What is the Breast Star he is wearing above the Breast Star of the Kronen Orden 2. Klasse?

Could it be the Großherzoglich Oldenburgischen Haus- und Verdienstorden des Herzogs Peter Friedrich Ludwig? If yes, which class? Perhaps Großkreuz, because he is wearing a sash?

Again, nothing in the Rangliste.

Thanks

Sash looks like the GK des M-S Greiffenordens to me. Not an unusual award for Naval officers of flag rank. Pic is too blurry to make out the star, but it might be of the same order. The Oldenburg Hausorden GK sash would in my view look different in b/w. 

Kind regards,

Hello Sandro. Today I was compiling the list of awards of Vizeadmiral Wilhelm Schack.

On his portrait photo we can see he was awarded the Honour Grand Cross of the Oldenburg House and Merit Order of Peter Friedrich Ludwig. See the sash, circled breast star and cross at the end of the sash.

In my opinion, Char. Vizeadmiral Hermann Alberts that we discussed above, is wearing the same sash and breast star as Schack. I believe that Alberts is then also wearing the Honour Grand Cross of the Oldenburg House and Merit Order of Peter Friedrich Ludwig and not the GK des M-S Greiffenordens like you suggested before. The sashes look exactly the same in black and white. Do you agree?

Regards

Quite possible, given the construction of the crown suspension. The pic again is of poor quality, and I would expect the blue field to come out differently in B/W. But the construction of the suspension suggests you are correct.

That is very much in the eye of the beholder, isn't it? The quality of both pics is poor, but the sash in hte Albert looks lighter to me. That said, yellow has a tendency to come out funny in B/W (check out pics of the Zentenarmedaille), so perhaps you are right. Why don't you convert the color pics I set out above to B/W and compare them to the Alberts pic? That may give better insights than trying to compare the colors on two low res poor quality B/W pics.

Just my 5cts.

Kind regards, 

Sandro

Sandro, thank you very much for this! You have some great photos in your collection!

It's unfortunate not all admirals on the photos are named. I will try and ID the ones I recognize. Do I have your permission to post these photos on other forums, in hopes someone will be able to help us ID them?

Please let me know.

Regards

P.S. Could you please repost this one (below) so the whole photo is visible?

Pleasure, and yes, please go ahead. The pic above is a cut out of the pic that immediately precedes it in my posting. I posted it because it shows the decorations a bit better.

Kind regards, 

Sandro

I see. But could you post the full photo again in better quality like this cut out? The full photo is a bit grey and blurry.

These are the pics I have on file Kriegsmarine Admiral. The admiral is Funke, and his awards are relatively clear in the cut out. I think I posted a further pic of Funke as well, so between these two pics, quite a lot of research should be possible. 

Kind regards, 

Sandro

Dear Mr. Karlo,A few days ago I saw a photo of the German navy that you posted to get the breast star order from Orange-Nassau  in the Netherlands. I didn’t save it. I can’t find that article. Can you? Send me again?

I'm not sure what photo you mean, but try and look here: https://gmic.co.uk/topic/77098-char-admiral-gustav-schmidt-medal-bar-id/

Char. Admiral Gustav Schmidt had the breast star of the Oranien-Nassau.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
