  1. In the Ehrenbuch you only can find recipients of the GMMM and only those guys who were members of that re founded "club" in around 1957. I have had 5 pieces of the Ehrenbuch and sold 2 of them in the past. Its hard to find a numbered piece of them with certificate in it and signed by Albert Mayer.

    A good book with the recipients of the MMO is the Moser book in its version around 1936. (Christian Belser Verlag, Stuttgart)

    I.m.o not all versions does include this list. You can find it for may be 50 or more EUR.

    I am writing on an article about the GMMM. Its not finished yet, but i have more than 100 pages about it, with a lot of photos.

    Uwes shop is down. He had an accident and now he is on holidays.

    I do not know, if he will open it again.



  2. Now, i understand.

    I will make a try to contact him over email.

    On weekend i think¬† (may be!) he makes¬† a visit at Christian¬īs auction. (Bene Merenti)

    Unfortunately  i am not in Stuttgart. - May be one of the GMIC users here. (????)

    I wrote a PM to him over email, now.

    ... and yes, a Wilhelm Ernst Kriegskreuz is not really cheap.

    But note: If you want to send it as a standard DHL package it doesn`t have an transport insurance!!!

    (only for items till 500,00 EUR). If your item does have more worth than 500,00 EUR and the package

    is lost - you won`t get 1 Cent by DHL!!!

  3. My english is not good enough to understand all:

    What`s your problem?

    Did you buy some offered pieces and they did not arrive yet?

    Or did you sell some pieces to him and you`re waiting for your money?

    If you did buy something - in my opinion it is not unusual, that packages

    from Germany to Australia need some weeks to arrive.

    In all of my years i did buy things nearly from all parts of the world. I have waited only a few days - till 8 weeks.

    I know Sascha W. as a good guy - i don`t think, that he will hang you down.


  4. I think your guy could be "Berckhemer".

    In the 1913 book he`s listed as Kriegsgerichtssekretär at the 2nd Division at Ulm.

    -s.V.M. - DA1 - R.A.M.

    Normally 1870 war commemorative medal and Centenialmedals are not listed in most books.

    He fought in 1870 - so he must be born around 1850 (not earlier because no 1866 medal) - in 1913 he was 63 years old.

    Sekret√§r would also fit - it¬īs a lower officials rank.

    The (only not listed) medal on his bar may be it was given as he was retired. (normally between 63 and 65 years)

  5. could you please share with me why do you think so?

    For drinking a lots of Vodka with russian guys. ūü§©

    No,  the Schlossgardekompagnie did make some parade stuff if higher foreign people visit the royal family.

    And because till 1914 Russia did not have the status of an enermy country AND queen Olga was

    a born Romanowa i think these guys would fit.

    Olga did a lot of good things to the state of W√ľrttemberg. - Today there`s still a Olga hospital (the citizen of Stuttgart say Olg√§le), an Olgastreet , a very tasty Olga Bretzel, an old Russian church in Stuttgart and W√ľrttemberg has the Grenadierregiment "K√∂nigin Olga" 119. The people say, the last king of W√ľrttemberg - Wilhelm II. was very unhappy to fight against Russia in WW1.

    You can see the "Knutschl√∂we" on the link. (behind the monument generations of young couples did meet and gave kisses to each other -¬† I also did with my wife in younger years)ūüėė



  6. Nice piece. The frame and the inlet are looking old (or "old styled") - very nice (i don¬īt like old things hanging in modern frames)

    What do we know?

    -WW1: Lt. or Olt. or may be Hauptmann

    After 1918; Probably a Reichwehr guy.

    In around 1936: He served as a reactivated veteran in the Luftwaffe.

    In 1938: March over the border to Sudetenland (occupation tchechoslovakia)

    In 1939 or later: Not serving on the front, again (i guess) - only home front may be in a staff - no clasp to the IC2 1914, Ostmedaille.... - the KVK2X was also given to persons who served on the homefront (may be he got the swords for merit in cause of a bombing attack or something in that way)

    The bar was made in this time.

    i think in this time he served as a Hauptmann or Major or Oberstleutnant. (Stabsoffizier)
