  3. The medal bar with the AEZ pair is very cool if you find the time please show the reverse of the bar
  4. Take a look at the reverse...it seems that the bar has been worn as a Frackspange , then the KDM70 would have been in first and the Centenar in last place....
  5. Originally their members were recruited only from foresters (Jäger , Förster) , you can find it in older rank lists on the first sides...only a small number of men , they were the FedEx of their time and transported important documents between higher military positions.....as far as I know it has nothing to do with the later Feldjäger or Feldgendamerie . There is one book about this from the end of 19th century but it is not cheap , you can find it in some antique book stores
  6. Saw something like this some times before when bavarian officers were for long times in prussian service or units , for example in the Schutztruppe , we had a lot of discussions in german forums about these "long service things" , this is a wide field with many possibilities and surprises....
  7. Even more amazing to see 3 of them here in one row .. very rare stuff
  8. Found him in the Ehrenrangliste.....during ww1 in some Nachrichtenstabsabteilungen in Mitau , Libau and Bukarest , finally Stab der Hochseestreitkräfte , finished as Fregattenkapitän a.D.
  9. Great bars the Strelitzer is a real cracker
  10. tztztz Mr.Homerjey...... not really a NCO-bar at all... but woooooooooooonderful
  11. Interesting man..... 1904 commander of Flusskanonenboot Vaterland in China (Kapitänleutnant) , 1907 1.Werftdivision Kiel , 1909 Nachrichtenoffizier of SMS PREUSSEN (Korvettenkapitän) and 1912 Adjudant of Viceadmiral von Dambrowski in Kiel Inspektion des Bildungswesens der Marine....this is the first time any awards shine up - officers long service cross (25 years) , Red eagle order 4.class and Johanniter Ehrenritter ....think he has left navy between 1912 and 1914 Edit: 1900 Oberleutnant zur See auf Schulschiff CHARLOTTE
