  1. https://www.militaria.at/Book.aspx?book=1596672&Language=de Does this book have any feldgrau uniforms to compare the changes?
  2. Wouldn’t it be great to have the awards Castell was entitled to display on this tunic? I'm still not convinced Castell was not awarded the EK1 during the war. It’s hard to find good photos of the man but I think this could be him
  3. Yes, he wears a a Friedensrock. He’s Bavarian but not sure if the collar litzen represents Leib Regt, General Staff, etc.
  4. So, I wonder how likely it could be that he was awarded honors not listed in the 1916 nor 1918. in 1916 these awards would have been worn on the breast. It appears only the Franz Joseph would be worn on the right side. (Opposite breast side of medal bar) it looks like his Franz Joseph maybe without War decoration. Bayern Militär Verdienstorden, Offizierskreuz mit Schwertern Bayern Verdienstorden vom heiligen Michael, Offizierskreuz Hohenzollern Hohenzollern Hausorden, Ehrenkomturkreuz mit Schwertern Mecklenburg Greiffenorden, Offizierskreuz Preussen Johanitterorden, Kreuz der Ehrenritter Österreich Franz Josefsorden, Komturkreuz mit der Stern
  5. Thanks, I've never seen that badge before. I wonder if Castell-Castell was awarded any Turkish or Bulgarian awards? It would be reasonable to assume so given his position.
  6. He was a a colonel and promoted Generalmajor a la suite Graf Castell-Castell
  7. What decorations would be appropriate on the right side of the tunic breast? I know the Turkish War Medal and possibly other foreign but I really don’t see many Germans with awards on the right side And on this tunic, two sets of loops on the right
  8. It’s certainly beautiful. I’ve always loved Bulgarian orders, especially the order of bravery.
  9. It’s strange and had to been deliberately done seeing as all would know the rules. I think that’s Castell-Castell, his Flugeladjutant, next to him.
