  1. Thanks Vince but I didn’t buy the KC ... interesting 1.9 k (1900) viewings and 2 comments... 🤔
  2. Thanks a lot, Komtur. Your picture clearly depicts Prince Henry of Prussia after 1897 and before the coronation of King Edward VII in 1902. Great photo, showing great details. I would venture to say that on the previous bar (yours), you can see the following medals (10): Preussen, RAO 3. Klasse mit Krone; Preussen, KO 3. Klasse ; Preussen, Offiziers-DA für 25 Dienstjahre; Hohenzollern, Fürstlich Hohenzollernscher Hausorden, Ehrenkreuz 2. Klasse mit Krone; Preussen, Goldene Hochzeitsmedaille 1879, 1. Klasse in Gold mit Emaille (OEK 1897); Preussen, Ze
  3. Dear forumites, I would like to show an interesting portrait photo of Grossadmiral Prinz Heinrich von Preussen with his medal bar. He wore different combinations of medal bars during his life. Any thoughts of the medals he's wearing on his first medal bar here below depicted? ? Preussen, RAO 3. Klasse mit Krone; Preussen, KO 3. Klasse ; Preussen, Offiziers-DA für 25 Dienstjahre; Hohenzollern, Fürstlich Hohenzollernscher Hausorden, Ehrenkreuz 2. Klasse mit Krone; Preussen, Goldene Hochzeitsmedaille 1879, 1. Klasse in Gold mit Ema
  4. Dear forumites, I’m not sure if Generalmajor der Polizei Hans Daeuwel’s HHOX was already mentioned in this thread: I’m however still missing the date of bestowal for his HHOX. Cheers, Claudio
  5. Generalfeldmarschall Milch was also Jewish... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhard_Milch There were also other Generals and senior officer who had Jewish blood in their veins. https://www.amazon.com/Hitlers-Jewish-Soldiers-Descent-Military/dp/0700613587 https://oe1.orf.at/artikel/205907/Hitlers-juedische-Soldaten http://www.ggg-laupheim.de/Berichte von Mitgl/Judische Soldaten/Juedische Soldaten.htm https://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?p=2193809
  6. I found some other interesting pictures of Duesterberg... interesting political career, which finally was compromised by the discovery of his Jewish b his political opponents: During the 1932 presidential elections, the Nazis went out of their way to taunt Duesterberg for having Jewish ancestry with Joseph Goebbels and Richard Walther Darré being especially vicious in their attacks. Duesterberg was so hurt by Darré's attacks that he challenged him to a duel, a challenge that Darré rejected because it was beneath him to fight a man with “Jewish blood”. Duesterberg then took up his dispute
  7. Thanks Dave! I’m wondering what kind of insignias (Just mere Infantry or Battallion/Regimental commander?) is wearing as a major here (I don’t see any pips), very likely in the the end of the war or early 20ies in the Weimar Republic serving in 100’000 men post war army.

  8. Dear Forumites! First of I wanted already excuse to have used this beautiful photo from a website. This portrait shows a senior, to me not identified, German officer wearing an impressive medal bar and especially a beautiful Breast Star of the Tamara order, which this very one seems to be a very nice high quality piece (brilliantierter Bruststern). The medals on bar are IMHO the following: 1) Pr EK2 1914 2) Pr HHOX 3) Pr KO4X 4) Pr DA 25J 5) China Med mit 2 Gefechtsspangen 6) Pr Zentenar Med 7) Bay MVO4 Kr&X 8.) Würt KO RK mit X 9) Wür
  9. I found a photo of Viktor when he saw service right in the beginning of the German unification war (1864) against the Danes … http://www.museen-nord.de/Objekt/DE-MUS-076111/lido/P8-R-141 Viktor Freiherr von Rheinbaben, geb. 8.8.1844 in Petkus, gest. 28.4.1919 in Sandfort 1864 Leutnant im 3. Garderegiment zu Fuß. Handschriftlicher Text auf der Rückseite: Freiherr von Rheinbaben Seconde Lieutenant im 3. Garde Regiment zu Fuß, nahm bei der 2. Kompagnie am Feldzuge 1864 teil.

  10. Allgemeines Ehrenzeichen (Preussen) I don’t think that the AEZ medal was ever given with swords, I think it was rather unofficially “upgraded” by the wearer. https://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsche-staaten/allgemeines-ehrenzeichen-2-klasse-1814.html
