  1. That doesn't resemble his wartime signature. See here... Tippelskirch
  2. Just out of curiosity, who was the second one named as (supposing Fisher was the other)?
  3. Vice-Admiral Frederic W. Fisher was Admiral Superintendent of Malta Dockyard from 16th January 1907 to 26th February 1910 so would most probably be one of those mentioned although he held the rank of Rear Admiral until 1909.
  4. This is just a question to satisfy my curiosity. Maybe I am looking in the wrong places and being a TR paperwork collector that is entirely possible but do WW-1 Soldbücher or Militärpaße exist in collections or come on the market for high ranking officers? I am not looking to buy any but in the past few years I have seen tons of TR related General rank related equivalents but not one for a WW-1 General/Admiral ranked officer. Were they even issued such a thing (I would imagine so as they obviously didn't start off as a General) or did they hand it in when they reached a certain rank and get issued something else? Same goes for major Naval units - do any ever appear for sailors who served on the heavy units at battles such as Jutland, Dogger Bank, the coastal raids etc?
  5. I've finally found one - currently listed for sale (475 Euros) is the Soldbuch of Generalleutnant Richard Freiherr von Süßkind who commanded 2. Garde-Reserve-Division at the Battle of the Marne.

  10. Can anyone identify this signature dated for February 1945 please? It is for an Oberst who holds the title of Kommandant des Tiergartensblocks which came under OKH Waffenamt.
  11. Please post your unknown Second World War Heer/Waffen-SS/Polizei signatures here.
  12. Thanks for another great addition to the Signature Database. Always good to see your contributions.

      Kevin - the signature database, along with citation databases are for me amongst the highlights on this forum. Until recently I thought, the whole forum had possibly passed its sell by date - so little activity, I didn't bother posting any more, however recently, it seems to have got its second wind, I intend to be adding to the index. Regards

      I think a lot of forums have down periods and some have stronger sections than others, but thanks to yourself and others the signature database is a real credit. Aside from some of the pinned threads your Sachsen-Coburg signature is currently the most viewed thread in the database, some 120 views more than the second most viewed signature.

      Keep up the great work.

       Best Regards

      Oh, Kevin that's nice to know - completely forgot who he was, have to re-read my own post. Cheers Alec

  13. With regards to my last post I think I have got it - Helmut Raithel.
  14. Would anyone be able to identify this pre-war Gebirgsjäger-Rgt 100 related signature please? I can't seem to match up the signature to any name in the 1937 & 1938 Stellenbesetzung - I did originally think it could be Reicheneder but then talked myself out of it and began to think the first letter could be a K. Holding the rank of Hauptmann in 1937 could mean he was a senior officer at some point in WW-2 if he made it that far.
