The other one is Kapitänleutnant der Seewehr 1. Aufgebots Lübcke at this time he only is listed with LD 1

Interesting medal bar, the unofficial commemorative medal is especially nice! Strange that he had no other decoration, I would´ve at least expected a Verdienstkreuz für Kriegshilfe or maybe (I say maybe!) a Kronen-Orden IV. Klasse!

Harry Lübcke is listed in the 1912-1913 Landwehrbezirk Hamburg Rang-Liste as a captain in the Hamburg-Amerika Linie with seniority as a Kapitänleutnant der Seewehr of 22.8.07 and living at Arndtstraße 21. The Naval Ehrenrangliste has him in the Dutch East Indies at the outbreak of war where he was placed at the disposal of the consulate in Batavia. It appears he spent a spell in the clink there on account of activities against the neutrality of his hosts!
