  1. THANK YOU My Friend, you pretty much confirmed my assumption. Based upon the above, 2nd in the list was abbreviated also, that may well be the case with the 3rd example ? As I know have the original documents in hand, I will Post them, rather than have people try to assist me working off somewhat less than legible copies. And yes, he does appear to have been some form of Civil Servant, having served within the City / Town's Administration. [ Also evidenced by his 25 year Service Medal ] I've also been advised that the 'pink' Wehrpass F Notice' was something advising the civilian populace as ho
  2. Hey Folks, I just realized that 'my man' received an additional medal / award for his Great War service. His Wehrpass lists 3 specific items, with the first 2 being, E.K. II, & 'Front Fighters Cross', aka Hindenburg Cross. As to the 3rd entry, I'm uncertain other than it's some type / form of Cross ? Does anyone recognize this particular award ? His unit was formed & originated from Hesse, so naturally I thought perhaps it was from there, but after an albeit brief search, I find no such award. ANY information on this 'Cross' will be much appreciated. THANKS AGAIN !
  3. THANK YOU so very much 'Simius Rex', & 'Bayden' too, as always, I truly do appreciate each & every reply ! I admit that my initial Posts were quite lacking in legible details, but now that I've received the actual Grouping, I can improve upon my original Posts. I'm also pleased with that fact that I'm able to confirm with almost 100% certainty as to his E.K. II being an officially authorized decoration, due to it's notation on page 24 of his WW2 issue Wehrpass. And, in reference to his Genealogical Study, it consists of 4 pages, not just the 1st page I Posted. In fact, this
  4. THANK YOU Simius, You're reply is exactly what I was looking for. And, it is specifically noted on one of his documents that his service was performed 'at the Front' There is some additional wording on this same form, but as I unfortunately don't speak or read German, I suspect that's the more to to gleaned from those few sentences. I'm preparing to photograph these particular documents, & hopefully, once Posted here, someone may find a few interesting & informative tidbits within them ? THANKS Best, Dom
  5. Hello Gents, I just wished to update my information regarding the authenticity of this individual being officially authorized the E.K. II, as noted on his Genealogical document. Someone, in addition to myself were seemingly concerned as to the apparent lack of his official E.K. II Award Document, although a few of his other certificates were present ? So basically, all I had was the fact of it being included on his Family Lineage document. Well, hopefully, I can put this to rest & confirm the award, based upon what I 'think' is it being listed on page 24 of his WW2 era We browse, along w

  7. Hello Folks, I do have one more question pertaining to this particular Group, & hope someone can assist me in solving it ? The above noted 'Sanitater & Musiker' [ also referred to in some of his documents by his Gefreiter Rank ] was awarded the E.K. II either on 27 January 1916, or for an act performed on that date, but unfortunately when obtained its Ribbon was missing ? So, based upon his unit designation, & or function, which E.K. II Ribbon type would be most appropriate for his decoration, the 'Combatant' version, or the 'Non-Combatant' variety ? Unfortunately it appears as if
  8. Thanks Bayern , I again appreciate your kind reply. My primary purpose was / is to determine if he would have been assigned to the small Medical Section of his particular Infantry Kompanie, or instead would have been attached to an actual Infantry Squad as an Aid Man, or Medic ? Yes, it's an wholly academic question, but I was simply wondering as to his precise location of assignment within his assigned 1st Kompanie ? I do admit that in many cases I tend to over document my respective medal groups, & thereby end up at the proverbial 'dead end', so to speak. Sometimes there's only so deep

  10. Hello Gentlemen, Hopefully this is the proper sub-section for this query ? I realize that there were numerous types & duties amongst the WW1 era German medical personnel, but I'm interested in determining the primary duties & functions of someone listed as an, 'Sanitater & Musiker', who was assigned to the 1st Kompanie of Reserve Infantry Regiment Nr. 80 ? [ His actual Rank was listed as an Gefreiter. ] Would he have served as an Stretcher Bearer, an Aid Man / Medic, or perhaps someone who would have been assigned / attached to the Infantry Kompanie's Medical Detachment ? If could
  11. Hello Gentlemen, Could anyone tell me anything regarding the below named Scottish Volunteer, & or his particular unit ? In addtion to serving with the Lanark Rifles, he later emmigrated to the USA where he went of to command an American State Militia unit, the 'United Train of Artillery', of Bristol, Rhode Island. He later passed away & is buried here in Rhode Island. ©>>> PVT. ROBERT BAIN, Enlisted in "76th COMPANY, 1st LANARK RIFLE VOLUNTEERS" { aka PORT DUNDAS CORPS } NOTE: 76th Company was later renamed, & or reorganized as "P Company, 1st Lanark Rifle Volunteers"
  12. Seeking Additional Information on WW1 Group to L/Cpl. [ Later Lieutenant ] Alan HOCKLY, WIA at Loos, 25 - 26 September 1915, while serving with 6th Battalion [ Service ] Cameron Highlanders ? I've had this Group for a while now, & although I've been relatively fortunate in researching & documenting his service, I'm still curious as to which German, or Central Powers units the 6th Cameron's were facing, & ultimately were engaged with on 25 / 26 September 1915 ? { Just as an 'aside', I later determined that Hockly was closely related to one of the 'founding families', so to speak, wh
  13. Hello Gents, In the interest of being thorough, I've decided to add the below Files, as perhaps someone may see something within them to further my knowledge of this Group. Lately, I just can't seem to get away from attempting to research guys who choose not to utilize their 1st name, as in this particular case. He was apparently born as Wilhelm Heinrich, although appears to have preferred to go by just Heinrich.[ Didn't he realize that by doing so it was going to cause some obscure 'Yank' problems 100 years down the road ? In fact, I just finished researching an American Civil War Lieutenant
  14. Yes, I thought so to until I noted the date attributed to it on one of the Genealogical documents. It specifically notes 27 January 1916, so there's got to be something to it anyway, I do hope ? Note that towards the bottom of this attached document, you will observe that it specifically refers to an E.K. II being awarded, with the date of 27 January 1916 being specified. Now yes, I do admit to it is indeed not the official award document, however, in my experience, it's quite unlikely that he would have claimed such had it not been a genuine award. [ I could indeed be wrong though, but in
