  1. The Lord of the rings... Great collection, mate!
  2. Hello! Thanks for the correction. I only looked for a Württemberg service. Tha´s the problem with the ranklists... There ain´t no first names
  3. Hello Claudio! In the ranklist of honour I´ve found a Major a.D. Graf v. Normann-Ehrenfels from Gren.Rgt.119. His last duty in the war was in Bekleidungsamt XIII.AK (Clothng office XIII.Army Corps) He became reactivated by the outbreak of war. Last peace-time entry in ranklist 1913 as Hauptmann in Gren.Rgt.119 (2nd company). Medal: Ritterkreuz 1.class of "Hausorden der Wachsamkeit oder vom weißen Falken" Hauptmann: 20.4.10 But I don´ t know if he is it, because I couldn´t find any infos about the medals you mentioned...
  4. Hello! Great photo! I agree with Dave´s "translation". Here is a bad-quality-photo from my collection. Note the Sturmabteilung cap-bands! The writer wears my last-name... Feldpost 837 belonged to the 1st Naval Division. I found a Paul Bauer (Marine-Grenadier) in the casualty lists, but I don´t know, if it could be him... http://des.genealogy.net/search/show/2368645 The "Sturmabteilung des Marinekorps" was set-up in mid-1918 by "Generalkommando des Marinekorps Brügge". So I´m alittle bit puzzled, that your photo is dated summer/autumn 1917! Probably in that time the unit was stil not budgetary. Actions 1918: Coastal protection and battles in Flanders.
  5. I couldn´t find a connection. According to ,my sources the regiment hadn´t been in action in any mountains. Maybe the Leutnant serced with a mountain unit and came later to the 7th. and kept his hat...
  6. Nice photo, Chris! Note the square visor, worn by bavarian field-artillery!
  7. Hello! That is a brilliant photo! Superb!!!!! The grenade on the Bergmütze proofs that the shoulder board is artillery. The first photo (from Chris) probably shows a red shoulder strap, worn with the Bluse 15.
  8. Hello! I agree! Bav. 7th FAR
  9. Hello! Great photo! During the 2nd WW he was called "Bloody Ferdinand" (Blutiger Ferdinand) In WW1 he was heavy wounded twice http://des.genealogy.net/search/show/8255121 http://des.genealogy.net/search/show/4231305
  10. I agree, Andy! Unfortunately for us (furtunately for him...) no match in the casualty list. So you could visit ancestry...
  11. Spindler? Maybe it´s a "Sp" and the last one a "r" you can checvk all Vinzenz in list "Bayern" with unit 1
  12. I´m sorry. I´m not not a specialist in reading old scripts... Maybe "Spindler"?
  13. Hello Chris! no match in the casualty lists...
