  1. Hi Graham, I don't think he could be General Barger. The General was not promoted to Generalmajor until 24 December 1935, some two and a half years after the reintroduction of the former k.u.k. style uniform. Eduard Barger is pictured here still as a colonel in the newly reintroduced uniform whereas the General officer at the beginning of this thread is wearing the older pattern Bundesheer uniform. Regards Glenn
  2. Charles, maybe I was unclear; per regulations the 1910 tunic for Flügeladjutants should NOT have breast pockets. However, I should not imagine anyone lost any sleep about such a transgression! Regards Glenn
  3. Hi Charles, that is an M15 Bluse. The field grey Waffenrock for Flügeladjutanten did not necessarily have breast pockets; in fact as per regulations did not have them. Regards Glenn
  4. Charles, Freiherr von Leonrod was listed as an "Offizier à la suite der Armee" with the uniform of a Flügel-Adjutant. He was a senior official at the court of the Bavarian King. His final rank was that of an Oberst (11.10.14). He was appointed as a Flügeladjutant to King Ludwig on 23 December 1912, having previously been the then Prince Ludwig's personal adjutant. He retired from active service on 12 June 1913 and was appointed à la suite der Armee with his previous uniform. Regards Glenn
  5. Charles, Most likely. Graf Castell-Castell was promoted to Generalmajor on 28 May 1918, Patent of 28.5.18 (4) but was not elevated to an appointment as General à la suite or General-Adjutant and retired still in the appointment of a Flügel-Adjutant with Major-General's rank on 28 December 1918. I am not aware of any other individuals in that rank serving as Flügeladjutanten at this period. Regards Glenn
  6. Matty, it is a pre-war photograph of Konrad Graf Finck von Finckenstein, commanding the Garde-Jäger-Bataillon. The award above the Johanniter is the 1906 Kaiser's Erinnerungszeichen zur silbernen Hochzeit (silver wedding jubilee badge). Regards Glenn
  7. Hi Laurentius, Oberst a.D. Karl v. Winterberger, formerly of IR 94, IR 59 and lastly the Landwehrbezirkskommandeur in Weilburg. Awarded the GSF2 in 1888. Regards Glenn
  8. Hi Matty, the Bavarian is LAPO Oberstleutnant Alfred Wanka. And yes, that is Major Kay/Kai Meyn. Regards Glenn
  9. Hi Laurentius, this from the Offizier-Stammliste of Grenadier-Regiment Nr. 5. He was actually born in 1836. The date of death shown here is wrong; he died on 24 March 1907. He was awarded the RAO4X for Trautenau during the Austro-Prussian War. Regards Glenn
  10. Chris, well officially, Offizier-Aspiranten should not wear an officers’ helmet. They usually held the rank of Vizefeldwebel /Vizewachmeister d.R. As such they would usually wear an issue helmet with the officer pattern cockade. Of course, during wartime, I am sure that some guys would have “upgraded” their helmets contrary to regulations. Regards Glenn
  11. I should think Oberst Ernst Streit. Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 83 in 1914 and a former officer in the Ostasiatisches Detachement. Awarded the CDIII1 around 1910. Listed as an Oberstleutnant (E) in 1939 with a Patent of 4.11.20. Regards Glenn
  12. Claudio, he does not appear in the officer/official lists of either the k.u.k. Army or k.k. Kandwehr. I am assuming he is a Landsturm military official. That does seem to be a rank "Rosette" on the collar as worn by officials as opposed to a star worn by officers. Regards Glenn
  13. Does he have a name? Regards Glenn
  14. A subject now firmly on my radar! Here is a photograph I took at the tomb of Kaiser Wilhelm I in Charlottenburg in 2013. As can be seen, the old Emperor never "upgraded" himself from Generaloberst der Infanterie (mit dem Range eines General-Feldmarschalls). Regards Glenn
