Unknown Medals of Char. Konteradmiral Adolf Thiele

Recommended Posts

Please help me ID the 3rd and 4th medals on his medal bar.

My guesses:

3rd medal: Königlich Preußische Kriegsdenkmünze für die Feldzüge 1870–71 für Kämpfer (although it is not listed for him in the 1904/05 and 1908/09 Deutscher Ordens-Almanach)

4th medal: China-Denkmünze, possibly in Stahl (for non-combatants) (he was in China between 1896 and 1898 as Commandant of the Protected Cruiser „Prinzeß Wilhelm“. This was before the outbreak of the Boxer Rebellion in November 1899, at which time he was the Commander of the II. Matrosen-Division)

Please tell me if you agree. Thanks!

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
