  1. It appears both emperor and king have entourage wear their adjutant aiguillette all time. However, it doesn’t seem to common otherwise. great thread
  2. Interesting- have you found any photos of this man? what awards did he have leading up to 1916?
  3. Nice tunic- I've never seen a Franz Joseph Order Officers Cross with Fangs. However, I haven’t seen everything so they probably exist. Were there any Royals assigned to the Regt with this ranks?
  4. How’d you spot that? It looks to be located where the medical patch would normally be applied on the tunic
  5. Chris, this has made me want to pull out my references on officer’s board evolution. I really don’t know when the first subdued boards came about but had thought 1915. I know the Bavarian’s lagged behind the Prussians in uniform changed officially but not sure if that was the case in practice. I noticed the book in the bottom right corner of you picture so I looked and it does reference 1914/15 subdued boards on page 250.
  6. How many Major's weren’t awarded the EK1 until the time these boards began being produced? Or, were there any newly promoted to major rank that had yet to be awarded the EKI before then?
  7. if it’s not the world's best then it’s right up there with the best. I love that type material and the insignia look terrific. Can you post images of the boards and tabs?
  8. It may be Turkish though the white stripes are narrow. I really like the crown and swords on the Bavarian. They’re perfect for the award.
  9. Simius Rex, I have one bar with mini breast star devices and I’m pretty sure it’s authentic. However, they don’t seem to be the quality you show on the trifold ribbon. I’m no expert on these mini devices and this is my only bar with these higher orders. Ill look for better pics
  10. It would be wonderful to find a photo of Prittwitz in the field gray uniform of Gren Regt 6. but there are few photos of Prittwitz as far as I know but many photos never make it to the interwebs.... This is an interesting discussion so far.
