  1. I was not 100 % sure about the combination, so i did not place a bid - and i do not like Sedlatzek pieces so much. The FAM is i.m.o. a piece on a peacetime ribbon. Ask the user hündchen. He knows a lot of about saxon decorations.
  2. imo not sure to id - but a good Vorschlag. imo the bar was made in the late 1930s.
  3. Any chance to id. the marker of the clasp? Stefan, are your here? Now i got a book about him. He crashed two times (1917/18) with his airplane and was 30 % war disabled. (i think he got the WB black for it) He finished WW2 as a Major and was never a member of the NSDAP. He also got the war aid cross 1st class 1943 and i think for his service at the FLAK (Hamburg was bombed several times) the clasp to the IC 2nd class. He wrote that he had a bottle of whiskey with Udet - and so they became a good friendmanship till Udet died in the 1940s. In March 1918 he was promoted to commander of Jasta 37
  4. There is no chance to ID that guy without a name. The 1st red cross medal is wrong. You need to chance it in a 2nd class (with red enamel) The König Ludwig cross was a mass decoration. What we know is, that this decorated person was a prussian - may be a medic. The bar was made in the mid 1930s.
  5. I don`t collect SE`s but nice pics out there.
  6. Bayern: You have a big knowledge about the German Army. Did you study German history ? I have a pic with a marine guy from Siam. It was a prince who was sent to Germany for military education.
  7. Ich drück Dir die Daumen. I found my great grandfather last year - 103 years after the war began. I have searched over 1 year to find him. I ony knew, that he was a medic and later he served as an Chauffeur for a Feldpfarrer on the western front. Late in the night, i found his data. Ich fror und freute mich zugleich. Danach dachte ich: Urgroßvater ich habe Dich gefunden. In the late 1930s he died in cause of Malaria.
  8. Who is it? In my opinion a saxon Major or Lt. Col. - the photo was taken in Dresden. He wears the -Militär St. Heinrich Ritter (Mil. St. Henry knight) -Verdienstorden (merit order) -Albrecht Ritter 1 mit X (Albrecht 1 with X) - IC 2nd class - MVO 4 (X) mit Krone (bav. MMO 4 (X) with Crown) -Braunschweig Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse am Kämpferband (Brunswick war merit cross 2nd class for comb.) - IC 1st class an wound badge silver grade Thanks for helping again. (the pic is from my collection)
  9. Hi thanks. He is a german officer in türkischen Diensten. Dort erhielt er i.d.R. eine Rang höher. Also z.B. preussischer Major = osmanischer Oberstleutnant. The photo studio is PHoto Baum Dresden He did not write his name.- the card was written to a Hauptmann a.D. Baum in Chemnitz in 1923
  10. Very nice bars out there. Unfortunately i do not have a real saxon medal bar.

    Turkish Nurse Safiye Hüseyin Elbi with TWM

    The 1st shown pic - is it from a book - or is it a period postcard of her?
  12. Ragg, Hermann (later Werkmeister) geb. 9.1.1896 wohnhaft: Tuttlingen, Liptingerstr. 94 GMVM als Uffz. R.I.R. 120 12.1.1917 Trumpp and Jakob: No members of the OGM.
  13. And what about him? Some kind of Klempnerladen on his frack. It is god`s Büttel. One of my favourite´s photos. Much better than the shown one at Ebay. He had also the IC on non-combatant ribbon. And that one. Meet Excellenz Faulhaber. These cards were given to german prisoners which were interniert in Switzerland. He said this famous words: "Ihr wart bereit für das Vaterland zu sterben - nun seid bereit für das Vaterland zu leben..." Faulhaber was one of the few recipients of the bavarian MVO (breast star) with ribbon for war merit. I also collect photos of priest, Feldpater, Feldpröbste, Kriegspfarrer.
  14. smaller prussian bars are usually not easy to ID or not to ID.
