Hi gents,

I have bought this photo quite long ago, but I simply hadn´t any name.
Now in another forum it was maybe identified.

The officer on this photo is wearing at his medalbar (partly identified due to the person):

- Iron cross 1870 2nd class
- order of the red eagle 4th class with swords
- order of the crown 3rd class with swords
- Dueppeler cross 1864
- Alsen cross 1864
- war merit cross 1866 (Mainarmee)
- war merit medal 1864
- war merit medal 1870 / 71
- Lippe Detmold house order 3rd class with swords
- Schaumburg- Lippe military merit medal with sabres on the ribbon

He was 99 % identified as captain Friedrich von / van Beughem Infanterie-Regiment No. 55

He awarded the red eagle order 1866 and the order of the crown 1864 as Sekonde-Lieutnant (!!!) and the Lippe-Detmold house-order in 1871 as Priemierleutnant.
The Schaumburg-medal was also awarded in the war 1870/71.

Best regards
