  1. Chris ,I understand your point of view about the Nazi Kulturbearer Sic . but regarding the War Veterans as a whole i want to said that the mixture of Heros and Bastards was very current among War Veterans of every country and in all the Wars . I want to say too that in a War with millions of men movilized for the real fight or for reaguard duties all previous dispositions regulating the concession of awards were desbordated and they were adequated amplying whitin the frame existent the scope of the concession .

    Difficult to be absolutely certain, but I think this chap may well be the then Major i.G. Eugen Trautmann.

    I haven´t heard from that... The german orders were clear. 1st the own medals, then the others.

    Otherwise it might be ordered by A.K.O. see below.

    But, maybe you´re right. The german soldiers, who were in turkish services, "belonged" to the turkish empire, so they had to wear the medals in the ottoman way... isn´t it?

    Like I said, I´m not sure...

    Perhaps as a courtesy to the Sultan the German Officers were authorized to wear first their Turkish awards . after all they were commisioned into the Ottoman Army as  the prussian states ,  The German Civil Servants that were Ottoman Government Officials must wear the red Fez whe in service .I have a few Pics of my Paternal Grandfather who served as Civil Servant in Turkey during WW1 and in all he wears the Fez .

    Hi everybody

    I have a pair on officer shoulder board from Jäger Bataillon 13. The number is unique in the German Army (as you can see on the photos). A friend give me the authorization to publish his pair of Epaulette from JB 13.

    I'm interesting to know when this particularity was adopted. I can't find this information. Thanks for your help.

    Don't hesitate to show yours
