  1. Hi all, You guys are fantastic! No wonder I didn't find it when searching online Kind Regards, Matt.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Now that the auction is over, here is another nice photo of this award being worn. He is also wearing the Hohenzollern and possibly the Hamburg Hanseatic Cross. There can't be too many men with this combo, it's just a shame that his name was not on the back of the photo....
  5. Is that the Hanseatic trio just before the Hindenburg cross? If so, there was a list on this forum somewhere - it might help to identify the owner ?
  6. Hi all, The attached photo was sold on ebay recently. I believe it is the same man. Does anyone know what the award is above the Johanniter? Close up
  7. Hi All, I thought I'd share these nice photos which were sold on ebay recently. Does anyone know who the Bavarian officer is? The other fellow might be Kai Meyn….?
  8. Hi All, Thanks for your replies. I assume that Hamburg was the region where he enlisted then? I will be grateful to anyone who can verify the name or unit of the Hohenzollern recipient Kind Regards, Matt.
  9. Hello all, I am looking for the first name and any additional information on a WW1 pilot named Droth. He was with Flieger-Abteilung 33 from at least October 1917 (as a Vizefeldwebel) to at least July 1918, by which time he had been commissioned. There was a Lt dR Droth who was awarded the Hausorden von Hohenzollern in 1918 and it might be the same man. Thanks a lot, Matt.
  10. Hi Glenn, Thanks a lot. His (Erich Poser's) medals and some paper documents were sold a while ago - unfortunately the seller only showed part of his Kriegsstammrolle. It didn't show his WW1 postings and although the auction house contacted the buyer on my behalf, I never received any reply sadly....
  11. Hi Bummel, This website has an interesting picture of his 'soldbuch' and medals. You might want to ask them if they can confirm or deny whether he had any additional awards.... https://stadt-sulzbach.de/index.php/unsere-stadt/rathaus/pressenews/item/2065-gedenkstein-fuer-flieger-otto-brauneck Best of luck
  12. Hi all, Thanks for your replies. He is wearing the KUK pilot's badge on his right: http://www.austro-hungarian-army.co.uk/badges/feldpil.html
  13. Hi All, I was wondering if this officer can be identified based on his uniform and awards? It looks like the number '13' is on his shoulder boards, but what is his regiment and rank? Thanks & Regards, Matt.
