    BB&Co : Binder Brüder & Co., Lüdenscheid

    Vom Gewerbeumfang gesehen, ist es die alte Bezeichnung einer GmbH & Co KG. (wenn ich unterstelle, das das eine deutsche Fertigungsstätte war) - die Bezeichnung gab es jedoch auch im Ausland. BB & Co. is an still unknown official manufacturer of EH.
  2. Hi - the order means no HV devices on shoulderboards of officials of the RKG. I think your shown boards are pieces of the Heeresjustiz - Heeresjustiz is no RKG.
  3. https://www.google.de/search?q=reichskriegsgericht+schulterklappen&client=firefox-b-ab&dcr=0&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi94-7l2OnYAhVHy6QKHS8xD48Q_AUICygC&biw=1536&bih=734#imgrc=8qVpsC9USAb9RM: At the Reichskriegsgericht they had no HV devices. At my shown pieces there were never a device. Good question...
  4. what do i have here, Paul? I would say: Reichskriegsgerichtssekretär (= the rank of an Lt.) In the middle green - the outside is held in red. No better pic possible.
  5. Yes, but the preowner (Voreigentümer) could also replace the silvered MMM in a GMMM. The SMMM was often awarded to prussian units. It was the equivalent of the prussian IC2nd class. There are no notes, that the GMMM was awarded to prussians at all. The only possibility is, that the soldier has been a wuerttemberg NCO (a citizen) served in a prussian regiment.
  6. Did i understand it correctly? You replaced the GMMM ? If yes - hm... the GMMM was only in a few pieces given to non-wuerttemberg units. I would it replace it on an typical wuerttemberg medal bar with for example: EK2 - GMMM - FEK - DA How much weight does it have?
  7. von Watter, Haas and Pfeil are the correct persons. I agree. A nice photo, perfect to stay in Germany . hehe... I have a bigger Nachlass of a member of the IR 124. Rommels first regiment. They fought in the Argonnen.
  8. The white ribbon with blue stripes could be a peacetime MVK (bavaria) - i dont think he got a MVO. The user Hündchen (i dont know if he is active in this forum) knows a lot of about the FAM. There are some lists with it.
  9. In my opinion an official`s bar (Unterbeamter) may be a paymaster (Unterzahlmeister or something in that way) Unusual combination. IMO the FAM is a piece made by Scharffenberg in silver.
  10. A original, good conditioned standard Württemberg bar. Made in the early 1920s
  11. I think may be possible to ID that guy. A reactivated higher veteran with RAO4Kr. and i think KO3 I think may be the 1st and the last one could be ID-ed. Last position on the 1st one looks like a Schaumburg jubilee medal. On pos. 3 ottoman red crescent medal and on pos. 4 finnish? The last one shows some Saxon Herzogtümer stuff and on the last pos. a bulgarian MMO. I think only the bavarian one with MMO on Friedensband could be ID-ed. May be a higher medic rank who also served in both colonial wars. What the hell is that?
  12. OK, i would have a few names to check. I´d like to know if they were reactivated in 1935 (36).
  13. Does anybody have the RL of 1936? I need some help for trying to ID some medalbars of Zahlmeister/Intendanturbeamte. I have a few names to look. Are there decorations listed? Thanks for help.
  14. Here one of mines. Silesian eagles on non combatant bars are not often to find. The piece is a probemässige Anfertigung made of blackend iron.
  15. https://www.google.de/search?q=könig+wilhelm+von+württemberg&client=firefox-b-ab&dcr=0&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwid-7b4t7LXAhUDzaQKHQ_iC5UQ_AUICigB&biw=1536&bih=734#imgrc=zhFICQBWxFVDGM: They hated the prussians - here the two bavarians. The photo was taken in bavaria. May be after the war, because of he is wearing his MVK3X after the IC.
  16. Das Alpenkorps war eine legendäre Truppe, die seines gleichen suchte. Schau Dir mal an, was die an höchster Front gegen Italien und auf dem Balkan geleistet hatten. Das waren Spezialisten und ich bin stolz, das auch das württembergische Gebirgsbataillon darunter war. Hieraus sind hervorragende Kommandeure entstanden wie Rommel. Schörner war auch am Isonzo. Da konnten sich andere Armeen nur die Augen reiben.... Eine super Urkunde, ich hatte mal eine und habe diese dämlicherweise verkauft. Würde ich nicht wieder. Es gibt davon aber auch Kopien. Sorry my english isn`t good enough.
  17. A nice pic. Sometimes you can find those saxon styled decorations. He wears the FAM bevor the IC - because of the saxon regulations. I have a pic with bavarians and one with a württemberger - the also are wearing trifold ribbons.
