H061181 PHOTOGRAPH "Turkish Order of the Medjidie". (Photographie)

A 14cm x 9cm studio portrait of a German Officer wearing the Turkish Order of the Medjidie, military class, neck order with crossed swords. The Order of the Medjidie (Turkish: Mecidiye Nişanı, August 29, 1852 – 1922) is the name of a military and knightly order of the Ottoman Empire. The order was instituted in 1851 by Sultan Abdulmejid I and was awarded for outstanding services to the state by foreign nationals. It was last awarded in 1917. The officer in the photo also wears the Iron Cross First Class, the Wound Badge in Black, and an 11-place ribbon bar with 4 other Ottoman medals, including the Turkish War Medal (The “Gallipoli Star” or Harp Madalyası in Turkish) ribbon with a crescent moon device. The officer is posed with his wife and three children, one of whom is a soldier in the Army. The daughter on the far left appears to be wearing a jewelry clasp depicting a U-Boat. Fewer than 1,000 people combined received the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Class awards of the medal worn as a neck order.
