Gentlemen, online I can find EK II and I, Ritterkreuz des Königlichen Hausordens von Hohenzollern mit Schwertern and Pour le Mérite for Oberst Erich Böhme, but he seems to have had a lot more wartime awards. He seems to have the Eiserner Halbmond and three other Turk medals. What could that second neck order be? Can anyone help? Thank you!

I'm not familiar with the classes of this order, but something that corresponds to a Commander grade (with or without a breast star - he may have chosen not to wear one even if he was awarded one).

Thank you, Gentlemen! Also a big thanks to the GMIC-member, who has sent me a private message. Here is what we have put together. Corrections are very welcome.

By the way, he was a "Tannenberg-General" (Charakter als Generalleutnant 27 August 1939)

well it looks like the war merit cross 1st class from Brunswick, but I can't spot the 2nd class on his medal bar. If he doesn't have the 2nd class he fore sure wouldn't got the 1st. 

I wonder which picture is older: the one with the ribbonbar or the one with the medalbar. In the picture with the medalbar he is wearing both classes of the Brunswick war merit cross. On the bar it is the small cross behind the BMVOx.

 

Kind regards, Laurentius

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
