  1. Very nice. Can we get a clear close-up of the badge? Although the badge is very unique, I was noticing the watch! I wonder what model it is?
  2. "I collect Air Force ribbon bars. " -YES you do!! Great collection of identified Luftwaffe bars with WWI (and earlier) service. And these are just the ones with a Saxon connection?
  3. or, the 14-15 Star to a 36th Sikh would enhance a Tsingtao collection. Like mine! ...just kidding. I'm just collecting german/axis groups who were in Tsingtao during the siege. But I am keeping an eye out for a Japanese group who fought there.
  4. Wonderful bar Claudio! But I especially like that you have the gentleman's significant career dates with battle history and award dates. I sympathize with the "Qualifikations-Bericht". I don't know what it is suppose to communicate. It almost looks like a letter...to outline his qualifications to the promotions personnel? Might have to send those pages to a devoted Sutterlin translator.
  5. TWO Saxe-Ernistine House-Orders on one bar!! Wow! And congratulations on finding the original picture. If you ever want to sell both the bar and the picture I would be glad to buy it.
  6. This is an interesting hanger for the miniatures. How is that slit used to attach the hanger to a uniform or dress coat?
  7. Do you have ANY details on him? What branch of service? Where he was born?
  8. What I think is really interesting is his first award (after the Centennial). Wichard must have been recognized as a rising star. Leutnant in 1893, Oberleutnant in 1900, makes Hauptman in 1907 and in October of that year recieves the Schamburg-Lippe House Order 3K! The Siam award comes soon after. In 1909 he picks up the Prussian Red Eagle 4K with Crown! He is being recognized by some influential people. I hope there is a photo of him.
