    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?

    Two unknown badge awards

    I agree it's not the best quality. But I think we can for sure rule out the estroyer Badge you suggested earlier. The part of the ship would stick out of the badge on the left side.

    Pierce, I a came across this better photo of Hermann von Fischel. Would you now agree the circled award is the Kriegsabzeichen für die Marineartillerie? I can clearly see the coastal artillery gun in the center of the badge. Compare with the photo of the badge I posted above. Thanks

    Photo of German soldiers wearing foreign decorations.

    Another photo of Donitz wearing the Italian decoration around the neck. On GMIC forum I was told that on the first photo I posted few days ago Donitz is wearing the Commander's Cross of the Miltiary Order of Savoy. Does this second photo confirm the Order of Savoy? Can we concluded it is not the Order of SS Maurice and Lazarus?

    You also mentioned you have seen photos of Donitz wearing the Order of Savoy. Can you perhaps post them here for comparison? I can't find any.

    Photo of German soldiers wearing foreign decorations.

    To me it looks like the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus. If you look closely you can see there is no circle in the middle of the award like on the Military Order of Savoy. I also can't see the wreath. See the photo comparison below. What do you think?

    Photo of German soldiers wearing foreign decorations.

    I'm sorry. Are you talking about the Military Order of Savoy or the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus? I want to know if Donitz recieved the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus, or more specifically what is the neck order he is wearing on the photo. Commander Grade you say.

    Photo of German soldiers wearing foreign decorations.

    Hello Pierce. Did you find out if Donitz was awarded the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus? If he is indeed wearing it on the photo what class is it? The Grand Officer? On my list of Donitz's awards I have the following Italian decorations: -Knight's Cross of the Italian Military Order of Savoy (20 April 1940) -Commander's Cross of the Italian Military Order of Savoy (7 November 1941) If that indeed is the Grand Officer's Cross of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus I would like to add it to the database over on the Axis History Forum. Please confirm. Thanks
