For anyone interested in the subject of German WWI Erkennungsmarke, there is a nice book on the subject by Peter Meinlschmidt. It is available with English or German text.It covers the background history, regulations, unit markings, with a large section of examples. The English title is, "German WW1 Identity Tags/Disks". Copies may still be available from the author. The last address I have for him is, Peter Meinlschmidt, Bärenacker 12, Düngenheim, Germany.

Hi,

The last address I have for him is, Peter Meinlschmidt, Bärenacker 12, Düngenheim, Germany.

Chip

He lives in Poland now (Szczecin, Stettin).

He has just published an interesting book on the German army (Kompaktübersicht über die Truppenteile der Alten Armee, 1870-1914).

For those who want to contact him, I can give his Email (in private message).

I goes on holiday tomorrow and I could answer only after January 1st.

Regards,

Stephan

Since the tag looked like it was in the ground for a long time, I checked the KIA list of RIR93.

 

There I found Grenadier Paul Bruski born on August 16, 1894 - killed in action at the Somme on September 5, 1916 (22 years of age)

Over the years I have managed to find Erkennungsmarken with neck cords in the state colors. One that has eluded me is a Saxon example. They must have existed, but I have never seen one. If someone has a Saxon piece, I would love to see it. I was also wondering if other state examples exist, especially neck cords with the Mecklenburg colors.
