RAO3mSchl to the governor of German-New-Guinea

Recommended Posts


after posting some photos, I wish to post this nice and rare certificate to the governor of German-New-Guinea!! Rudolf von Bennigsen was the first governor of German-New-Guinea.

Von Bennigsen served also in German-Eastafrica (as a financial director) and introduced the so-called "Hüttensteuer" in 1897. In German-Eastafrica he was also the deputy of the governor.

In 1901 ended his career as a governor. May be he received the RAO3mSchl for his adoption?

Here is a nice link of Rudolf von Bennigsen. Unfortunately only in german:


In the Rank lists of 1902 we can find the following decorations:




Best wishes


P.S: Sorry I tried it several times but I couldn´t post a scan with higher solution. So I hope that this one is good enough
