  1. During 1914 and 1915 five Landwehr Cavalry Regiments were raised . numbered 1 later 10, 2 later 11 , 90 and 92 and i suppose that the fifth was the Garde Landwehr Cavalry Regiment the data is from Nigel Thomas book The German Army in World War One (3) 1917 1918 , ilustrated by Ramiro Bujeiro . i had copied literally except my supossition of the Garde Landwehr Regiment . Thomas said also that they used the uniform of their parent Regiment . its all
  2. He was Transportation Chef of the Prussian Army before the war , then in 1914 Chief of Staff of the Seventh Army under General Josias von Heringen in 1915 Commander of the XIV AK and finally Chief of Staff acting Commander of the X AK in Hannover. please enter your search as follows : Karl von Haenisch the Prussian Machine . there you will find more data
    • Deutschritter About Oberst / General , Alfred Arent I found the following :  The 21st September 1899 by decree of President Julio Argentino Roca then Argentine President was decided to contract the " retired Cavalry Colonel of the German Army "  to organize the Escuela Superior de Guerra ( General Staff School ) . the rank of Argentinian Army General was not mentioned in the decree, of interest is to mention that the decree asigned 600 gold Argentinian pesos to Colonel Arent for expenses for him and his fellow officers contracted

      Deutschritter , I understand that the 600 gold pesos were for the voyage and other costs . not only of Colonel Arent but also of Kornatzki and  Roldan von Strunk. otherwise an yearly or monthly payment must have been stated . a Gold peso of 1899 was equal to 2, 28 Pesos Moneda Nacional which were equivalent to a US dollar . then Colonel Arent received 600 Us dollars , roughly 2 400 Reichsmarks . a good amount

      Thanks for that. 2.400 Reichsmark at that time ... not bad! Do you know more about this Roldan von Strunk? I couldn't find anything about him. Here are some of the names I have, if you can add anything, that would be great:

      Deutschritter ,please excuse me, Roldan von Strunk or Roland was not part of Colonel s Arent mission . by via of a lapsus of mine i included his name. Strunk was an ex officer in the AH Cavalry during WW1 of Prussian birth and after the War in the Freikorps and  Black Reichswehr , friend of Hitler he served as counselor to the Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War . The member of the Arent mission was Bertrand Schunck. Your data about the German Officers that served in the Argentinian Army is better than the available in the Archives of the Argentinian Army Historical Service .  Herzliche Bayerische Grusse !

  3. Since July of 1957 the use of the WW2 Iron Cross was allowed to the recipients , veterans of war . But without the Swastika then, they were manufactured again
  4. A very strange thing , the man wears what looks like a Infantry Kunftigefriedens uniform , Field grey with red collar and brandenburg cuffs piped in white but with the Rank Insignias of a Oberleutnant in the Provisional Reichswehr , the stripes on the cuffs and the Shoulder cords or more properly achselschlinge , he too carries a Prussian officer Pickelhaube .
  5. The Family of Nicholas II . the captions of the Pics are wrong . Empress Alexandra Feodorovna wears Uhlan Uniform, Great Duchess Olga also wears Uhlan uniform and Great Duchess Tatiana Hussars uniform
  6. GFM von der Goltz was send to Argentina in 1910 by the Kaiser as his personal representant to the 100 years conmemoration of Argentinian Independence . Its more than possible that he received some Argentinian Diplomatic decoration .
  7. The tall man with eagle on the lapel looks like Herr Ernst Putzi Hanfstaengl a close friend of Adolf Hitler from 1922 until 1937
  8. Hello , Prince Joachim is wearing the uniform of the 13th of Prussian Hussars , called the Hessische husaren . the officer with him probably is a former fellow officer of the Prince when he served in the First Foot Guards Regiment and not an aide
  9. Hello , The Peruvian Air Force adopted around 1939 Italian M 1933 steel helmets for use of the ground personnel and AA servers . The Army for their side weared Adrian Helmets . The Peruvian helmets carried on the front a radiant sun of about 60 mm of diameter . the colour of the Air force helmets was grey blue
  10. Hello , Deutschritter , Sehr interesant ! I think that Herr Trutzschler von Falkenstein was a Royal Prussian Hauptmann der Reserve but his Civilian ocupation was that of Chemist . I dont believe that he was a Stabsarzt or Oberstabarzt if so the caption of the pic will say Royal prussian Oberstabarzt or Stabsarzt , apart the uniform he wears is clearly not Medical . Thank you for your interest !
  11. A curiosity, on the picture of the GFM von der Goltz with a nurse and a officer with red cross armband ,calls my atention the fact that the officer wears the uniform of a Infantry Regiment with litzen on collar and Brandenburg cuffs and not the uniform of a Medical Corps doctor .
  12. I am almost sure that the number 5 is Admiral Georg Alexander von Muller who replaced in 1906 Admiral Gustav von Senden Bibran as Chief of the Naval Cabinet of Wilhelm II until 1918 , everywhere the Kaiser goes ,Von Muller was aside him
  13. Hello , the man is a forester the date of the pic could be fix around 1860 / 1865 , the cut of the litewkas and the trousers , handmade both , the hat is also of old style with a round top
  14. I thik that the cap is not a transitional cap but a cap for Cyclist normally weared with goggles . your transitional caps were normally pillbox type forage caps in blue with red band to which some sort of peak was crudely added giving to the Infantry soldiers a unsoldierly appareance according to the words of General de Selliers the Belgian chief of staff at the beggining of the war
  15. The Field grey version of the Landwehr Kavallerie Officers Waffenrock
  16. Ferdinand of Bulgaria after his abdication returned to Germany and lived in Coburg until his death in 1948 . Hitler apreciated much the Inteligent and witty Ferdinand
  17. Hello Valter , The subject of the origins ,migration and mixing of Peoples is very interesting and complex . I am glad that you understands my point of view ,Kind regards
  18. Grey C : I only punctualized the fact that the German Jews served as OYV in many cases . They have the required money to do so . and the education required to become reserve Leutnant after pass all the exams and fulfill the requisites . If they were commisioned is another thing. the exception were the Baptized Jews which more or less could reach the rank of Leutnant . Others as Hugo Gutmann (1880 1962 ) joined the Army ( Bavarian in his case ) served two years and was posted in the Reserve with the rank of Feldwebel . when the War was declared in 1914 he was recalled and destined to serve in the 16th Reserve Infantry Regiment of the Bavarian Army. he was commisioned in April of 1915 . Gutmann was the direct chief of Adolf Hitler and proposed him to the EK first class . I think that the Jews who were commisioned during the War could have been former OYVs
