  1. Update: I received the following additional information from Feldgrau-Forum The medals are from left to right Medal Militaire Croix de Guerre 14-18 with a "Citation" medal 1870-71 with (volunteer?) Clasp On the far right a shooting clip Below the English Medal de Crimée (Does that mean that he could have participated in the Crimean War as a child?)
  2. Good evening. I was able to acquire this wonderful picture today, although France is not my collecting area. The label on the back reads as follows: "Remembering the Great War of a voluntary zouave from 1870 ..................... from 1914 Volunteer for the East Senior citizen in the French army Class of 1869 Sergent L. Paul. " Are there specialists here in the forum who can give me more details? Especially about his medals? The second in the top row is most likely the Croix de Guerre. Is there a (theoretical) possibility to identify the man on the basis of personnel records? Thank
  3. Here's another shot of him as Hauptmann in Garde-MG-Abt. 1 (Source: Hilsenbeck: Deutsche Offiziershelme, Volume 1) Anyone know when he was in Southwest Africa? Can't find any clue in the Ranklists. Gruß Stefan
  4. Detailed informations from 1926 "Ehrentafel und Stammliste des Garde-Reiter-Regiments" Gruß Stefan Same source
  5. One more card. The whole series consists of 6 cards. Extract from Schumacher/Dorsch: A. Paul Weber: Leben und Werk "...Weitere Kontakte folgten, so zum Verlag Fritz Würtz in Berlin-Steglitz, der ein Aquarell Webers (Blick auf Wilna) als Postkarte herausbrachte, und zum Verlag der Wanderschriften-Zentrale, Hellerau bei Dresden, der dem Gedankengut der Jugendbewegung nahe stand. Hier erschienen 1917 die drei sechsteiligen Postkartenserien (Anm. 056) „Deutsches Kriegsziel“, „Heil Stosstrupp“ und „Die deutsche Frau in der Heimarmee“ see http://www.weber-museum
  6. Jungnickel was in GR 101 the whole war. The action for his HoH-Awarding happened during the Gr0ße Schlacht in Frankreich at the end of march 1918. At that time he was a battallion cdr. in above regiment. PS: sent you a message. Gruß Stefan
  7. Here is a period newspaper article (in german only, I´m sorry) from 1914 about Veit and his unique medal combo in the German Army. It tells among other things that he received the the golden and silver turkish livesaving medal for rescuing drowning people two times in series! Gruß Stefan
  8. Hi. bought this photo of a saxon Hauptmann at the weekend. Clearly visible his shoulderboards with "178" or "179". Dedication reads: "z. Erinnerung an Wurzen August 1917" But his signature is still a misery for me. First I thougt Köhnecke but can´t find nobody on Ranklists or Roth. What are youre clues? Gruß Stefan
  9. He died 1903. Attached his entry from Verlohren This picture of him was sold a couple of years ago on ebay. Gruß Stefan
  10. Wiki isn´t correct. Attached a Scan of the saxon ranklist 1914. IR 139 was still a part of 24th Division, 47th brigade in 1914. It only switched the brigade. IR 133 and 134 formed 89th brigade / 40th. division till 1915. Then 89th brigade (IR 133, 139, 179) was transferred in Spring 1915 to 24th. Divison when the composition of german infantry divisions was changed into only one brigade of 3 regiments per division instead of 2 brigades of 2 regiments so far. So IR 139 was transferred into that brigade then as IR 134 left the brigade and became part of 88th. brigade (IR 104, 134, 181) /40th. Di
  11. Tony, the regiment was part of the 24th (2nd saxon) Division Gruß Stefan
