  1. Hi Gents, this piece is real or a fake/fantasy one? https://www.ebay.ie/itm/RARE-1921-Romainian-Air-Force-Dagger-museum-piece-Romania-Air-Force-/121958577314 Thanks in advance!
  2. Dear Gentlemens! I would be happy for any informations about these Totenkopfs. First of all: originals or not?
  3. Dr. Heinrich Taeger (1881 Stettin-?) geologist. I guess he was a Reserve Officer of the German Army In the WWI. After the war he settled in Hungary. I'm looking for informations about his military career (rank, unit, medals).
  4. On his pocket and even on his cap this kappenabzeichen:
  5. Yes, actually for the widows and the orphans. The price was 3 crown.
  6. It had not worn, you had to nail it to your door. See the position on the original flyer:
  7. Anton Esquiere Hussey of Westown ( Text from Carl Fischer Von Wellenborn: Graf Civalart-Uhlanen in den Jahren 1848 und 1849. Wien, 1897.)
  8. 1.: Commemorative medal for the Liberation of Transylvania 1940 3.: The Horty-era SIgnum Laudis. On this ribbon awarded for officers but not for war services. 11.: National Defense Cross
  9. It is not a kappenabzeichen. It is a so-called "War Door-nail" (Hadi Ajtószeg in Hungarian). It vended by the War Relief Comission.
  10. The 10th medal isn't the German Comemmorative Medal. It is 2nd class of the Service Cross for military officials. The crosses itself were the same, but the ribbons were different for officers, doctors/judges etc. and the military officials. The HK abbrevation means Honvédségi Közlöny - the Army Gazette. It is a reference for the award. The Cross itself the lower left on the picture (otherwise it is a rare medal). Kásás Árpád wounded on 1916.09.20 on his neck. He spent 4 months on sick leave. BTW the Hindenburg Cross awarded for German citizens only.
  11. The last one is definietly not a kappenabzeichen. It is a so-called "War Door-nail" (Hadi Ajtószeg in Hungarian). It vended by the War Relief Comission. Once I saw it in original position in a local parish, nailed to the door post (and covered by 100 years paint layers). The second pin is something Bavarian. See the so-called Raupenhelm on the top, and the flags with the typical Bavarian lozenge pattern.
  12. One more thing: this book mentioned him some times https://books.google.hu/books?hl=hu&id=yqEiAQAAIAAJ&dq=editions%3AISBN320578149X&focus=searchwithinvolume&q=budiner
  13. I guess the "natural attrition" is more likely. The problem is the newspapers are only secondary sources, some news was "slipped" in the time. He served in a Korpskommando when he was in the Armeestand, in the hinterland. Most likely his commander suggested him for the MVK 3 when he was in the frontline, but the administration delayed.
  14.
