  1. Hi, #1 is a Luftwaffe Beamte of the elevated career with the equivalent rank of an Oberleutnant. #2 is a Beamtenstellvertreter (im Feldwebelrang) Regards Glenn
  2. Hi, I can find nothing to suggest that Dr. Carl (Karl) Fischer of Ulm with the BVK was a later medical officer. He is not to be found as a medical officer of the Beurlaubtenstandes and disappears from the Reichs Medizinal-Kalendar after 1891. He apparently qualified in 1867. Regards Glenn
  3. Joe, sorry, that was a typo. He appears in 1930 not 1939. He is not in any of the Wehrmachtbeamte Ranglisten I have: 1938, 1939 or 1942. Regards Glenn
  4. Joe, of the three, I have found only August Freund still listed as an Oberinspektor (Beamte bei den Wirtschafts- und Rechnungsämtern) as late as 1930 (WRA Löbau). He is listed as an Inspektor at WRA Löbau in 1922 and as an Oberinspektor at WRA Leipzig in 1927). From Siekmann's Taschenkalender 1922, 1927, 1939. Regards Glenn
  5. Nicolas, Emil Mohr pictured as an Oberstabsveterinär (Major) before his 22 July 1919 brevet promotion (charakterisierung) as a Generaloberveterinär) Regards Glenn
  6. Hi, he received the swords to his already held peacetime Crown Order 2nd Class and additionally the Star of the Second Class with Swords. Basically "with swords to" Regards Glenn
  7. Hi, he was a former cadet, so his age at entry was not out of the ordinary. Regards Glenn
  8. Hello, Hans Dedo Freiherr von Milkau, born 1858 at Skassa near Großenhain. Entered the Saxon army in 1874 and was promoted to Portepee-Fägnrich in 1. Husaren-Regiment Nr. 18 on 10. April 1876.

Kavallerie-Brigade Nr. 24 24.9.10: Retired with character of Generalmajor Died 24.12.1913 Regards Glenn
  9. Geoff, as can be seen from this extract from the 19 February 1820 edition of the "Militair-Wochenblatt", awards of deceased holders of the Iron Cross were further awarded to deserving recipients. So for example as shown here, the award of the deceased Sek.-Lt. von Wischetzki went to Sek.-Lt. Weiland, that of Sek.-Lt. Promnitz to Sek.-Lt.von Below and that of Rittmeister von Kriegsheim to Major von Zieten. Regards Glenn
  10. The description of this individual has been troubling me for some time. I am at a loss to understand how a Paymaster candidate (who would hold the rank of an active NCO) would wear the shoulder boards of an official of the pay groups A8 through A10. I have been through all the editions of the Allgemeine Heeresmitteilungen which described the insignia of rank and their subsequent alterations and I can find no reference to a candidate wearing this combination of insignia. As described on page 38 of the AHM 1935 (Rw. Minister, 20.3.35 V5 IIIa), the insignia as worn by solders who were appointed as paymaster candidates (Zahlmeisteranwärter) wore a speciality badge on the lower right sleeve with the letter V. (See also Angolia/Schlicht volume 2 page 26). An order of 21 January 1942 (Ob.d.H., 21.1.42 - 25 g 14 - VA/Ag VI/V 1/Gr I (A) stated that the Zahlmeisteranwärter now wore the uniform of an official at the entry point for that career with the rank insignia of a Zahlmeister. To differentiate the candidate between those officials already holding the rank of either a substantive or non-substantive Zahlmeister, the candidate wore 1 cm wide lace strip across the base of the shoulder board in green. Is this chap then perhaps an official with the equivalence of senior NCO rank who has just "upgraded" his collar patches as a personal preference? If such an order as alluded to in the thread: "One is a senior NCO / Paymaster candidate. When he finished his probationary candidacy he'll upgrade the boards. Note, also that senior NCO's who were officer candidates were authorized to wear Officers type collar tabs and chin cords on their visor caps.", exists, I would certainly be most grateful for details. Regards Glenn
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
