Admiralrichter Paul Becker (1881-1963)

Admiralrichter Paul Becker (1881-1963)

-Eisernes Kreuz (1914) II. Klasse (not confirmed)
-Eisernes Kreuz (1914) I. Klasse (not confirmed)
-Kaiserlich Türkischer Eiserner Halbmond
-Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
-Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung IV. bis I. Klasse

*I can only assume he had the EK1 because he had the Türkischer Eiserner Halbmond, which was a bit of an equivalent. He is not listed in the Rangliste and I can't check. The photo doesn't reveal more unfortunately.

Admiralrichter Dr. jur. Wilhelm Bucholz (1896-1955)

Admiralrichter Dr. jur. Wilhelm Bucholz (1896-1955)

-Eisernes Kreuz (1914) II. Klasse
-Eisernes Kreuz (1914) I. Klasse
-Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
-Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung IV. bis III. Klasse
-Kriegsverdienstkreuz (1939) II. Klasse mit Schwertern
-Kriegsverdienstkreuz (1939) I. Klasse mit Schwertern

*The EK I is clearly visible on his photo. However, in his bio there is no info about his WW1 career (the bio starts from 1927, that's why the Wehrmacht DA is only 4. bis 3. Klasse, perhaps he had a higher class, but I can't confirm it). But I doubt it the EK I is the 1939 version. Again, I can't check the Rangliste, because he is not listed.

*The EK II is visible on his ribbon bar. A badge award can also be seen on the photo but I can't confirm if that's the EK I. No further info on awards. 2 more ribbons are visible on his ribbon bar (see 2nd photo below). If anyone has any ideas on what they might be please comment.

*On the 3rd photo below we can see he had quite a long ribbon bar. The photo quality is not good enough to ID them unfortunately (or perhaps someone can recognize some of the ribbons?). The 1918 Rangliste lists only the EK II and OFA2.

In the third photo (Hermann Burkhardt) we can distinguish a decoration at the neck (crown ?)

It indeed seems to be a neck decoration. However, it's impossible to tell what it is from this angle.

Marineoberbaudirektor Dipl.-Ing. Georg Frede (1882-1970)

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 14 Mar 2019 19:42

Marineoberbaudirektor Dipl.-Ing. Georg Frede (1882-1970)

-Eisernes Kreuz (1914) II. Klasse
-Eisernes Kreuz (1914) I. Klasse
-Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
-Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung IV. bis I. Klasse

*The list is incomplete. He is not listed in the Rangliste, but there are 2 medals after the EK II and before the Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer. They are very dark and not visible even on the photo in the book I took (2nd below). Perhaps someone can recognize them when looking at the ribbons above. He also seems to be wearing 2 more badge awards below his EK I (I marked them with "A" and "B"). "A" looks like a "tile" of some sorts, and of "B" only the top is visible. Please share your opinions below.

The second medal could be the Oldenburg - Friedrich August Kreuz 2. Klasse
