Best I can tell this is a Postal Service Supervisor. Can anyone be more specific or tell me what his duties could have been?

Thanks,

Vince

Hi Vince,

it is a higher rank in the lowest Prussian/German regulations (rank group). Compared with a military rank it is a higher EM (Mannschaftsdienstgrad):

And that for 40 years!

Hello Uwe,

Thank you for this information. This is an interesting grouping I have to an "OLD Veteran" who ended up working for the Postal Service. Please let me know your thoughts about this grouping as well.

My best,

Vince

Hi Vince,

it is an interesting and impressive group for a man with a low military and civilian rank.

Military service since 1895, highest rank "Gefreiter" (private), first in the regular army, and 12 years later in the Landwehr (Gefreiter der Landwehr)

His first postal rank "Postschaffner" is comparatively > Gefreiter. His next and last rank as Oberpostschaffner is comparatively > Obergefreiter/Hauptgefreiter (Corporal).

Such a mixed lot is as interesting as that of a non-commissioned officer or of an officer.

Uwe
