Can anyone help me identify this German general officer? I also need a bit of help with his awards.

Hello Gerst,

it is Württemberg Generalmajor Wilhelm Bader, the last commander of the 51. Landwehr-Infanterie-Brigade. He wears at the throat, a commander's order with swords 2nd class of the Württemberg Friedrichs Order. Above the iron cross 1st class on the left breast is the officer's cross with swords of the Württemberg Crown Order.

On the medal bar:

Iron Cross 2nd class
Württemberg Military Merit Order knight's cross
Württemberg Friedrichs Order knight's cross 1st class
Württemberg officer's Long service decoration
Prussian House Order of Hohenzollern knight's cross with swords
Saxon Albrechts Order knight's cross 1st class

Regards
Glenn

Is the last medal on the bar not the Centenar medal?
