  3. If you ever need award history for other Austro-Hungarian Admirals just drop me a line I will be more than happy to respond.
  4. Hi, I am a bit late in responding, but according to Balla Tibor's book Feldmarschalleutnants FML Marzell Lawrowski von Plöcken did not receive any foreign orders or decorations.

  6. Thank you for posting the pictures of the Statue for the MVK, very useful for future reference.
  7. Most definitely...question asked asked. questioned answered. Thank you all.
  8. Graf, Spot on and that is what confused me as I had never seen photos anyone for the A-H army wearing the MVK 3. on the red ribbon. IndEed you are correct regarding this and other forums.
  9. Thanks. I had seen an MVK.3 on a red ribbon (eBay I think?), obviously wrong as I now understand.
  10. Graham, Many thanks for the very useful links.
  11. Hi Christian, Just so I am 100% certain...the MVK was never issued on the plain red ribbon, but always on the 'war' ribbon. Regards, Ian
  12. Gentlemen, This has confused me for some time and a search on the internet and in this forum has, so far, failed to provide me with a satisfactory answer. For what reason(s) would a peace time MVK 3. be issued on the war ribbon?
  13. Not a very accurate source I know, but I thought they might have gotten some information correct. Sorry.
  14. This may be of use. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_von_Randow
