    Kaiserliche Marine, Kriegsmarine and it's Admirals.
  1. Thank you very much! The unknown ribbon you left out is the Kriegsverdienstkreuz (1939) 2. Klasse ohne Schwertern I'm pretty sure. How sure are you about the 3 ribbons you identified (can I put these awards in my awards list for Lorey)? And also do you think the Liakat and Imtiaz medals are more likely to be the Silver versions instead of Gold (the Gold versions were pretty hard to get)?
  2. Do you have any ideas? Do you at least agree with my identifications?
  3. I'm sorry but this is the best I can do. I think the ribbons are visible good enough.
  4. What is this award? Braunschweig Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse or Mecklenburg-Schwerin Militärverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse? Or something else? Thanks!
  5. Can you help me identify the awards of Hermann Lorey from his ribbon bar? This is his list of awards I managed to find: Königl. Preuss. Kaiser Wilhelm-Erinnerungsmedaille 1797-1897 Kolonialdenkmünze mit Spange „Venezuela 1902/03“ Königl. Preuss. Roter Adler-Orden 4. Klasse 1914 EK 2. Klasse 1914 EK 1. Klasse Kaiserl. Türkischer Osmanje-Orden 4. Klasse Kaiserl. Türkischer Medschidiè-Orden 4. Klasse mit Säbeln Kaiserl. Türkischer Eiserner Halbmond Königl. Preuss. Dienstauszeichnungskreuz Marineverwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz (1918) Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer Kriegsverdienstkreuz (1939) 2. Klasse ohne Schwertern Now his ribbon bar: - 1914 EK 2.

  6. I found our man Vizeadmiral Walter Engelhardt On the 2nd photo below you can see he wears the Kommandeurkreuz 2. Klasse des Dannebrogorden, and Engelhardt recieved this award (source Rangliste 1914)
  7. Thank you, I have the 3 volumes of Deutschlands Admirale with photos inside so I might find something there. The thing is, an Admiral could have been awarded the Gallipoli Star even if he didn't serve in Turkey. Otherwise it would be easy to find a Vizeadmiral that served in Turkey during WW1.
  8. Does anyone know who this Vizeadmiral might be. Previously I thought he was Wilhelm Souchon but looking at his sleeve insignia, he is clearly a Vizeadmiral and Souchon was an Admiral (promoted in 1918 and this photo was taken in 1936). And also he looks much taller and fatter than Souchon (see 2nd and 3rd photo of Souchon below for comparison). He also wears the Gallipoli Star, so it might help with the identification. Thanks.
  9. Can we try and ID his ribbon bar awards? And what does he wear around the neck?
  10. Yes, the second to last medal seems to be the Order of the Zähringer Lion.
  11. Here is a full photo of Schlegel's medal bar with all medals visible. Can we ID this medal bar too? Is the last medal Bulgarian or some other?
  12. Thank you guys! One question for Dave, how can you tell the difference between the 4th and 3rd Class of the Crown Order? And the last few medals are very blurry on his medal bar. Did you perhaps already know all of his decorations or were you able to ID them now from his ribbon/medal bar? If so, props to you! And if the last ribbon is the Bulgarian Military Bravery Order, what class does the crown represent? And am I correct in saying that around the neck he is wearing the Merit Cross 1st Class for Services to the Red Cross with War Decoration (Austria-Hungary)?
  13. I'm sorry, what do you mean with "SEHO" and "MBO"?
