    Here is another, earlier pic of Wülfing with his medal bar. It seems he changed the precedence of his awards. The one behind the "Finn. Freiheitskreuz 2. Kl." on the ribbon bar above (the one with the lighter color) is in last position on his medal bar. I believe this is the Finnische Tapferkeitsmedaille. 


    I agree it could well be the  Finnische Tapferkeitsmedaille. In Silber right?

    That would make the awards from his medal bar on this photo as following:

    -1914 EK II

    -Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz

    -China Denkmünze

    -Südwestafrika Denkmünze

    -Finn. Freiheitskreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern

    -Erinnerungsmedaille des "Finnischen Freiheitskrieges" 1918 mit Spange

    -Finnische Tapferkeitsmedaille in Silber

    Also, no Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer on this photo because it is pre 1934.

    The last ribbon could be the Grand Cross of the Spanish Order of Naval Merit with White Decoration, seen on the last photo you posted.

  2. Sorry for the bad quality of the pics.

    Konteradmirals Otto Klüber (portrait) and Waldemar Kober (standing on the photo).

    They both recieved the Spainenkreuz, but I don't know the Class? 
    Klüber perhaps the Spanienkreuz in Silber mit Schwertern?
    Kober also? Although he was the Chief Engineer on the Cruiser ‘Nürnberg’, so perhaps ohne Schwertern?

    Also, 2 unknown Awards below their Iron Crosses 1st Class? Klüber's is unfortunately covered by his hand...




  3. Please help me ID the awards of this Vizeadmiral.

    What I have so far:

    1914 EK II
    Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
    Südwestafrika Denkmünze
    China Denkmünze
    Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz
    Finn. Freiheitskreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern
    Erinnerungsmedaille des "Finnischen Freiheitskrieges" 1918 mit Spange

    It is possible the 2 unknown awards are foreign.




  4. Hello. I want to start this topic because I am researching Kriegsmarine Konteradmirals and I require their Awards. I do not own any of the Ranglists that list the Awards (Kaiserliche Marine and Reichsmarine Ranglists) and I really need help from those forum members that do have the Ranglists. 

    I will post the Konteradmiral whose Awards I need on this topic almost every day and I hope someone will be able to help me. 

    I will also post the photo of the Konteradmiral if his ribbon/medal bar is visible and someone might be able to ID some additional Awards that are not listed in the Ranglists.

    To start off, I need the Awards of Konteradmiral Ernst Hintzmann.

    Below are photos with his ribbon bar visible.

    These are the Awards I managed to find:

    -Iron Cross (1914) 1st Class

    -Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class

    -Knight's Cross of the Royal House Order of Hohenzollern with Swords

    -Prussian Order of the Red Eagle 4th Class

    -Mecklenburg Military Merit Cross 2nd Class

    -The Honour Cross of the World War 1914/1918

    -Medal "For Valour in the World War 1914-1918" (Commemorative Medal of the Union of German Naval Veterans Associations) *Note: this one isn't confirmed, but as he was the Chairman of the Union of German Naval Veterans Associations I think he could have been awarded this medal.
