  1. 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.

  2. Hi again,

    I got some new pics -  and i have a question about those following two:

    -photo dated 1920 in Munich with unreadable signature

    I would like to know, what kind of uniform is he wearing. He looks like an EM oder NCO.

    But he has geflochtene Schulterklappen on his shoulders. What means T1 on his Kragenspiegel?

    Is that Freikorps?

    The 2nd shown pic seems to be a hessian doctor. He is wearing a Phillipsorder knight, Miltärsanitätskreuz 1870 and a prussian Kriegsdenkmünze

    Can we ID that guy? Some kind of Stabsarzt? The pic was taken in Darmstadt.




  3. I`ve had some space in my house, so i decided to buy some bigger portrait pics of imperial guys.

    Here we have Mr. Leutnant - seems that he was a Waldeck cititzen. The photo was taken in Bad Wildungen.

    No name... damn. He wears both IC, the Waldeck Ehrenkreuz 4 Klasse and the silvered merit medal with X ????

    I know, that only a few hundred of the Ehrenkreuz 4. Kl. were awarded. I think bevor he promoted to Lt. he must have been a NCO

    Can we ID him ?




  4. What do we have here? A guy from the schönen Badner`land. A civil pic with a large Ordensspange.

    I got the pic from the famous Lachmund collection.

    He wears the IC, Baden SVM, Baden LDAII, Baltenkreuz, Baden LSC15y or Prussian 25y, and

    2 Freikorps medals and the IC 1st class, Baltenkreuz 1st class, WB and cross of the Freikorps Awaloff.

    Look at his cold eyes. I would bet, that he later went to the NSDAP.




  5. Thanks for watching.

    A few years ago, i got this nice parade mounted Frackbar but ... no name :(

    What do we know?

    The earliest time the bar was made is late 1916 (here i would bet 1917) because of the war aid cross.

    He also got the Oldenburg houseorder 2nd class with crown, the Oldenburg FA-cross for

    non combatants and the bavarian Ludwigscross - here we have the magnetic iron version.

    If i am right the blackened iron pieces were early ones, so he got it may be in 1916 or 17

    Seems that he got the non combatanat  IC after 1918 - it`s a single mounted one ("pentagonales Band")

    They were awarded till the earlies 1920s.

    What about the HO?

    Was the 2nd class with crown founded in 1905?

    I think my piece was made by Knauer Oldenburg.

    Are there rolls out there?

    ImO the owner of that bar must have been a civil guy may be a Fabrikant, priest, medic or a higher official`s rank.

    He was a prussian.

    Thanks for reply.
