  1. Hi Gents. these are mine. I'll photograph them as a group first. I do love 'em and I hope you do too. I will scan them singly if you are interested and let me know.... tony AH and German together above... Sadly nothing on the reverse of any of these. T
  2. I’m pretty sure the four pictures have been found together. However maybe the group pic isn’t related. I’m surprised to think that, if they still wore recognisable Uhlan uniform, that they wouldn't mark the crosses with some reference to it. Mind you - after 100 years.... cheers gents tony

    Hi Gents just posted these elsewhere and thought should go here too... tony
  4. Hi Gents Sadly. nothing on the back of either of these. First one- I'm guess it’s not that clear in the picture but I’m thinking there is a badge tucked in between a 1908 jubilee and a red ribboned merit cross ? In real world, with an eyepiece, it’s looks like the badge has an Hungarian crown with the same overall design that I’ve seen on belt buckles... ~~~~~ and this next one looks to me like the medal has been hung on an existing ribbon bar thread already on the uniform.? is it a plain merit cross on bravery ribbon? is that likely as a first medal for a man of his rank? i recall, in a recent thread, mention that studio props (equipment/uniform) were provided sometimes for use ...... anyway - here he is... Hope you like Gents tony
  5. Hi Gents more to follow any questions or better pictures please ask.... Hope you like them tony

    hi gents tony
  7. Hi Gents thanks all for your replies... hi Alex... they certainly do count! Great find. Very nice..... Out of the 10, is that 7 or 8 you've got? Are they still in the booklet ? Hi Bayern, GreyC Of course you both know i never have noticed that! Do you think then, that the photo I missed is related to the Grave markers? They were ‘together’ all this time. Not bought from a military dealer. Bought from a postcard seller. And if you wouldn’t mind....I wonder now... Would dismounted Ulanen have been reassigned to an Infanterie regiment or retained their own identity? i would guess the latter? Thanks as always.... tony
  8. Thanks for the information... much appreciated tony
  9. Hi Gents there were four pictures of the 2 M.G.K. of the 30.b Inf reg for sale separately..,. I managed to get these three but not all . I missed out on a nice group pic. Separated in the real world now but I’m going to include a screen shot (apologies to the new owner) of it with the these. I wonder if it was taken before or after the others.... the closeness of dates indicates a difficult time... tony

    Hi Gents last 8 of these to follow. these 3 then last group of 5 to follow. The first 2 to same addressee: Jan Gregor... October 1915 December 1916 This one sender details mention ‘Isonzo’ dated May 1918 tony
  13. Hi Gents that last one is a ‘funny’ one isn’t it. not everyone in the crowd looks that happy.... and i would have asked if it’s ‘Kaiser Karl’ as well, certainly looks like. ~~~~~<< Hello1812 Overture ... is there anything at all on the reverse of this last one please? tony

    Hi Gents three more from same group... , and tony
  17. Hi J-SK the rosette is usually the Hampshire Regiment. Queens crown means 1952 onwards.... hope that helps... tony
  18. Hi Gents i thought I’d share this picture/Rppc I have. The reverse is dated 10/10/18. However there is no stamp or post mark so I guess it was written then enclosed in a letter. The annotation on the front dates the image as 14 July 1918 in Cherbourg. I would also guess it is a private photo as opposed to a commercial postcard but if that’s not the case then it may be familiar to you already and not so interesting. Despite it being 35 years since my last French lesson in school even I can have a stab at the annotation on the front.... The obvious bits say ~~~~ (something) of 14 July 1918 in Cherbourg. Italians, Americans, English, Belgian, French (something) the armies ‘metropolitans et maritime’ - land and sea? ~~~~~~ flags... I hope you like Gents.... tony

    Hi Gents Big group of Jäger, marksman award and plenty of edelweiss present but no medals yet except this one with arms crossed... im guessing perhaps the instructor with his class. Trumpeters to the fore... And he’s bearing machine gunner collar badges and a Karl Kreuz/bravery ribbon pair.... tony

    Thanks for the link Christian It makes me wonder as to the date of this... it seems the same traditions still hold strong. cheers tony
  22. Agreed! Great pictures thanks. This mans trio caught my eye amongst all the bling... Am I mistaken (often am) or is he, in fact, wearing two 1908 Jubilee medals? One on the end on a civil ribbon and the one in the middle on a military ribbon? Personally I’ve not seen that before.... tony
  23. Hi Gents I hope you will enjoy some of these. There are more to come. And please feel free to comment or add your own if you want. February 1913 May 1913 July 1904 May 1908 June 1910 August 1905 tony
