Hi all,
Can anyone identify the breast star that this Luftwaffe Major is wearing?
I have searched online but couldn't find it...

Thanks a lot,
Matt.

Possibly the China Republican Order of the Striped Tiger.

Not sure what it could be. I'm not sure it is the Chinese one as the one being worn seems to have 10 points whereas the Chinese one has 8 and the tiger seems to be taking up a lot of space in the center whereas it doesn't seem that way in the photo. Maybe another Chinese award - or from another country.

Most likely he has higher class (breast star) of this award from the ministry of communications.

This is a fake breast star.

Original breast star looks like this .

Good work. Certainly rare to see Germans with Chinese Orders!

    • 😄Very good!😄 The only real downside of this whole isolation thing is that I miss having kids still at home. We have grand kids but of course they can not come over nor can we visit and play with them. They are the only soft spot in my cynical personality. 😉 By the way, a group of geese is a gaggle, would a group of grandchildren be a mess?
