  1. The Index thread to compliment this superb thread is now up to date. As always, if you spot any mistakes etc just let me know.
  2. Courtesy of new member Erik E: This is my first post. Start with this E.K. 2. "urkunde" from 18. august 1916 to ??? L. Hermann signed 20. august 1916 by Major und Kommandeur der Pioniere IX K.A. Krischbert ? I have sought on the internet and can not find anything. Do any of the members know who this is? Courtesy of member The Prussian: Hello! Does anyone have an officers list of the High command of Heeresgruppe Mackensen in 1917 including turkish officers? I need to know who signed this paper (it´s for a v
  3. Does anyone know who signed this? It has been signed on behalf of rather than by the person who held the position so can not find anything that fits. At the date show Karl Kriebel held the position shown on the citation while Ernst-Eberhard Hell held the command position in VII.Armeekorps - neither signature matches.
  4. To compliment the outstanding Kriegsmarine Cap Tallies thread here is an index to help people look for any examples that have already been posted. Just because an example has been posted please do not stop posting any similar examples of a cap tally in wear as the index can be updated as and when required to include it. There does seem to be a formatting issue when having to inset new entries in-between existing ones which leaves a bigger than normal space between the entries. If anyone knows how to overcome this without it breaking the links your help would be appreciated. M
  5. Of the handful of Reuter's listed, the closest to match in terms of arm of service is a Hauptmann Reuter serving in Infanterie-Rgt 116 but that is most probably Erich Reuter who won the DKiG as a Major in February 1942, RK as an Oberstleutnant in August 1942 and the Oakleaves in January 1945 as a Generalmajor while always serving as an infantry officer and not panzergrenadier.
  6. The only names listed in the 01-1939 Stellenbesetzung that start with REU are: Reubert Reuchlin von Reumont Reuning Reusch Reuschling Reuse Reuss Reussner Reuter Reuthe Reuther Reutter Graf Reuttner von Wehl
  7. They list German servicemen missing in action by unit in WW2, some with a photo. That's just a small amount of the full series. They are all online for free now. DRK: https://vbl.drk-suchdienst.online/
  8. From member CanCol: Greetings, everyone. I need help identifying a signature and I am hoping someone knows who this is. The signature is from 1941 and for the Kreisleiter of Kreis IX, NSDAP Gau Berlin. It is my understanding all, or almost all documents for Kreis IX were destroyed in 1945 or were captured by the Soviet Union. Can anyone identify this signature? Many thanks, Barb
  9. I don't often post items from my collection anymore but here is one item that I was able to trade for earlier this year during the height of the pandemic and being primarily a Grossdeutschland collector it will be hard for me to top. It is the Soldbuch and Führerschein to General der Panzertruppe Gerhard Graf von Schwerin who would win the Knights Cross, Oakleaves and Swords. In 1939 he was assigned as battalion commander of I/Infanterie-Rgt GD and would actually command the regiment for the opening of the invasion of France due to von Stockhausen being away for a few days (von Stockhausen's s
  10. Same here. I have little interest in WW1 but have read every WW1 related article, and the same with the article comparing the British & German engines which is really not my area of interest but fascinating to read. And I love the artwork. Computer designed images, especially aircraft or vehicle profiles, are perfectly fine but the hand drawn examples used in the magazine add an extra dimension to the quality of the profiles.
  11. Aye, I have been in from the start. Issue 4 failed to arrive originally but the publishers sent me another copy so I am all up to date. To begin with I was undecided to get the physical version of the magazine or the digital version but I have a couple of other magazines I get as digital versions and rarely read them whereas with the physical version of Iron Cross magazine I read it from cover to cover.
  12. The Iron Cross binder has just arrived and unlike other binders I have seen in the past has an easy to use method to contain the magazines that won't damage the page edges. Still haven't settled where on the shelves to put it though.
  13. The unit is Ergänzungskampfgruppe 5 which was a bomber training unit, a sort of battle school - it is this one here based in Barth: http://www.ww2.dk/air/kampf/ergkgr5.htm Fliegerhorst Barth: http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/Kasernen/Wehrkreis02/Kaserne_BarthFliegerhorst-R.htm The pilot is listed in the Volksbund and is buried in Aachen while his casualty card gives the cause of his death as an accident near a place called Bankow/Brankow which I can find no mention of.
