German/Prussian M1910 Help with Translation/Research
I recently acquired a WW1 German/Prussian private purchase M1910 Captains Tunic and hat. Although there is no identifying names etc. on the tunic, the officers hat that came with it are a couple names in it. Landst Olbrisch, and under the sweat band was the name “Balan.”
A search on Ancestry WW1 German Files found a Major George Balan of the 31st Infantry Regiment/Magdeburg. For Major Balan there are wound records for August 19,1916; May 5,1917 and September 1,1917.
As far as the written words Landst Olbrisch, it may be an area , street or maybe a name? I found one listing for a Lt. Olbrisch with an Artillery Regiment Number 5 in the Prussian Officers directory on Ancestory.
If I could get these correct translations, and any other information, records on Balan and Olbrisch , it would be greatly appreciated.
