  1. So you agree the last medal is the Finnische Tapferkeitsmedaille in Silber? Could you post a photo of the medal so we can compare?
  2. 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.
  3. Is this the Kriegsabzeichen für Hilfskreuzer Vizeadmiral Rieve is wearing?
  4. Sorry for the bad quality of the pics. Konteradmirals Otto Klüber (portrait) and Waldemar Kober (standing on the photo). They both recieved the Spainenkreuz, but I don't know the Class? Klüber perhaps the Spanienkreuz in Silber mit Schwertern? Kober also? Although he was the Chief Engineer on the Cruiser ‘Nürnberg’, so perhaps ohne Schwertern? Also, 2 unknown Awards below their Iron Crosses 1st Class? Klüber's is unfortunately covered by his hand... Thanks.
  5. Hello, what award is this? Thanks. The funeral pillow of Vizeadmiral Bernhard Rogge.
  6. Please help me ID the awards of this Vizeadmiral. What I have so far: 1914 EK II Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer Südwestafrika Denkmünze China Denkmünze Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz Finn. Freiheitskreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern ??? Erinnerungsmedaille des "Finnischen Freiheitskrieges" 1918 mit Spange ??? It is possible the 2 unknown awards are foreign. Thanks.

    Awards of Konteradmiral Waldemar Hirth?
  10. Hello. I want to start this topic because I am researching Kriegsmarine Konteradmirals and I require their Awards. I do not own any of the Ranglists that list the Awards (Kaiserliche Marine and Reichsmarine Ranglists) and I really need help from those forum members that do have the Ranglists. I will post the Konteradmiral whose Awards I need on this topic almost every day and I hope someone will be able to help me. I will also post the photo of the Konteradmiral if his ribbon/medal bar is visible and someone might be able to ID some additional Awards that are not listed in the Ranglists. To start off, I need the Awards of Konteradmiral Ernst Hintzmann. Below are photos with his ribbon bar visible. These are the Awards I managed to find: -Iron Cross (1914) 1st Class -Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class -Knight's Cross of the Royal House Order of Hohenzollern with Swords -Prussian Order of the Red Eagle 4th Class -Mecklenburg Military Merit Cross 2nd Class -The Honour Cross of the World War 1914/1918 -Medal "For Valour in the World War 1914-1918" (Commemorative Medal of the Union of German Naval Veterans Associations) *Note: this one isn't confirmed, but as he was the Chairman of the Union of German Naval Veterans Associations I think he could have been awarded this medal.
  11. Could you please write the full names of these awards: RA-Orden m.Schl.u,Schw; EK1; DA-Kreuz; Baden: O.v.Zähr. Löwen RK 3. Kl m.schw.; Meckl-Schw. Mil-Verdienstkr. 2. Kl.; Hanseatenkreuz Bremen, u. Lübeck; Braunschweig, Komdt. I can't really figure out all of them. Thank you!
  12. Can you please help me ID this Konteradmiral, photo was taken in Norway.
  13. This is what I managed to ID. 3 Admiral Ehrhard Schmidt (1863-1946) 4 Admiral Paul Behncke (1866-1937) 6 Vizeadmiral Adolf von Trotha (1868-1940) 7 Vizeadmiral Friedrich Boedicker (1866-1944) 8 Vizeadmiral Wilhelm Souchon (1864-1946) 9 Vizeadmiral Ludwig von Reuter (1869-1943) 10 Konteradmiral Magnus von Levetzow (1871-1939) 11 Konteradmiral Max Bastian (1883-1958) 13 Korvettenkapitän Felix Graf von Luckner (1881-1966) I'm missing numbers 1,2,5 and 12... Any ideas?
  14. Could you please help me identify the Naval Officers under numbers 1, 2, 5 and 12? The photo was taken at the solemn opening on May, 30th 1936 of the memorial in Laboe. Thank you.
