For Bernhard Rogge, the award date I have for the Königlich Italienische Bronzene Tapferkeitsmedaille is 25. 09. 1941. Which one is then correct? This one or 16 December 1941?

Add:

-Kommandeurkreuz des Spanischen Imperialer Ordens vom Joch und den Pfeilen (20. 03. 1941) (add it below the Kommandeurkreuz des Königlich Bulgarischen Militär-Verdienstordens)

6) Vizeadmiral Bernhard Rogge viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2183267&hi ... e#p2183267

Change the award date of his -Königlich Italienische Bronzene Tapferkeitsmedaille from (25. 09. 1941) to (16. 12. 1941).

7) Konteradmiral Rolf Johannesson viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2187884&hi ... n#p2187884

Add the award date (29. 03. 1943) after his -Königlich Italienische Bronzene Tapferkeitsmedaille.

Change the award date of his -Finnischer Orden des Freiheitskreuzes I. Klasse mit Schwertern from (04. 06. 1942) to (25. 03. 1942).
It would appear the first date (25. 03. 1942) was correct all along.

Also, delete all the text at the bottom of his award list.

12) Konteradmiral z.V. Karl-Friedrich Wollanke viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2192196&hi ... e#p2192196

Delete the second photo that is posted. It shows Char. Admiral Hermann Bauer, and not Wollanke.

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 02 Jul 2022 18:43

Few new updates.

1) Großadmiral Dr. phil. h.c. Erich Raeder viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2177906&hi ... r#p2177906

Thanks to Pierce, who spotted the medal on Raeder's medal bar, add:

-Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 13. März 1938 (add it below the Königlich Bulgarische Kriegserinnerungsmedaille 1915/1918 mit Schwertern (30. 11. 1937)

Also, change the award date of his Ritterkreuz des Königlich Preußischen Hausordens von Hohenzollern mit Schwertern to 05. 06. 1916 and delete the brackets with the text in red after the award.

2) Vizeadmiral Rudolf Stange viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2184353&hi ... e#p2184353

Add:

-Deutsches Sportabzeichen (add it at the bottom of the list)

3) Konteradmiral Helmuth Kienast viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2188178&hi ... t#p2188178

Add:

-Kriegsabzeichen für die Marineartillerie (add it at the bottom of the list)

4) Konteradmiral Ludwig Stummel viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2191511&hi ... l#p2191511

Add:

-Eisernes Kreuz (1939) I. Klasse (add it below the Eisernes Kreuz (1914) II. Klasse and move the Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz II. Klasse above it)

5) Generaladmiral Karl Witzell viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2178628&hi ... l#p2178628

Add:

-Großkreuz des Königlich Ungarischen Verdienstordens (add it below the Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung IV. bis I. Klasse (02. 10. 1936)

It seems that the admiral previously identified in Helgoland as Witzell is indeed him and not the retired Reichsmarine Char. Admiral Iwan Christian Hermann Oldekop. So I am bringing this award back onto his awards list.

6) Vizeadmiral Heinrich Hanke viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2181490&hi ... e#p2181490

Add this photo of Hanke:

This is not a thread for identifying admirals. In the future please use the "Request for Identification of Generals and Admirals" thread.

Thank you Thierry. Some dates from this Wehrpass don't match the dates from the award documents that were sold on Weitze. See below the documents.

- Bremisches Hanseatenkreuz (05. 05. 1916)
- Ritterkreuz des Königlich Preußischen Hausordens von Hohenzollern mit Schwertern (23. 12. 1917)
- Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges 1914/1918 mit Schwertern für Frontkämpfer (01. 11. 1934)
- Deutsches Olympia-Ehrenzeichen I. Klasse (16. 08. 1936)
- Kommandeurkreuz I. Klasse des Ordens der Weißen Rose von Finnland (19. 10. 1936, Approved on 26. 01. 1937)

And the date for the Spange (1939) zum Eisernen Kreuz I. Klasse is 30. 09. 1939 (per the award document).
I think the dates from the actual documents are more trustworthy than those in the Wehrpass. Do you agree?
Nevertheless, we can add the dates for the EK2, EK1, OFA2 and OFA1.
