Hello Gents,

another Musikmeister and my question is, is it possible to identify him and

which medal is on the 3rd place ?

The photo is taken in Metz and on his medal bar he is wearing :

- Bavarian Militärverdienstkreuz

- Rother Adlerorden Medaille

- ???

- Centenarmedaille

In this photograph probably the Württemberg Friedrich Order Gold Medal.


Thanks Glenn,

is in the Militär - Musiker - Almach mentioned which medals he got. I can´t

recognize his 3rd award on the bar.

But the medal from the Friedrichsorden has a light blue ribbon.

This one has side stribes.

Could it be the goldene Verdienstmedaille des Kronenordens ?

In 1913:


Jubiläum Medaille

Bayr. MVKrz

Gold. M. v. Fr.-O

Württ. Silb. VM

Preuß KVM


Krz. d. AE


Krz. d. Haus-O v. Hohenz.


The Almanach uses different abbreviations for the orders but has no key.

he was born 1.2.1854 and startet in the army 1870. He died 17.101916 in a hospital in Metz.

Ancestry shows a bavarian MVK 2 with crown and swords.

On your picture might be a earlier MVK without crown.

Please, show us a bigger picture of the bar.

He got the silver medal for the war 1870 (non combattant)
