  1. 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
  2. I am thinking that he is a Austrian Forestry Official.
  3. Ah! That makes much more sense. Thank you.
  4. 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
  5. Thank you. Is there any idea of when he was promoted to Oberstleutnant?
  6. 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
  7. VJK, Many thanks for the information...it is never to late. Regards, Ian
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Bayern, Thank you for the information. I will try an view the TV film.
  12. Does anyone happen to know date of birth / date of death for Oberst (Generalstabs Korps) Heribert MARCHESANI. His last war time command was the 91. Landwehrinfanterie Brigade. Also I would like to see a photo of him if there is one available to see? Regards, Ian
  13. Ribbon identification

    I am not even sure it is a medal ribbon. It looks like it is made of two separate pieces of cloth: blue on top of red. Perhaps it is a unit or divisional patch of some description.
  14. Thank you Sommerfeld, the information and photo are just what I wanted. I was hoping that the requested photo would match an Oberst that i thought might have been Artur Ritter Bogusz von Ziemblice, but alas not. Any idea who my Oberst might be? Regards, Ian Click to choose files
  15. Good evening, I know this is very much a long shot, but I am seeking information on Oberst Artur Ritter Bogusz von Ziemblice. He was the Kmdt. of FAR 102 & k.k. 13 FA Brigade in 1918. I am particularly interested in his date of birth and death if known. Career details and a photo would be an absolute bonus. Regards, Ian
