Citation for his 3rd class St.George reads

"В воздаяние отличной храбрости и мужества, оказанных во время военных действий германских войск во Франции"

"In retribution of exellent bravery and courage shown during military operations of german forces in France"

Compactly ;)

If I might make a suggestion-- it would be easier for Research Gnomes if you posted each photo as an individual thread--or different photos of the same person in one thread.

Germans in the German section, Austrians in the Austrian section. Lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng threads become unwieldy, and referring back, sometimes many previous posts, gets awkward flipping back and forth.

Easier to react to additional data when one photo/same person is being discussed in one thread.

I've looked at Regierungs- und Oberpolizei-Rat Hans Kenda, for instance (Posts 42, 43, 44) in the 1905 Almanach of Franz Joseph Order recipients, and in the Franz Joseph Order recipients Ehrenbuch of 1909... and he didn't provide us with any birth data or the years of his ther Orders.

And I have photos--for instance of the King of Württemberg etc--different times, different awards... but no point in posting them pages apart in a giant thread. Messy! Confusing!

I'm getting old, things need to be simple....

Born on August 22, 1848 in Görlitz, died on January 14, 1922 in Belgrad

St.Anna and St.Stanislaus are obvious...

But is it 4th class St.George cross?!

Nice photos :)

Here is a high decorated Peking-Veteran. He is wearing at the end of his medal bar the golden russian "Kriegsverdienstmedaille".

Best wishes

Cool photo Karsten!

"Medal for Bravery"/"Медаль за храбрость"

If it is indeed gold medal, then it should be 2nd class ;)

:cheers:
