  1. Here is my best .... More details here... http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/49145-bavarian-gold-bravery-medal-group/?hl=riethmann#entry452231
  2. One should think that general offices would know the regulations ........ or perhaps Herr Generalleutnant is making a fashion statement? Best wishes, Sandro
  3. Here we have an ordensspange consisting of official, and less official, medals which were awarded to a Bavarian soldier of Königlich Bayerische 12. Infanterie-Regiment Prinz Arnulf. It consists of: * Iron Cross II Class * 1914-1918 Hindenburg Medal * 1814-1914 12 Royal Bavarian Infantry Regiment Medal * 1813-1913 Major v. Lutzow Medal The reverse: Other than being a Bavarian, all that can be deduced by this medal group is that he was a pre-war serving soldier (c.1913) who survived until at least 1933. Interestingly, the medal ribbons for the latter two medals are "borrowed" from other veteran associations medals, making the group a little unique. Below I have included a photo of the 1813-1913 Major v. Lutzow Medal for closer examination. Below is a photo of the 1814-1914 12 Royal Bavarian Infantry Regiment Medal for closer examination. 12 Royal Bavarian Infantry Regiment:1814-1914 The Regiment formed in Wurzburg in 1814 and fought during the 1815 Campaign against France. During the 1866 War Bavaria famously sided with Austria, losing to Prussia, later fighting alongside Prussia during the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian War. Kaisheim Guard Command, 1913 12 Royal Bavarian Infantry Regiment: 1914-1918 The Regiment served exclusively on the Western Front during the Great War. More detail can be read at: Königlich Bayerisches 12. Infanterie-Regiment „Prinz Arnulf“ – Wikipedia 12 Royal Bavarian Infantry Regiment: 1919-1921 Following the Armistice, remnants of the regiment returned to Bavaria (only 193 of the 3,400 original men of the regiment survived). The regiment was demobilised at Neu-Ulm, however, elements joined the Graf Security Battalion of the Freikorps on n1 March 1919. It comprised of four companies, and from May included an additional MG company. The former regimental staff from Königlich Bayerische 12. Infanterie-Regiment Prinz Arnulf formed the staff of Freikorps Wolf in April 1919. The rest of the formation formed in June, alongside 1 Battalion, Reichswehr-Infanterie-Regiment 43. In August 1921 11 Company, 19 (Bavaran) Infantry Regiment took over Königlich Bayerische 12. Infanterie-Regiment Prinz Arnulf. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave any feedback!
  4. Hi all, I have here a couple of Bavarian medal groups here to show. I imagine that the first group was a pre-war professional who was promoted through the ranks (judging by the MMO). The second a pre-war professional NCO (??). Any clarification is always appreciated The first includes the MMO IV Class, EKII, Hanseatic Cross (Hamburg), & the IX Years Service Medal. The second group includes the Military Merit Cross II Class (with swords), EKII, Hindenburg Medal, IX Years Service Medal, 1905 Jubilee Medal, & the XXIV Years Service Medal. I’ll post some more from Bavaria anon, as well as more from my collection (if you would be interested in having a peek?!). Take care everyone & stay safe!
  5. Dear forumites I would like to show you a “Leiber” (K.B. Inf. Leib-Regt) Officer spiked helmet, purchased some years ago, with a crowned chypher “P” (Herzog/ducal crown https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herzogskrone or Landgraf/count crown https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landgrafenkrone https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Can the original wearer of this spiked helmet be researched? I guess there weren’t many officers with such high aristocratic title in that regiment... I noticed some notable aristocratic names beginning with P in that regiment, but I’m not so sure. Thank you in advance for your valuable comments and inputs. Best regards, Claudio
  6. Dear forumites, My brother lately acquired a very nice high officer's portrait in oil colours under glass (therefore the reflection on the picture, sorry!). which still has the original frame. As you can see this high officer is wearing a EK1 1914 and a medal bar composed by the following orders and medals: Kingdom of Bavaria, BMVO3 mit Krone und Schwerter Kingdom of Prussia, EK2 1914 KuK Austria-Hungary (?), goldene Tapferkeitsmedaille (?) Free City of Hamburg (?), Hanseatenkreuz Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, war cross 2nd class Kingdom of Saxony, AO1X Kingdom of Bavaria, DA 25 Jahre Kingdom of Prussia, Zentenarmedaille KuK Austria-Hungary, MVK3 Is an identification of this highly decorated officer possible? Thank you in advance for your most appreciated inputs and comments. Cordially, Claudio
  7. Hello Gentlemen, Im looking for infos about this condecoration (Institution, rules) Can Anyone help me? Thx in advance Alexandre
  8. How many variations of this are there? Does anyone have a real gold one? Older models? Copies and Spangenstucke etc also welcomre on the thread. Thanks Chris
  9. Hello all, today i got this nice 5 place ribbon bar - its my frst with a DSWA Medal Greetings Stefan
  10. Hey Guys, Just a quick and hopefully and easy one. Did award documents accompany the Bavarian MVK medals when they were given out? If so would anybody be able to post one or two so I can have a look. Thanks in advance. Phil
  11. I assume this is a Bavarian Bravery? The guy seems to have been "Hofmann" (one F) living in Friedrich Strasse in München...
  12. Hello all, Im looking for some help. I try to restore this medal bar. 1: Eisernes Kreuz 2: MVK am Beamtenband (which class?) 3: Hindenburg Kreuz 4: Jubiläumsmedalle für die Armee 1905 5: Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung (which one?) 6: Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung (which one?)
  13. Today I want to present another brave aviation man. This time the bavarian Uffz Thomas Schaller. * 20.10.1895 Regnitzlosau 05.01.1917 FEA 1b versetzt 30.01.1917 Beobachterschule 1 versetzt 26.02.1917 FEA 1b versetzt 01.03.1917 Schutzstaffel 29b Parkzug 10.03.1917 AFP A - Schutzstaffel 29b versetzt 06.09.1917 Verwundet im Luftkampf - Durchschuss rechte Hand und linke Schulter ins Lazarett 15.09.1917 AFP 4 versetzt 05.01.1918 Reserve Lazarett Lübeck 17.08.1918 FEA 1b versetzt 18.08.1918 bayer.

Klasse mit Schwertern 18.10.1918 bayer. Fliegerschützenabzeichen First picture shows Schaller (far right) with Schlachtstaffel 29b. Second picture with his wife. Taken after the award of the air gunnar badge. And the highlight is this portrait of him wearing the bavarian air gunnar badge. I never seen another picture of an Maybauer bavarian air gunnar in wear. Some of you may know this picture. Even he already was awarded the IC I, he doesn't wear the cross on this picture.
  14. A couple of years ago I acquired a few docs and photos belonging to a Dr Otto Finkenauer of Bavarian IR18. He was holder of the Militar Sanitats Orden 2nd Class and was killed on the 6th of June 1917 during the preliminary bombardment to the attack on the Messines Ridge on the 7th, when a direct hit demolished a bunker being used by the medical team killing him and several others. Here is a picture of Otto and the demolished bunker. The following day another resident from Rockenhausen died, also at Messines, Fritz Martin, holder of the Silver Bravery Medal and MVK1. The reason I know this is that the newspaper entries announcing their deaths appeared on the same page side by side and survived with this small collection. Two very brave men from the same town. Best regards Pete
  15. As you get older I notice that the Christmas presents get less, so I bought myself one!!! I was lucky enough to get this collection of docs to eventual Feldwebel Johann Winkler. He served in the Alpenkorps and was wounded on the 10th of June 1916 near Douaumont. Firstly an Alpenkorps EK2 Certificate, I have never seen one like this before, signed by Krafft von Dellmensingen. Regards Pete
  16. A few weeks ago I became aware that there was a Bavarian "Leiberring" on the market, but put it from my mind as I was sure I had no chance of getting it. But the world is small indeed, there were apparently 3-4 guys after it, and it has landed up in the hands of a good friend... I managed to get it to study... and hope to be able to work a trade soon...
  17. Today I was lucky enough to complete the set... A Mannschafts Tschako which belonged to Karl Hesselbach. It is in such good shape because he was only a Jäger for 2 months before being badly enough wounded that he never saw the front again. A bullet wound to the thigh on the 30th October 1916 in Romania. He joined the 2nd Reserve Jäger battalion after they were pulled out of the fighting at verdun. The Battalions had suffered heavy losses and needed new men and material....
  18. Dear forumites, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konrad_Krafft_von_Dellmensingen https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konrad_Krafft_von_Dellmensingen I'd like to show some pictures I have taken at the the Festung Tilly in Ingolstadt (Bayerisches Armeemuseum https://www.armeemuseum.de/de/). Very interesting and complete group of a Bavarian WWI general... lots of interesting information about his career, family and insights into the struggle for power within the Oberkommando des Heeres and its military and strategic implications. I would warmly suggest a visit at the castle of Ingolstadt. Right now there's still a great exhibition about "Napoleon and Bayern"... well done, with a lot of historical insights and also objects of historically very important provenance (Napoleon, his wife Josephine, of the Wittelsbacher Dynasty, etc...). Unfortunately the exhibition finishes in October (now). Enjoy the pictures. ciao, Claudio
  19. Recently this nice group portrait came in (with message in steno), sent in 1911 from the Military Training Grounds near Zeithain in Sachsen. Does any one know which Regiments? Thanks for your help!
  20. In 1920 the Bavarian Military school closed it doors for the final time. Many future officers had passed through its doors.....
