  1. I believe this last man Obst [Johann] Maximilian [Carl] Freiherr v u z Bodman, a FlüAdj of Ludwig III towards the latter part of the war. he served with bayr 3 FAR and as Mj with bayr 9 FAR. Castell and him looked alike and it can be tricky from afar. The second pic belonged to "HK" would like to credit him and ask him for permission to use. In the Alamy group pic with Ludwig III, third man from right with hands on shoulders of little boy was Walther v Walderstötten. the other three of the four men were: (1) Generalstabsarzt Ritter v Seydel, (3) Nagel zu Aichberg and (4) Walther v Walderstötten and between (3) and (4) was Oberstallsmeister v Leonrod.

  7. The three Grades of Type II Klasse III, left to right: Grade 1: Blossom Band Grade 2: Meander Band Grade 3: Serrate Band Mj Wilhelm Siegert was a winner of Type I Klasse III Grade 3
  8. Posts 19 and 20 should be Type I Klasse IV (just a single Grade exists) It's completely smooth on the edges and it is much bigger than Klasse V Cheers Freiherr
  9. No expert on uniform.... I have never seen a picture of him so would not be able to tell if the tunic would fit him. But you would think he had ordensspange and loops for some basic decorations. None for an ObstAF? Hard to believe. Cheers Elwyn
  10. Soup with pate would seem strange for today. Other than that, looks like trout mousse with tomato sauce, chicken pot pie, beef and grouse with cream sauce. I hope they were small plates. Now the wine list to go with it would be interesting Cheers Elwyn
  11. Ludwig Karl Joachim v Schwerin was ObstLt 12.09.02 E and Kmdr d Kürassier Rgt Kaiser Nikolaus I v Rußland (Brandenburgisches) Nr 6 in 1903. I am not familiar with Großfürst Alexei Alexandrovitch's coat of arms but his younger brother Großfürst Paul Alexandrovitch was à la suite KR6 10.09.72 and Chef d Rgt 19.07.88. Cheers Elwyn
