  1. Super photo! The man in the front row with plm, next to Jodl (?) is Walter von Unrah...
  2. Hi Andy, Unfortunately I did not win the auction L I would guess the photo was taken around 1919-1921. I have read somewhere that the award rolls for Reuss were destroyed during WW2, so identification might prove difficult. For the record, the 2 recipients O’Connor listed were Oblt Hans Berr and Lt Lothar Frhr von Hausen. It was mentioned on another site that a man named Artur Oertel (1888-1937) may have received this award, but it is not shown on his Kriegsstammrolle. Best Regards, Matt.
  3. Here's something of a rarity - a soldier wearing the retired pilot's badge and the Kriegsverdienstkreuz from Reuß. I understand that O'Connor only found two airmen who received this award, but they were both killed during the war...
  4. Great bar! Do you know who it belonged to? I saw this document for a pilot named Lt Rudolf Stark. Under the list of awards (top-right) I think it says 'Hausord v Hohenzollern' with the date 29 Oct 1918...
  5. Hi Stogieman, I was trying to identify the medals of this LW Major, when I suddenly recognised the fellow on the right! Unfortunately no names are given...
  6. Hi all, About the last photo I posted (with the Hohenzollern): can anyone confirm what awards are on his ribbon bar? Any chance of identifying this man perhaps? Thanks
  7. Ok here is another one. The Hohenzollern is nice too! Note that he doesn't have the wound badge yet...
  8. Hi all, You guys are fantastic! No wonder I didn't find it when searching online Kind Regards, Matt.
  9. Hi all, Can anyone identify the breast star that this Luftwaffe Major is wearing? I have searched online but couldn't find it... Thanks a lot, Matt.
  10. Hi Dave & Graham, Thanks for your replies and the additional photos. Unfortunately I'm not very good at reading the shoulder boards, but I have inverted the colour which might help a bit? Looks like I got the other award completely wrong! Here is another photo
