  1. Marmier, Isaac Cyprien Friedrich Carl was born on 30th January 1976 in Friedrichsdorf (Hesse) from French Huguenots’ descent (see also the first and middle names of him and his father). On this marriage document of 20th September 1906 he’s registered as Reallehrer Doctor Philosophiae. He’s listed as fallen June 15th 1916 on the Estern front in today’s West Ucraina near Tarnopol, ex Gnilowody (Galizien, KuK Österreich-Ungarn Kaiserreich) today Hwardijśke (obwód tarnopolski). Very interesting 🧐
  2. Dear forumites, My brother just acquired this nice photo in Switzerland. Could you identify this officer by the name of Carl Marnier (Maronier) or other? I couldn't find on the Rangliste 1918 (1926). Many thanks in advance! Cheers, Claudio
  3. Posting these two bars, since sometimes wearers wanted to have both versions of their medals being shown on the military uniform or in civil attire (tuxedo).
  4. Last addition to my collection, a 4 placed Weimar era medal bar also shown on J. Nimmergut’s book on “ Abzeichen und Auszeichnungen deutscher Kriegervereine: 1800 - 1943” : Ehren- und Erinnerungskreuz des Marinekorps Flandern, Bronze mit sechs Bandspangen "ANTWERPEN" "YSER" "YPERN" SOMME" "FLANDERNSCHLACHT" und "DURCHBRUCHSSCHLACHT"; Königreich Preußen: Militär-Dienstauszeichnung für Unteroffiziere und Soldaten, 2. Modell (1913-1920), Kreuz 1. Klasse für XV Dienstjahre, Zink; Regiments-Erinnerungskreuz, Buntmetall vergoldet, mit zwei Bandspangen "RES. JNF. RGT. 227" und "RES. JNF. RGT. 263"; Kyffhäuser Kriegsdenkmünze 1914-1918 des Deutschen Reichskriegerbundes "Kyffhäuser" mit Frontkämpfer-Abzeichen, Buntmetall vergoldet, mit Schwertern.
