    • NCO’s in three different „outfits“
      By Chris Boonzaier · Posted
      Hi, I am guessing the EK ribbon was not usually meant for the Drillich, but Artillery Units seem to have worn a lot of Drillich during the war... maybe more than was initially planned for the Drillich. If it became a "standard dress" as opposed to just a "Fatigue duty" dress, maybe they began to wear the ribbon?

      By The Prussian · Posted
      Hello Jens! I´ve seen that jacket before. I think it´s one of the Drillichjackets, Kraus describes in vol.I, pages 235-236. There are different Drillichs mentioned, so I think, it´sone of them with a "self sewed-on pocket". Was it ususal to waer an EKII on a Drillich?

      Hello Michael,  Thank you for the explanation.  That makes sense.  Here, doctors I've seen are of the Captain rank or above.  Do you have any images of these slides with the medical emblem on them?  Are they embroidered onto the field slides as well? Regards Paul

    • Armenian Holocaust
      By Hoss · Posted
      cries gently whisper on winds eternal Who was it that said religion is the root of all evil? Dates: 1515 Sultan Selim and the promise of free land by appointed governor Idris Hakim to Kurdish chieftains. Over the following centuries they stole staved massacred reduced Armenians to paupers and stripped away any rights whatsoever. 1878 Treaty of Berlin, 1895 May Reform Plan were European powers attempts addressed to the Ottoman Empire on reforms,, nothing happened instead in 1896 they went on the first 'modern' extermination campaign slaughtering tens of thousands. On February 8 1914, the signing of the third and last international agreement (including the Ottoman Government) did nothing in effect Turkish leaders vowed to exterminate all Armenians in Asia-Minor. During the war they pretty much sealed off the country and murdered over 1.5 million people no-one knows the exact number. >It was at first communicated to you that the government, by the order of the Jamiet, had decided to destroy completely all the Armenians living in Turkey,,,an end must be be put to their existence, however criminal the measures taken may be, and no regard must be paid to either age or sex nor to conscientious scruples. (Minister of the Interior, Talaat 16/9/15)< Above from a paper prepared by a Mr A.O.Sarkissian BA MA PhD his family was massacred 1915. The gent is formerly of Syracuse and Illinois Universities and worked as an analyst in International Relations for the Library of Congress. When their allies Germany repeatedly sent representations,, the Turks basically told them to bugger off, and mind their own business. Eric        
    • Armenian Holocaust
      By Peter J · Posted
      Of course in happened. The method was similar to how the Germans marsched out the natives into the Kalahari dessert and starved them to death. What's rarely mentioned in conjunction with the Armenian episode is the reason for these dramatic occurances.

      Lieber Berhard, Ich bedanke mich,  Kann davon ausgehen das mein urgrosswater dann beim 81. dabei war? Ausserdem weist wer der mann sein kann? Ich fand dies http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg_Sick Anzac day ist schon toll, bloss in den letzten jahren wird es immer mehr wie Disney Land Parade. Als ich vor 25 Jahren  es zum ersten mal sah fand ich es würdiger. gruss Andi
