If you mean the first medal on the medal bar it could be the Order of Leopold.

Yes I do mean the first medal on the bar.
My initial thought was that it was an Order of Leopold, but the more I look at it the less certain I am.

What else should/could it be then Order of Leopold when it´s on the first position? He did not receive it until November 1918 but I would think he got it by decision from the "Heller-Kommission". Dittrich had no award from the republic.

I could find his last k.u.k. promotion in Marineverordnungsblatt:

Gentlemen, I could find the proof for Order of Leopold in his obituary:

Thanks Christian, now we have a complete list of his awards.

Am I reading the link to the Saatsarchiv wrong or was Dittrich awarded the 'goldene Ehrenzeichen für Verdienste um die Republik Österreich' in 1933?

Regards,
Ian

Dear Ian,

you are reading "half" wrong. Goldenes Ehrenzeichen was proposed but not awarded.
