I am in the process of scanning my collection of Carte de Visite showing recipients of the 1870 EK2 on the white/black non-combatants ribbon.

Should I post these here, or in the EK forum?

Thanks, Rick

Nice one. There is a list of EKNK awardees, but not enough to go on.

Why not Paul? I think there is a MVO Ritter 2nd class in last position.

Kind regards

I know the second place medal is the 1864 NC Cross, but what are the other medals on this bar???

Can anyone help?

Here's photo 2, another new one. What is the second medal? Hohenzollern?

Given that it is in fact a BMV3b in last position and that our subject is neither a medical officer nor wearing the uniform of a military official and that the photograph was in all probability taken in the 1870s, then the combination is not common at all. Again, if we exclude Zeugoffiziere (he appears to be wearing an infantry officers' uniform), the field really narrows down to one or two possibilities. At the moment, I tending towards Seconde-Lieutenant der Landwehr Karl Wenzelmann. My only reservation, is that I cannot tie him to Berlin.

Hi Stogieman,

I think that it´s the Roter Adler Orden Medaille on the Hohenzollern ribbon.

Unfortunately that will not help in identifying him. This particlular medal is not listed in the Prussian army lists and therefore he could be one of many junior Prussian medical officers with an EK2 on the white band.

I would guess it is him , too. He was working as a Magazin-Rendant and Proviant-Meister and changed between the Armee-Korps.... one year he was assigned to the IV. , one year to the X. ..... why not visiting Berlin sometime ;)

Dr Böhr (Boehr's) entry in the Stammliste of the Kaiser-Wilhelm's Academy. As can be seen from his entry and of course his medals, he was a veteran of both the wars of 1866 and 1870/71. It is fortunate that the good doctor's name was annotated on the rear as this combination of awards would have made an ID otherwise impossible.
