*I think the Silberne Medaille am Bande des Kaiserlich Russischer St. Stanislaus-Ordens looks like this (see 2nd photo below)?
The medal you post is on the ribbon of the St. Anne Order. The St. Stanislaus ribbon was red and white.

Hi,

I think on photo (page 17) with Tillessen and Witthoeft-Emden, on the left is Otto Schultze (NOT de la Perière).
Best,

Andrey.

But that has to be the Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer. Perhaps he mounted it incorrectly?
On the 2nd photo it seems it is in the right position? See below a better photo (but with watermark, that's why I didn't post it above).

Oh yes, I see, but what is the extra ribbon in this photo?

Ribbon bar:
- EK II mit 1939 Spange
- ???
- Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
- Königlich Preußische Rettungsmedaille am Bande ???
- Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz ???
- Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung II. Klasse
- Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung IV. Klasse

Is my ID of the 4th and 5th ribbons correct? What could the 2nd ribbon be?

No. 4 could be the Olympic Games Decoration/Medal? I have no idea if he would have received this though. There is a list out there of the recipients I believe.

Konteradmiral z.V. Karl von Bodecker (1875-1957)

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 31 Jan 2019 22:47

Konteradmiral z.V. Karl von Bodecker (1875-1957)

-Eisernes Kreuz (1914) II. Klasse
-Eisernes Kreuz (1914) I. Klasse
-Königlich Preußischer Roter Adler-Orden IV. Klasse
-Königlich Preußische Kaiser Wilhelm-Centenarmedaille 1897
-Ehrenritter des Königlich Preußischen Johanniter-Ordens
-Kaiserlich Türkischer Medschidié-Orden III. Klasse
-Ritterkreuz des Portugiesischen Ritterordens von Avis
-Königlich Preußisches Dienstauszeichnungskreuz
-Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer

*He retired in 1923 so he is not in any of the Rangliste (1926-1932) that list foreign awards. The Turkish and Portugese awards are from the 1914 Rangliste. It is possible he recieved some additional foreign awards during WW1.
**There is only one known photograph of Bodecker (see 2nd photo below). I look forward to a day when a WW2 period photo of him will surface. He was the Chief of the Senior-Shipyard-Staff of the Eastern Territories (Tallinn and Riga) (01 Dec 1941-28 Feb 1943). If anyone has some additional photos of Bodecker please post them. The first photo/portrait below is from Hildebrand's book "Deutschlands Admirale", even he couldn't find a photo of Bodecker.
