  1. Alfred Herzog von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha was the Regiment-Inhaber of Infantry Regiment 84 from 1894 until 1900. So my mystery Oberst was probably serving in IR 84 in 1899 when the medal was issued.
  2. Farkas, Many thanks for the reply. I am more convinced than ever that it is the said medal. Regards, Ian
  3. Could the medal mystery be the: Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an dies Silberne Hoch-Zeit des Herzogs Alfred 1909'?
  4. Hi, Can any tell me what the last medal this Oberst is wearing please. I thought it might have been the 1809-1909 Tiroler Jubilee Veterans Medal, but I pretty certain that is not that one. Thanks, Ian
  5. Austrian uniforms

    My comments on what the photos indicate to me. Post 84 is a Feldwebel from a common army Hungarian Infantry Regiment. The stripes on his left sleeve indicate length of service, in this case a minimum of 9 years service. Post 92 is a Beamter (official) of the Gendarmerie (Oberleutnant equivalent). Regards, Ian
  6. I am thinking that he is a Austrian Forestry Official.
  7. Ah! That makes much more sense. Thank you.
  8. M Thanks for filling in the blanks for me. A little confused with his service in June/July 1917. He was invalided out due to war injuries? He then served in a Korpskommando in or near a war zone as a Oberstluetnant a.D. or d.R.? Regards, Ian
  9. Thank you. Is there any idea of when he was promoted to Oberstleutnant?
  10. I am looking for information on Oberstleutnant Karl Budiner. He was serving with Feldjagerbatalion 6 in 1916, 1917 and possibly 1918. He is listed in the 1917 Rangliste as a Major in FJB 6, but there is no mention of him in the 1918 Rangliste. I assume he died sometime between being promoted to Oberstleutnant in late 1917 or early 1918 but before the 1918 Rangliste was complied. Regards, Ian
  11. VJK, Many thanks for the information...it is never to late. Regards, Ian
  12. I am hoping that members of this forum will be able to assist me with these to signatures. The first is for an Oberst and the second for a Hauptmann. Regards, Ian
  13. I would be most grateful if some learned member of this forum could help me ID this Generalmajor please. On the reverse of the photo is a green stamp – verboten 1943 and the Vienna photographers stamp (Album Kobo) . many thanks for looking, Ian
  14. Your Great Grandfather is wearing the rank insignia of a Zugsführer (Section leader). His medals are as follows; Small silvery bravery with a bar indicating a 2nd award Small bronze bravery with a bar indicating a 2nd award Karl Truppen Kreuz (KTK) 1912-1913 Mobilization cross NCO’s Long service award (can’t tell which one) He is probably infantry, but I can’t tell you the Regiment. Regards, Ian
