  1. OK, this confuses me.......

    Starting at only £480 ... Sad to to hear about Michael Baldwin, his book Field Grey has a prominent place on my bookshelf.
  2. I'm looking for a Leutnant Linsenbach or something similar. At 15.9.18 he was in the Quievy-Élincourt-Cambrai area. I think he led a minenwerfer kompanie and is most likely linked somehow with the 21.Reserve-Division.
  3. I can use some major help with these ones. This index for photographs are from 7.7.18 to 20.11.18. From the 21. Reserve-Division and most likely the 41. Reserve-Infanterie-Brigade. Some names I identified already. Cantin (on first page), Croisilles, Quentin, Quievy, Valenciennes, La Bourse Brussel.
  4. I'm almost done scanning the whole lot. I think Ill post the whole document soon. I tried to puzzle it out myself but I guess native speakers will figure it out more quickly.
  5. Thanks Andy. Does not makes sense thus far. But it's a small piece of the big puzzle so who knows.
  6. I'm looking for a Hauptman Kienast from above mentioned unit. However I do not know such unit. Photo is possible taken near Bullecourt at 31.7.18. Some potential candidates: (sächs.) Minenwerfer-Kompanie Nr. 253 leichte Minenwerfer-Abteilung 253 and 253b leichte Minenwerfer-Züge 253
  7. True for photo's. I was more pointing out to the cards posted in this topic. The amount of fakes on eBay is just staggering, one of the reasons I'm not buying printed photo's anymore.
  8. Yes but then you still need to age it. All that trouble won't justify 20 or 30 euro, unless they don't want to make a profit
  9. Der Stab 96. R.J.Br. im Granattrichter 29.5.18. The same officers of the first photo in this thread are also on this photo. So we have a Leutnant of RIR 221 who served the 96. RJB staff from at least 15.5.18. to 16.8.18, who was awarded an Hessian Kriegerehrenzeichen. Someone should be able to identify him right?
  10. I found it on the axis forum: https://forum.axishistory.com//viewtopic.php?t=193741 Doesn't mention sources tho. On a side note. The 2 von Gottbergs mentioned in that thread are brothers.
  11. Hi Andy, what is your source of that list? I've been looking into him a bit and I came across the following. 1.8.1914 - 1.10.1914 Kdr III./ IR 55 21.9.1914 - 9.11.1914 Fhr IR 16 9.11.(1.10.)1914 - 5.4.1915 Kdr IR 55 27.5.1915 - 7.1.1917 Kdr IR 98 8.2.1917 - 2.8.1917 Kdr RIR 15 2.8.1917 - 1918 Kdt von Norderney 22.6.1918 - 17.8.1918g. Kdr 96. RIB It's pretty close but the dates differ.
  12. Thanks for the info. Not familiar with WW1 medals, see for yourself
  13. Latest scan from my collection. Staff of the 96. R.J.Br. taken on 15.5.18. If anybody has additional info please feel free to write it down.
