  1. I overread that he had the red eagle 4 with swords. That makes it clear, it is the war ribbon. I guess he got it in 1866? I think it is better to not link the black-white war ribbon only with the Iron Cross in our minds, but as its own entity, cause it was there before (first with PlM?, the Ordre de la Ordre de la Générosité had a full black ribbon to my knowledge.) and only happens to be the iron cross ribbon, cause it is a war-only decoration. Was the jerusalem cross only worn as full decoration on the Überrock, cause I never saw a picture with only its ribbon being worn on it

  2. The ribbon is for the red eagle 4 with swords. Only the ribbons of the EK, another prussian war decoration or the lifesaving medal could be worn on the Überrock. Best, Daniel

  4. Some fantastic ones there! there are 3 stages or award doc periods... Initially they were going to hand out Documents like the 1870 ones after the war so there was no official order for documents ... Only in the 1st months of 1916 came the order to award preliminary documents... (although many units were already doing that).. then in the last month or so of the war the Kaiser decreed that whatever paper the soldier had at that moment, (Ausweis, Besitzzeugnis etc) would be his official one. I think by 1918 some units had realized that and were giving out the sexy stuff... like the Alpenkorps do

  5. I certainly will. Thank you for the interest. Since it is snowing here, I'll share this just-completed 1/48 scale effort calling to mind another snowy winter, in less happy circumstances! Students of history should be able to name the unit down to battalion-level, place and approximate historical date. By the way, I am working on the Western Desert diorama; the kubelwagen is coming along: Now back to the novels. The fun never stops. In parting, here is how I make ammo belts (or for that matter, cables):

  7. Here is a project I completed in December. USAAF Far East Air Force B25-C (mod.) Mitchell, Philippines. December 23rd. 1941: an emergency airstrip somewhere near Lubao, on Bataan Peninsula. Helping hold open the bridges at Calumpit near San Fernando, as Wainwright's troops flee from Manila and the pursuing Japanese Army. I haven't put together a model in 45 years. Although a little shaky now (not to mention the worsening eyesight), it's comforting to see I haven't lost all my skills. Everything is hand painted. All but the models and figurines is scratch built. These are an exer

  12. Sorry to arrive late. I think we can all agree politics has no place here... and I say that even with the politics I agree with. Last thing we need a a pre election fratricide. Lets get back to militaria.
