Unknown class of the Portugese Military Order of Aviz

Recommended Posts

Hello. Can someone tell me what is this class of the Military Order of Aviz?

The man wearing it is General der Flakartillerie Ludwig von Schröder.

The english wiki says that the Grand Cross, Grand Officer and Commander classes all had the breast stars.

Thanks

As a star only it should be 2nd class. However if he has omitted the sash badge it would be Grand Cordon the stats are identical in both classes.

Going stir crazy in St Thomas' hospitai.

I think the sash would be worn only on ceremonial occasions. This photo seems like an ordinary studio portrait. The Grand Cross would make sense since it says on the wiki: "Major Generals, Lieutenant Generals, Generals, Vice-Admirals and Admirals: Grand Cross."

If it was the 2nd Class (i.e. Grand Officer) I pressume he would also wear the badge of the Order on a necklet, but he clearly doesn't.
