Thank you Gregg.

Moderatos, for Konteradmiral Karl-Jesko von Puttkamer viewtopic.php?f=5&t=239341&p=2189728&hi ... r#p2189728
Please update his Spanischer Orden für Verdienste zur See like this:
-Königlich Spanischer Orden für Verdienste zur See I. Klasse mit Weiß Verliehen
I think the class of this award is not the 2. Klasse, because he is not wearing the Breast Star that the 2nd, 3rd and Grand Cross Class all had.
Also, delete all the text after the *

Sorry Thierry, but the China-Denkmünze is NOT listed for Punt in the 1928 Rangliste (see below). If you think he did receive it, I need some additional proof, besides the fact he serverd on that ship.
Additionaly, after reading the paragraph about the Boxer Rebellion on the page "SMS Wörth": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_W%C3% ... _Rebellion, it would seem that ship didn't take part in any actual fighting during the Rebellion, because it already ended when the SMS Wörth arrived in China.

Bonjour,
Bien, so how do you explain that Admiral LOOFF (Wachoffizier/Linienschiff "Wörth" (28.09.1899-1.10.1901) holds the medal ?
and "From there, Wörth was detached to cover the disembarkation of the German expeditionary corps outside the Taku Forts."

For Looff we have photographic evidence of his China-Denkmünze. If Siegfried Punt also received it, it would have been listed in the Rangliste. But as you can see, it's not. It may be an error, but for now I choose to trust the Rangliste, at least until additional proof for Punt surfaces.
