Great photo and one I always enjoy seeing, but Dönitz is wearing the Italian Military Order of Savoy.

Best regards

Hi Pierce! I'm not sure he's wearing the Order of Savoy... it doesn't look like it.  :confused:

Hi Pierce! I'm not sure he's wearing the Order of Savoy... it doesn't look like it.  :confused:

On looking again I do believe you are right! I have seen a few other photos that show him wearing the Savoy Order. His ribbon bar also testifies to that, but no ribbon for the Order of SS Maurice and Lazarus!

From his own signed records, he did not list the Order of SS Maurice and Lazarus. BUT perhaps there is something in what you say because from the same records he lists the Order of Savoy TWICE, with two different award dates...both are Commander Grade. Perhaps a mistake and the other should be the Order of SS Maurice and Lazarus? Do we know if the Order of SS Maurice and Lazarus was awarded during the War?

I have more research to do on this particular point.

I am not sure but I think he is wearing two neck orders. The other one is to the left of the photo and looks like the Bulgarian Civil Merit Order- which is also the top breast star on his jacket.

I am not sure what the other breast star is but maybe it is related to the neck order (?), making both orders Grand Officer Class.
