    1812 thank you for the above images!

    The 4th funeral image depicts Keitel wearing what appears to be a St. Alexander star, maybe Grand Cross with swords through the center.  Conceivably, he received a St. Alexander in 1941-2 when he liaised closely with the Bulgarians during the Balkan Campaign.  That possibility leaves open what, if any, Bulgarian award with star he and Dönitz may have received at the funeral.  

    Image 7 angle seems to show Dönitz with a Romanian Michael the Brave and pinback awards but in image 5 Dönitz does not appear to wear these.   Suspect that apparent image 7 awards actually relate to the Romanian officer in image 7 back standing behind and to left of Dönitz.   

    These 3 photos show Grossadmiral Erich Raeder. I can't see Dönitz on any of the photos.




  2. Hello. Can you please help me identify the awards of Vizeadmiral Lamprecht from his ribbon bar.

    I am most interested in the foreign awards in the second row.

    -Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer    
    -Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung IV. bis I. Klasse
    -Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz II. Klasse
    -Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz I. Klasse
    -Kriegsabzeichen für Minensuch-, U-Boots-Jagd- und Sicherungsverbände 

    My ID of the ribbon bar:

    First row:
    - Eisernes Kreuz (1914) II. Klasse mit 1939 Spange
    - Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz 
    - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
    - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung I. Klasse
    - Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung III. Klasse

    - Großoffizierskreuz des Königliche Orden der Krone von Italien (I was told this is the ribbon on another forum)

  3. Hello, no one was able to help me on the Central & Eastern European States thread so I will try here.

    Can someone help me determine the class of the Bulgarian Order of Military Merit from the last ribbon on this uniform?

    The uniform belonged to a German WW2 Vizeadmiral, Kurt von dem Borne.

    The device on the ribbon seems to be a crown and swords?

    Any help is appreciated.

  4. Hello Heiko.

    Here is a photo of Schultz from the book "Deutschlands Admirale 1849-1945, Band 3", by Hildebrand & Henriot.

    Sorry for the quality, I took the photo with my phone. It shows Schultz as a Konteradmiral.

    Some info about Schultz's ranks:

    27. 01. 1912 Konteradmiral

    17. 06. 1915 Vizeadmiral

    04. 09. 1919 Charakter als Admiral

    Hello everyone!
    Here is a Narvik inwear image I bought a long time ago. Image is taken in Norway and you see higher KM Officers.
    Hope that more people will continue to keep this thread going.
    Cheers, Morten.

  6. I want to start this thread to help anyone with identifying Kriegsmarine Admirals from photos.

    If you need help with unknown Admirals please post them here.

    I am starting this thread in hope that members of the forum will share with us their photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals.

    You can also post any photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals you have, that show already identified Admirals.

    I also have a number of photos with unknown Admirals I need help with (I will be posting them here), so if you have any idea who they might be please share your thoughts.

    Thank you
