Awards of Stahlhelmbundfuehrer Theodor Duesterberg


Recommended Posts

Gentlemen, I need your assistance with acquiring info (as complete as possible) on Theodor Duesterberg awards received during the Great War and soon afterwards in Weimar-era Germany.

I have a huge collection of Stahlhelm photos including Duesterberg himself at various meetings and fucnctions but recently I bought an outstanding studio portrait of Steel Helmet leader wearing an impressive array of awards including several foreign (Bulgarian, Turkish, etc.). Thus I'm interested in the complete list of his awards to fill in some blanks in my knowledge of the subject )

The above-mentioned portrait is attached here. I'd be very grateful if you could identify these awards as well except most obvious ones.

And finally remaining neck awards and breast awards and badges.

At the lest side three Ottoman awards: Mecidiye Nişanı and Nişani Osmani (both neck) plus one breast badge - Harb Madalyasi.

At the right side - EK 1.Klasse, Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz and the most remarkable award, Order of Queen Tamara (Georgia).

Number four is the Prussian service decoration (PDA). Number eight is the Württembergian Order of the Crown (WK3). Number ten could be anything as long as it is wartime related. At first I thought it was the Hessian medal for bravery (given it's position next to the HP4x) but this seems inpausible given the colour of the ribbon.

 

Kind regards, Laurentius
