  1. Yes, the second to last medal seems to be the Order of the Zähringer Lion.
  2. 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?
  3. 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)?
  4. I'm sorry, what do you mean with "SEHO" and "MBO"?
  5. Did anyone try to ID Schlegel's awards from his medal bar? I found another photo with his ribbon bar... Let's try and ID his awards: Around the neck: - Merit Cross 1st Class for Services to the Red Cross with War Decoration (Austria-Hungary) ??? Medal bar: - Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class - Prussian Order of the Red Eagle 4th Class ??? - Prussian Order of the Crown 4th Class ??? - Prussian Red Cross Medal 2nd Class ??? - Prussian Long Service Cross ??? - ??? - South West Africa Medal in Steel ??? - Prussian Centenary Medal 1897 ??? - Bavarian Military Merit Order 4th Class with Swords ??? The rest can't be seen on the medal bar... It's too blurry. Ribbon bar: - Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class - Prussian Order of the Red Eagle 4th Class ??? - Prussian Order of the Crown 4th Class ??? - Prussian Red Cross Medal 2nd Class ??? - South West Africa Medal in Steel ??? - Prussian Long Service Cross ??? - Bavarian Military Merit Order 4th Class with Swords ??? - ??? - Something with Crown (perhaps foreign) ??? - ??? - ??? (again some sort of device) I guess he isn't listed in the Rank Lists?
  6. Thank you! Do you know what is the class of the Red Cross decoration? And the Social Welfare Decoration then isn't on his ribbon bar? Only the breast decoration?
  7. Who are these Pour le mérite holders? Especially the Admiral?
  8. Can someone please help me with the awards of following officers that are listed in the Reichsmarine Ranglisten? Could you be kind enough and share the screenshots of their enteries in the Rangliste? Marinegeneralarzt Dr. med. Ernst Böse (1922 Rangliste) Franz Claassen (1928 Rangliste) Victor Praefcke (1922 Rangliste) Wilhelm Wilke (1922 Rangliste) Erich Heyden (1928 Rangliste) (Ing.) Friedrich Hilbig (1922 Rangliste) Many thanks in advance!
  9. To me he looks like Wilhelm von Lans? And notice the same award on the 2nd photo, and the one I posted first.
  10. Great ribbon bar! Can someone please ID the 3rd ribbon in the first row and last ribbon in the second row? Thanks.
  11. What is the class of his Chilean award?
  12. What is the class of his Chilean award?
  13. Yes. Do you know something about this medal?
  14. Did anyone ever hear about this medal: China Silberne Erinnerungsmedaille (China Silver Commemorative Medal) (not to be confused with the China-Denkmünze (China Medal) in Stahl (Steel). I found info that 3 later Admirals (Edmund Schulz, Emil Heusinger von Waldegg and Alfred Saalwächter) that were on board the SMS Hertha in 1904 recieved this medal. And many other officers/sailors that were onboard the Hertha. The only medal I managed to find is the Inoffizielle Erinnerungsmedaille "Zum Andenken an meine Dienstzeit in China" but this one was in Bronze. Was there perhaps a version in Silver?
  15. Neck order (From top to bottom) - Kgl. Preuß. Kronen-Orden II. Klasse mit Schwertern - Komtur I. Klasse des Kgl. Württembg. Friedrichs-Ordens mit Schwertern - Finn. Freiheitskreuz I. Klasse mit Schwertern Medal Bar : 13 medals - 1914 EK II - Kgl. Preuß. Roter Adler-Orden IV. Klasse - Kgl. Preuß. Kronen-Orden III. Klasse - Braunschweigisches Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse - Hanseatenkreuz Hamburg - Hanseatenkreuz Bremen - k.u.k. Österr. Orden der Eisernen Krone III Klasse mit der Kriegsdekoration - k.u.k. Österr. Militär-Verdienstkreuz III Klasse mit der Kriegsdekoration - Round medal, perhaps the Finn. Erinnerungsmedaille des Freiheitskrieg 1918 ??? (notice the clasp above it!) (since he has the Finn. Freiheitskreuz I. Klasse mit Schwertern) - ??? (perhaps one of his 2 Russian awards?) - Kgl. Preuß. Kaiser Wilhelm-Erinnerungsmedaille 1897 ??? - China Denkmünze in Bronze or Kolonial Denkmünze ??? (he was in Tsingtau, China for three months in 1898) The ribbon above this medal has straight vertical lines, I took this photo with a phone so it doesn't show the lines, but I can see the lines when looking at this photo in the book. - RK II. Klasse des Kgl. Sächs. Albrechts-Ordens Here is the full list of his awards from Rangliste 1914 and 1918: - 1914 EK I - 1914 EK II - Kgl. Preuß. Kaiser Wilhelm-Erinnerungsmedaille 1797-1897 (“Centenarmedaille”) - Russischer St. Annen-Orden III. Klasse - Russischer St. Stanislaus-Orden II. Klasse - Kgl. Preuß. Roter Adler-Orden IV. Klasse - Kgl. Preuß. Kronen-Orden III. Klasse - RK II. Klasse des Kgl. Sächs. Albrechts-Ordens - Komtur I. Klasse des Kgl. Württembg. Friedrichs-Ordens mit Schwertern - Braunschweigisches Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse - Braunschweigisches Kriegsverdienstkreuz I. Klasse - Türkischer Eiserner Halbmond - Kgl. Preuß. Dienstauszeichnungskreuz - Hanseatenkreuz Hamburg Presumably he also had: - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Finn. Freiheitskreuz I. Klasse mit Schwertern (3rd medal around the neck) - Finn. Erinnerungsmedaille des Freiheitskrieg 1918 (because he recieved the Finn. Freiheitskreuz I. Klasse mit Schwertern, also I don't know if he's wearing it on the photo) - Kgl. Preuß. Kronen-Orden II. Klasse mit Schwertern (around the neck, first medal) - Hanseatenkreuz Bremen (not listed in the 1918 Rangliste, but perhaps he recieved it after 1918, we can't check because he retired in 1920) It seems he didn't mount the 2 Russian awards he had and also the Kgl. Preuß. Dienstauszeichnungskreuz? I can try and take a better photo from the book if needed. And please do correct me if I made any mistakes! Thanks!
  16. Does someone know which class of the Yugoslav Order of St. Sava this is? The ribbon bar belongs to Vizeadmiral Hans-Erich Voss. Thanks.
  17. 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!

    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).
  19. Kriegsmarine Admiral

    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?

    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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
