  1. Hi ! I need more infos about Oberst (Colonel) in 1944 - Robert Thelen (* 23.3.1884 in Nürnberg) Thelen served in the Reichsluftfahrtministerium in Berlin between 1935-1944 as a constructor. 1944: retired - later died in GDR. Would be good, to see a photo of him in uniform. Which decorations did he earn between 1935 - 44 ? I would bet in WW2: KVK, Wehrmacht LSM/LSC and may be flower medal(s.) Thanks for help!
  2. @ Dave/Daniel : What about a combination with -IC non combatant -prussian war aid cross -Anhalt Friedrichscross for combatants -Hamburg Hanseatic cross -Ehrenkreuz für Kriegsteilnehmer - LSM XII Do you have possible candidates ? I would bet, some kind of MIlitärbeamter in a lower rank.
  3. Hello ! Recently i got some new photos The shown pic was written in France in 1918. Now, i would have some questions: -Which rank? I think NCO -Is he an infanterist, or Jäger ? One the right collar i can see an "J". His name is Emil. He`s wearing a 2 place ribbon bar. I think IC & Baden MKFV (Militär Karl Friedrich) Thanks for help.
  4. I ve had a few possible candidates for that bar. I think it is very hard to find that o n e guy for 100 % . I.m.o. it is a late unnamed Godet bar and made in the late 1930s or early 1940s. I think, in that time he was Stabszahlmeister or Oberstabszahlmeister. (Intendant) and he finished his service than.
  5. Hi ! I am looking for more infos about Stabsarzt Dr. Fischer (later Oberstabsarzt) in Ulm (kingdom of Wuerttemberg) I know that he was decorated with -Kriegsdenkmünze 1870/71 (i do not know "combatant" or non combatant") - Bayerisches Verdienstkreuz für 1870/71 Are there more infos about him - especially i would like to know if he was still alive in around 1914/18 and if he got more decorations (for example Friedrichsorden knight) Thank you very much.
  6. Hi, i saw it at Zeige. I don`t want to say, that the medal could be fake - i did not like the finish but may be i am wrong with it. The ribbon bar was also sold at Zeige with some others.
  7. I know where the bar came from. It was a longer time on his page. I did not buy it, because i wasn`t sure about the finish of the HSVM. My stomach says: Zahlmeister guy (paymaster) I did a research on that bar - for 95 % - i would say it was "Mesecke" - Art. Dep. Insp. Berlin - born 1874 (as i still can ID my handwritten notes...) The problem is, that also Siekmann doesn`t show all "lower" decorations as many other sources.
  8. Thanks to all. - Wow Dave - Mr. Data - that´s great. Thank you. - so KIA in 1916. I.m.o. the MVO4X is a piece of around 1916 - it would be great, if Andreas could have a look on it.
  9. Hi, Danke - thank you to all. #1 - is it a guy of IR 15 - an infanterist? #2 - no, unfortunately no date, no name, no unit. I think it´s a photo taken at "home".
  10. Thank you very much. Did you ever see a bar with it? I have sources between 1914/18 - they only show a handfull recipients.
  11. I have never seen such a piece hanging on a bar Ritterkreuz mit Schwertern auch als besondere Auszeichnungen mit goldenen Löwen, seit 1864 auch mit Krone (knight`s cross w. swords & golden lion) I know that for example Major Karl Hieronymus Kdr. of FAR 51 earned his "lions" on 14.6.1917 Wiki says: 80 recipients - what are the sources about it - Nimmergut?
  12. HI - here one of my collection. I bought it especially because of his interesting "vita". Bracher earned his GMVM early in 1915 as Lt. in IR 121 - later he got the MVO. He was wounded several times. The pic shows him as 1st Lt. and with silvered wound badge - so it must have been taken in 1918. In WW2 he was officer of 260 ID - my uncle Willy fought with them in russia. He was POW in a russian camp till 1954 and high decorated. Nice, that his bar is still existing. https://wordpress.260id.de/?page_id=161 zähringer 46.tif
  13. Hi to all ! Here some of my new ones. I would have some questions about the pics: - The shown Lt. has the number 15 on his shoulderboard - does it mean, he served in the 15 IR? He wears a Pickelhaube - not a M 16 or later steel helmet. When i look at the MVO 4th class with X i think (because of the swords) it is a piece of 1916 or later - the combination with Lippe is uncommon - sothe earliest date for this pic would be that time. The pic was made by Atelier Kegel (i found a Kegel Hoffotograph with shop in Wuppertal (prussia) and Kassel (hessia)). Can anybody confirm, that the shown uniform is bavarian? #2 : Seems like a military official in a staff officier´s rank. (because of his shoulderboards?????) Unfortunately no name and no date as on pic #1. Can anybody confirm, that this guy has an official`s rank - if yes, that combination -for me - is interesting (with twm & IC 1st class) Thanks again! zähringer 45.tif zähringer 48.tif
  14. Yes, you can find them on pics around ~ 1900 or earlier - but sometimes also on pics of WW1 times. A part of Württemberg did belong to Austria in former times - so may be that`s a reason for it.
  15. Hi in 707, 708, 709 and some other numbers you can find some curiosities as trifold ribbons, rare combinations and other nice stuff - also of prussian officers and later high decorated WW2 personnel. I have the most of that pics in my Bestand. I have two pics with kuk war merit cross ribbon (and laurel wreath)
  16. The shown piece is called "Weimarer Fertigung". There are silvered & golden medals out there. Some are thicker and some have nearly the weight of "real ones". I have a few of them.
  17. Yes, it could be awarded for donations - the same for example as the kuk Ehrenzeichen/medaille of the red cross or the Hilal-i-ahmer medal.
  18. Hard to say if it is a bavarian bravery medal. Do you have a name on the back? I am not sure, but i mean, there´s a book with pics of the recipients (i do not have it)
  19. Hi i`m doing research on the wuertt. golden MMM (gMMM or MVM1) since a couple of years. In my opinion (and what i saw) the most Subalternoffiziere (Lt./Olt., not Feldwebelleutnants because no officer´s patent) were awarded with the FO2X bevor the got the golden MMM - but not in every times. And there are some guys with "only" the IC2nd class + golden MMM - or only a few (the sources are not complete!) at the beginning of war with "only" a golden MMM (in this time the procedure was divided) The gMMM had a higher rank as the FO2X so normally it had to return to Königliches Münzamt (K.M.). but i know a few cases, in which FO2X and gMMM (if it was an officier and he later won the MMO (MVO) was left in recipient`s hands for memory (?) or if he died in families hands. I have a bar with an early FO2X and gMMM (i showed it at GMIC a few months ago). Also the gMMM was given to ranks over a Subalternoffizier for example "Rittmeister" (= Hauptmann/captain) - but i only knew a few recipients. The most officers did earn the MMO (MVO) between the war and in the 1930s they got his honorable sold for it, as the NCO and EM did get it for earning the gMMM. The problem for ID a (may be later) pilot/"air guy" is also, that "Moser" not always shows the actually troop part of the recipients. Only M 709 at Staatsarchiv Stuttgart shows ~1/3 of the recipients mostly with pics, that could help for ID a guy. (several times i had luck for ID a pic!) Best Joe
  20. Nice but unfortunately the inlet is missing. In my opinion this types of cases are latest made in the early 1920s.
  21. Grandpa got his war aid cross for fighting on the homeland front. I like those "reactivation" guys.
