  1. Hi Uwe, A very nice piece. I have seen one on a bar a few years ago - and i did not buy it :(
  2. Hello imperialists 😄 I got a photocard of a Weimar guy on it. It has no date and wasn`t written. I believe it is an Obersteuermann (in english: helmsman?) with his two anchors on the shoulderboards. Now my question - why does he have collar mirrors ? Is it a mixed uniform - early, or was it normal? Thanks ! zähringer 38.tif
  3. A very good page. I like it and it helped me a few times to ID some kind of uniforms and other things.👍 If you want, you can add the pic of my shown Freikorps guy to your page. In this time it has been in my collection. I sold it later, because i am not a Freikorps collector`s guy.
  4. Could it be an early Reichswehr uniform? He definitely wears the IC & Anhalt Friedrichskreuz for combatants. The two stripes = Infanterie Lehrregiment (?) Freiwillige, are you the guy of that cool photo hp. with all those uniform pics?
  5. Wooow. Thats cool. Seems that we have him. He´s also on Wikipedia.👍
  6. Bars with Sicherheitsdienstauszeichung are definitely rare. I am still looking for one with IC non combatant. Nice pic - i like those nurse pics. They are definitely not so easy to find. A little mystery: Who am I ? Which ribbon do I wear? I know decorations (turkish war medal... ) which does have those Kleeblatt mark with J H W in it.
  7. Hi to all! Here we have a pic of a 1914/18 veteran. He wears a NS-badge with swastika to his non combatant bar. Does anybody know which kind of badge it is? THANKS. zähringer 30.tif
  8. Hi to all photo freaks: Here i show you one of my photos. It was taken in Belgium in 1915. The guys had a group breakfirst (so i can read it on the backside) - the guy in the middle is a Geheimrat with a IC non combatant in his buttonhole. (1915 is really early for that ribbon!) I cannot read his name. who can help? Thanks. zähringer 37.tif
  9. I am not the biggest fan of ribbon bars - but ccj you have definitely some very nice ones in your collection. Can i have a good pic of the württemberg ones?
  10. Hi again, Here i have a new pic for my collection. The photo was taken in Dresden /Saxony in 1921. The guy wears a ribbon bar with -i mean- Friedrich August medal saxony, prussian IC, and saxon general honour badge. Also the IC 1st class. Is it a Reichswehr guy or a early saxon policeofficer? Thanks for help. zähringer 20.tif
  11. There arealso a lot of HOH X freak pics in the Landesarchiv Stuttgart "M 707 or M 708" Mostly reactivated veterans of WW1
  12. Yes, the Bathildis medal is really not often seen on medal bars. Sometimes you can find NC bars with Oldenburg FAK on combatant ribbon (means mixed bars) - or on non-combatant ribbon. I have both of them.
  13. Here i have another card. It was taken in Sausheim /Elsaß (Alsace; today France) in 1917. I think the guys are musicians. But why the do not wear those Schwalbennester? The guy in the middle wears a very large medal bar. Is it possible to ID him / the unit? Under his medal bar he is wearing the IC. I think pos. 1 is a bavarian MMC without X. The 2nd guy on the left seems to be a bavarian official. He wears the ribbon to the MMC for war merit ("Beamtenband") Thanks for watching. zähringer 21.tif
  14. I like the Waldeck bar but the price was really crazy. Note that normally the war aid cross war worn on pos. 2. - not 3. - your location is Malta - are you Wolf of the W.A.F.? I am nearly sure, that the shown Frackspange of Gensui was worn by a marine guy - and a Ingenieur (officier´s grade) It fits with the HHC and the Oldenburger on combatant ribbon. I think no paymaster - i`ve seen a lot of that guys with AEZ silver or bronce and sometimes with KO4 because they started as Mannschaftsgrad. The most IC non combatant bars were worn by military officials and industrial guys - not by medics. (only if they served on the home front) Markus B. has a lot of navy data.
  15. This bar was definitely worn by a medic or doc because of the last decoration (ottoman red crescent medal with oaks) It fits with IC on combatant ribbon and TWM for combatants/ bulgarian MMO X Sometimes you can find pieces with oaks on a Feldspange. To find one on a regular medal bar is nearly unpossible. I have only seen a handful bar in the last years. I have one of the bronce grades. The Knopflochschleife with Johanniter was worn by a 1870/71 veteran. I think a person which served in the Freiwillige Krankenpflege or it was an official. No war fighter. I think you cannot ID your button holes. The RKM3 or 2 (red cross medal) was also worn by officials, nurses (on a Damenschleife) or some kind of other persons (for money donations) Do (any of) you have photos of Stabsärzte or the like awarded with that medal? Yes, i do. (WW1) Stabsarzt Dr. Rosenthal or for example OSA. Dr. Ullrich
  16. Good to have this forum. Nice pic. If you want to sell it in future, please let me know. I think i got his Soldbuch of 1914/15.
  17. Yes very good for us researchers - they took the most of the archive data outside of Stuttgart bevor 1944. Especially i like the high detailed pics. The most of M 707, 708 709 photos are saved on my PC - ...was a really hard work. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Are we in or are we out?:) - nearly every day when i read the newspapers i think: What the hell they are doing over there??? If they will not chance their minds, i think you`re out .. hard out.😬
  18. Now i know him - he`s from our Archive in Stuttgart. I like the pic, because he has the MKF knight on his bar.
  19. Wagner is a german mass name like schmidt, Maier, Müller, Schulz and others... Who is the guy in your avatar? I know that face but not his name.
