  1. Detailed informations from 1926 "Ehrentafel und Stammliste des Garde-Reiter-Regiments" Gruß Stefan Same source
  2. One more card. The whole series consists of 6 cards. Extract from Schumacher/Dorsch: A. Paul Weber: Leben und Werk "...Weitere Kontakte folgten, so zum Verlag Fritz Würtz in Berlin-Steglitz, der ein Aquarell Webers (Blick auf Wilna) als Postkarte herausbrachte, und zum Verlag der Wanderschriften-Zentrale, Hellerau bei Dresden, der dem Gedankengut der Jugendbewegung nahe stand. Hier erschienen 1917 die drei sechsteiligen Postkartenserien (Anm. 056) „Deutsches Kriegsziel“, „Heil Stosstrupp“ und „Die deutsche Frau in der Heimarmee“ see http://www.weber-museum.de/bio_dor_schu/bio_dorsch_schu_01.html Gruß Stefan
  3. Jungnickel was in GR 101 the whole war. The action for his HoH-Awarding happened during the Gr0ße Schlacht in Frankreich at the end of march 1918. At that time he was a battallion cdr. in above regiment. PS: sent you a message. Gruß Stefan
  4. Here is a period newspaper article (in german only, I´m sorry) from 1914 about Veit and his unique medal combo in the German Army. It tells among other things that he received the the golden and silver turkish livesaving medal for rescuing drowning people two times in series! Gruß Stefan
  5. Hi. bought this photo of a saxon Hauptmann at the weekend. Clearly visible his shoulderboards with "178" or "179". Dedication reads: "z. Erinnerung an Wurzen August 1917" But his signature is still a misery for me. First I thougt Köhnecke but can´t find nobody on Ranklists or Roth. What are youre clues? Gruß Stefan
  6. He died 1903. Attached his entry from Verlohren This picture of him was sold a couple of years ago on ebay. Gruß Stefan
  7. Just digitalized: 1867 http://digital.slub-dresden.de/werkansicht/dlf/146178/1/
  8. Wiki isn´t correct. Attached a Scan of the saxon ranklist 1914. IR 139 was still a part of 24th Division, 47th brigade in 1914. It only switched the brigade. IR 133 and 134 formed 89th brigade / 40th. division till 1915. Then 89th brigade (IR 133, 139, 179) was transferred in Spring 1915 to 24th. Divison when the composition of german infantry divisions was changed into only one brigade of 3 regiments per division instead of 2 brigades of 2 regiments so far. So IR 139 was transferred into that brigade then as IR 134 left the brigade and became part of 88th. brigade (IR 104, 134, 181) /40th. Division. That´s correct. Gruß Stefan
  9. Tony, the regiment was part of the 24th (2nd saxon) Division Gruß Stefan
  10. Richard Walter Kühn from IR 104. (source: hermann Historica Archiv)
  11. Got some new cards . Publisher is Cross's Library Folkestone and artist signed Robbie. Anyone know who´s hiding behind him? Gruß Stefan
  12. Please take a look at the Dresdner Salonblatt . It included a lot of photographs of high ranking officers (Saxon mainly) in relative usable quality, see attachment. Also some useful background information. Another great strike of the Dresden State-Library! Gruß Stefan
  13. Major Lukas Kirsten

    And here´s his medalbar from the Sammlung Siebentritt in 2002
  14. Major Lukas Kirsten

    Dear Mrs. Kennedy-Corwin, I have a special interest in Lucas Kirsten as he was an exeptional phenomenon into the saxon army. If it´s in your interest I would like to get in touch with you very much and exchange infomations. For example, a friend of mine have 2 photos of his funeral ceremony in December 1917 in Bousbeque. Regards Stefan
