Decorations & Awards:

Braemer was highly decorated during World War I. Note he held both the Royal Hohenzollern House Order and the Princely Hohenzollern Honor Cross. Despite the close similarity in names, these were two separate yet affiliated orders. The first one was the personal house order of Kaiser Wilhelm II, the King of Prussia and Emperor of Germany, while the second one was the personal house order of the Kaiser's Catholic cousins in Sigmaringen. Both decorations were virtually identical in appearance except for different centrepieces and mottos, VOM FELS ZUM MEER ("From the Mountains to the Sea") and FÜR TREUE UND VERDIENST ("For Fidelity and Merit") respectively.
