  1. Hi ! I need help for a possible identification of a recipient of the wuertt. golden bravery medal. I am looking for infos (which decorations he also got) about -Joseph Raßler (Rasler) von Gammerschwang (auf Weitenburg), (a german baron) Leutnant - he got the wuertt. golden bravery medal on the earliest date (1.11.1914) in Ulanenregiment 20 later he was Rittmeister and died in 1951. and i need infos about some guys of the Wuertt. IR 120 -Bazing Otto Lt. (Golden: 3.5.17) news: At June 1915 to Offizierskurs at Berlin-Döberitz kommandiert, 1919 as Lt. in Gefangenschaft (POW) -Friedrich Planck Lt. (Golden: 1.11.14) as Oberlt. Sept. 1917 in Gefangenschaft (POW) -Schultz Paul, Lt. (Golden: 21.12.14) wounded Juli 1916 10./ and 11./ 120 Thanks.
  2. THANK YOU. Damn - now i have to begin again... but i always learn more and more.. - there are some more IR120 recipients of the GMVM. I am very happy, that the most of the Stuttgart Archive military material survived the last war. Imo. he only could served in the IR120 or UR20 because in his Nachlass there were some shoulder boards of it. (all a Leutnant`s rank) For the UR20 i only had two plausible recipients: von Raßler and Klee Gobert. - Klee Gobert`s bar stays in my collection. He did not get the FOIIX I found some more informations about Schultz in the WAF : http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?t=869362
  3. unbelieveable. Thanks again. On the painted pic it seems that he´s wearing the ribbons to the IC2nd class and the wuertt. golden bravery medal - on the right you can see the EK1. So i think he`s no recipient for my bar. In most times Subalternoffiziere got the FOIIX bevor/with the golden bravery medal. So it seems, that my guy was an 120er. Are there any informations about Schultz, Bazing and Planck if they got the FOIIX ? Thats the bar i would like to ID. - The wearer must have been a Subalternoffizier. I know that, UR 20 and IR 120 both fought at Ypern. Especially i like the Yperncross with that combat clasp on it. Only ~ 1600 Subalternoffiziere were awarded with the golden medal. Imo. the FOIIX is an early piece which was made in 1914 - latest till the mid of 1916. The bar is a typical version of the 1920s (version of the IC and because of Yperncross/Kyffhäuser) The position of the golden bravery medal is correct - it had an higher rank as the FOIIX. You should move to Germany and serve as an Archivrat (Beamter im höheren Archivdienst) 👍
  4. Hi the most rolls are online. I checked them. Was a lot of work. But i cannot find Raßler in the UR 20 - i only found him in the 1914 RL. but without a decoration. I need to know if he got the Friedrich II with X
  5. Top ! Thank you. Yes, the eagle is missing. i did not notice that.

    Cased Turkish War Medal sold by EMEDALS

    new made by a German Collector , Mr.Faruk Cambaz Who says, that Canbaz (no Cambaz) is a faker? He has or had a very nice and big collection of turkish militaria of WW1 and very nice pieces. I would not pay 670 USD for that piece - although it would be an original one.
  7. Hi again, I got some post cards and the shown is one of it . What do we know about the recipient / shown officer? -Oberleutnant (1st Lt.) -Bavarian His bar shows: -IC, bavarian MVK 3rd class with X and crown, Hindycross and 2 Wehrmacht LSM. (4 & 12 years) So the pic must have been taken in 1936 - 39 (no war merit medals like IC or WMC) In WW1 he served as an NCO (Unteroffizier/Vizefeldwebel) In his button it seems that he´s wearing a blood order for the photography - ( because of the ribbon definitely no bavarian bravery medal.) The card was signed. I can read Aicher oder Licher - what do you think? zähringer4.tif zähringer4.tif
  8. Hi again ! For my photo collection i was looking for a guy with a finnish award. (no so easy to find) After a longer look-around i had the luck to find the following guy: On his bar: -EK2, Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz, Bremer Hanseatenkreuz, KuK MVK3 with war decoration and on the last pos. a finnish cross of liberty (???). Now my questions: Which grade do we have here? Is it possible, to ID that guy (Hauptmann - captain) - on the back we have a date and his signature. ("Gutes tuen das ist mein Wille" - sounds like Johanniter) Is he also a Johanniter knight? Thanks. zähringer2.tif zähringer3.tif

    Turkish Pilots Badge variations

    A saxon Heinrich guy. Unfortunately i have no pics with a ottoman flight badge, but these 2 guys with -i believe- ottoman uniform: - Genmaj. Artur Bopp (wuertt.) pic was taken 1911 at the Euphrat region - in this time he was LtCol. - Genmaj. Georg Bock von Wülfingen (saxon). pic was taken after 1918.
  10. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hohenlohe-Zentralarchiv_Neuenstein may be they could help you. Ex flammis orior.
  11. Show me a better pic of the Auflagen (devices), please. If they are OK - definitely a high ranking guy.
  12. Hi again. I would have a question to the shown pic. As you know, i do not understand much about uniforms and Uniformteile. Some of that wounded guys are wearing armshields - i can see a black cross on white ground (guy in the last line) The guy in the middle of the front line wears a silvered WB and a ribbon bar to the IC. He also wears an armshield and on his right arm a silvered stripe. What does the stripe mean? Some of the guys are wearing dead heads on their caps. They are looking like the SS ones. Are they from the Eiserne Division? One guy is wearing a MG sharpshooter´s badge. What means the sign ^ (open triangle) on a uniform? Is it a rank? Thanks for help. zähringer 1.tif
  13. Thank you very much, again. Yes, a kind of strange guys. I think the pic would be taken in 1919/20 in the upper silesian region and in a hospital. The armshield with the cross seems to be "Grenzschutz Ost".
  14. In WW1 Schörner was a war hero. In WW2 he mutated to a war criminal. After the war he was arrested many years.
  15. Thanks a lot. I will try to make a better detail pic. I think it is a Regimentsmedaille, too. But i have never seen that piece hanging on a bar.
  16. Hi again! I got this pic showing 2 bavarian frontfighters. The guy on the right Unteroffzier seems to be from a FLAK bataillon, because he´s wearing a Regimentsmedaille after his MVK3X (seem he got it as a EM) I`ve never seem this Regimentsmedaille. It shows some soldiers with a cannon attacking a airplane. Does anybody know more about that medal? Thanks. The pic (card) is ungelaufen. It was taken in Weissenburg (Franken) zähringer.tif
  17. Dohmen sounds like Rhineland - Düsseldorf could be possible
  18. I agree. Of course it could be the a MVO - but i cannot see the typical 2 little holes for the device. Reactivated ---> his later service in WW2 Reichswehr = 100.000 Mann Truppe most of the Berufssoldaten/Offiziere wurden entlassen und später um 1936 bei Wiedereinführung der Wehrpflicht wieder reaktiviert.
  19. Hello to all! Today i got a nice larger 7 place medal bar of a WW1/WW2 reactivated veteran for my collection. (may be some saw it at W. Hamburg) I only had a few informations about the recipient. With some kind of literature, my notes and Mr. Google i had the chance to identificate the guy - i am very lucky about that. The recipient was (Dr. jur.) Ascan Gustav Klee Gobert (he grew up in a Hamburg upper class family) - he had a 1/2 jewish father (his father was lawyer in Hamburg) and served as Kriegsfreiwilliger (7.8.1914 im Okt. 1914 zugeteilt dem 3. Eskadron) in the wuerttemberg Ulanenregiment 20 from 1914/ early 1916. He was promoted to -Gefreiter 9.12.14 -Unteroffizier 5.5.15 -Vizewachtmeister 4.12.15 and in March 1916 he got his Leutnants patent. (Leutnant d.R.) He was awarded with the Iron cross 2nd class (29.9.15) and the Hamburg Hanseatenkreuz (7.2.1916) as a Hamburger Jung. He leaved the Ulanenregiment and went to Jasta 37 as a fighter pilot (i think so, you can see a group picture at www.buddecke.de) with Ernst Udet and some other air guys. In this time he must have been awarded with the wuerttemberg golden bravery medal (i have his date: 6.9.1917) On the posted article Gobert stands on Pos.2 behind Ernst Udet. Only ~ 165 pilots (Moser book) were awarded with the golden bravery medal. Would be nice to know why he got the medal and what he did after joining the Jasta37. In March 1918 he was listed as the Commander of the Staffel. ("Gustav Gobert") Later he got the Hindycross and the bulgarian/hungarian war commemorativ medals for combatants. In WW2 he was reactivated and served as a Hauptmann in the Flak (Luftverteidigungskommando) of Hamburg and in occupied France. He got the clasp to the IC 2nd class and the war merit cross with X as you can see on his shown medal bar. You can find a lot of information about him in the Internet also in cause of his strange pre name Ascan. After the war ended he was Senator of Hamburg and member of the CDU party. He wrote some books and was awarded with the Großes Verdienstkreuz. One of his kids Boy Christian Gobert was an actor. There´s still an insurance company in Hamburg with the families name. What i want to know is also, is there a chance to ID the marker of the clasp??? The only one i know is, that this version is not a very early one. In the state archive of Stuttgart unfortunately no ID card/photo of the 1930s with his name - i think may be in cause of his 1/2 jewish father. The golden bravery medal is not a real golden one - it is a veteran´s piece ("Weimarer Fertigung") of gilded bronce. But i also like the rare bar and his history very much and it has a suburb condition (on the back it has the "Reimann Berlin" pin) The other son - Ernst-Ascan Gobert served as Hauptmann in WW2 as pilot and got the KC (Ritterkreuz). He died in 1944 - KIA in the Leuna region. (see picture) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ascan_Klée_Gobert https://www.google.com/search?q=ascan+klee+gobert&client=firefox-b-ab&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi6sMuYlKHbAhUHBsAKHXQzAtwQ_AUoAXoECAEQAw&biw=1536&bih=732#imgrc=akQN_WnvZ-BotM:
  20. -reactivated veteran. -Württemberger -No Auflage on the ribbon on the württemberg MMM - so it should be the silver grade. -seems like an NCO who was promoted to Lt./1st Lt in the meantime of war. - in this rank he earned the Friedrich order knight2 X may be the bavarian MVO4X/ austrian MMC with war decoration. later he was reactivated - i think he finished war as a captain or major in the etappe (because of the war merit cross 2nd class X and clasp to the IC2) In my opinion no real chance to ID that guy. May be he served at the italian front (Alpenkorps).
