5 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am wondering howmany styles of preliminary award documents for the Iron cross 2 nd CLass does exist from the XXVI Res. Korps.

I have two in my collection:

1. Dated 1914 - and the HQ was based at that time at Westroosebeke

2. Dated 1916 - the HQ was based at that time at Roeselare

I look forward to see more of these documents!

Thanks in advance

Hi,

At some stage in 1917 they stopped giving them and the divisions of the Korps took over with a similar design.

I have some more, Imust look for them...

Hi Chris

Thank you once again. Fun to see is that the cityname of Roulers (documents 1915 and previous) changed in 1916 to Roeselare. The last is the Flemish name, the previous "Roulers" is the French. This might have had something to do with the so called "Flamenpolitik" in a attempt to get the Flemish people on the German side.

I look forward to see more (if more is available).

Thanks again
