    1. Does anyone have a picture of U-Boot ace Paul Reinhart von Rabenau, HOH3⚔ on 2 September 1918? Thanks!
    2. Adding Prussian Order of the Crown, 2nd Class with Swords (source: Daniel Krause: Verleihungen von Preußischen Kriegs-Orden und Ehrenzeichen im Ersten Weltkrieg, p. 104)
    3. His known pre-war decorations are: Prussian Centenary Medal 1897 (Zentenarmedaille) Red Eagle Order (Roter Adlerorden), 4th Class (RAO4) Prussian Long Service Cross for 25 years (Königlich Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz) Chilean Order of Merit (Chilenischer Verdienstorden), 2nd Class (CV2) What neck order is he wearing? Maybe Kronenorden, 2nd Class with Swords?
    4. Gentlemen, I am looking for any- and everything about von Roden (1861-1945). His original name was Emmo Maria Max Wellhausen, he was adopted in 1882. He was promoted to Sekondeleutnant on 12 February 1884. After the war, he commanded the Marine-Brigade „von Roden“. Promoted to Generalmajor on 10 February 1921 with RDA from 1 December 1920 (?) I would really love to know, what decorations he earned in WWI. Thanks!

    7. Gentlemen, can anyone identify the general with Knight's Cross? Thanks!
    8. He served with the Stab/Luftzeuggruppe Moskau and with the Feldluftzeuggruppe Finnland, so at least a KVK, maybe even something Finish? You don't happen to have a death date? Thanks! To all: I found a "Josef Ernst Dewies" at ancestry.de. As a non-paying member, they will not let me see the data. If anyone is a paying member, please make a screenshot of the available information. At least we could find out, who he married in Berlin and when.
