Who is this person wearing the Order of the Dannebrog?

Recommended Posts

Certainly a clerical person of a sort, recognizable by the collar. A bishop is a good guess since he is wearing the Grand Cross of the Dannebrog order (note that clerics wear the Grand Cross badge around the neck and not with a sash).

another point should be that he must be danish as he's wearing the silver merit cross!!

Which is only awarded to danish who already have earned a grade of the dannebrog order.

Please, feel free to correct me.

Kind regards,

Jacky

Jacky,

You are correct that he must be Danish since he wears the Silver Merit Cross (the text under the photo is Danish as well).

One small correction:

The Dannebrog Silver Merit Cross could be awarded to anybody regardless of if they had received a grade of the Dannebrog order or not. After 1952 only recipients of the Dannebrog (i.e. Knights or higher) could receive the Silver Merit Cross.

Herr General,

Does this card by any chance have a date? Anything on the back?
