Maybe on the RAO4/BMVO4mKr/BMVO3XmKr combination, but it will take a LOT of looking at every single Oberstleutnant and Oberst on the BMVO3XmKr list...

and still will come up short on those weird wartime rear area/retiree type Red Eagles like that :love::love::love: with bow the Milit?r Wochenblatt just did not bother listing accurately!

I suspect he will be a zD or recalled aD type rather than an active duty staff officer, because there are no OTHER wartime awards.

I have to go take my heart attack medication now... I'm short of breath after gazing enraptured on THIS beauty!

Andreas,

I can only reduce the list of possible recipients of this medalbar:

Oberst Aquirin Brassart

Oberst Ernst von Chrismar

Oberst Karl Kraemer

Oberstlt von Massow

Bernd

Of those, I think it could only be Brassart. Chrismar and Kraemer did not get a BMVO3XKr, and the v. Massow who did was an iG type with many other awards.

Oberst Brassart was director of the fireworks lab in Spandau. I'm not sure about his first name (Otto Quinn? Quirin? Aquirin?). Can't find any wartime Prussian awards in the MilWochenblatt. But he got the BMVO3XKr on 28.4.1916 and retired as Generalmajor aD. And he was alive in 1935: born 1860, died 1944.

Sorry, but Chrismar received his 3. class with crown and swords 18 Oct 1917 and Kraemer 29 Apr 1917.

May I ask where that information comes from? 'Cause I cannot find them in the lists published by Autengruber.
