Char. Konteradmiral (Ing.) Adolf Schützler - Ottoman War Medal?


Recommended Posts

Sure looks like the Eiserner Halbmond ... maybe he served on a German ship under Kaiserlicher Ottomanischer command? I couldn't find him in the Rangliste 1916, so maybe he was officially by the "Osmanische Kriegsmarine"?!

Is the last medal a Hanseatenkreuz?

Do you happen to know more about von Truppel? Thanks! https://gmic.co.uk/topic/77154-admiral-oskar-von-truppel/?tab=comments#comment-695886

For the duration of the war he was the Fleet Engineer with the Command of the High Seas Fleet, then the High Seas Forces (30 March 1914-02 April 1918). He retired on 23 May 1918.

If you have an exact birth- and deathdate I would be thankful ...!

For Adolf Schützler or Oskar von Truppel?

Here is for both:

Adolf Schützler (03 August 1860 in Bonn – 13 January 1932 in Aachen)

Oskar von Truppel (17 May 1854 in Katzhütte - 20 August 1931 in Berlin-Frohnau)

One last, small question for Kriegsmarine Admiral: If Schützler was retired "mit dem Charakter als Konteradmiral (Ing.)" 1919 (depending on when), was he then officially considered a Konteradmiral  a. D. of the Kaiserliche Marine or rather a Konteradmiral a. D. of the Vorläufige Reichsmarine?

He retired on 23 May 1918. But his last rank was Marineoberchefingnieur (equivalent to the rank of Kapitän zur See) (from 13 July 1916). On 23 August 1919 he was "Rang als Konteradmiral (Ing.) verliehen". It doesn't say it was a Charakter rank, but it has to be, since he was retired for over a year when he got the rank. 

He would most certainly be considered Konteradmiral  a. D. of the Kaiserliche Marine. In my opinion, all officers that got promoted to admiral ranks until 1 January 1921 (when the Reichsmarine was officialy established) are considered Kaiserliche Marine admirals.

    • 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.
