I would love to know who this admiral is, 

he's wearing:

neck insignia:

1: KO2
2: maybe hessian Philipp order ?
3: I remember seeing this one, but forgot what it is
4: Zähringer Lion commander 2nd class
5: Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus commander
6: Swedish order of the Sword ?
7: Russian St. Stanislaus order


1: a Scandinavian insignia ?
2: Russian St. Stanislaus order breast star
3: Chinese order (maybe double dragon) ?

medal bar (left to right):

1: maybe RAO
2: long service
3: 1870/71 medal
4: centenary medal
5: what's that again?

Nr. 2 is the Roter Adler Orden II klasse, Nr. 3 is Orden von Isabella der Katholikin komtur kreuz and the medal on the bar is the Kingdom of Hawaii's Royal Order of Kalākaua I companions cross

Now searching for him in the forum, I found the thread again with the Hawaii order. There Geißler was als discussed a lot.

There is also an Austrian order of the Iron Crown 2nd class, he is wearing below the St. Stanislaus (How could I not see it, it is one of my favourite decorations)

Neck badge number 2 seems to be the württembergian Friedrichs-Orden Komtur 2. Klasse

    • 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.
