  1. Hello all, I need your help.... Anyone has a photo of Friedrich Schultz, Konteradmiral and Vizeadmiral during ww1??? He was commander of 2. and 1. Marine Division, and before the war for example commander of SMS VINETA.... I am not able to find any photo in the net... It doesn't matter if he is young or old in your photo... Hope someone has a Pic Thanks for your help Heiko
  2. Hi Karsten, in 1916 his award docs etc... have been sold by HH, did you get them there? In the auction description a personal diary is mentioned... Maybe there are some informations included. By the way, the auction title calls him "Oberst"
  3. Interesting....it seems that the forst ribbon was a full size ribbon that has been cut in the middle to fit the ribbon bar size
  4. I am no expert in these things but they look great really great... Congrats on that and keep them in the family
  5. Mira when you find the time it would be great to show us these items from the China time you have in the family
  6. Mira that info from his Bremen address is from the adressbook of the Marine Offiziers Verein in which he was a member. That was my thinking too... He got the bear with swords for complete being in China... I think there were not too many men from Anhalt - if it was for a special combat action I would expect a KO4X too...not only the award from his home state
  7. Think so...must have been between the second half of 1890 and the first half of 1891....in the 1890 ranklist there is no one with this order and in the 1891 ranklist there are 3 officers of the regiment with Persia sun and lion
  8. a bit off topic...but just for illustration - another little Waldeck-Persia-combo... Regimentsadjudant Premier-Lieutenant von Lengerke IR83
  9. After the war he was in Bremen as Teilhaber (co-owner) of the Zigarrenfabrik Gerbrüder Bornemann He lived in Delbrückstr.10 in Bremen
  10. Mira, yes this is what he did during the ww1... But it is not an U it is an A... It means Reichs-Marine-Amt
  11. Hello Mira, back as promised.... That`s what we are doing....collecting and researching , digging out the details from the dust of history. The informations of the orders and awards given to your great-grandpa are from so called Ranglisten , in these lists all the officers of the army and the navy were listed , with their ranks and positions and with the awards they got - the only small problem is that Prussian Ranglisten only showed the real orders , not awards or simple medals for some wars for example. Then we have another source to use , it is the DOA (Deutscher Ordens
  12. Hi Mira, don`t know if you know all the orders and awards your great-grandpa got during his career....so here are some of them , the late war awards from the Finland time are not listed here so maybe he have got some more.... hope this helps a bit... all the best Heiko this is from 1908 this is from 1914 and this from 1918
