  1. I think he maybe rather problematical to identify. His epaulette insignia cannot readily be ascertained plus the fact he is retired (probably for many years) as evidenced by the “außer Dienst” bridles on his epaulettes. He will not therefore be listed in any army list at the time of this photograph. Regards Glenn
  2. Hi Christophe, I agree! I misread the Militär-Verordnungsblatt. His initial award was just with swords. Regards Glenn
  3. Chris, Christophe, I had already considered Herr Simon as a likely candidate. However, there is just one small problem: He was awarded the BMV4X with a CROWN (22 January 1915) which is not seen here?? Regards Glenn
  4. Indeed he was. He was already an Hauptmann i.G. before the war attached to the Prussian General Staff in Berlin. His former infantry regiment was 12. Infanterie-Regiment Prinz Arnulf and not the Leib-Regiment. Incidentally, he was executed as a member of the anti-Hitler resistance following the failed assassination attempt of July 1944 (23 Jan 1945) Regards Glenn
  5. Great Photo Chris, Your Leib-Regiment officer is Otto Ritter von Hübner, commanding Landwehr-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 2. In peacetime, commander of the cadet corps in Münich with the uniform of the Leib-Regiment. The two generals are Generalleutnant Otto Ritter von Gyßling and General der Kavallerie z.D. Otto Ritter von Schmidt respectively. Regards Glenn
  6. Morning Claudio, I think this is conclusive; from an extract of a Kriegs-Rangliste of III. Bavarian corps showing Major Trautmann's awards. From top to bottom: Bavarian Jubilee Medal BMVO3 with Crown and Swords Bavarian Long service Decoration (DA) 25 years Prussian Centenary Medal Prussian EK2 Prussian EK1 Prussian Hohenzollern House Order 3 with Swords Saxon Albrechts Order Knight 1st Class with Swords Hamburg Hanseatic Cross Austro-Hungarian Military Merit Cross 3rd Class Mecklenburg-Schwerin Military Merit Cross 2nd Class Reg
  7. Difficult to be absolutely certain, but I think this chap may well be the then Major i.G. Eugen Trautmann. Regards Glenn
  8. my pleasure, a slightly different angle as published in "Die Führer des Reichsheeres 1921 und 1931" Regards Glenn
  9. Morning, Reichsheer char. Generalmajor a.D. Friedrich Hohmann, formerly commander of Artillerie-Regiment Nr. 6 and wartime ARKO 203. Regards Glenn
  10. David, the gentleman is a Warrant Officer Class One in the Coldstream Guards. The peak is fitted with the five rows of “Russia braid” of a WO1 and tailored at a steep angle to rest on the bridge of the wearer’s nose as is customary in the British Foot Guards regiments. Regards Glenn
  11. The 1904 regulations state quite simply: "as per officers of the mounted branches, with silver fittings etc". A royal decree of 15 April 1913 introduced the wear of the central coat of arms in coloured enamel. Regards Glenn
  12. Hi David, note the crown surmounting the Johanniter Order below his Crown Order Commander's cross with swords. The Ehrenritter just wore a cross without the crown. Regards GLenn
