Hi Agustin,

 

Great to see again a Japanese award in this interesting thread you did start up by yourself.

 

The other one being Admiral Paul Wenneker with the Order of the Rising Sun, 1st Class (Japan) on page one, also posted by you.

 

Looking at several photos of award winners, I see the award worn on the left and the right side of the chest.

On the photos you show us Wenneker is wearing his award at the right and Kesselring at the left.

Any idea what the reason is ?

 

Thanks for showing.

 

Best regards

 

Eric-Jan

Two German officers with a set of Bulgarian decorations. 

 

Carl-August von Schonenebeck (left, later Generalmajor) and Hans Bruckmann (center, later Generalmajor).

 

Both men are wearing the Royal Order of Saint Alexander.

 

Saludos, amigo.
