Morning.

the general carrying the Kaiser's baton is Generalmajor a.D. Karl Graf von der Goltz, a former Flügeladjutant. He is accompanied by Oberstleutnant a.D. Detlef Graf von Moltke, carrying the orders cushion, another former long-time Flügeladjutant.

Regards
Glenn

I have this interesting photo with several admirals. I think it might have been taken during a visit of an Austro-Hungarian delegation during the Kiel Week in 1910.

1 Kaiser Wilhelm II.

2 ??? (I'm not sure if he's an admiral, but he looks familiar, can't put a name to the face, perhaps Friedrich von Ingenohl?)

3 Admiral Henning von Holtzendorff (the officer standing behind him seems to be an Austro-Hungarian Army officer)

4 ???

5 ???

6 Archduke Franz Ferdinand wearing the Kaiserliche Marine uniform

7 Konteradmiral, looks very much like Reinhard Scheer ??? Notice the rare badge award he is wearing below the medal bar. It's the Offizierskreuz des Königlich Bayerischen Militärverdienstordens. Scheer had that award.

8 Austro-Hungarian Vizeadmiral Julius von Ripper

Thanks for any help!

If you can provide an image where one can clearly see his awards, I may be able to help.

Not to worry, I can identify him: Generalleutnant z.D. Max Frhr. v. Hügel (1851-1939).

You are right Glenn! Thank you! Is he a brother of Otto von Hügel ? Both come from Stuttgart!
