Crownorder on the ribbon of the lifesaving medal

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow collectors

I was reading the topic on the unknown badge of Char. Vizeadmiral Max Looff and I was quite intrigued by his picture so I starting doing some research on him. I found a picture of him from just after the war and I noticed he had the crownorder and the lebensrettungsmedaille, both on the ribbon of the lebensrettungsmedaille (indicating he got the decorations atleast twice). When I see pictures of an officer/soldier wearing a KO on the ribbon of the life-savingmedal it always seems to be someone attached to the German navy. I have two questions, when did Max Looff get his KO on the life-saving ribbon, and did the navy in fact have a higher percentage of people with the KO on life-saving ribbon than the army? For those who might be interested, the second picture is Felix, Graf von Luckner, who's service during the war seems more alike to that of a pirate than that of a naval officer.

Kind regards, and thanks in advance, Laurentius
