Hello Gentlemen!

Here's a website that lists members of the German Nobility that were awarded the Blutorden...

Did Wilhelm Adam (Paulus's adjutant NOT the Reichswehr general) receive the Blutorden? according to his bio at wikipedia he took part in the putch but left the party at 1926, it's didn't make clear if he rejoin later.

It´s strange that onall the photos I have on SS-Obfhr Arthur Rödl he does´n´t wear the band on his right
pocket which indicates that he got this high party award.
Pretty strange to me.

Best regards,

Georg

What about it ? it only shows Röhm ? and Hess ? no forenames and no titles, and besides the Blutorden was instituted in March 1934 Röhm was killed 30 June 1934 the question still remains did he recieve it before he was killed ? And what about Hess ?

Richard, you didn't mention a forename or title either, you just asked "Did Röhm recieve the Blutordern before he was killed ?"
Röhm who? I assume when you say "what about it" when asked to look at the first page as mentioned by Phil, you want other members to work out who you are meaning. Can you therefore be more specific for me [or others] to help you?

In regards to the question about Röhm's Blood Order. The answer is that he NEVER actually received it. The original medal which was marked with the number 1, was kept in the Munich office of SA Obergruppenführer Wilhelm Brückner (who headed the Office of the 9th November 1923). It was discovered there at the end of the war along with several other Blood Orders of various numbers. Now this became a problem when Lt. Ben Lieber "liberated" Hitler's Blood Order out of his apartment. Hitler's Blood Order ALSO had the number 1 on it -- however Hitler's was engraved whereas the "Röhm" Blood Order was stamped with the number 1. It was assumed that after Röhm's death Hitler was (which of course was logical) given the number 1. Hence two Blood Orders were marked with the number 1.

This information was published in a few articles by the late Ben Schwerigan. I hope I spelt that name right?

Thanks. Hexar

Hexar:

Hitler always wore the full medal on the annual ceremonies each year from 1934-1938. In 1939 he started wearing just the ribbon itself in his double breasted jacket buttonhole. During the war he attended the annual ceremony each November 8 up to 1943 to deliver his speech but never attended the wreath laying ceremony on the 9th. The 1944 ceremonies he was represented by Himmler.

The photo posted by Winston Smith is titled:
Julius Streicher_Adolf Hitler_Alfred Rosenberg_Walter Schultze_Hermann Goering.jpg

From right to left are: Hermann Kriebel (and Philip Bouhler behind) him; unidentified; Ulrich Graf; Alfred Rosenberg; A.H.; Walter "Bubi" Schultze; Hermann Göring; unidentifed (by me, anyway); and Dr. med. vet. Friedrich Weber. Oh, and Max Amann partially visible behind and above the left shoulder of Kriebel.

Best wishes,
~ Mike
