Any idea who this holder is?
Looks like Konteradmiral Magnus von Levetzow.

I am not sure if this is a PlM-holder - does anyone recognize him? It was taken at a meeting of Westfälisches Dragoner-Regiment Nr.7 in the 1930´s in Saarbrücken.

I should think it is a Johanniter Order. His decorations are not explicitly clear in this shot, but I seem to be able to make out a Mecklenburg Military Merit Cross and a Bavarian Military Merit Order. That being said, I would take a stab at Major (E) Harry von Müller, head of the remount office in Breithülen and former Rittmeister in DR 7 and awarded the Johanniter Order in 1919.

Elwyn, you are right! The horrible photographs in the"new" Zweng book didn't let me see his hole in the chin, same has Lincke! Thank you!
