  5. There were a few thousands of Katholische/luth. Feldpfarrer, Feldhilfsgeistlicher, Feldpater and some Divisionspfarrer, Regimentspfarrer, and Feldpröpste and some of the Feldrabbiner Jews like Dr. Aron Tänzer A famous luth. priest was Rupert Mayer http://images.google.de/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fupload.wikimedia.org%2Fwikipedia%2Fcommons%2Fthumb%2F9%2F9b%2FB%C3%BCrgersaal_Eisernes_Kreuz_Rupert_Mayer.jpg%2F220px-B%C3%BCrgersaal_Eisernes_Kreuz_Rupert_Mayer.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fde.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FRupert_Mayer&h=161&w=220&tbnid=Of7qqG46zzRzWM%3A&docid=oc6VhfLH1vcReM&ei=N5QbWJ71FILxUu78lbgP&tbm=isch&client=firefox-b-ab&iact=rc&uact=3&dur=276&page=0&start=0&ndsp=32&ved=0ahUKEwje7OWSrY3QAhWCuBQKHW5-BfcQMwhAKB4wHg&bih=732&biw=1536 I am collecting photos of those guys.
  6. I know where all those bars a coming from - a big dealer in Northern America. In my opinion they have some good stuff but also a lot of very damn thrash also in the imperial session. A lot of pieces were bought in Germany in different auctions or at some dealers.
  7. I dont know, if the Oldenburg VK is a good piece. The rest looks good. But i would not pay that priece for it.
  8. Got this a few days ago. The seller said, it was taken in Syrie (Syria). Iron cross, Liakat with Swords and Galipolli star. Some notes on the back. Is there anybody out there, who can read arabian? Thanks. I can read Le A. Djemal (french) Herm(ann) Kleeberg or Klessberg le corps 20 Di. means Korps 20. Division
  9. No i dont have any dates. I only know, that he lived in Berlin. But i like those two pics very much.
  10. Yes - here we are. It was a jubilee photo because of his 50 years service 1865 - 1915 Seems that he got the non combatant one early - the most of them were awarded post war
  11. Hi to all and Hi Rick... hope you are looking down to us. I can confirm, that the person of that pic is RR Fritz Zingler. I could get a jubilee photo of him a few years ago with his signature on the back. It was taken in 1915 - and shows his medal bar without the wound badge. Now i got Ricks photo from the shop of S.Wöschler so i have 2 pics of him. I think it is in good hands. I have never seen a non combatant with an wound badge. It is an absolutely rare pic.
  12. This is one of the 1st Frackbars as i began to collect non combatant´s decorations of Imperial Germany. This beast is killing me. I did a lot of research about it but i cannot ID the wearer till today. I used Siekmann 17, Handbuch d. Deutschen Reiches 1918, the 1914 Ranklist and the Hof und Staatshandbuch 1918 and also the Intendanturliste 1929 Only a few persons had the LDA 1. Klasse of Bayern - but no one had this combination. What do we know about him? No Centenarmedal - so he began his career after 1897 (Did bavarians got the Centenarmedal??) He was a Bavarian higher official or military official, because he got the 1905 JM and the LDA 1 Bayern He did not stay in Bavaria (i think so), because he did not earn the Militärverdienstkreuz/Orden, the Heiliger Michael or the König Ludwig Kreuz (or may be he earned higher grades - Steckkreuze or Halsorden..) The bar was made in 1917 or later (VK für Kriegshilfe) the IC on non combatant ribbon was only awarded till 1921. He has the KO3 (Godet) and the RAO4 (Neuhaus & Sohn) so he must have been a member of the Rats or Direktorenklasse, a Landrat, major or a Regierungspräsident....... I don`t have the lippe rolls of the Kriegsverdienstkreuz am weissen Band. Seems that he died bevor 1935, because of the missing Hindycross (or he did not like it...) Now my question to all research gnomes - could you please help me or make a statement - what do you think about that bar?
  13. Hi Roman I don`t think he was a Lipper Junge - he is wearing his prussian awards first.
  14. may be a marine guy - a lots of them had the FAK II. and sometimes the 1st class
  15. A prussian member of the Rats or Direktorenklasse. I think there would be a chance to ID this guy with the HDR 1918 or the StHB 1918
  16. Nearly sure, that i got him. In the last 2 days , i`ve read the HDR 1918 3 times. My eyes are still burning. Simon, Königlich preussischer Geheimer Regierungs und Gewerberat bei der Regierung zu Düsseldorf Mitglied des Reichsgesundheitsamtes Eingesetzt bei der St. Ausstellung der Arbeiterwohlfart im Ressort des Reichswirtschaftsministeriums. EK2w RAO4 KO3 Bay. LDA1 Luitpoldmedaille Lippe KVK am weissen Band Only the war aid cross is missing. But it`s possible that he got it after the HDR 1918 was printed. the WAC was awarded till the mid of 1924. (~600000 awards) I think i could be very happy
  17. Somme 100 years ago

    The person on the right is Georg Utz. The peoples of his village said, that he must have been a good harp player. My father still has his harp standing in his house. The other two persons are friends of him. If i am right, the person in the middle is his best friend, who survived the war. The person on the left wears the IC ribbon and it seems, that he was Unteroffzier. I bought him some flowers for the graves of the "Unbekannter Soldat". (volksbund.de) Wuerttemberg had only good divisions... (Ludendorff). Furchtlos und Treu! Damn war, may be he shot your brothers and they shot him.. choose files... Click to choose files

    Ruhet in Frieden RIP. In Erinnerung an Krgfw. /Musketier Georg Utz , RIR 121 - my great grandfathers brother Died on 1st of July 1916 by an MG bullet (head shot) at Beaumont / Somme Hope you died fast. Buried in a mass grave at the frontline. I still have some things and photos of him. http://www.denkmalprojekt.org/2009/vl_wuertt_rir_nr_121_11Komp_wk1.htm His best friend survived the war, he served in Pionierregiment 13 Ulm (Minenwerfer)
  19. turkish-militaria.com Mr Canbaz has a great collection. The sabers were given for war merit and imo the written date is correct. It looks like a turkish made one. I have 3 bars with a liakat on it. But ask our turkish member Demir. If i am right there are also fakes out there.
  20. Thanks. Yes, those NC ones are really nice.
