    Post your French Generals

    Does anyone have general’s items to share?
  3. Does anyone have a Bavarian Flugeladjutant aiguillette that will post images?
  4. Ok, another question. Would the collar tabs on this tunic be 1910 pattern or M1915 pattern added to a 1910/15 tunic?
  5. It depends on how many ribbons are worn. The MOH is always the top ribbon in precedence on the bar. so, if the lower rows are full then the MOH is on a row alone atop the others. If there’s an odd amount, like the Navy Seal, then the MOH will be worn on same row as another ribbon but in higher precedence. the staggered bars are just arranged so all can be seen.
  6. Next question, what color belt buckle would a Bavarian Flugeladjutant wear, silver?
  7. https://www.militaria.at/Book.aspx?book=1596672&Language=de Does this book have any feldgrau uniforms to compare the changes?
  8. 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
  9. Yes, he wears a a Friedensrock. He’s Bavarian but not sure if the collar litzen represents Leib Regt, General Staff, etc.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. He was a a colonel and promoted Generalmajor a la suite Graf Castell-Castell
  13. 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
  14. It’s certainly beautiful. I’ve always loved Bulgarian orders, especially the order of bravery.
  15. 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.
