  1. I am trying to identify the Konteradmiral between numbers 10 and 11. Do these 2 photos below show the same man? On the right is Charakter als Konteradmiral Johannes Horn.
  2. I think I found out who the Konteradmiral is (number 2)! Ernst-Oldwig von Natzmer (on the left, photo below). Compare the photos below.
  3. No problem. I will work on number 2 (the Konteradmiral) and let you know if I identify him.
  4. I think number 12 is Vizeadmiral Hugo Meurer. Does anyone agree? Compare the 3 photos below. Thanks
  5. Hello, Can you please help me identify the awards from the ribbon bars of Konteradmiral Hasso von Bredow. His list of awards I have: -Iron Cross (1914) 1st Class -Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class -Prussian Order of the Red Eagle 4th Class -Spanish Order of Naval Merit 1st Class -Knight's Cross 1st Class of the Saxon Albrecht Order with Swords -Prussian Long Service Cross 1st Class (25 years) -Knight of Honor (Ehrenritter) of the Johanniter Order -The Honour Cross of the World War 1914/1918 with Swords -Wehrmacht Long Service Awards 4th to 1st Class I have 2 photos of his ribbon bar. The first one is pre-WW2 (possibly from 1927) and the second one is taken during WW2. Ribbon bar from the first photo: - Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class - Prussian Order of the Red Eagle 4th Class ??? - Prussian Long Service Cross 1st Class (25 years) ??? - Knight's Cross 1st Class of the Saxon Albrecht Order with Swords - Silesian Eagle 2nd Class ??? - Spanish Order of Naval Merit 1st Class ??? (source 1914 Rangliste) - ??? Ribbon bar from the second photo: - Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class - Knight's Cross 1st Class of the Saxon Albrecht Order with Swords - The Honour Cross of the World War 1914/1918 with Swords - The photo is of bad quality but in the book it looks like the Silesian Eagle 2nd Class (von Bredow was part of the Naval Brigade Loewenfeld) ??? - Prussian Order of the Red Eagle 4th Class ??? - Wehrmacht Long Service Award 1st Class - Wehrmacht Long Service Award 3rd Class - Prussian Long Service Cross 1st Class (25 years) ??? (also a blue ribbon I think) - ??? - Spanish Order of Naval Merit 1st Class ??? Thanks!
  6. Is the 3rd Class Grossoffizier, Komtur or Offizier?
  7. What is the class of the Chilean Order of Merit of Vizeadmiral Kinzel? I think it is different than Fricke's. Thanks
  8. Thank you Dave! Now, all of Wedding' awards have been identified. Here is more info about the sixth medal: http://antique-photos.com/en/awardsdatabase/weimarawards/209-commemorative-medal-of-the-union-of-german-naval-veterans-associations.html
  9. On a russian forum someone said this is the sixth medal (photo below). I don't know how it is called though.
  10. Thank you very much Dave! I have a photo of Wedding and another one of his medal and ribbon bars when he got the Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer. On the first photo he is wearing 4 unofficial awards. I think the third medal is the Deutsche Ehrendenkmünze des Weltkriegs and the fourth the Flandernkreuz. The Kaiser Wilhelm Centenarmedaille is also visible. Do you have any idea on what the fifth (oval) and the sixth (round) medals are? Both with "Schwertern" devices. I think the fifth (oval) medal could be the Kyffhäuser-Kriegsdenkmünze? http://www.medal-medaille.com/sold/product_info.php?products_id=13019 Also, I can't see the Kyffhäuser-Verdienst-Kreuz you linked above? He doesn't seem to be wearing it? Thanks
  11. Anyone? Please. This is what I managed to work out so far. RAO2EXXRs2: ??? RAO4X: Roter Adler Orden IV. Klasse mit Schwertern KO2: Kronen-Orden II. Klasse ??? DA: Dienstauszeichnungskreuz I. Klasse China Tientsin: China-Denkmünze in Bronze mit Spange "Tientsin" BH: Bremisches Hanseatenkreuz HH: Hamburgisches Hanseatenkreuz LüH: Lübeckisches Hanseatenkreuz OK1: Grossherzoglich Oldenburgisches Friedrich August-Kreuz I. Klasse OK2a: Grossherzoglich Oldenburgisches Friedrich August-Kreuz II. Klasse mit Spange “Vor dem Feinde” ??? GM3: From 1914 Rangliste: "St. Michael und Georgs-Orden, Kreuz der Genossen" What does the Kreuz der Genossen mean? What class is that in german? SMK1: Spanischen Orden für Verdienste zur See, I. Klasse DtEDM: ??? Flandern: ??? Kyffh: ??? UKDM: ???
  12. Hello, Can someone please tell me the full names of these awards written in abbreviations for Karl Wedding? RAO2EXXRs2, RAO4X, KO2, DA, China Tientsin, BH, HH, LüH, OK1, OK2a, GM3, SMK1, DtEDM, Flandern, Kyffh, UKDM Some of them are unofficial awards. Many thanks!

    Unidentified WW2 Kriegsmarine Signatures

    Hello, can someone read the writing on this photo? I think it also includes the signature of the man on the photo. That would certainly help to identify him. Thanks
