  1. Hi Matt! Well, Hans Berr was k.i.a. 6 Apr. 1917, v. Hausen died 15 Jul. 1917 after he was shot down March 16. I couldn´t find a pilot Artur Oertel.
  2. Because there was no-.one in the FAR11 ranklist 1914 and ranklist of honour, it seems he became officer during the war.
  3. Hello David! Yes, thank you! Everything´s all right again. But I´m sorry. I´ve got the regimental histories of 12 and 14, not from 11. Sorry, my fault. The Ranklist of honour has: 1) Captain Müldner v. Mülnheim (4th Garde-Inf.brig.), later Major a.D. 2) Captain Müldner v. Mülnheim (Füs.Rgt.39), later Oberstleutnant a.D.
  4. Hello! Austrians with german naval soldiers. Does the first sitting German wear a Fez? Maybe the photo was taken in the Austrian war harbour Pola https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pula
  5. Hello Mattyboy! You bought it... I saw it too, but I forgot to bet... Nice photo! I wonder about the Bluse! Anyway it looks like postwar, doesn't it? Because of the wound badge it's a late photo And he's got a sweet girl! Here is Prinz Heinrich XXXXI from Reuss
  6. Wow! Great photos!!!! What´s the right shoulder strap? 20? Then it would be bav, 20th Pionier-Comp. from bav. 10th Inf.Div. The left one wears bav. 8th Res.Div. and the right one 21st corps and Heeresgruppe Carl
  7. Oh, that wasn´t a good idea... Showing ebay articles like this in forums will force-up the price... A good idea, if you are the seller...😁
  8. Hi! I assume the medic badge is the collar badge of a "Landsturmpflichtiger Arzt". Photo from our "Feldgrau-Forum":
  9. Hello ArHo! Well, FAR74 was part of 8th Inf.Div. June 12, 1917 they held the sector north-east of Loos. No particular battles, but heavy losses by British attacks. FAR79 was located near Lens. The regimental history mentioned nothing according to a Sturmtrupp. In the back left I see an infantry man with a monogram upon the shoulder straps. Infantry of 8th.ID were: 72, 93 and 153. 93 and 153 had monograms. The regimental histories of 93 and 153 doesn´t mention anything for that date. There were several reccon patrols of the division in summer 1917, but nothing special mentioned for that date.
  10. Hello! Are you talking about my photo? Here is a little bit better scan:
