  6. Hallo Der Preuße, During WW 2 my family was displaced several times and unfortunately only few photographs survived.
  7. DER PREUSSE, I send you private message - hope it went thorough. Regards, FRITZEL
  8. Hi The Prussian, ofcouse I know his name - may I PM you in this matter ? I do not want to plaster his name all over net. In my post about his original unit Marine See Batalion you will find his picture and original post card he wrote to his fiance family ( future wife ) in 1914. Cheers, FRITZEL
  9. Hallo Der Preuße, Hi GreyC, Thank you for your reply and input. The Prussian, Thanks for detailed maps of Krim - truly appreciated here. Now thanks to you man, I can start track of my family member whereabouts in WW 1. Since he was severely wounded in Flanders previous year he got transfered to East Front. In 1918 as a Stabgefreiter /Transaltor / he spend whole 1918 in Ukraine until he got sick with Malaria virus. P.S. If you have more info on troops/ units in Odessa that will be great. Sincerely, FRITZEL
  10. Hallo Der Preuße, Sir, Please accept my sincere apology for my use of wrong grammar form in my previous post. I am so embarrassed by that and from now on I will stick to English ( translating in to foreign language via google may produce more embarasemant for me ) If you do not mind - I would like to ask you few more questions in regard to German units in WW1. Some of my questions may be trivial to you but they are very important to me and may shed some new light in my research. Here we go: 1. How often Germans updated Armee - Verordnungsblatt / Verlustlisten ? ( I came across information that all casualties were counted in ten day period - wounded and dead where added every 10 days ) Is this a true statement ? ( if someone is listed as wounded on certain day - does it mean that it occured about 2 weeks earlier- prior to that date ??? 2. Is there a record or list of decorated soldiers who received Eisernes Kreuz I and II Klass ? if so where and how to obtain such records??? 3. What is Sanitätsbericht über das Deutsche Heer und Marine im Weltkriege 1914-18 ??? - please briefly explain if possible. 4. And Last VI. SeeBattalion - ( Reserve in 1914 ) formed from new conscripts had 4 Kompannien ( 5,6,7,8 ) and II. and IV. and VI. ( 3 Battalonen ) ( later thet add VII so 4 total ) formed 2nd Regiment Marine Infanterie stationed in Flanders.- Do I got this right ??? Please advise ... Sincerely, FRITZEL
