  1. Does someone know which class of the Yugoslav Order of St. Sava this is? The ribbon bar belongs to Vizeadmiral Hans-Erich Voss. Thanks.
  2. Hello, can someone help me with the Bios and photos (photos are very important) of the following Admirals: Marinegeneralstabsarzt Dr. Ernst Böse Vizeadmiral (Ing.) Ernst Friedrich Konteradmiral Karl Klüpfel Konteradmiral (Ing.) Wilhelm Korreng Konteradmiral Hans Küsel Konteradmiral Albrecht Meissner Marinegeneralstabsarzt/Admiralarzt Edgar Pillet Konteradmiral Leo Riedel Marinegeneralstabsarzt/Admiralarzt Dr. Friedrich Titschak Konteradmiral Wilhelm Wilke Konteradmiral Fritz Wossidlo And is the bio of Admiralarzt Viktor Praefcke on this page correct? https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viktor_Praefcke Many thanks!
  3. Unknown class of a Japanese ribbon

    Keep in mind he was a Kapitan zur See during that time, not a Vizeadmiral. So you still think it's the 4th Class? I.e. the Officer's Cross?
  4. Unknown classes of two ribbon awards

    Thank you John. I believe the 2nd to last ribbon in the first row is the Spanish Order of Naval Merit, because the owner of this ribbon bar, Vizeadmiral Joachim Lietzmann was the recipient of the Grand Cross of the Spanish Order of Naval Merit with White Decoration. And the Spanish War campaign medal has black stripes on each end of the ribbon.
  5. Unknown class of a Japanese ribbon

    Hello, what class of the Japanese Order of the Sacred Treasure is this? This is the ribbon bar of Vizeadmiral Joachim Lietzmann who was the Naval-Attaché at the German Embassy in Tokyo, Japan (24 Aug 1937-30 Mar 1940).
  6. Hello, can someone please tell me what are the classes of the two circled awards? And if the awards I name below are correct for the assigned ribbons? 1st row: -Spanish Order of Military Merit 2nd row: -Japanese Order of the Sacred Treasure
  7. Does someone have a bio and awards list of the above mentioned man (maybe from Hildebrand's "Deutschlands Admirale 1849-1945 band 4)? A photo would be nice too. I have these photos where he can be seen... Thanks. First photo Uthemann standing in the first row second from the left. Second photo Uthemann on the far right.

  9. Hello, does someone own all 4 scanned volumes of the "Hans H. Hildebrand und Ernest Henriot: Deutschlands Admirale 1849-1945": Band 1. A-G (Ackermann – Gygas). 1988. 481 Seiten. Band 2. H-O (Habicht bis Orth). 1989. 555 Seiten. Band 3. P-Z. Osnabrück, Biblio Verlag, 1990, Gebundene Ausgabe, Ganzleineneinband, 617 Seiten. Band 4. Marinebeamte im Admiralsrang. Osnabrück, Biblio Verlag, 1996, Gebundene Ausgabe, Ganzleineneinband, 277 Seiten. And if yes, would you be willing to share them? They are very rare to buy in phisycal form and pretty expensive. As I am a history student I really need them for research purposes. I also know about the ABR sites that are based on these books, but they only list WW2 officers. Many thanks.
  10. Hello, This is an offcier whose ranks confuse me: Charakter als Kapitän zur See (11 Dec 1920); Charakter als Konteradmiral (01 Jun 1940); Kapitän zur See z.V. (07 Apr 1941) Why was he promoted to Kapitän zur See z.V. and didn't get the patent to Konteradmiral z.V.? Is it because earlier he was only a Charakter als Kapitän zur See? If so, look at his photo below, he is clearly wearing and Admirals cap. So if the photo was taken after 07 April 1941 (when he was promoted to Kapitän zur See z.V.) does this mean he was still allowed to wear a Konteradmirals uniform even though he was promoted to Kapitän zur See z.V.? As previously explained to me: "A charakterisierter Konteradmiral wears the Uniform of a Konteradmiral and is adressed as "Herr Admiral", but he is serving in the position of a Kapitän zur See and paid as such. Very often, officers received the Charakter of the next higher rank with their retirement as an appreciation of their services." But Erler was promoted to Charakter als Konteradmiral while placed at the disposal of the Kriegsmarine, not before retiring. Could someone share any light on this particular case? Many thanks.
  11. Thank you. So is it possible it was awarded for several months? Or should I say, is it possible that Hans Erler recieved it in April?
  12. Hello, does someone know for how long was the Centenary Medal awarded? It was established on 22 March 1897, but surely it wasn't awarded for just one day. While researching some Admirals I found information that they recieved the Centenary Medal in April 1897 (for example Hans Erler who joined the Kaiserliche Marine on 16 April 1897). Thanks.
  13. So you agree the last medal is the Finnische Tapferkeitsmedaille in Silber? Could you post a photo of the medal so we can compare?
  14. I agree it could well be the Finnische Tapferkeitsmedaille. In Silber right? That would make the awards from his medal bar on this photo as following: -1914 EK II -Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz -China Denkmünze -Südwestafrika Denkmünze -Finn. Freiheitskreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern -Erinnerungsmedaille des "Finnischen Freiheitskrieges" 1918 mit Spange -Finnische Tapferkeitsmedaille in Silber Also, no Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer on this photo because it is pre 1934. The last ribbon could be the Grand Cross of the Spanish Order of Naval Merit with White Decoration, seen on the last photo you posted.
  15. Is this the Kriegsabzeichen für Hilfskreuzer Vizeadmiral Rieve is wearing?
