1930s Chinese Order given to German Officers?


Recommended Posts


Recently I was reading about the Chinese visit to Germany in 1937.


The Chinese Finance Minister Kung arrived in Berlin on 9 June 1937.

He visited Hermann Goring on 11 June, Hitler on 13 June and also Generalfeldmarschall Werner von Blomberg that afternoon.


Here in Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel’s memoirs (English Translation) he notes that a “high Chinese Medal†was bestowed on von Blomberg.


I am assuming Herman Goring was given an award also.


Are there any award rolls or record of what this award might have been?

I look forward to any help you can offer, regarding this query. :)


Many thanks
