All around the life saving medal

Recommended Posts

The life saving medal is way rarer than one would think with all those you see on lists.

An example..... during the war, the huge tomes that comprised the Marineverordnungsblatt listed rules and regulations and instructions to do with eery single part of navy life.

With all the nights crosses and oakleaves and swords and other toys... there was only one award where the name of the recipient was published, in fact, it was the only award mentioned at all 8as opposed to regulations about other awards) and this was the life saving medal. Also published was a congratulations from the head honch at the OKM.

Flipping through there seem to have been 2-3 a year.

Here is the 3rd of a page entry where raeder congratulates the recipient
