    Posts 19 and 20 should be Type I Klasse IV (just a single Grade exists) It's completely smooth on the edges and it is much bigger than Klasse V Cheers Freiherr
  3. No expert on uniform.... I have never seen a picture of him so would not be able to tell if the tunic would fit him. But you would think he had ordensspange and loops for some basic decorations. None for an ObstAF? Hard to believe. Cheers Elwyn
  4. Soup with pate would seem strange for today. Other than that, looks like trout mousse with tomato sauce, chicken pot pie, beef and grouse with cream sauce. I hope they were small plates. Now the wine list to go with it would be interesting Cheers Elwyn
  5. Ludwig Karl Joachim v Schwerin was ObstLt 12.09.02 E and Kmdr d Kürassier Rgt Kaiser Nikolaus I v Rußland (Brandenburgisches) Nr 6 in 1903. I am not familiar with Großfürst Alexei Alexandrovitch's coat of arms but his younger brother Großfürst Paul Alexandrovitch was à la suite KR6 10.09.72 and Chef d Rgt 19.07.88. Cheers Elwyn
  6. Bastian was later KM Admiral Max Bastian v Ahlfen was later GenMj Hans v Ahlfen v Falkenhorst was later GenObst Nikolaus v Falkenhorst Karmann was later Gen d Inf Friedrich Karmann v Uckermann was later GenLt Horst FrHr v Uckermann Mummert was later GenMj Werner Mummert Carp was later GenLt Georg Carp Rm Merz was later GenMj Georg Merz (he was rare!!!) Cheers Elwyn
  7. He was definitely not Hierl. Since his Gau insignia most clearly read Gau XVIII and he was not Hermann Wagner, I put my money on GAF August Oswald. Cheers Elwyn
  8. What Glenn was referring to and one more. Cheers Elwyn
  9. I am no expert... but would it be cheaper to do a high resolution E-book? Everyone signs up and we can figure out when it is economically feasible and legally feasible? Certainly saves on shipping cost which is such a joke with all these heavy hard cover stuff from Germany shipped to the US and we are forced to pay for that bond paper and binding which will fall apart if you flip through them enough anyway. Just like a 1870 Rangliste. Ironically, I had more than one email with Neal O'Connor (or was it telephone!) as he was sitting there taking checks for his other volumes and complaining that his Vol 1 was way too over-priced on Ebay.
