Kriegsmarine Admiral

Kriegsmarine Admirals ID thread and photo Database

Recommended Posts

I want to start this thread to help anyone with identifying Kriegsmarine Admirals from photos.

If you need help with unknown Admirals please post them here.

I am starting this thread in hope that members of the forum will share with us their photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals.

You can also post any photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals you have, that show already identified Admirals.

I also have a number of photos with unknown Admirals I need help with (I will be posting them here), so if you have any idea who they might be please share your thoughts.

Thank you

Does anyone recognize this Konteradmiral? Or the place where the photos were taken?
The officer far left on the 3rd photo is Kapitän zur See (Ing.) Ernst Dorn, Kommandeur Kriegsschiffbaulehrabteilung für Unterseeboote Nord (6. Kriegsschiffbaulehrabteilung) (he can also be seen on the last photo, in the center).

Thanks

Does anyone recognize this admiral? His exact rank is unknown (most probably Konteradmiral or perhaps Vizeadmiral). The photo was taken in Oslo, Norway. I can't identify him. If anyone has any ideas please help.

Thank you Larry. The unknown Konteradmiral is Gustav Kieseritzky, later Vizeadmiral.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
