  1. 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
  2. Detailed informations from 1926 "Ehrentafel und Stammliste des Garde-Reiter-Regiments" Gruß Stefan Same source
  3. 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.de/bio_dor_schu/bio_dorsch_schu_01.html Gruß Stefan
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. He died 1903. Attached his entry from Verlohren This picture of him was sold a couple of years ago on ebay. Gruß Stefan
  8. 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. Division. That´s correct. Gruß Stefan
  9. Tony, the regiment was part of the 24th (2nd saxon) Division Gruß Stefan
  10. Got some new cards . Publisher is Cross's Library Folkestone and artist signed Robbie. Anyone know who´s hiding behind him? Gruß Stefan
  11. Please take a look at the Dresdner Salonblatt . It included a lot of photographs of high ranking officers (Saxon mainly) in relative usable quality, see attachment. Also some useful background information. Another great strike of the Dresden State-Library! Gruß Stefan
  12. And here´s his medalbar from the Sammlung Siebentritt in 2002
  13. Dear Mrs. Kennedy-Corwin, I have a special interest in Lucas Kirsten as he was an exeptional phenomenon into the saxon army. If it´s in your interest I would like to get in touch with you very much and exchange infomations. For example, a friend of mine have 2 photos of his funeral ceremony in December 1917 in Bousbeque. Regards Stefan
  14. Nice french drawing from artist Caran d'Ache issued in Le Rire magazine, around 1902. Gruß Stefan
  15. They do and are still in use by the brandenburg Ministry of the Interior. Sorry but find no proper pictures of it. http://www.mik.brandenburg.de/media_fast/4055/Anfahrt MI.pdf http://www.erstes-garderegiment.de/indexalt.htm The monument itself was blewn up in 1946 as of order of the communist government. As a special act of humiliation it had to be done by former member s of the regiment. http://www.erstes-garderegiment.de/indexalt.htm Gruß Stefan
  16. Good morning. The artist is Kurt/Curt Ziegra, see the signature on the Epp-card. They were part of a series of 7 - 8 cards. Gru´Stefan
  17. In case of Lehmann he isn´t listed in both works unfortunately. I´m sorry. Stresemann was promoted to Fähnrich in 1905 so he probably joined the army that year or 1904. I guess his birthdate between 1882-1885 (+/- 2 years). After the war he staeyd in Leipzig, see the attachment from Leipziger Adreßbuch 1927. He´s listed in the Leipziger Adreß Buch till 1942. In the 1943 edition his trace is lost. In 1939 he was Major (E) 01.04.34 at Stab Wehrmachtfürsorge-u.Versorgungsamt Leipzig, see http://forum.panzer-archiv.de/viewtopic.php?p=202169 Regards Stefan
  18. In that case please find attached a scan from the work of Erhard Roth: "Sächsisches Offizierkorps". I still couldn´t identify his birthplace. Possibly Dresden as a found 2 other saxon officers (former absolvents of the saxon cadet corps) with this name, who were natives of Dresden and maybe brothers (unconfirmed) of Erich. Please let me know if you need more details of his (peacetime) military service. As you may know, Stresemann is a famous name in Germany through the German Weimar Republic Foreign minister Gustav Stresemann which lots of german streets are named. Lots of greetings Stefan
