1. EK2

2. Fürstlich Reußisches Ehrenkreuz 3. Klasse mit der Krone und Schwertern

3. probably Mecklenburg-Schwerinsches Militärverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse

4. HH

5. LüH

6. BremH

7. ??

He was an Ordonnanz-Offizier in the IX. Reservekorps, which accounts for the various Hanseatic and Mecklenburg awards. I assume 3 is the MMV2 and not the Strelitz cross, which had the same ribbon, because he is not in the Strelitz roll and we are missing many late war Schwerin awards which were not published in the Regierungsblatt.  The 1919 KR 2 Stammliste only lists Hamburg, Lübeck and Reuß among his wartime non-Prussian awards. 

I have no idea what the last one is. It might be Finnish, but he is not in the Ostsee-Division officer list and he's not Navy, so I don't know of any connection between him and the Finnish campaign.

I agree with Dave. For the last ribbon I was thinking about the Finnish freedomcross or perhaps the Olympia-medaille. The picture is post-1933. We are missing the FEK, so I'm not 100% on board with the Olympia-medaille.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Yeah, the FEK seems like an odd omission. In any event, this ribbon bar likely only lasted a few more months, since he was an E-Offizier and would have added the Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichungen on 2 October 1936.

First of all thank all your answers and interest


The second tape baffles me, because of the two vertical stripes in the center.


The "Fürstlich Reußisches Ehrenkreuz 3. Klasse mit der Krone und Schwertern" tape does not have those two stripes.


And I have never seen a "Württemberg Verdienstkreuz" medal with a crown. But it is the only tape I know of with the two vertical stripes in the center.

Who knows?

Adolf v.S. was already a Lt at the outbreak of the war.

A Württemberg Cross of Merit would have been awarded to an NCO type, so it is simply impossible that he's  got one.

 

Best,

Daniel

Hi

on the picture there is a small defect that suggests a line, Adolf Frhr von Seckendorff received the Reuß Ehrenkreuz 3rd class with X and crown as Dave said above.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
