Foto ini diambil bulan September 1942 di wilayah Évreux-Dreux yang berada di sebelah barat Paris, seusai upacara penganugerahan medali-medali Rumania (sekutu Jerman dalam Perang Dunia II) untuk tiga orang anggota Leibstandarte yang berprestasi: Witt mendapatkan Ordinul Steaua României Mare Ofițer (Officer to the Order of the Star of Romania. Didapatkan tanggal 16 Juli 1942); Staudinger mendapatkan Ordinul Steaua României Comandor, spade şi panglică de Virtute Militră (Commander to the Order of the Star of Romania with Swords on Ribbon of Military Virtue. Didapatkan tanggal 24 Juni 1942); dan Wisch mendapatkan Ordinul Coroana României, II-a spade şi panglică de Virtute Militră (Order of the Crown of Romania, 2nd Class with Swords on Ribbon of Military Virtue. Didapatkan tanggal 3 September 1942)

ORDINUL "MIHAI VITEAZUL"


General der Kavallerie Erik-Oskar Hansen (27 Maret 1889 - 20 Maret 1967) dianugerahi medali Ordinul Mihai Viteazul 3.klasse yang dia terima tanggal 22 Agustus 1941 sebagai Kommandierender-General LIV. Armeekorps. Dia juga adalah seorang peraih Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes (4 September 1941) dan Deutsches Kreuz in Gold (19 September 1942)


   Oberst Alfred-Hermann Reinhardt (Kommandeur Grenadier-Regiment 421 / 125.Infanterie-Division) dalam sebuah foto studio tak lama setelah dianugerahi Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes mit Eichenlaub. Selama karir militernya, mantan perwira polisi ini mendapat medali dan penghargaan sebagai berikut: 1914 Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse (31 Agustus 1917) dan I.Klasse (31 Juli 1919); Schleischer Adler; Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer; 1939 spange zum 1914 Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse (25 Juni 1940) dan I.Klasse (27 Juli 1940); Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber; Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber; Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1941/42 (Ostmedaille); Deutsches Kreuz in Gold #176/5 (4 September 1942); Ordinul Mihai Viteazul III.Klasse #218/7 (7 Agustus 1943); serta Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes (4 Desember 1941) mit Eichenlaub #306 (28 September 1943) und Schwertern #118 (24 Desember 1944). Yang terakhir diperoleh saat Reinhardt (15 November 1897 - 14 Januari 1973) berpangkat Generalleutnant dan Kommandeur 98. Infanterie-Division

Upacara penganugerahan Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes untuk Feldwebel Johann Schwerdfeger (Zugführer di 1.Kompanie / I.Bataillon / Jäger-Regiment 228 / 101.Jäger-Division), yang diselenggarakan pada tanggal 17 Mei 1943. Dalam foto ini, tampak Schwerdfeger (kanan) sedang menginspeksi unitnya bersama dengan Generalleutnant Emil Vogel (Kommandeur 101. Jäger-Division). Schwerdfeger mendapatkan Ritterkreuz sebagai penghargaan untuk kegigihannya dalam mempertahankan jalur suplai unitnya dalam gerak mundur dari Kaukasus. Tidak hanya itu, dia juga nantinya mendapatkan Eichenlaub #474 untuk Ritterkreuz-nya pada tanggal 14 Mei 1944 setelah memperlihatkan keberanian yang luar biasa saat menerobos kepungan Soviet di Hube-Kessel (Kantong Hube). Disini kita juga bisa melihat bahwa sang Divisionskommandeur Vogel mengenakan medali Rumania Mihai Viteazul di seragamnya

ORDINUL COROANA ROMANIEI





General der Infanterie Erich Abraham memakai medali Coroana Romaniei Order with swords Commander class yang dia terima tanggal 22 Juni 1942 sebagai Oberst dan komandan Infanterie-Regiment 230


 
Generalmajor Paul Betz dengan Knight's Cross of the Order of the Crown of Romania with Swords


Oberst Ludwig Hörl memakai medali Steaua Romaniei Order with swords Knight class


Generalleutnant Hermann Kreß merupakan peraih Steaua Romaniei Order with swords Commander class with Virtute Militara ribbon. Disini medalinya tidak kelihatan, hanya pitanya saja yang nempel di kancing. Bentuknya memang tidak jauh beda dengan pita Eisernes Kreuz II klasse, hanya saja ukurannya lebih besar!



Generalmajor Helmuth Strempel dianugerahi Deutsches Kreuz in Gold tanggal 10 Mei 1943 sebagai Oberst im Generalstab di 21. Panzer-Division. Dia juga mendapat medali Eisernes Kreuzes II. Klasse (11 November 1939) dan I. Klasse (15 Juni 1940); Ärmelband Afrika; Krimschild (stiftungs ausführing); Ostmedaille (22 Agustus 1942); serta
Coroana Romaniei Order with swords Commander class (Rumania)


General der Gebirgstruppe Kurt Versock memakai medali Coroana Romaniei Order with swords Commander class yang dia terima tanggal 15 Februari 1943 sebagai Oberst dan komandan Infanterie-Regiment 31/24.Infanterie-Division


 Upacara penganugerahan medali medali Ordinul Coroana României, II-a spade şi panglică de Virtute Militră (Order of the Crown of Romania, 2nd Class with Swords on Ribbon of Military Virtue) untuk SS-Obersturmbannführer Theodor "Teddy" Wisch (Kommandeur SS-Infanterie-Regiment [motorisiert] / SS-Division [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler") yang disematkan oleh SS-Obergruppenführer und General der Waffen-SS Josef "Sepp" Dietrich (Kommandeur SS-Division [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler"). Upacara ini diselenggarakan pada bulan September 1942 di wilayah Évreux-Dreux yang berada di sebelah barat Paris. Pada saat itu Divisi Leibstandarte sedang berada di Prancis setelah ditarik dari Front Timur bulan Juli 1942 untuk memulihkan diri setelah bertempur secara non-stop selama berbulan-bulan melawan Tentara Merah



Foto hasil jepretan SS-Kriegsberichter Max Büschel ini memperlihatkan SS-Obersturmbannführer Theodor "Teddy" Wisch (Kommandeur SS-Infanterie-Regiment [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler") yang dengan bangga memperlihatkan medali Ordinul Coroana României, II-a spade şi panglică de Virtute Militră (Order of the Crown of Romania, 2nd Class with Swords on Ribbon of Military Virtue) yang baru saja didapatkannya pada tanggal 3 September 1942. Medali keberanian tertinggi Rumania ini pertama kali dikeluarkan oleh Raja Carol I pada tanggal 14 Maret 1881, dan terus diberikan kepada para putra terbaiknya (juga sekutu asing pilihan) sampai dengan runtuhnya monarki Rumania pada tahun 1947. Medali tersebut kemudian diaktifkan kembali pada tahun 2011. Dalam foto ini Wisch mengenakan medali Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Bronze lebih rendah dari kebiasaan, sementara Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz berada lebih tinggi dari Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen. Perlu diketahui bahwa saat Divisi Leibstandarte berada di bawah komando Sepp Dietrich, Verwundetenabzeichen (Medali Luka) tidak diberikan begitu mudahnya dan kadangkala dibutuhkan luka yang sangat serius untuk "layak" mendapatkan medali tersebut. Karenanya bisa jadi penempatan Verwundetenabzeichen yang lebih tinggi dibandingkan Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen oleh Wisch menunjukkan betapa berharganya medali tersebut!


SS-Sturmbannführer Max Wünsche (Kommandeur I.Abteilung / SS-Panzer-Regiment 1 / SS-Panzergrenadier-Division "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler") memperlihatkan senyum lebar saat difoto di Berghof, Obersalzberg, wilayah pegunungan Alpen Bavaria (Jerman), musim semi tahun 1943. Pada bulan Juni di tahun tersebut, Wünsche ditransfer ke 12. SS-Panzer-Division "Hitlerjugend" yang baru dibentuk, dimana dia dipercaya untuk menjadi Regimentskommandeur dari SS-Panzer Regiment 12

ORDINUL STEAUA ROMANIEI




  Oberstleutnant Georg Briel (21 Agustus 1907 - 16 Mei 1980) adalah mantan perwira Polizei periode 1927-1935 yang kemudian bergabung dengan Wehrmacht dari tahun 1935 s/d 1945. Dia dianugerahi Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes pada tanggal 23 Juli 1942 sebagai Major serta Kommandeur Heeres-Flak-Bataillon 606 / 90.leichte-Afrika-Division, dan nantinya diserahi tanggungjawab sebagai Kommandeur Panzergrenadier-Regiment 200 sampai akhir keberadaan pasukan Poros di Afrika Utara, bulan Mei 1943. Jabatan terakhirnya adalah sebagai Kommandeur Grenadier-Regiment 57 / 79.Volks-Grenadier-Division. Pada saat perang berakhir di Eropa bulan Mei 1945, Briel sedang menjalani perawatan atas luka-luka yang dideritanya. Dia dibebaskan dari kamp tawanan Neu-Ulm pada tanggal 30 Juni 1945. Medali dan penghargaan lain yang diterima oleh Georg Briel: Dienstauszeichnung IV. Klasse (2 Oktober 1936); Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse (22 September 1939) und I.Klasse (30 Agustus 1940); Deutsches Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen (20 Maret 1940); Allgemeines-Sturmabzeichen (15 Januari 1942); Medaglia commemorativa della campagna italo-tedesca in Africa Italia (19 Januari 1942); Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz (3 Februari 1942); Medaglia d'Argento al Valore Militare Italia (18 Februari 1942); Deutsches Kreuz in Gold (20 Februari 1942); Ärmelband "Afrika" (12 April 1943); Heeres-Flak-Abzeichen (27 April 1943); serta Ordinul Steaua României. Dalam foto ini Briel mengenakan medali yang terakhir yang berasal dari Rumania. Medali tersebut tergantung di bawah saku seragamnya, disamping Eisernes Kreuz I.Klasse dan diatas Allgemeines-Sturmabzeichen




SS-Obersturmbannführer Fritz Witt (Kommandeur SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 1 / SS-Division [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler") dianugerahi medali Steaua Romaniei Order (Romanian Order of the Star) - Officer Class with Swords on the Ribbon of Military Virtue - oleh SS-Obergruppenführer und General der Waffen-SS Josef "Sepp" Dietrich (Kommandeur SS-Division [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler"). Medali asing sekutu Jerman ini telah diotorisasi melalui Dekrit Kerajaan Rumania No.2020 tertanggal 16 Juli 1942. Sebelumnya Witt telah menerima Military Order for Bravery in War 4th Class, 1st Grade (Bulgaria) pada tanggal 10 Juli 1942. Medali yang disebut terakhir tercantol di bawah Eisernes Kreuz I.Klasse. Foto terakhir memperlihatkan, dari kiri ke kanan: SS-Obergruppenführer und General der Waffen-SS Josef "Sepp" Dietrich (Kommandeur SS-Division [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler"), SS-Obersturmbannführer Fritz Witt (Kommandeur SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 1 / SS-Division [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler"), SS-Hauptsturmführer Paul Wernicke (Kommandant des Hauptquartier in der Stabes SS-Division [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler"), dan SS-Oberführer Walter Staudinger (Kommandeur SS-Artillerie-Regiment 1 / SS-Division [motorisiert] "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler")



Steaua României atau Ordinul Naţional "Steaua României" (Order of the Star of Romania atau National Order "Star of Romania") adalah penghargaan sipil tertinggi Rumania dan dianugerahkan oleh Presiden Rumania


Generalmajor Kurt Anger. Dia memakai Krimschild di lengannya sementara di leher dan dadanya terpampang Royal Bulgarian Order of St. Alexander, 2nd Class with Swords. Persis di bawah salib putih Bulgaria tersebut, terselip Steaua României di belahan seragamnya. Anger dianugerahi Krimschild karena dia pernah menjabat sebagai Arko 110 yang bertugas di Heeresgruppe Süd/11.Armee sampai dengan tahun 1942. Bagaimana dengan identifikasi pita medalinya yang panjang itu? Dari kiri ke kanan: 1. Prussian Iron Cross, 2nd Class (1914) with 1939 Bar; 2. War Merit Cross, 2nd Class with Swords; 3. Medal for the Winter Campaign in Russia 1941/1942 (“East Medal”); 4. tak diketahui; 5. Cross of Honor for Combatants 1914-1918; 6. Austrian War Commemorative Medal with Swords; 7. Armed Forces Long Service Award; 8. Armed Forces Long Service Award; 9. Commemorative Medal of 1 October 1938; 10. Hungarian War Commemorative Medal with Swords; 11. tak diketahui, meskipun kemungkinan dia adalah pita Turkish War Medal ("Iron Crescent") dengan bentuk bulan sabit tidak resmi. Berdasarkan peraturan, pitanya sendiri seharusnya dipakai di lubang kancing kedua (persis seperti Eisernes Kreuz II klasse) atau di baris medali. Pitanya berwarna merah dengan tambahan garis putih di pinggir untuk anggota militer, dan warna terbalik (merahnya di pinggir) untuk non-militer; 12. tidak diketahui (lagi!), tapi bentuknya seperti Romanian Commemorative Medal for the Crusade against Communism.



Di bawah ini adalah daftar yang berisikan nama-nama perwira Wehrmacht Jerman yang dianugerahi ordo Steaua Romaniei (Bintang Rumania) dan Coroana Romaniei (Mahkota Rumania), yang diambil dari Monitorul Oficial.
