EK1 awarded by the kaiser

Recommended Posts

Of course, maybe he lost his EK1 in 1923 and picked up another one, Or GIs stole it in 1945 and he got another one....

Or, like the rest of an intact group this was the Cross awarded to Hautpmann Lempelius in Riga in September 1917. I tend to think it is.

I did not get the whole group, but got all the important parts :-)kai1.jpg.61e7d7be24ab62cccabc6c03b5dc8afkai2.jpg.29f50d68416192a1ebd7ea22a982bc0

Now thats a nice documented group. How often did Wilhelm hand out EK´s himself? There can´t be too much of these around, right?

Hi,

 

not too rare, they had Kaiser parades and he did masses in one go. he must have handed out tens of thousands during the war.

But it is nice to have one :-)
