  1. Hello, I have a doc of a nurse who received the Hindenburg-cross with swords! She also get the red cross medal 2nd and 3rd class (WW1). She served in a german colony. Unfortunately it is unknown in which german colony. Best wishes leutwein
  2. Unfortunately there is no entry in which colony she served. But the docs were issue by the "Kommando der Schutztruppen im Reichsministerium". There are two docs for the red cross medals (2nd and 3rd class) and for the FEK. But I?m thinking that she served in German-Eastafrica or may be in Cameroon. Best wishes Leutwein
  3. Hello, I have some docs of a nurse who served in the colonies! She got later (1934) the "Ehrenkreuz f?r Frontk?mpfer". How is that possible??? Best wishes Leutwein
  4. Nice and rare picture Medalnet. Congratulations. But those 3 black soldiers are members of the policetroop of Togo and the picture was taken around 1914. The left policeman is a "Unteroffizier" The right policeman is a "Gefreiter" The decorated policeman could be a "Vize-Feldwebel" or a "Feldwebel". unfortunately we can not identify the insignias. A lovely picture. All the best Leutwein
  5. Hello Chris Boonzaier, some more news. Heinrich Teske left Hamburg on the 30th March 1904. Probably Heinrich Teske reached Swakopmund with the steamer "Entre Rios"! "Hauptmann" Stahl was the "commander" of that steamer (the steamer transported a battery (8 officers and 125 NCO?s and privates) and 650 horses) and he was later in Southwest the commander of the 5th battery. On the 21st April 1904 the steamer "Entre Rios" reached Swakopmund. The 5th battery had to finish their instruction until June in Otjosasu. After the instruction some members took part on patrols under the command of Oberleu
  6. Hello Chris, unfortunately I couldn?t find any wounded Person with the name Heinrich Teske. Perhaps he was too old for doing his service in the WW1! Perhaps he was a settler or an old veteran (Feldwebel) during the Herero-War and finally to old for the WW1. All the best Leutwein

  9. Hello Chris Boonzaier, in the name list of recipients of the Iron Cross 2nd class were the earliest awarded on the 01.12.1914 Some of them who get the Iron Cross 2nd class on this day were Bezirksamtmann Dr.vet Wilhelm von Vietsch or Stabsarzt Dr. med. Felix Meyer. A lot of Southwest-veterans get their award on the 28.04.1918. On the name list of recipients of the Iron Cross 2nd class Oblt. von Hadeln get his award on the 28.04.1918 too.
