-Hungary) (1909) -Order of the Iron Crown 3rd Class (Austria-Hungary) (1913) -Honour Cross 1st Class for Services to the Red Cross (Austria-Hungary) -Bronze Military Merit Medal (Signum Laudis) with Swords on the Ribbon of the Military Merit Cross (Austria-Hungary) -Bronze Military Merit Medal (Signum Laudis) on the Red Ribbon (peace version) (Austria-Hungary) -Military Long Service Decoration for Officers for 25 years (Austria-Hungary) -War Service Medal 1873 (Kriegsmedaille) (Austria-Hungary) -Commemorative Medal 1898 on the Ribbon for Military (Austria-Hungary) -Commemorative Cross 1908 on the Ribbon for Military (Austria-Hungary) -Balkan Mobilisation Cross 1912-1913 (Austria-Hungary) -Gallipoli Star (Ottoman War Medal) -Grand Cross of the Romanian Order of the Crown -Grand Officer's Cross of the Bulgarian Order of Military Merit -Croatian Military Order of the Iron Trefoil 2nd Class (20 February 1942) -Grand Cross of the Croatian Order of the Crown of King Zvonimir with Star and Swords (18 August 1942) Is everything correct (the A-H awards listed I mean)? The dates for the awards are from some Croatian sources. You said above "Military Merit Cross 3rd Class with WD (no swords)". But I think those are swords on the ribbons of both the Military Merit Cross 3rd Class with WD and Bronze Military Merit Medal (Signum Laudis)? See photo below (this is another darker photo). Does the list where Laxa's awards were listed you posted earlier, show Štancer's (also spelt Stanzer or Stancer) awards? Thanks!

    Thanks. But you said that the last medal on Laxa's medal bar is the Balkan Mobilisation Cross 1912-1913?

    Thank you tifes. So is Laxa's Bronze Military Merit Medal also on the ribbon of the Military Merit Cross? And could you post a photo of the Military Long Service Decoration for Officers for 25 years? Thanks

    Here is the close up of the medal bar: - Order of the Iron Crown 3rd Class with War Decoration and are those Swords on the ribbon ??? - Military Merit Cross 3rd Class with War Decoration - Military Merit Cross 3rd Class (peace version) - Bronze Military Merit Medal (“Signum Laudis”) ??? (crown device below the ribbon, on the ring) - Silver Military Merit Medal (“Signum Laudis”) ??? (or could it be another Bronze one?) (also crown device) - Balkan Mobilisation Cross 1912-1913 ???

    But 1st Class of the Bulgarian Military Merit Order is the Grand Cross? Do you then think it's the Grand Officer? Only the 1st class (Grand Cross) wears the sash: "I grade, Grand Cross. Awarded to senior state officers and military personnel. It was worn with a sash over the shoulder." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_Military_Merit_(Bulgaria)

    #2 See the photo below for the bottom of the sash from the painting. Seems to be the Grand Cross of the Bulgarian Military Merit Order. #4 Štancer commanded the 25th Royal Croatian Home Guard Regiment during WW1. That regiment was part of the 42nd Home Guard Infantry Division (Devil's Division). So it is quite possible this award is as you say, the A-H Devil's Division Badge. But on the painting it looks a little different (perhaps the painters fault). Any idea about the medal bar awards? Thanks
