  8. Hello o3fahnen, In the site Lexicon der Wehrmacht appears Lt General Max Dennerlein 1885 1957 , a Bavarian Pioniere officer his Service record is very detailed but nothing about awards . he served in WW1 , stayed in the Reichswehr and then in the Wehrmacht , Generalmajor in 1938 and Generalleutnant in 1940 , he was wounded in 1940 during the Battle of France , during 1942 he was commander of the 290 th Infantry Division trapped int the pocket of Demyansk , succesfully evacuated by the Luftwaffe, so he might wear the Demyansk Shield apart from the wounded badge

  13. Hello GdC 26, If Glen C says that GO von Prittwitz was the only officer of these rank a la suite of the 6th IR I have nothing more to say. Regarding the measurement on a pic .well ,you knows the button diameter so you can catch the aproximate size of the tunic from collar to waist, you knows the probable length and width of the Shoulder boards then you have the shoulder width, whit these measures you have the aproximate waist width , the collar patchs normally were about 7 x 4 cm ,you can calculate the collar height
  14. Strong Austro Hungarian influence in the uniforms
  15. Hello gentlemen : The historian sir Max Hastings says in his book 1914 , that the German General Staff comprised in the verge of WW1 625 officers of all rank and that they worked in extreme austerity ,no mess ,no cleaning personnel ,a minimum of clerks and a sole telephone cabin for external calls. officers acted as clerks and inclusive as typewriters .every year the documents and planifications declared obsolete were destroyed by the officers . during the war the number of officers in the General Staff do not raise so much because of the time required to form a Staff Officer properly.

Wrangel, Certainly the Kudu was the heraldic animal of british Somaliland ,between 1950 and 1960 figured in the coat of arms of Somaliland the head of a kudu with a royal crown over it. but the panther figured in the coat of arms of the Italian Somaliland and in that of the Republic of Somalia .
