  1. Hi, and this is the titel of his disseratation: ¬Ein Fall von Tetanus mit interessantem Rückenmarksbefunde. GreyC
  2. Hi, as I collect German CDV´s I got this one recently. On the back it says in relatively new hand Danish Life Guard. However the photo was taken at a studio in Altenberg in Saxony in the late 1870s, early 1880s. There is plenty of info on the studio available, but why should a Danish Life Guard have been photographed so far from home? A royal visit, perhaps? Or is it not a Danish soldier and he is from a different army? The bear skin cap seems to indicate Danmark, though. Can anybody help ID the nationality and unit of this chap, please? The shoulderboard shows a crown and a cipher. Thank you! GreyC
  3. Hi, the first one shows a medic of the Luftstreitkräfte treating a pilot/observer. GreyC
  4. The KTB of the 102. Inf. Div. for the time in question has survived and can be accesses at the National Archive. See here for details: https://www.deutsche-digitale-bibliothek.de/item/LZ53GQFCQUCF7RX7KABWWWTEEURXITGG GreyC Btw you seem to have put this question on other platforms and already gotten some infos beyond what you posted here. Why don´t you put it all upl, so that people who want to help you don´t waste time collecting infos you already have? GreyC
  5. Hi, seen this? Gives unit and rank. GreyC https://www.trave-militaria.de/archiv/2228-anerkennungsurkunde-und-ehrenblatt-dr.-horst-wieckert.htm
  6. Hi, these are informations that will help narrow it down, don´t you think? Interestingly there is no officer by the name of Baum listed in the Ehrenrangliste or it´s appendices who served with a Saxon unit. GreyC
  7. Hi, I am not sure. Did you notice the osmanic medal (Galipoli Star) and is he wearing a turkish belt buckle? A high res close up might help. The hat also points east. Could I have a scan of the back with name and possible address of the photo-studio, please? GreyC
  8. Hi, with regard to the Melderegister the Stadtarchiv does have email. GreyC
  9. Hi, I know Dresden was bombed and destroyed heavily during WW2. But have you asked at the Dresden Stadtarchiv if the Melderegister of that period of 1914 etc has survided. He wont´have been listed as soldier. But if he had lived in Dresden as civilian and if the Melderegister of that time still exists you should find him in it. Lot´s of ifs I am afraid.... GreyC
  10. Oops, messed it up. meant to say second. Sorry. Got the same illustration. GreyC
  11. If you mean the tassel, it shows to what battailon and company he belonged. He was part of the 1st company, most likely. GreyC
  12. Hi, interesting document. I wonder if Hptm. Schön was active in a different (hanseatic) regiment before coming to the RIR25. He got the award during a time in which the regiment had been stationed in Metz for quite some time (from July 1915 onwards to 1917) with no real chance to do something worth being awarded the Hanseatenkreuz for. Happy Easter, GreyC
  13. Hi, the Ehrenrangliste 1914-18 of 1926 lists a Körner as Major a.D. with the FAR 52 with no further info which means that he spent his whole time with this regiment and was given leave after the war. No regimental history seems to be known. GreyC
