    Hungarian Military Documents

    After reviewing the documents again I think your response is spot on.

    Hungarian Military Documents

    I think you will find that 'alezredes' is actually Oberstleutnant (Lieutenant Colonel). ezredes is Oberst/Colonel. Her last served in the 23 Honvéd Infantry Regiment. Medal No1. Order of the Iron Crown 3rd Class with 'kreigs' decoration and swords Medal No 2. Bronze Signum Laudis Medal No. 3 Large Silver Bravery Medal No. 4 Small silver Bravery Medals No 5 through 10 are post 1918 medals.
  3. I have an Ignácz Stancer promoted to Oberst (in the k.u. Honvéd) on 1 Nov 1917. If this is your Stancer then he was awarded the following: FJO-OK(KDS), EKO-R3(KDS), MVK3 (KDS), BMVM, KTK, MJM98, MJK08, MK13.

    I have no idea, but your suggestion has very real merit.

    Hi Tony, Similar, but different. The regular Heer/Landwehr/Honvéd qualification badges were about 3.4 to 3.5 cm in size, and bronze in colour. That makes then about 1-5cm smaller than the two I posted earlier. Regards, Ian

    Tony, The regular Heer/Landwehr/Honvéd qualification badges were about 3.4 to 3.5 cm in size. The photo of the Bosnian musicians is pretty cool.

    Hi Tony, I have no idea where they were worn, but I suspect maybe on a breast pocket. They are of a large size so I guess that would rule out either on a cross strap or a hat . Regards, Ian
  8. Post No. 13. I don't see any thing wrong with. Honest piece (rusty and in need of some TLC).
  9. Tony, It certainly looks like he is wearing teo Jubilee crosses. I have not seen that before. Hopefully some one will be able to shed some light on this mystery. Cheers, Ian
  10. Looking at the photo I think he has been awarded the either a silver and gold Verdienstkreuz or two silver/gold Verdienstkreuz. It also appears as if the second Verdientskreuz may have a crown. Last medal is definitely a 1908 Jubileekreuz. My guess is he was a reservist who was recalled to serve during the war and therefore he has no long service medal, 1913 mobilisation cross or other indications of 'long' service.
  11. G'day Glenn, Hmm! Feel like a goose right now. No idea how I missed him (page 30). I was more focused on the index, but just couldn't pick him out. I will now revisit the ehren rangliste. Many thanks for the additional information on his career. Regards, Ian
  12. I am looking for any career details on GM Freiherr von Buddenbrock. GM von Buddebrock is listed in the 1914 Rangliste(page 50) as being in the 1 Garde Division as the Komm. I Garde Feldartillerie Brigade , but he is not listed (that I could see) in the 1918 Ehrenliste. Any career details most gratefully received. Thanks, ian.
  13. Attached is an enlarged copy of a signature adorning a picture post card I have of a Generalmajor. Can anyone decipher the name or at least the first letter for me please. Thanks in advance, Ian
