  1. I don`t collect SE`s but nice pics out there.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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)
  5. 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
  6. Very nice bars out there. Unfortunately i do not have a real saxon medal bar.
  7. i don`t think, that the No. 18 is a Japanese one.

    Turkish Nurse Safiye Hüseyin Elbi with TWM

    The 1st shown pic - is it from a book - or is it a period postcard of her?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. smaller prussian bars are usually not easy to ID or not to ID.

    TWM the war medal questions

    There are a lot of different pieces you can collect. Personally i like the hallmarked or mm pieces most. Pieces with screw are very hard to find. imo the rarest version is the version of JHW with "935" and Kleeblatt mark or a M. Hansen with screwback. I have only seen 2 in the last years. Sometimes you can find pieces at emedals.ca
  15. i think your piece is post war. as you know from the WAF it was given by the Hohenzollern till the 1950s.

    TWM the war medal questions

    Imo also the box is a modern fake. it is made of old style to look more authentic. But wait for other opinions. There are a lot of fakes of the TWM out there. it is really a minefield. Be careful. If i were you i would look around to find a period BB&Co piece. It is the most common version.
