    Help with the ID of Austro-Hungarian awards of Croatian WW2 Generals

    Thanks. Here is a better photo.
  5. I want to start this thread to help anyone with identifying Kriegsmarine Admirals from photos. If you need help with unknown Admirals please post them here. I am starting this thread in hope that members of the forum will share with us their photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals. You can also post any photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals you have, that show already identified Admirals. I also have a number of photos with unknown Admirals I need help with (I will be posting them here), so if you have any idea who they might be please share your thoughts. Thank you
  6. Unknown #3 Does anyone recognize this Konteradmiral? Or the place where the photos were taken? The officer far left on the 3rd photo is Kapitän zur See (Ing.) Ernst Dorn, Kommandeur Kriegsschiffbaulehrabteilung für Unterseeboote Nord (6. Kriegsschiffbaulehrabteilung) (he can also be seen on the last photo, in the center). Thanks
  7. Hello, does someone have the digital version of the 1927 Reichsmarine Rangliste? That's the only one I'm missing. I can offer the others for exchange. Feel free to contact me through personal messages here on the forum. Thanks
  8. Unknown #1 (above) is Konteradmiral Walther Oehler. Unknown #2 Does anyone recognize this Vizeadmiral?
  9. What's this award of Char. Vizeadmiral Max Looff?
  10. Hello, no one was able to help me on the Central & Eastern European States thread so I will try here. Can someone help me determine the class of the Bulgarian Order of Military Merit from the last ribbon on this uniform? The uniform belonged to a German WW2 Vizeadmiral, Kurt von dem Borne. The device on the ribbon seems to be a crown and swords? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  11. Great! I can see that is the naval wound badge in gold? Is it confirmed his? Thanks

    Unknown Italian neck award

    Hello. Can someone tell me what is this Italian neck award worn by Karl Dönitz? And what class of the award? Thanks
  13. Kriegsmarine Admiral

    Unknown Italian neck award

    These 3 photos show Grossadmiral Erich Raeder. I can't see Dönitz on any of the photos.
  14. I doubt it. I think the naval wound badge makes the most sense. He was wounded in WW1 after all.
  15. Looff wasn't active in WW2. He retired in 1922. And he was Placed at the disposal of the Kriegsmarine without being mobilised on 24 May 1939. I highly doubt he would get the anti-partisan badge.
  16. Thank you guys. Would you say the wound badge is the black or silver version?
  17. How does a cut-out naval wound badge look like?
  18. On the only photo of him I have, he is not yet wearing the ribbon of the Bulgarian Order of Military Merit. On that photo he is a Konteradmiral. So he had to recieve it either as Konteradmiral or Vizeadmiral.
  19. Hello. Can you please help me identify the awards of Vizeadmiral Lamprecht from his ribbon bar. I am most interested in the foreign awards in the second row. His list of awards I have: -Eisernes Kreuz (1914) II. Klasse -Eisernes Kreuz (1914) I. Klasse -Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz -U-Bootskriegsabzeichen (1918) -Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer -Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung IV. bis I. Klasse -Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz II. Klasse -Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz I. Klasse -Kriegsabzeichen für Minensuch-, U-Boots-Jagd- und Sicherungsverbände My ID of the ribbon bar: First row: - Eisernes Kreuz (1914) II. Klasse mit 1939 Spange - Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung I. Klasse - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung III. Klasse - ??? (not visible unfortunately) Second row: - ??? (rosette device) - ??? (rosette device) - Großoffizierskreuz des Königliche Orden der Krone von Italien (I was told this is the ribbon on another forum) Thanks

    Unknown Italian neck award

    Here is another photo. Does it confirm it is the Order of Savoy?
  21. Kriegsmarine Admiral

    Unknown Italian neck award

    They are Italians yes.
  22. Kriegsmarine Admiral

    Unknown Italian neck award

    Thanks. Could it also be the Commander's Cross of the Order of the Saints Maurice and Lazarus?
  23. Sorry, this is the only photo I have. Maybe you can try and zoom in? I was told it could be the Commander Class, since Borne was a Vizeadmiral?
  24. To kick off the thread. Unknown #1 Does anyone recognize this Konteradmiral in the middle?
