I second Andreas' thanks, Santiago!

Any information on his Imperial awards (other than EK I & II)?

Best wishes,

Mike,

In this photo from Angolia’s For Führer and Fatherland: Military Awards of the Third Reich, Pfeffer von Salomon is displaying the EK I and II; the Prussian Royal Hohenzollern House Order, Knight’s Cross with Swords; unknown, possibly the Saxon Albert Order with Swords (either the Knight 1st Class or Knight 2nd Class – the two were differentiated by the color of the edging on the arms of the cross); unknown cross; Silesian Eagle 1st and 2nd Class; Baltic Cross (worn as a medal on his bar and as a pin-back cross); an unknown circular medal (Austrian???); and the Wound Badge in Black.

Best regards,
Shawn

Bonjour,

unknown cross : Maybe Deutschritter-Kreuz (http://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/weimar ... lasse.html)
unknown circular medal (Austrian???) : Maybe Erinnerungsmedaille der Eisernen Division (http://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/weimar ... ision.html)
