I came across this photo on the internet and thought folks here would be interested. I managed to make a larger image of his wonderful medal bar. :love:

Fregattenkapitän Karl Boy-Ed

14.09.1872 – 14.09.1930

He was naval attaché to the USA before WW1. He was expelled from the US in 1915 amid allegations of espionage and sabotage of munitions industries in the then-neutral US.

Some more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Boy-Ed

He received further decorations for his service during WW1, including the Red Eagle Order, 3rd class with swords & bow.

Boy-Ed retired as Kapitän zur See 28.08.1919.

He died, on his 58th birthday, following a horse riding accident.

Best wishes

Matt
