Thats a fantastic piece Mikko !

 

One of the nicest I´ve seen :jumping:

 

Even if reserach going on I give a couple of more names just to check if I´m right :unsure:

 

Liberty Cross 1st Class without Swords with Breast Star 1918 2 awarded

 

Lauri J Ingman

Pehr E Svinhufvud

 

Both Finnish Politicians.

 

One thing I learned the last days is that my numbers for awarded Liberty Crosses is far to low :cheeky:

I thought there where only 509 3rd class 1918 awarded but the real numbers must be more than 1000 !

 

Also 2nd Class 1918 I thought 152 awarded but the real numbers is closer to 300 , they are not so rare as I thought.

 

The same goes probably for 4th class , I already seen that I have more names for 4th classes wo X and with Red Cross then I thought was awarded in total. It will be interesting to see the final numbers someday.

Hi all,

Could the wearer of this unnamed ribbon bar have been one of those 2nd class 1918 ricipients?

Regards. Peter

Wow again, the newest and probably most true award numbers on Liberty Crosse 2nd Class is 271 awarded

And 102 to Germans so your bar is one of 102 :)  1 to a Bavarian , and 2 to Saxon officers so that leave us with 99 possible

Looks that he has Army Long Service medals which means that the 60 Navy officers could be ruled out so we are down to 39 possible.

The Oldenburg Cross could pont to Oldenburg Dragon Rgt 19 who was in Finland 1918.

Here is some names of Germans with Liberty Cross 2nd 1918

Graf von Bernstoff   - Had Austrian Merit Cross

Georg Carp ?  

Hans Karl von Esebeck ?

Nikolaus von Falkenhorst

William Halling  - Had other Awards 

Adolf Hauger 

Ludwig Heckmann

dr Theodor Heynemann  - Bavarian , had other wards 

Ernest Moritz von Kaisenberg - Had other awards

Benedict Kreutz 

Arthur Lehmann

Christian Mathes 

Ludwig Müller - Had other Awards 

Martin Otto

Otto Scheferling

Hans Schenk zu Schweinsberg

Hans Siebold

Otto Theim 

 

If we can find what awards these officers above had maybe we can shorten the list even more .

Lovely ribbon bar Peter! :)  I don't think we can know for sure if this is a WW1 2nd Class or WW2 awarded grand cross, first class or second class decoration. The ribbons were the same.

P.S. You cannot count out the Kriegsmarine. As Andreas says, the eagle devices were the same as the Heer.

Hi all, thanks for all the info.

Some good points have been put forward. It's an interesting combo. The Oldenburg cross makes me think it's a naval officer, but the Westwall medal and the field-grey backing makes me think it is Heer... :banger:

Do we know of any full lists of names for the 2nd class 1918 and/or the 2nd and higher classes for the 41+ recipients?

On a different note, does anyone have a spare device for a ribbon bar for a 3rd or 4th class cross? This bar came without....

Regards. Peter

Hi Peter,

Certainly there were many Heer officers with the Oldenburg FA Cross. The West Wall and the field-gre backing made me think Heer as well.

I like your other bar also.  :) Good luck finding a device for it.

As far as i know, the fourth medal was awarded decades after 1917/18

 

This thread doesn't mention when the medals were issues, only that the recipient list was still reviewed up to 1961!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
