  1. Thanks Andreas,

    Interesting regarding the KVK - maybe this is the award he is wearing through the button-hole?

    I wasn't aware that the Friedrich-August Kreuz came with a clasp! But I'm not an expert on decorations.

    Your choice for number 6 appears to be a good shout. I thought it would be easy to find the answer due to the clasp, but such was not the case. The last 3? awards are unfortunately too vague for me to identify. As most of these medals were fairly common I suspect that there were a fair few officers with this combination...

    Thanks for your help! :) 


  2. Hello all,

    Not sure if this is the right section to be hosting this, but here goes: I am posting a few photos of Luftwaffe officers and I am hoping that you knowledgeable folk will be able to identify their awards - and perhaps even identify the wearer?! Here is the first one. Does anyone know what awards are displayed on his ribbon bar?

    Thanks a lot for all your help,

    Matt.

  3. Hi all,

    I wondered if anyone could tell me what award this abbreviation above the EK2 signifies (SRVM?). The man in question was a Gefreiter in Jäger Battalion 2 in 1914. And he was born in Reichenau (Zittau) if this helps?

    Oh, and this is from the Bavarian archives. The guy's name is Kurt Anders and his date of birth was 17.06.1893.

    Thanks a lot.
