Medal bar:

• Eisernes Kreuz 2.Klasse
• Roter-Adlerorden 4.Klasse
• Kronenorden 3.Klasse
• Rote-Kreuz-Medaille 2.Klasse
• Dienstauszeichnungskreuz
• Rote-Kreuz-Medaille 3.Klasse
• Südwestafrika-Denkmünze in Stahl
• Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtnismedaille (Centenarmedaille)
• Königlich Bayerischer Militär-Verdienstorden 3.Klasse mit Schwertern am Bande für Kriegsverdienst

• Herzoglich Sachsen-Ernestinischer Hausorden, Ritterkreuz 1.Klasse mit Jahreszahl 1914

• Herzoglich Anhaltisches Friedrichkreuz am grün-weißen Bande
• Großherzoglich Badischer Orden vom Zähringer Löwen, Ritterkreuz 1.Klasse
• Herzoglich Braunschweigischer Orden Heinrichs des Löwen, Ritterkreuz 2.Klasse

The shine on the medals is really high and it's hard to get good look at them in this photo.  However this photo appears to have been taken at about the same time period as the first photo in this thread.   Thanks to Dave's list of awards, we can extrapolate their identity in this photo (with just a slight difference in the ordering). 

In my opinion, that last medal is the Braunschweig Order of the Lion -2nd Klass

Fischer's lower cross looks like Vatican's Pro Ecclesia Pontifice  Cross, established by Leo XIII, July 17, 1888. 

 

As to Schlegel--maybe a Bulgarian Military Bravery Order 4th class, 2nd division with swords just before the Ernestine.

EK I (first german priest with EK I) and II, MVO4, Würtemberg order of merit, austrian Franz-Joseph medal

-MVO am Band für Militärbeamte (on military official´s ribbon)

-Franz Josef Ritter am Kriegsband

-Friedrich 1st with X and later Hindy cross with X

His medal bar is shown in a bavarian museum in Munich.

Foohs also did earn the MVO on the same ribbon.

I also have a few pics of decorated priests.

The pro ecclesia cross is a nice decoration and not so easy to find on bars.

I have had 3 of them. I still have one. It was one of my first bar´s and offered by Militaria Beck.

This guy is gone a long time.

Hi,

far from it, i am afraid. Uniform of Bavarian Landespolizei of which he was their Oberpfarrer

Dr. phil. Josef Schneider (*10.1.93 München, + 21.4.52 München)
Volontary  Militärkrankenwärter, Priesterweihe 22.7.17, Lazarettgeistlicher bei der bayer. 6.Ldw.Div.
EKII, EKI, MVO4 m. Krone u. Schwertern, preuß Rot-Kreuz-Medaille und bayer. Verdienstkreuz für freiw. Krankenpflege im Kriege. Thanks for the above data to the Prussian and another colleague.

My research:

After the war Oberpfarrer der bayrischen Landespolizei, fired by the NSDAP and wrongly (false accusation) convicted for homosexual activities. In prison till 1940. He had held church service for the policemen who died during the Marsch on Feldherrenhalle. That´s why he got fired by the Nazis.

Best,

GreyC

Many years ago I spent far too much time on weekends hanging about a store which sold medals and militaria.  I even worked there one summer and an occasional customer, in Toronto, Canada in the 1980s, was a Lutheran minister who needed to renew the ribbons on his WWII German medals, which he wore on Remembrance Day [November 11th] and possibly on other occasions.

it sure looks CATHOLIC to me!!

Erich Schlegel was not a Roman Catholic. If you are referring to the pectoral cross he is wearing- these were not just worn by Catholic Bishops.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
