  1. Kriegsmarine Großadmiral

    Two unknown badge awards

    Hi guys, can you please help me ID the 2 awards of Admiral Hermann von Fischel? 1 Could it be the Stern of the Spanischen Orden für Verdienste zur See or Spanisch-Marrokanisches Mehdauia-Orden? (he was awarded both of these awards) 2 Is this the Kriegsabzeichen für die Marineartillerie?
  2. Konteradmiral Hasso von Bredow His list of awards I have: -Iron Cross (1914) 1st Class -Iron Cross (1914) 2nd Class -Prussian Order of the Red Eagle 4th Class -Spanish Order of Naval Merit 1st Class -Knight's Cross 1st Class of the Saxon Albrecht Order with Swords -Prussian Long Service Cross 1st Class (25 years) -Knight of Honor (Ehrenritter) of the Johanniter Order -The Honour Cross of the World War 1914/1918 with Swords -Wehrmacht Long Service Awards 4th to 1st Class I have 2 photos of his ribbon bar.
