Hi all, I've been doing some research on various Ordenskissen pillow photo's and came across this image from "Life" of Hugo Bruckmann's funeral, I recognise all of the awards except one, does anyone recognise it, it doesn't look like a military one, but I could be wrong, any help appreciated
regards

Hello friends.

Any idea about the order on Walther Funk's sash? It reminds me some imperial order, maybe from the House of Lippe, but i'm not sure...

Can someone confirm if this is the High Seas Fleet Badge (Flotten-Kriegsabzeichen)?

Looks like the MInesweepers Badge. There seems to be too much space between the top of the central icon and the lower part under the eagle for the High Seas Fleet Badge. But I can not see anything in his assignments that would see him being awarded the MInesweepers Badge.

I agree, thank you! Well, Admiral Otto von Schrader was also awarded the Minesweeper badge but his assignments don't indicate why he would get it.

1) Possibly WW-1 Submarine or Zeppelin Badge (just a guess).
2) WW-2 KvK I Klasse mit Schwertern.

Thank you, number 1 is indeed the Commemorative Badge for the Crews of Navy Airships (or Zeppelin Badge as you said). This is the uniform of Vizeadmiral Ernst Schirlitz and he was awarded the Zeppelin Badge.
