Unknown Awards and Decorations (Medals)

Postby Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 07 Oct 2017 20:00

I need help identifying some Awards.

@A Unknown, possibly Japanese Breast Award? (Right, Admiral Richard Foerster)
@B Number 1?
Is number 2 the Messina Earthquake Medal 1908 (Italy)?
@C Is it the Spanish Grand Cross of Military Merit with White Decoration?

B and C are the awards of Generaladmiral Boehm.

Also, did Generaladmiral Hermann Boehm recieve the Anschluss Medal?

Thank you!

The medal ahead of the Earthquake Medal is the Ottoman silver Liakat Medal.

Bonjour,

This is not a Japanese order, but the Peruvian order (Order of the Sun).

It can actually be any of the Classes (except the Grand Cross with Diamonds), they all look similar.
