Dear Von Thoma, do you know why wasn't used the other type of Grand Cross of San Fernando Order? On these two photos, Franco wears both models of the Laureada Cross:

(Estimado Von Thoma, ¿sabes por qué en España se solía usar más el modelo de la Laureada con espadas, y no el modelo antiguo, formado por una cruz, el Santo en el centro, y los laureles alrededor?)

The Saint Fernando's Cross has a evolution since their institution in 1811.Had five Classes.The Plaque shown above is the Laureate in 4º Class (1815-1856),dedicated exclusively for Generals and Brigadiers,called "Great Order of Military Merit of Saint Fernando".In 1856 was unified,and was designed as we know it,the classic model worn by Franco below.
Franco won the cross only as reward for the Victory in Civil War, this not imply any requirement for the granting,was an example of self concession,and this angered further to their enemies.

The Classic Model ( For Generals had the sword blade gilt ).

Franco is awarded by the General Varela.

Hello,

can someone tell me what decorations this woman is wearing? I'm trying to find out if this is her own NS-Reichskriegerbund uniform or that of a male relative.

The woman is Annemarie Reimer, a doctor's wife from Tapiau in East Prussia. She served as a chauffeur in the staff of 10. Landwehr-Division in 1914 - 1915 and was also known as Unteroffizier Annemarie. Some details of her work during WW I can be found here http://www.kreisgemeinschaft-wehlau.de/ ... f/hb21.pdf (p. 5 - 10). So yes, she may have been a legitimate member of the NS-Reichskriegerbund.

What irritates me in particular is the cuff title saying ...etenland. The only matching word I can think of is Sudetenland but I fail to see any connection between Annemarie Reimer and the Sudetenland. She lived in East Prussia till 1945 as far as I know.

Hope someone can shed some light on these awards.

Best regards
Torsten

Even though it's a "man's" uniform.....I believe it's probably her's if the story is correct.....She's wearing a 1916 War Help Medal and the 1914-18 Honor Cross with Swords and the NSDAP Party pin. She has the membership pin on her tie and the metal RKB breast eagle, sleeve shield, visor hat, etc. I don't know about the Cuff title....my first impression is that it has to be "Sudetenland".....there's no other matches from the list of RKB cuff titles...but no idear of why she's wearing it unless she had "assignment" there (?)....

Great photo....not something you'd expect.

Hi, Dieter.Unfortunately, I can`t ID all foreign awards, but ribbon №5 in the 2nd row is Romanian Queen Maria Cross (Crucea Regina Maria). I will try to ID others, it`s a very interesting ribbon bar!

6. Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2. Stufe
7. Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 13. März 1938
8. Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 mit Spange Prager Burg

8. Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2. Stufe

10. Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 mit Spange Prager Burg
11. Medaille zur Erinnerung an die Heimkehr des Memellandes
12. Ehrenzeichen für Deutsche Volkspflege 3. Stufe


Bottom (medal bar):

1. Eisernes Kreuz 1914 2. Klasse
2. Kriegsverdienstkreuz mit Schwertern 2. Klasse
3. Rote-Kreuz-Medaille (Preußen) 3. Klasse
4. Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges 1914/1918 für Frontkämpfer
5. Österreichische Kriegserinnerungs-Medaille mit den Schwertern
6. Dienstauszeichnung der Wehrmacht 1. Klasse (f. 25-jährige Dienstzeit) (Luftwaffe)

14. Bulgarische Kriegserinnerungmedaille 1915/1918
15. Eiserner Halbmond mit Gefechtsspange [für ?]


Second from top (second ribbon bar)
...is giving me trouble. They are definitely all foreign decorations; this ribbon bar would have been together with (and below) the top one. Perhaps another member can fill in the blanks. The first three are:

1. Ungarische Kriegserinnerungsmedaille 1914/1918
2. Bulgarische Kriegserinnerungmedaille 1915/1918
3. Eiserner Halbmond mit Gefechtsspange [für ?]

...and no. 8 is some grade of the Spanish Order of the Yoke and Arrows.

What is this breast star in Göring's chest?

Seems to be an old german (imperial era) order, because isn't any of Göring's foreign awards.



Thank you so much.

His neck orders are, top to bottom, the 1957-version Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves [Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes mit Eichenlaub], the Grand Cross of Merit of the Order for Merit of the Federal Rebublic of Germany [Großes Verdienstkreuz des Verdienstordens der Bundesrepublik Deutschland] and the 1st model version of the cross for the Commander Grade of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Italy [Commendatore Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana].

I cannot ID it, but it is none of his Imperial-era German decorations. Surely a foreign order.
