  1. Hello all, it´s Kurt von Schleinitz! You will find his biography on that website also: http://www.germancolonialuniforms.co.uk/ Best regards Karsten Ek2 = MMV2 Last order = RumSt5 -> see
  2. Hello again, thanks for your input. But I was not asking for the rule of successions. I was asking for your argument with 5 and 10 years.... But don´t forget that there were also exceptions, see attached photo (from my ex-collection)! It shows a saxon NCO (Unteroffizier) with: GSWA-medal/ MEZ2 and sFAM A proud saxon with his saxon award on the last position So never say never! Best regards Karsten
  3. Hello, could you please explain 5 and 10 years for both FA-medals. I can't follow you in that case. FA-medal in bronce was awarded to enlisted men and FA-medal in silver was awarded to NCOs You wrote: the saxon medals should always come first or second, but never be third after an medal from the colonies. Are you sure? We have seen some bars wir the craziest succession of medals/ decorations But I don't like also the shown medal bar, due to other reasons. Best regards Karsten
  4. hello all, the photo shows Bayme Mohamed Husen! A former Askari. He fought together with his father for Lettow-Vorbeck in WW1 His father was KIA and Bayme Mohamed Husen was taken POW in 1917 The photo shows him as an acteur for the movie "Die Reiter von Deutsch-Ostafrika"! Best regards
  5. Hi, it could be identifiable. We have the Stanislaus ribbon on the last position! So it could be the Stanislaus 3rd class with swords. Some german fighter's received that award for their participation on the battle of the Peitang-Forts! Not many of them fought also in German-Southwestafrica! So may be identifiable. Best regards Karsten
  6. Hi all, I would suggest a "Marine-Oberstabsingenieur" or something like that. Most of them had the combination of RAO4 and KO4 Best wishes Karsten
  7. Hi all, and here the second one. It shows a unknown saxon colonial official with a nice combination of awards: KO4Xw DSWA-Denkm. for fighters SA3bX On the right side (next to his leg) is stamped the year 1908.....So we have to search for someone who had the nice combination of KO4Xw and SA3bX and who served also in Halle/a.S. in 1908! He has to be one of the following candidates: ProvAmtAssistent Bannier Karl DSWA KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 ProvAmtInsp Engst August R. DSWA KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 Intendanturreg Kemter Georg DSWA Feldintendantur KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1907 ProvAmtAssistent Kie
  8. Hi all, after the sucessful identification of Hptm. von Schlichtegroll: I hope that´s also possible to identify the following two colonial officials. For first the prussian one. The photo shows a prussian colonial official with the following nice award-combination: KO4Xw AEZ DSWA-Denkm. for fighters Centenary-medal The photo was taken in Oels (in Silesia/ near of Breslau) Only 4 candidates are possible....Those candidates are: Kaserneninspektor Annighöfer--> received KO4Xw in 1907 Lazarettinspektor Blümel--> received KO4Xw in 1908 but retired also in 1908 Lazarettinspektor Dybilasz--&
  9. Hi Chip, thanks a lot for your confirmation...... .....and unnecessary posts don´t exist Thanks and best regards Karsten
  10. Thanks a lot again Glenn, so the photo must be taken between 1905 and March 1909. Nice Best regards Karsten
  11. Wow thanks a lot Glenn Hans von Schlichtegroll received his MVO4 on 11th March 1911 but when did he receive his RAO4? I was thinking that the china-medal is a bronze one because it´s looking so dark like the Jubiläumsmedaille.....so I was researching in the wrong way Thanks a lot for identify him. Best regards Karsten
  12. Hi all, today I received this nice and interesting photo. It shows a bavarian officer (captain) with the following awards: -Jubiläumsmedaille -SA3b -China-medal in bronze for fighters (in my opinion it looks like a bronze one) -bavarian long service cross for 24 years Unfortunately I´m not able to identify the insignia on his shoulderboard but the photo was taken in Munich.... ....so I assume that he was a member in one of the following regiments: Infanterie-Leib-Regiment 1. Infanterie-Regiment „König“ 2. Infanterie-Regiment „Kronprinz“ Right? I checked all bavarians participants of Chin
  13. Hi Andreas, thanks a lot for your fast respond. Very nice to see the "african" decorations of Albert Freiherr von Schrenck von Notzing Do you also have the certificates? Or is there anything on the backside of those awards which shows that these belong to Albert Freiherr von Schrenck von Notzing?? Best regards Karsten
  14. Hi Andreas, can I ask why? Yes I have a photo of Albert Freiherr von Schrenck von Notzing, see here: Best regards Karsten

  16. Hi Chris, here von Pappritz 2nd document.... normally I don´t collect IronCross-Documents BUT I want to reunite the estate of Pappritz....so I had to buy it. His documents for IronCross 1st and KO3 (for China).... best wishes Karsten
  17. Hi all, here is the picture without any red stripes and in better quality Best regards Karsten
  18. Hello Christian, thanks a lot for your friendly words. If you are interested for pictures with a higher quality, send me a personal message. Interesting picture but it seems that Kraehe isn´t wearing his "china-awards"?! Best wishes Karsten
  19. Hello, here we have two pics of Konrad Kraehe First picture shows him as a captain with the combatant ribbon (KO4x). The Photo was taken in 1910 The second one shows him some years later as a General der Infanterie but with all his awards . I know six years of delay but I hope the search is still of interest. Best wishes Karsten
  20. Hi Thomas, but the last one is a swedish decoration and not a russian one=) By the way... ...a nice picture. Best wishes Karsten
  21. Hello Andreas, are you sure with Sanleben or Sauleben. I would say it´s definitely Premierlieutenant Franz Kielmeyer He was member of the 120th württemb. Inf. Regt Nr. 120 till April 1893 and served from 5th April 1893 till 1st February 1898 (Killed in action) in German Eastafrica He received the KO4x and WF3aX Very nice Photo Best wishes Karsten
