  1. These two pieces of paper come from the book "Deutschlands Admirale 1849-1945, Band 3" by Hans Hildebrand and Ernest Henriot. They don't reveal anything about his decorations.
  2. Hello Sandro, I am not Komtur. Here is a screenshot from the Weitze website about this ribbon bar. Thanks for the comment. I agree this bar doesn't seem to belong to Otto Philipp. The award list comes from the 1914 Rangliste. Philipp was a z.D. officer during WW1 and he is not listed in the 1916 and 1918 Rangliste. Is it possible the Saxony, St Heinrich knight and Friedrichsorden knight 2nd class with swords were awarded during wartime?
  3. I found this ribbon bar attributed to Konteradmiral Otto Philipp on Weitze. Can anyone confirm it is indeed his ribbon bar? Some awards fit, but this looks to be a post-WW1 bar. Here are my guesses: - Eisernes Kreuz (1914) 2. Klasse - Königlich Preußischer Roter Adler-Orden 4. Klasse mit der Krone (the Crown is missing) - ??? - ??? - ??? - China-Denkmünze in Bronze - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer (the Swords are missing) - Königlich Preußische Kaiser Wilhelm-Centenarmedaille 1897 Could the 3rd ribbon be the Prussian Order of the Crown 2nd Cl
  4. The KO2x could be hidden because of the angle he is facing. See how on the left photo his KO2x is partly hidden by his uniform. If you don't think it's Natzmer on the right photo, just compare the ears. They are identical.
  5. I have two photos of Natzmer, one from the book "Deutschlands Admirale" and the other one is from the ceremony of the opening of the Naval Memorial in Laboe on 30 May 1936. I think there is no doubt they are the same person? Anyway, I need help in identifying the medals on his medal bar. This would help me confirm the ID of him as Natzmer, and also match his known awards from the Rangliste and the seeoffiziere Gesamtliste. His list of awards I have: -Königlich Preußischer Kronen-Orden 2. Klasse mit Schwertern am Zweimal Schwarz- und Dreimal Weiß-Gestreiften Bande (22. 01. 1918)
  6. I already posted this in the "Turkey" section asking for help in regards to his Turkish awards. Now I need help with the 2nd and 3rd ribbons that are surely German. His list of awards I have: -Königlich Preußischer Kronen-Orden 1. Klasse mit Schwertern (16. 10. 1917) -Königlich Preußischer Roter Adler-Orden 2. Klasse mit Eichenlaub, Schwertern und Stern mit Eichenlaub und Schwertern (16. 03. 1917) -Königlich Preußischer Kronen-Orden 2. Klasse mit dem Stern (29. 08. 1910) -Eisernes Kreuz (1914) 1. Klasse -Eisernes Kreuz (1914) 2. Klasse -Königlich Preußische Kaiser Wilh
  7. Thank you Johan! Are the last two medals the Finnish Silver Medal for Bravery and the Finnish Commemorative Medal of the "War of Liberation"?
  8. Thank you Dave! And what about the badge below the EKI? Is that the Marineverwundetenabzeichen (1918) in Schwarz?
  9. Hello, please help me ID the awards on the ribbon bar of Vizeadmiral Andreas Michelsen. The photo was taken in 1919. His list of awards I have from the 1914 and 1918 Rangliste and seeoffiziere Gesamtliste: -Pour le Mérite am 31. 05. 1918 als Kommodore und Kapitän zur See und Befehlshaber der Unterseeboote -Königlich Preußischer Kronen-Orden 2. Klasse mit Schwertern (02. 11. 1916) -Ritterkreuz des Königlich Preußischen Hausordens von Hohenzollern mit Schwertern (01. 08. 1916) -Eisernes Kreuz (1914) 1. Klasse -Eisernes Kreuz (1914) 2. Klasse -Königlich Preußische Kaiser Wilhe
  10. Thank you Pierce! What about the 2nd and 3rd ribbons? They are surely German. Any guesses?
  11. You mean we would see the Breast Star on other photos of him? I think you are right. Can you comment on the ribbon bar? 1-9? And tell me if you agree with my ID?
  12. Here is a close-up of the ribbons from the first photo. 1: Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class 2: something with Swords 3: something with Swords (not a Turkish medal like you said) 4: something Turkish with Swords (Gold Imtiyaz?) 5: something Turkish with Swords (Gold Liyakat?) 6: something Turkish with Swords (Silver İmtiyaz?) 7: something Turkish with Swords (Silver Liyakat?) 8: I think this is the Ottoman War Medal? 9: possibly the Austro-Hungarian Military Merit Cross 3rd Class with War Decoration But how would you see the Breast Star on t
  13. Here is the full list of awards from the 1914 and 1918 Rangliste and the seeoffiziere Gesamtliste: -Königlich Preußischer Kronen-Orden 2. Klasse (06. 06. 1912) -Eisernes Kreuz (1914) 1. Klasse -Eisernes Kreuz (1914) 2. Klasse -Königlich Preußische Kaiser Wilhelm-Centenarmedaille 1897 -China-Denkmünze in Bronze -Königlich Preußischer Roter Adler-Orden 3.
