What is this insignia in generals' uniform

Postby Cartaphilus on 25 Oct 2012 20:59

Dear friends, I've seen in many photos of Imperial German generals the same kind of pin or insignia that, for exaple, appears in this image or Karl von Büllow between the Grand Cross of the Black Eagle Order and the Hohenzollern House Order Cross:

Or here with Hindenburg, at the left side of the Iron Cross:

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

it appears to be similar to this one: http://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsc ... -1906.html

Maybe another jubilee.

Regards

Christian

Sorry Marcus, I forgot it. The images were taken from:

http://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsc ... -1906.html

Thanks for your help, Christian. It seems that is the same decoration.
