I have an extensive set of the Machine Gunner sharpshooter magazines from 1917-18.... most have the design of the skeleton reching out from the machine gun..... some have EK1 and higher awards listed... in this one Karl Zur Lage....

Here is his award.... for the German offensives in early 1918... from the awards listed, it is one of the very few to go to a MGSSA Company commander...

There are very few Hohenzollern listed to MGSSA officers, the other 4-5 I have seen are all to Hauptmann... Of course there are other LTs, but pretty scarce....

Chris,

I have a WWII Wehrpaß to a Leutnant d.R. Nikolaus Spanier who served with Maschinengewehr-Scharfschützen-Abteilung 69 from March 17 to Feb. 18 and was awarded the EK I on the 5th of July 1917. Could you maybe check, if he is mentioned in the magazine?

(I will post his Wehrpaß on the next weekend.)
