Yes, NCO acting as Lt.
Yes, Naxos has right. In one of my ribbon bar I have the same combo.BUT in my ribbon bar the swords are in gold. Here the swords are in SILVER (very rare )
#101 is a superb picture!
Leutnant Kurt Zehmisch
Interesting that this Lt appears to be wearing a visor cap that has EM/NCO kokarden. Am I right?
You are right. Never seen it before
Today I have a good discovery about officer inpost # 70. Hisname is not Krantz but Pilling .
I received this photo this morning. General Hausen with men of I.R. Nr. 182.
The next photo is from the book vol. 3 from Neal O'Connor, Aviation awards of Imperial Germany. There is a photo of Rittmeister Kloetzer. The award is the same that my ribbon bar in post # 16. Have a look
Close up of the medal bar
What are the chances of this being one of his bars?
Very important, I try to find with Reichsherr Rangliste all officers with the same combo of awards. I have probably a gem in my hand
Today I'm working on Reichsherr RL 1925. I haven't found any combo similar to my ribbon bar. It's probably not Kloetzer, but for the moment I haven't got no other name
I have received this nice card of Immelmann with his dog. Have a look
Vary nice collection. The kingdom Saxony was my collection domain before i start with aviation. Nice pieces. Now you should purchase a MStHO.

perhaps you know of this site already: http://www.archiv.sachsen.de/archive/dresden/1441.htm
Thanks Hardy for the link.
Here is a bar I have shown several times for other reasons. But it is rare to see Saxon ribbon without swords. The bar belonged to Oberst Paul Krause from IR Nr. 185. It is with that specific ribbon I could id this officer.
