  1. The Austrian medal is nicely made. I think I could provide an additional information to this soldier. There was a Private Hermann Hüne born on June 14th in Adelebsen, District Göttingen, who was wounded in Spring 1918. Best regards hoh1851
  2. Speaking of the Saxon Regiment 133 I found this photo of an officer of the (active, Reserve or Landwehr) Infantry Regiment 133 in my collection. Unfortunately unnamed.
  3. Many thanks for these information. Reicher seems to be initially a Reserve officer in the 72th Hungarian Infantry Regiment before becoming an active Lieutnant with rank from 1st November 1909 in this Regiment. Promoted to captain with rank 1st May 1917 his wounding is not yet mentioned in the Austrian-Hungarian casulty lists. At least in 1933 he was involved with the Austrian Jewish frontsoldier association. In 1938 he is listed as a Lieutnant-Colonel in Vienna, Rennweg 102.
  4. Many thanks again to all of you for this interesting discussion and the additional information. Speaking of the Bundesheer ribbon bar I saw that there are several Austrian Hungarian rank lists and schematismus online. Are the Bundesheer Schematismus/ Dienstranglisten somewhere online as well? Meanwhile I found some further pictures of Generalmajor Edler von Terboglaw in the Austrian National Archives but unfortunately only one is showing him wearing a ribbon bar. This photo was taken before the awarding of MVK2 and moreover it's of poor quality so not really suitable for a comparison. Best regards and thanks again hoh1851
  5. Many thanks to all of you for your kind assistance and the helpful information and of course for the identification of the former owner. 😀 Best regards hoh1851
  6. Hi Simius Rex, Many thanks for your reply and the valuable hints. 🙂 These are good news. Until now I didn't know that swords-devices were only given to officers. Is there a regulation available showing this? From knowing this is it also possible to determine the award beeing represented by the first bravery ribbon from the left at this bar? Any help is really appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Sincerly hoh1851
  7. Hello, I have this Austrian ribbon bar in my collection. I know that with regards to the ribbon of the Military Merit Cross/ Bravery Medal it is generally nearly impossibile to say which award (Military Merit Cross, Bravery Medal, Merit Cross with Crown, Military Merit Medal etc.) is meant. But since the bars to the awards were normally silver coloured I am wondering whether the award can be narrowed down in this case. In the past I have seen sometimes Military Merit Crosses with a golden bar and swords. Does anyone know whether this was official and if so whether it was only allowed to Military Merit Crosses or also to other awards? Any thoughts are welcome and appreciated. Thanks and best regards hoh1851

    Hello, I am looking to buy photos and citations of Leopold Hederich (1875-1953). He was a Major in Field Artillery Regiment No. 3 in WW1, later in the Weimar Army (co of 6th Artillery Regiment in Minden) and end up as a Generalmajor z.V. in Antwerp in WW2. I am looking especially for his citations to the prussian order of the crown 4th class and the officers long service decoration. Both citations were sold by Weitze in Hamburg some month ago. Please feel free to contact me. Many thanks in advance. Depending on your field of interest a swap could be also possible. Best regards hoh1851

  12. Hi Laurentius, in my opinion there are no doubts with this bar. In the grouping was another one without the KVK ribbon. Best regards hoh1851
  13. I was wondering whether this ribbon bar could belong to Ogilvie. When I bought this bar the seller also had a 3 place large medal bar from the former bearer (IC2 1914, Schwarzburg Medal Silver, Wehrmacht Long Service for 4 years) as well as a single Hohenzollern Hausorden. What are your thougths? Thanks hoh1851
