    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?

    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 visit of the imperial castle in Bucharest)

    He was the Imperial Turkish authorized general staff officer in the high command of the army group Mackensen.

    Major Tewfik (Binbaşı Tevfik): chief of staff 26th turkish Division
    Oberleutnant Schuekri (Üsteğmen Şükrü)
    Oberleutnant Sirri (Üsteğmen Sırrı)
    Leutnant Sureya (Teğmen Süreyya): Btl.Kdr. II./türk. 73.Inf.Rgt
    Unteroffizier Chewfki (Astsubay Şevki)

    signed, Major ???

    Thanks a lot!

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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 signature can be seen at the bottom of page 2).
    He would go on to command a battlegroup in the African desert where his men captured the British generals Richard O'Connor & Sir Philip Neame and also commanded 116.Panzer-Division in Normandy and around Aachen where he displeased Hitler with his decision to declare Aachen an Open City.
    Post-war he was in charge of a secret department that was responsible for setting up the West German armed forces.
    His entry in Wikipedia covers his career well:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerhard_von_Schwerin

    What I also like about this Soldbuch is that it is the original issue from 1939. It never had a photo placed in it but it was carried by him from day 1 to the end of the war, is full of entries and is in good condition. A lot of Soldbücher to General's can be quite bland and a fair few are replacement issues.

    If anyone has digital copies of the Ehrenblätter for his Rittrekreuz grade awards I would appreciate a copy if possible to add to the Soldbuch files.

    On Ancestry I have been able to find a record of his Baptism and also a record of his marriage to his first wife Herta Kannengiesser in 1925. It is his second wife (of three), Julia Zulich, that is mentioned on page 5 of the Soldbuch.
    And from various online sources I have obtained his card files from WW2, some of which are shown below.

    Yeah... that surprised me when I got my first one... usually i skip through magazines to the things that interest me, with ICM I am pulled to most articles... even if it is way out of my range in interest the layout attracts my eye and I end up reading the article. I am going to hit ebay and try complete my set

    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.

    Did you manage to get all editions? I was late to the game so most were sold out by the time I started looking for them...

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. The unit is Ergänzungskampfgruppe 5 which was a bomber training unit, a sort of battle school - it is this one here based in Barth:

    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.

  9. Where is this item listed? My first gut feeling is that it could be a fake due to the ink being used for the Bonin signature being similar to other faked items but the quality of the image isn't good enough to go beyond a gut feeling.

     

    Likewise I can not find any mention of a Rudolf Lichte as a fighter pilot but that isn't unusual as there must of been hundreds who never left their mark in the history books. There is mention of a Rudolf Lichte on Ancestry as being married in Hannover in 1940 but it doesn't give any date of birth to aid confirmation and has his trade as Arbeiter so I doubt it is the same person.

  10. Considering not just the range of different cap tallies seen here but also the wide variety of fantastic photos posted I am surprised that no-one has thought to publish a book covering these type of photos including photos of the trade badges which is another great photographic record. Considering Schiffer have published books in the past based on sign posts and wedding photos these would make a fantastic photo reference book.
