Re: Friedrich Bonte, Alfred Schirmer, Baltenkreuz Correction

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 17 Sep 2021 12:06

We have some new updates.

For Kommodore Friedrich Bonte viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2192428&hi ... e#p2192428

Thanks to Gregg, who found the documents, please add:

The date (00. 03. 1941) for the -Zerstörer-Kriegsabzeichen
The date (09. 04. 1941) for the -Narvikschild
Also, please delete the part "in Gold" after the Narvikschild. All the Narvikschild for Kriegsmarine personnel were in Gold.

For Vizeadmiral (Ing.) Alfred Schirmer viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2184150&hi ... r#p2184150

Please add (per photographic evidence):

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

Also, seven admirals received the Baltenkreuz (as far as we know). Dave Danner pointed out that the Baltenkreuz "was a single-class decoration. Whether worn from a ribbon or as a pinback was a matter of choice." As of now, I have it in the Database as having two classes. This needs to be corrected.

So, please delete the "II. Klasse" or "II. und I. Klasse" that appears after the Baltenkreuz for the following admirals. The award should be listed just as "-Baltenkreuz", with the award date after it, if known. In some cases the two classes are written in two rows, then just delete one entry, and leave the other one as "-Baltenkreuz".

I believe that it is not necessary to add "posthumous" after an award if both the date of death and the date of the award are already listed. There will be too many parentheses otherwise.
