  1. Who can help with General der Flieger Gustav Kastner-Kirdorf please:-
  2. Hi all, I've just realised what an idiot I've been. I noticed that Drechsel was a Württemberger, so his WW1 awards were recorded on their weekly military publication. He had received the following awards by the end of WW1:- 00.00.00 – Kronen Orden 4 Klasse 00.00.14 – Eisernes Kreuz 2 Klasse 03.02.15 – Militär-Verdienst-Orden, Ritterkreuz (Württemberg) 20.04.15 – Eisernes Kreuz 1 Klasse 19.07.15 – Militär-Verdienst-Kreuz 3 Klasse mit Kriegsdekoration 30.12.15 – Ehrenkreuz 3 Klasse Fürstlich Hohenzollern Hausorden mit Schwertern 20.02.17 – Friedrichs-Orden, Ritterkreuz 1 Klasse mit Schwertern (Württemburg) 13.04.17 – Königlicher Hausorden von Hohenzollern, Ritterkreuz mit Schwertern 12.01.18 – Ritterkreuz 1 Klasse des Albrechts-Orden mit Schwertern (Saxony) 08.11.18 – Militär-Verdienst-Orden 4 Klasse mit Schwertern (Bavaria) Best Regards, Matt.
  3. Hi All, Who can tell me about the awards of Generalmajor Ernst Drechsel please?
  4. Hi Jaime & Pierce, Thanks a lot for taking the time to help with this man. Ok, I have another unidentified Luftwaffe officer (not sure if he's an Oberst or General der Flieger). The 3rd and 6th ribbons appears to have bars on them. Thanks for anything you can suggest. VBR, Matt.
  5. Hi Jaime, He is an Oberst, but he might have been further promoted to General...
  6. Hi Jaime, Thanks again for your reply. Unfortunately I don't know his name - I was hoping that his awards might provide a clue, but it seems unlikely. I didn't recognise him when looking through images of the Luftwaffe Generals either. Maybe one day someone will provide the answer!
  7. Hi Jaime, Thanks a lot for your efforts. The third one on the top row looks a bit like the Tapferkeitsmedaille of Hesse to me. Regarding the first one, do you think this could this be the Hohenzollern? Bear in mind that I'm a novice at this - I was delighted that you agreed with my guess about the Anschluss ribbon!!!
  8. Hi All, This man was well decorated, but his ribbon bar is partially obscured. Can anyone identify some his awards? Thanks a lot, Matt.
  9. Hi all, Here is another photo of GL Ernst Krüger. Maybe it can help you to identify his awards?
