  1. Just have seen another one: "Karl von Knoerzer, General der Infanterie, Kommandeur der 26. Division von 1881-1885 (1884?, siehe Rückseite), stehend in Uniform des Grenadier-Regimentes Nr. 119 (Königin Olga), Orden und Degen / 1897" Equaly interesting, his beautiful Degen
  2. According to the "Bekleidungsvorschrift für Offiziere, Sanitätsoffiziere und Veterinäroffiziere des königlich preußischen Heeres" with the kleiner Dienstanzug (small duty dress) had to be worn: PLM, EK1, Jerusalem Cross allowed were: one neck insignia one prussian war order or its ribbon or the ribbon of the Rettungsmedaille (Livesaving medal) in the second buttonhole from above This is from the dress regulations of the prussian army. I don't know the marine one but I think it has similar regulations for the kleiner Dienstanzug So to switch from Dienstanzug (duty dress) zu kleiner Dienstanzug (small duty dress) if one has the EK in the buttonhole he has just to put away the medal bar (at least if you wear the Waffenrock to the kleiner Dienstanzug)?
  3. @RWS Thanks for this very intersting insights - in Austria we have both Malta and Johanniter ambulances driving around @1812 Overture Yes, it seems to be the same person on each picture
  4. I personally would also prefer to wear the EK2 in the buttonhole and not on the medalbar. That underlines its high symbolic value. What do you guys think, was wearing it in the buttonhole only a transition period thing, until the medal bar was updated, or did some guys prefer to wear it that way without the intention to add it to the bar later?

  6. Who is the guy in the last pic? I found this highly interesting old thread, with picture of Zar Ferdinand wearing a black eagle Kleindekoration
  7. Terrific pictures, thanks! Yeah, Wilhelm seems to have worn it a lot, but I don't remember having ever seen someone else wear it.
  8. If you know pictures of the Kleindekoration des Schwarzen Adlerordens in wear feel free to post them. There are some of Kaiser Wilhelm II wearing it: Source: https://www.ottoman-uniforms.com/ww1-ottoman-unidentified-equipment-and-insignia-mixed-turkish-austrian-and-german-uniforms/ (I wonder who wrote that on the postcard)
  9. Side question: Is he wearing the Kleindekoration des Schwarzen Adlerordens? (rarely seen) Also very interesting how he is wearing the trifolds under his ribbon bar
  10. I also have a set in a comparable condition. Is there a number how many of these G.A. Scheid pieces were made?
