  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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
