    He's a priest or some other denominational pastor, I think.

      I don't think so bevause he is wearing the same in a lower class on the medal bar. Maybe something from WW1 or a foreign country.

        Deutsche Orden Marianerkreuz; Teutonic Order.

        From Worthpoint: The Cross was instituted in 1871 by the DEUTSCHER RITTERORDEN and was given to Christian nobility who served as orderly or more common donated money to the order (nicknamed nobility dogtag).

        I guess it would be equivalent to the Order of St. John.

          I have no idea what it is but if it is as Guy stated, the Mariener cross where is the roundel. I don't see it on the picture first shown or are there various classes of it and therefore no roundel?

            It is the Austrian Teutonic Order.

                  So, not only is he wearing the Austrian Teutonic Order around his neck, he also wears a Deutsche Orden Marianerkreuz on his medal bar.

                    Did this photo sell on Ebay? I had it in my watch list, as it looked like a copy, then it disappeared.

                          Perhaps a member here was selling it and realized that it is an unusual photo, and decided to keep it.

                            A very interesting thread, especially regarding the Knights of the Teutonic Order -- thanks to everyone who participated!

                              Interesting thing is the on 6 September 1938 Hitler dissolved the Teutonic Order in Austria (following the Anschluss) because it was closely connected to the Hapsburg dynasty. This photo is post-1939, so it might not have been authorized for wear. The Teutonic Order was restored by the Austrian Republic in 1947 and continues as the charitable Deutscher Orden with its Chapterhouse in Vienna.
