    Hello all, this nice photo is searching for a new home. It shows an italian (?) diplomat with nice italian and foreign orders: Order of San Marino: Knight cross and commander; Order of the italian Crown: Knight cross; Venezuela Order of Bolivar: Knight Cross Photo was taken in Frankfurt am Main/ Germany! Very nice photo and best condition. asking price: 55 Euro including shipping costs as registered letter world wide!


  2. Hello all, it´s Kurt von Schleinitz! You will find his biography on that website also: http://www.germancolonialuniforms.co.uk/ Best regards Karsten Ek2 = MMV2 Last order = RumSt5 -> see
  3. Hello again, thanks for your input. But I was not asking for the rule of successions. I was asking for your argument with 5 and 10 years.... But don´t forget that there were also exceptions, see attached photo (from my ex-collection)! It shows a saxon NCO (Unteroffizier) with: GSWA-medal/ MEZ2 and sFAM A proud saxon with his saxon award on the last position So never say never! Best regards Karsten
  4. Hello, could you please explain 5 and 10 years for both FA-medals. I can't follow you in that case. FA-medal in bronce was awarded to enlisted men and FA-medal in silver was awarded to NCOs You wrote: the saxon medals should always come first or second, but never be third after an medal from the colonies. Are you sure? We have seen some bars wir the craziest succession of medals/ decorations But I don't like also the shown medal bar, due to other reasons. Best regards Karsten
  5. hello all, the photo shows Bayme Mohamed Husen! A former Askari. He fought together with his father for Lettow-Vorbeck in WW1 His father was KIA and Bayme Mohamed Husen was taken POW in 1917 The photo shows him as an acteur for the movie "Die Reiter von Deutsch-Ostafrika"! Best regards
  6. Hi, it could be identifiable. We have the Stanislaus ribbon on the last position! So it could be the Stanislaus 3rd class with swords. Some german fighter's received that award for their participation on the battle of the Peitang-Forts! Not many of them fought also in German-Southwestafrica! So may be identifiable. Best regards Karsten
  7. Hi all, I would suggest a "Marine-Oberstabsingenieur" or something like that. Most of them had the combination of RAO4 and KO4 Best wishes Karsten
  8. Hi all, and here the second one. It shows a unknown saxon colonial official with a nice combination of awards: KO4Xw DSWA-Denkm. for fighters SA3bX On the right side (next to his leg) is stamped the year 1908.....So we have to search for someone who had the nice combination of KO4Xw and SA3bX and who served also in Halle/a.S. in 1908! He has to be one of the following candidates: ProvAmtAssistent Bannier Karl DSWA KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 ProvAmtInsp Engst August R. DSWA KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 Intendanturreg Kemter Georg DSWA Feldintendantur KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1907 ProvAmtAssistent Kießling Karl F. DSWA KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 Feldlazarethinspektor Posselt Eduard DSWA Romansdrift KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 ObVeter Scholz Paul DSWA 1. Feldregiment (beritten) KrO4xw 1906 SA3bx 1906 Proviantamtassistent Schulze Emil O. DSWA KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 ProvAmtskontrolleuer Hille Ernst Hermann DSWA Karib KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 and Ober Intend. Sekr. Seifert who received also KO4Xw and SA3bX who is shown in "Rangliste der Intendanturbeamten für 1914 ". Seifert was born in 1873. So we have 9 candidates in total.I hope that of of them served in Halle/a.S. in 1908 Thanks a lot and best regards Karsten
  9. Hi all, after the sucessful identification of Hptm. von Schlichtegroll: I hope that´s also possible to identify the following two colonial officials. For first the prussian one. The photo shows a prussian colonial official with the following nice award-combination: KO4Xw AEZ DSWA-Denkm. for fighters Centenary-medal The photo was taken in Oels (in Silesia/ near of Breslau) Only 4 candidates are possible....Those candidates are: Kaserneninspektor Annighöfer--> received KO4Xw in 1907 Lazarettinspektor Blümel--> received KO4Xw in 1908 but retired also in 1908 Lazarettinspektor Dybilasz--> received KO4Xw in 1906 Kaserneninspektor Sasse--> received KO4Xw in 1906 but served in Plön (cadet school) after his colonial service After those infos I would tend to Kaserneninspektor Annighöfer and Lazarettinspektor Dybilasz but of course we can not exclude Kaserneninspektor Sasse and Lazarettinspektor Blümel. So I hope that one of those 4 candidates served in Oels between 1907 and 1914. It would be great if someone could give back a name to this nice photo. Thanks and best regards Karsten
  10. Hi Chip, thanks a lot for your confirmation...... .....and unnecessary posts don´t exist Thanks and best regards Karsten
  11. Thanks a lot again Glenn, so the photo must be taken between 1905 and March 1909. Nice Best regards Karsten
  12. Wow thanks a lot Glenn Hans von Schlichtegroll received his MVO4 on 11th March 1911 but when did he receive his RAO4? I was thinking that the china-medal is a bronze one because it´s looking so dark like the Jubiläumsmedaille.....so I was researching in the wrong way Thanks a lot for identify him. Best regards Karsten
  13. Hi all, today I received this nice and interesting photo. It shows a bavarian officer (captain) with the following awards: -Jubiläumsmedaille -SA3b -China-medal in bronze for fighters (in my opinion it looks like a bronze one) -bavarian long service cross for 24 years Unfortunately I´m not able to identify the insignia on his shoulderboard but the photo was taken in Munich.... ....so I assume that he was a member in one of the following regiments: Infanterie-Leib-Regiment 1. Infanterie-Regiment „König“ 2. Infanterie-Regiment „Kronprinz“ Right? I checked all bavarians participants of China 1900/1901 but no sucess..... ....my hottest candidat is: OberleutnantFärber Bayr. 11. I.-R. 7 Unfortunately the SA3b is missing....but I have no idea if Oblt. Färber received the saxon award some years later. For those candidates I couldn´t also find any infos: Leutnant Frhr. v. Stengl Bayr. 22. I.-R. 5 HauptmannKraft Bayr. 23. I.-R. 6 HauptmannGraf v. Berri della Bosia gen. v. Külberg auf Gansheim u. Berg Bayr. I.-L.-R. 7 LeutnantRaila Bayr. 2. I.-R. 5LeutnantNeumaier Bayr. 10. I.-R. 7LeutnantLeeb Bayr. 4. F.-R. So one of them could also be possible.....If nobody of them would match, it could also be possible that the china medal is a steel-version. I would be very thankful if someone could identify him. I have only the bavarian 1911-Rangliste and had no sucess. Maybe he was retired at 1911. Thanks a lot and have a nice day Karsten
  14. Hi Andreas, thanks a lot for your fast respond. Very nice to see the "african" decorations of Albert Freiherr von Schrenck von Notzing Do you also have the certificates? Or is there anything on the backside of those awards which shows that these belong to Albert Freiherr von Schrenck von Notzing?? Best regards Karsten
  15. Hi Andreas, can I ask why? Yes I have a photo of Albert Freiherr von Schrenck von Notzing, see here: Best regards Karsten
