  1. Very informative info Brian - thank you ! I wasn't on the forum for a while … or a bit longer .. If we are talking about Freikorps Caspari , I have few pieces from one of his former officers ( I bought them from his son ! ) - they are from WW I and WW II era , nothing from his Freikorps time … I was told he was participating in this particular Freikorps . His name is Rudolf Sies and he was very interesting man - after his Second World War he was President of the organization of German porcelain makers and one of the highest managers at Huetschenreuther Manufactur .. I'm sorry it's bit off topic .. here you have his few belongings .. I also have somewhere packed his WW I officer's shoulder board. best Kornel
  2. Hello Albert and Paul would you please tell the title of the book or show a picture of it ? I'm interested as well , so I'll try to find it best regards Kornel
  3. Peter Meinlschmidt is back in Germany for good , I spoke with him few months ago . If anybody is still interested on his book I may provide his email address . I belive he still has few copies of his book for sale with regards Kornel
  4. I know it's out of the topic , I'm sorry but couldn't resist - Laphroaig , especially 10 y.o. is my favorite one !!!! my much older ex girlfriend ( many years ago ) once said about it - you'll love it or hate it , nothing between .... I can't disagree . best regards Kornel ps.
  5. Great photo Robin ! it's interesting how bright look the helmets ( from the right side ) - probably it's the effect of the direct sun light ... or some kind of light feldgrau or maybe unusual color like .. sand /clay ? with regards Kornel
  6. Hello Hardy ! Thank you very much for your reply , but at this moment ( after some info update ) have to disagree with you and try to explain why ... On the beginning I was also very skeptical and was interpreting it the very same way , but in between did some more research and ask couple more collectors . At first glance two friends basing on the late war structure told me "that's not the one" but after I found in Peter Meinlschmidt's book info about Flammenwerfer Truppen we agreed plus a collector / historian friend very knowledgeable and interested about the subject sent me the scan from the book " Das Ehrenbuch der deutschen Pioniere " which made me sure and ... very happy - soon I'll tell you why . So the 12. Kompagnie of the III GPB was not only part of flame thrower troops , they were actually "beginners" . thank you very much , thanks to all participants and interested best regards Kornel Below both scans from : 1) Peter Meinlschmidt " German WW I Identity Tags/Discs " 2) Koenigl. Pruess. Major Paul Heinrici " Das Ehrenbuch der deutschen Pioniere "
  7. I wouldn't mind to take these shoes off ... Lena Olin for example .... .... but back to Earth - can anyone tell me if 12. Kompanie of 3. Garde Pionier Bataillon , was a part of Flammenwerfer Truppen ? best regards Kornel
  8. don't even tell me Eric ... quiet few times and the worst part was when it went underpriced or at least for less then I was ready to pay .... damn it !! I never use a sniper , but if you participating in online auctions and want to live like a human ... this is a must ! best regards Kornel

  16. nice veterinary shoulders Chris - I would like even a single one . regards Kornel Chip - never doubted you're a gent . >> Oh Kornel, I really like that Hessian pair. I only have a single. << - but maybe because that's my only pair ( one of very few )

  20. My congratulations Robin - great lithography indeed ! Chris , but if I have to wait 30 years for each good / interesting single item I didn't get at first .... then I have to be alive for at least as long as Galapagos' turtle if not forever best regards Kornel
  21. Eric , that's very interesting picture ! It is related to Greater Poland Uprising of 1918–1919, or Wielkopolska Uprising of 1918–1919 (Polish: powstanie wielkopolskie 1918–19 roku; German: Großpolnischer Aufstand) or Posnanian War . this was only time ( this very early years in general - I suppose to have somewhere an info about regulations to foreign awards in Polish Army ) when non Polish badges and medals were still in use . best regards Kornel
