I thought this would be relatively easy to ID, with the Red Cross Medal for the Russo-Japanese War on it. No such luck, I've scoured the rolls and can't find a match. If anyone has any ideas, I'd like to hear them.

Thanks Scott. I actually can't find any German recipient of the Russian Red Cross Medal for 1904-05 in the award rolls. I suspect this guy was a medical officer attached to the Russian fleet.

Probably a naval medical officer, possibly stationed at Kiautschou during the 1905 war.

I would think ? Were any german ships in the area of any of the engagements?

Nope, these guys would have been stationed at the German mandate, and would have been involved in assisting Russian wounded. If anyone has a Rangliste for the Reichsmarine, maybe they could look up Drs. Doerr and Freyer, both Oberassistenzaertze who received the St. Stanislaus at Kiautschou and who might be the guy.
