Last week I spent some days in Hamburg.... in the habour is a sailing ship , the Rickmer Rickmers , which is today a museum and a restaurant.

In the museum there is a painting of the man who gave this ship his name : Rickmer Clasen Rickmers , a reeder from Hamburg if I understood everything correct.... interesting for us are the orders the man wears on this painting!!!

Hello Heiko!

That would probably be the easy way out, four days of going walkie! It?s the bike orderly medal of the

4-daagse in Nijmegen on the picture, not the marching cross, but for some reason it seems like the

suspender of the cross is used on this medal.

The founder of the shipping dynasty (his ships were used to transport German troops to Georgia in August 1918-- at the REQUEST of the government there) is wearing a Prussian Crown Order 3rd Class on the ribbon given for war aid in 1870/71 (no Red Cross on the upper arm of the Cross itself), then a British Order of Saints Michael & George (!!!!) normally given for long years in the colonies, then what looks like a Mecklenburg Military Merit Cross with no more correct ribbon.
