  1. We could find in the Doorn archive: HOH2bX 27.1.1924 von Dommes, General á la suite Generalmajor, Potsdam 25.8.1925 Mewes, Flügeladjutanten Major 14.3.1926 von Kleist, Flügeladjutant Oberst 24.12.1927 von Unruh, Generalmajor, Regensburg 27.1.1928 von Sell, Freiherr HOH2aX 15.6.1928 Graf von Platen-Hallermund, Vizeadmiral und Hofmarschall, Berlin With a total of 151 persons over all classes to be found and a total of 349 awards declared by the Royal House of Hohenzollern towards German authorities in 134 we can estimate a number of about 10 HOH2a/bX. Two of them (v. Gontard and Mewes) are to be seen here:
  2. The advancement in the German armies follows the principle of seniority and capability. The seniority was well-defined by the date of enlistment as an officer in the army. The capability for the next higher level of rank was judged by the commander of an officer. From the beginning of the 19th century the German armies developed specific regulations who, when and with what content these Qualifkationsberichte had to issue. For more information about this complex theme I can recommend the book Untersuchungen zur Geschichte des Offizierskorps / Anciennität und Beförderung nach Leistung, Stuttgart 1962. Regards, Komtur.
  3. On this site about the Crimea War Medal is stated: Fraudulently named medals to the highly desirable Light Brigade Chargers, the Heavy Brigade, 93rd Foot (Thin Red Line) have been faked with engraved or regimentally impressed naming. Could someone please show me, how especially the faked regimentally impressed namings look like? Thanks in advance, Komtur. over the years - Caveat Emptor !

  5. Many thanks for this very interesting addition. It shows, that there was a notification of the serial number of the order on the Orders Chancellery papers. As mentioned above, it therefore should be easy for the office staff, to correlate a numbered insignia to a person - if they condescend to do so ... Kind regards, Komtur.
  6. The nice group of the Honorary Member 5th Class of the Royal Victorian Order for the station master at Homburg v. d. H. Rudolph Stirn brought me again to the point, to speculate about the numbering of this order. Because of the often personalized British decoration, it is possible to relate the numbering of this order in medal groups to a person and a awarding date. More difficult is the situation for Honorary Members, where we need more information by documents, as e. g. we have for Rudolph Stirn. There already seems to exist lists, where collectors tried to relate these numbers to awarding dates. Unfortunately I was not able to get access to these lists. Surprisingly it was possible in a relatively short time, to find a few personalized groups of Knights and Members of the Royal Victorian Order by searching the internet. I arranged these by the awarding date. In this way one get a frame work of some use for ranging a numbered order referring its fabrication period. Especially for groups of Honorary Members it can help to identify the owner by using other sources. Numbers not fitting in the numerical order could be the result of returned and again issued insignia. On the other hand it is not certain, if the Orders Chancellery dispense the decorations always and in consequence by the numerical order of the insignia. The emission dates of the insignia marked with No. 1 is taken from the book The Royal Victorian Order by Peter Galloway. I would be glad, if someone could add the still existing lists or single data of other personalized groups of numbered Royal Victorian Orders.
