    Fußartillerie-Battery 1000

    Hello! As I wrote you personally, I only know the battery used to be in 5th army in 1918. I don´t have any infos about 1916/17. The gun must be a 238mm, L/40 By the way, welcome to the forum! Here are two examples of that gun (unit unknown), but the first photo could fit to Arras/Douai.
  3. Hello Chris! Divisional SB didn´t have leather-patches. Only official SBs had those patches.
  4. Hello! Here is a nice photo of a Sturmbataillon with an arm-patch (crosses hand-grenades) Any idea which Sturmbataillon this could be?

    Question on french uniform

    Hello! I recieved this photograph. I know the arm-sign is TSF (Téléphonie sans fils = wireless telegraphy) Which unit could it be? Engeneer or cavalry? The collar patch is black or dark-blue with brighter laces and N°18. What about the chevron? I haven´t seen chevron ranks like this until 1918. The frontline-presence-chevron were worn on the left arm. When could the photo had been taken? Thanks a lot!

    Question on french uniform

    Hello! You wrote, the photo could have been taken around the 30s. What about 18e régiment de transmission (formed in 1923, avant 18e régiment du génie)? https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/18e_régiment_de_transmissions

    Question on french uniform

    Those collar patches seem to be really difficulty... Did cavalry had those TSR formations?

    Question on french uniform

    Hello friends! Bayern: I´d say Engeneers. Black patch with red braids. Trooper. A friend of mine told me, the symbol and the chevrons could have been scratched into the negative.

    Unknown badge

    Hello! Does anyone knows, what this badge is? The diametre is 3,4cm Because of the letter K I assume, it´s a german or an austrian one. You know the most words spoken as a K, in english and french are spelled with a C. A J in Germany often means I. So Imo should be Immobile. Württemberg had an Immobile Kraftwagen-Abteilung Nr.1 So my idea is: Immobile Kraftwagen-Abteilung HR 1918 (Immobile motor-lorry detachment) But what the hell does HR mean??? Maybe something with Honvéd, if it´s an austrian one??? Maybe it´s not military? Thanks a lot in advance!
  13. Hello! The photo probably was taken in 1919/20. It´s written with "Polizei Lübeck".

    Question on french uniform

    Hello Trooper! I really don´t know... If it is drawn, it´s not on my photo. Maybe upon the negative??? I also thought the chevron and/or the symbol is drawn. I know there are several unofficial TSF signs like this one in the photo below photo, taken from this book: https://www.militaria.at/Book.aspx?book=998400&Language=en
  15. WOW! THAT looks great, Chris! Chapeau!
  16. Right. Carl Boedicker (*5.6.1808 ; +14.4.1874) used to be regiment´s commander from 21.11.1857-16.7.1865

    Polizei Lübeck

    Hello! Unfortunately not. The reverse is blank, but "Polizei Lübeck"
  18. Hello! I recieved this Wehrmacht-Photo. Unfortunately no names. N°2 probably Reinhard Gehlen (later "Fremde Heere Ost") N° 4 probably Horst Wendland (later General in the Bundeswehr - suicide in 1968) Could one determine the unit or the names of some of the others? Thanks a lot!
  19. I think it will be the same... Zhekov, Jakow, Shekow. All the same pronounciation (it depends on the language...)
  20. I thought Zhekov was commander of the bulgarian forces... https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Schekow
  21. Great pieces, Chris!!! Congrats!
  22. Hello! N°2 must be Nikola Zhekov: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Zhekov
  23. Like I said before, in the war several cavalry regiments were raised with those high numbers; some of them became Kavallerie-Schützen-Regimenter. KSR 93 was dissolved in 1918. In the ranklist of honour is a Lt. Werther named in württ. Dragoner-Rgt.25. He ended the war as Rittmeister a.D. Lt. 16.6.10 Olt. 18.12.15 In the list of 1919 he still was Olt. I don´t know if he is it...
  24. Chapeau! A really graet photo!!!!! Here is his entry of the 70/71 EK I owners:
