  2. The Ministry of Defence directive 19/2004, approving the "Reconstitution Plan of the Royal and Military Order of San Fernando” intends to draw together a digital archive comprising scanned copies of the dispersed archives, to make it available to historians, researchers, family members and the general public, so giving rise to a greater knowledge of this prestigious Order. The Administrative Unit of the Royal and Military Orders of San Hermenegildo and San Fernando, has a Documentation Centre, to which I have been assigned since August 1, which among others, has the following tasks: · Look after and update the links and records of all those belonging to the Order, both those of San Fernando and Military Medals. · Collect data, bibliography and the many documents and publications that affect the Royal and Military Order of San Fernando or its members. · Keep the statistics of the military units, centres and organizations that hold the collective Laureada or the Military Medal, and the history and data related to their concession. For this, a few years ago, work began on a database of all the components of the Order in its history. It may seem strange that there was no longer a general archive, but this is because of the historical changes experienced by the Order, and other conditions. The invaluable collaboration of researchers in different specialized publications has already paid off, serving as a start and still providing information in the aforementioned database. From the usual primary sources such as gazettes, bulletins and legislative resources, digital copies have already been obtained from the military archives, but the aim is to improve it, both in the quantity and quality of the contents. Knowing that there is information in private and lesser-known collections and archives, we request all those who have any data or document that they consider of interest, that they send it to this Centre for evaluation and comparison, and where appropriate, for it to be included in the database. Specifically, they are mainly interested in: · Certificates or other award documentation · Lists of decorations awarded and relationship to the recipients of the awards · Personal correspondence · Service papers · Iconography · Digital archives on the Internet · Bibliography on the Order, particularly personal effects Therefore, I invite you to send the relevant documents scanned at a sufficient resolution to allow clear viewing, to the email address apribar@et.mde.es and / or realesymilitaresordenes@oc.mde.es Safe receipt will be confirmed. In the same way, the aforementioned queries relating to this Order may arise in carrying out one’s duties. I would like to thank all historians, volunteers and collectors of the Order for their selfless help, and I remain at your disposal with warm regards. http://www.rmo.mde.es/
  3. By royal order of November 16, 1928, the King of Spain has been pleased to grant the decorations that are expressed at the head of each one, for the attentions received by Kiel on the occasion of the last trip to Sweden: Grand Cross of Naval Merit, with white badge, to Vice Admirals Mr. Oldekop and Raeder and Rear Admiral Mr. Wulfingv. The sash with a white cross pending a plaque with wite arms and a anchor
  4. Yes, the classes of the Naval Order of Merit since 1866 type were: Grand Cross (4th Class), 3rd Class, 2nd Class, 1st Class and Silver Cross (since 1871) Only changes the crown in some periods: Royal crown: monarchie 1866-1871, 1874-1931, 1977-today Mural crown: republican peridods: 1871-1874 and 1931-1939 (spanish civil war, in use in republican zone up to 1.4.1939) Imperial crown: general Franco dictadure: 1938-1977 The 2nd Class had the Silver Breast Star (1931-1938) as the photo I dont have idea about #3 on the first photo, will be the Spanish Order of Military Merit, but I dont sure. The image does not allow to see the details
  5. Yes, I believe that the #1 on the first photo and the breast star on the second photo are the Spanish Order of Naval Merit 2nd Class, white divisionm type 1931-1938 I can't see the crown in the first picture In the second photo I think I see the mural crown, which would correspond to the concession in 1932. This crown would cease to be used in Spain from 1938, moving it through another open royal also known as imperial, which in turn would be used until 1977 Attached the type of 1931-1938
  6. EVERT GUSTAV WALDEMAR BECKER (Helsinki, 1840-Rome, 1907) His military career took him to many different destinations. He served in Poland as a sub-lieutenant of the Finnish Guard and goes to Spain to fight in the war of Morocco, where he participates in the clashes of Spanish troops against the Moroccan rebels in 1859-1860. For his bravery on the battlefield Becker gets the Cross of San Fernando He collaborates in Mexico's civil war. In Greece's campaign against the Turks. In Egypt in favor of Ismael Pacha, who names Bey and in Serbia reaches the rank of Major Staff Colonel There are pictures of him in the Serbian uniform, where he can see, among other decorations, the Cross of San Fernando and the Medal of Africa of 1860 Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain more information in Finnish or Serbian (or others) files about this person?
  7. I found your image and the cross number 1 on the fitst photo and the breast star of the second cross I believe that are the same, a cross of 2nd class In other forums include the meda bar of Joachim Lietzmann and have perhaps a spanish Military Merit Cross with red badge
  8. At this time, I only found in the Marine Gazette the concession of the Cross of 2nd class to Joachim Lietzmann and Paul Weber in 23.1.1932 I belive that the number 2 are not spanish This is a 2nd Cross up to 4.931. The 1932 model has a republican crown, not a royal crown
