  1. Hello Andreas! That´s interesting! Thanks a lot! But I stil wonder, what did a man of a railroad-support-bataillon do, to receive such a medal?
  2. Hallo! Interessantes Abzeichen! Es dürfte sich um ein Abzeichen für einen Kühler handeln. Es zeigt das Denkmal der Kraftfahrtruppen. Es wurde 1931 in Potsdam eingeweiht und 1945 zerstört. http://www.denkfried.de/wp/?page_id=16492
  3. Hello! His units were: 12.10.04-18.9.06: Fusilier-Regiment 38, 10th comp. 14.8.-18.9.08: Manoeuvre in Inf.Rgt.154, 5th. comp. 11.-24.5.11: Manoeuvre in Inf.Rgt.154, 4th comp. 14.8.14-10.7.17: Eisenbahn-Hilfs-Bataillon 1, 4th comp. (Railroad-support-bataillon) 11.7.17: Ersatz-Bataillon, Eisenbahn-Rgt.4 13.7.17: I.Ersatz-Bataillon, Eisenbahn-Rgt. 4, 3rd comp. 27.10.17: II.Ersatz-Bataillon, Eisenbahn-Rgt.4, 3rd comp. 10.12.17: Eisenbahn-Betriebs-Kompagnie 83 26.12.17: in Eisenbahn-Betriebs-Kompagnie 83 eingetroffen (arrived) He received Iron Cross 2nd class April 20, 1917 and the turkish Iftikar medal February 23, 1917. The Iftihar Medal was originally written: İftihar Nişanı (Order of Glory). But I think, that is wrong, because as far as I know that medal was only awarded to higher turkish officers. I can´t believe, a simple soldier from a Railroiad-Support-Bataillon did receive such an ordre! In WW1 the following awards were available for military persons: Order of the Mejedie (Order of Osmanieh) Imtiaz Medal Liakat Medal Iron Crescent Could you please show the left side of page 12 (under the stamp)

  5. Hello! here are some german links: http://www.reservistenkrugsammler.de/ http://www.reservistenkrug.de/allgemeines.html
  6. Hello! Here I have a funny, but also a sad photo. Note the bandage around his head. Let´s hope, it was harmless.
  7. I vote for "Erdmenger"? The "ni" will be an "m" There were a lot in Germany! https://www.kartezumnamen.eu/index.php?sur=Erdmenger&s=Suchen and 54 in the casualty lists: http://des.genealogy.net/eingabe-verlustlisten/search/index
  8. Hmm, there is no name Erdnienger in Germany: https://www.kartezumnamen.eu/index.php?sur=Erdnienger&s=Suchen What about Riedinger?
  9. Hello! You´re right. BA X is Tenth army corps (Hannover). The green cockade is wrong, that´s a saxon one. Are you sure with the name? I´ve never heard a german name like that
  10. Hello Sandro! He recieved it April 5, 1917: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_von_Kneußl#Auszeichnungen
  11. Hello! Kärnten 1918 1919? Some german units were in Kärntnen in the Freikorps era. But did theystil wear spiked helmet?
  12. Hello! A nice tunic! Thanks for showing! Until july 1915 the Train-formatzions had the number of the Train-Bataillon upon the shoulder straps (Garde and 1-21 and 3 bavarians). Since July 21, 1915 they had to wear the numbers of the division. Since April 21, 1917 the unites recieved their own numbers. So here we have a Train column of the 89th Inf.Div. (until summer 1915), or if the tunic is from after april 1917 a Train column N°89. A Train-column with that number could be a supply column, supply park, depot supply column, remount depot, field bakery column, field butchery column or equal unizs of the lines of communication
  13. Hello! The rank Generaloberst was introduced in 1854. From 1854-1911 he had three pips. A Generaloberst mit dem Rang als Generalfeldmarschall had three pips and crossed fieldmarshall´s batons. Since 1911 a Generaloberst mit dem Rang eines Generaleldmarschalls had four pips. They served in the inner circle of the kings or of the Kaiser. Mostly they were noble, because there was a prussian tradition, that noble officers couldn´t became a Feldmarshall! But this tradition ended in 1871... As far as I know, they didn´t wear a fieldmarshall´s baton. Even Kaiser Wilhelm I wore these shoulder boards (3 pips and crossed batons)!
  14. Hello Demir! Thanks a lot. That's why I asked, because you told me that according to my star...
  15. That's an argument... I think both stars are the same. Are there any differences between war and postwar stars?
  16. Hello Andreas! Thanks a lot! What makes you sure with the date please?
  17. Hello Paul! It´s a turkish one. But I´m not sure, if it´s a WW1 or a post-war production. Here is my one (I´ve been told, it´s a post-war issue):
  18. That sounds great! Again congrats to the Krug! So it will be clear, that it´s an original one!
  19. A friend of mine wrote: the lid and pushers do not fit at all to a jug of the Bavarian infantry from this time. The coat of arms on the pusher is a rather washed-out Bavarian state coat of arms, on which, however, the royal crown is missing. Also the pictures look to me like the pictures, which I know from - quite well made - repro jugs from the 70s and 80s. Even if Ludwig II. today has a "fairytale-like" meaning, one would have attached in this time only a portrait of the current ruler as a ground picture. I therefore find it strange that the jug from 1899 shows a picture of Ludwig II. A portrait of Prince Regent Luitpold would actually belong there. The mentally ill Otto I would probably not have been depicted. And the Prince Regent was already quite admired and transfigured at that time. Chris should try to find out whether the name and the regiment are painted on or printed on. If they were painted on, the piece could possibly be real, but it would certainly have had a new lid at some point. A jug of the Infantry Body Regiment would also express the pride of having served in that particular regiment through a special illustration and not through a standard illustration that would fit any infantry regiment. But you can only say that with ultimate consistency once you have held the good piece in your hand. 180 € are a bit too expensive for that, such a repro jug is usually traded between 50 and 100 € today. The page "Reservistenkrugsammler.de" is good, because the texts and pictures are written by Wolfgang Gult, who is known to me as THE expert and reservist jug collector from the Gesellschaft für Heereskunde Did you ask Wolfgang Gult?
