  1. House and Merit Order of Peter Friedrich Ludwig Knight Cross 1st class with swords:
  2. Hofamtsrat Oskar Vater Ehrenkreuz 2. Klasse mit Eichenbruch: 22. Januar 1918
  3. Could you please tell me the source of the birth date? Thanks and regards, Komtur

  5. Wilkens got the Colombian decoration for his services in connection with transfering two flying boats of the Dornier Do J type (civil version) from Europe to America. The memory cross on the last position of the bar shows the route of the Central America flight of the Dornier ATLANTICO and PACIFICO in August 1925. On the picture with this two flying boats before starting for this flight Wilkens is to be seen as a member of the crew.
