  1. Gentlemen, does anyone of you have an idea of what this is? Well it is clear what it is saying, but I havent any clue where this insignia was mounted to, maybe a coach? The measurements are 15 x 9 cm. Your comments are welcome!
  2. A nice old painting showing a soldier from the Duchy of Brunswick with the long services medal bar for 10 year of active service for ncos. I hope you like as much as I do!
  3. I searched for any article here on the life saving medal from the duchy of Brunswick, but didn't found any post. Well for me this is one of the most beautyfull medals that is. First of all it is awarded for the most noble cause, for saving a life of an other human being. The medal was founded on 25th of april 1836 by Duke Wilhelm on his 30. birthday. (many orders or decorations are founded / and or awarded on the birthdays of duke Wilhelm) Total there are 129 awards in the history of the Duchy of Brunswick, last one was in August 1918 to a soldier. The recipients started from being 16 years old, no awards given to any females. Funny thing is, that this decoration could have been awarded for rescuing the goods and property of strangers. So if a house burned and one guy saved the belongings of another guy, he might have the chance to get this medal. As far as I am aware this was never the case. Nearly every award was given to people who saved other people from drowning. Every story of these 129 decorations would be worth telling, maybe someday there will be a book on this topic. The medal shown here once belonged to my collection, I sold it 26 years ago and still regret it. Here you see the backside of that medal on a single medal bar. Funny thing is, that on most every medal bar, where you can find the life saving medal, this medal is mounted with the back side to be seen. Showing the Nike - the Greek Goddess of victory - holding a twig of a palm in her hand and stepping on a orge from the see or a lindworm. Here is the front side of the life saving medal, showing the W for Wilhelm on crowned plate and surrounded by flags and two lions. The date of the foundation is shown in latin capitels. The medal is made of silver and at least four jewellers produced them during the history of the duchy of Brunswick. I really think that collecting life saving medals would be a nice collection. So enjoy this beautyfull medal shown here.
  4. Guys, Thought these may be of use to anyone with a specific interest in the BW. It lists actions, personalities and pictures some of the fallen. Jock
  5. Good morning again gents! I just received this ribbon bar, and I'm wondering if someone can help me identify the third ribbon please? I know the first is for the EK2, I believe the second is for the Braunschweig KVKII, I'm not sure what the third is for. Thanks in advance!
  6. Here are scans of a ribbon bar I have had for a while now. Comprised of German, Austrian, Turkish and possibly Italian or Hungarian awards. The bearer was a holder of the Iron Cross 2nd Class 1939. But there are no indications of KVK X, or Russian Front ribbons, which, could have been awarded and displayed through tunic button holes. This ribbon bar was possibly made around 1934. The wiederholungsspange could have been added post 1939, as there are no 1938 commemorative ribbons present, which indicate to me that this guy didn't see the need for additional honours. This I think is an officers ribbon bar, but does not have the usual wreath device on the Austrian bravery medal. There is no reliability clasp on the Brunswick medal, which could have meant he didn't have a very active front line service in WWI, yet was awarded the Prussian life saving medal. Award for the Eiserner Halbmund 2nd from the end. And what I think could be a Hungarian award on the end? Any comments on this one would be appreciated.
  7. Here is an interesting ribbon bar dated to around 1939 to an officer with 12 years service. The order of the ribbons is wrong, with the KVK X being forced into 4th place by the three WWI decorations for the Iron Cross 2nd Class, Brunswick Military Service Cross and the Austrian military merit cross. The piece has been period repaired at some point with a silver service eagle (none matching) being pushed through the backing cloth. The original eagle would have been the silver version of more impressive type of eagle, as seen on here in gold. 1938 Hungarian commemorative medal with swords on the end. A nice piece!!
  8. I wondered if anyone has the above book by Albrecht Reinecke, I have a Wehrpass to Wilhelm Schmidt who was in the regiments 6th Battery as commissioned Sergeant, he earned the EK1 and Brunswick 1st class, could you confirm if he has a mention, thanks, Paul
  9. Thought it would be nice to share a few of my Braunschweig Infantry Regiment 92 photos 1870-1940s, please share any you have........Photos/images copyright © Paul Biddle collection.
  10. This has been discussed on another forum as a bad copy, however the design is in "Bowman" volume 1, is the Bowman design an excepted "type" cheers, Paul
  11. I remember that years ago, on WAF, Rick had a thread "It's not easy being green" on a ribbon bar with a plain green ribbon. The problem was that plain green can stand for a number of awards, from Brunswick Life Saving Medal, to Persian Sun and Lion Order and Swedish Vasa Order. Now I have a similar lapel bow with a green award in last place:
  12. Attempting to restrain myself from posting everything from this past weekend's Traveling Museum get together. In a lovely red case with a big gold crown and a nifty little fitted door inside that opened to reveal the ribbon tucked inside was THIS-- A BrH2aX set (awarded as a set together) --Brunswick House Order of Henry The Lion-Commander 1st Class with Swords! A final reckoning will await Dave getting the promised Rolls and transcribing them, so let's just say... a Pour le Merite's ho hum by comparison. Mind you, I find the painted peacock feathers just that over-the-top on whaat would otherwise be in the running for most beautiful Order eveer. Enjoy--glad it could be shared with you all.(Epson! Epson! Epson!)
  13. Here is a spectacularly beautiful Brunswicker's medal bar from yesterday's Traveling Museum gathering here at the Schloss. BrK on combatant ribbon, BrH4, REK3X, BMO5. Say WHAT? Uhhhh, something's missing... rather obviously. Something else is missing less obviously so. I know whose this bar was... even though it's on dark blue backing!
  14. Been on my bucket list for a while.....Soldbuch and Militair-Pass and Citation to Unteroffizier Julius Karl Johannes Wilhelm Laßmann of Braunschweigischen Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 92, EK2 1870 confirmed by Glenn, much research to do….hope you like it…….. Also any help on signatures or what clasps Lassmann may have got would be appreciated, cheers, Paul
  15. Hi I only have one set of Imperial German medals to contribute. I believe the second medal is the Brunswick War Merit cross? Patrick
  16. Will some of you please post photos of soldiers from either of the two regiments?
  17. Hey there guys, I was looking for some opinions on this piece. I understand that original award pieces are made from silvered iron, are magnetic and have flat prongs that fold towards the middle. This one I am not sure of the material but it is not magnetic and has round prongs that fold towards the middle. Is this a later model private purchase wearers copy or a complete fake? Please feel free to post other examples.
  18. Hello People, Is this one real pré-1918 Brunswick, War Merit Cross First Class? Regards, William Schmidt
  19. From Rick on the island of no internet access......and lost toys Cut To The Bone... "This one came to the house in October to visit. There are a number of reasons why one sometimes encounters stripped medal bars. The GOOD reason would have been that the original recipients' next of kin dutifully returned all the awards that were required to be legally sent back and....kept whatever was left. One BAD reason is that the bar was neglected and fell victim to damp...or the nibbling of small rodents and was "harvested". Another VERY BAD reason all too often involves "collectors" (actually jackals) ripping things apart because they want either single pieces or to sell items for a higher price. There is no way to tell which THIS medal bar was ...until researching it. The ribbons are in decent condition. 1. Some grade of Brunswick House Order. From the position of the 'ghost' ring, probably a merit cross in either gold or silver...either of which could have had swords from 1870 or 1866. 2. A Brunswick long service award. From the rest of the bar- almost certainly an officers' 25 year cross, rather than the NCO's version. 3. Prussian EK2 (1870) on non-combatant ribbon. THIS one bears a "nub" on top of the upper arms ' edge which my late guru (George Seymour) always associated mainly with the Brunswick groups. For some reason this one does not have the jump ring sodered to that "Brunswick nub". the small ring , instead, is fore-and-aft through a hole (which appears made that way) through the flat rim of the upper arm. 4. Prussian Crown order ribbon.....or other things? Note the "ghost ring". 5. A dark green ribbon. Hmmmmmmmm.......In another bar with other awards any number of interesting things could have been possible. BUT, on a Brunswick medal bar, the insanely RARE Brunswick Lifesaving Medal (always found in such precedence=sigh=) is not only logical...but the original suspension and "bar" are still there! The medal was twisted off like a coin! ARGHHH!!!!!! 6. The 1870/71 war medal. Ribbon for combatants and (illogically) regular stay-at-homes. The medal present, which is nickled brass- NOT the original steel, would indicate a stay-at-home who never crossed the frontier. So we have a non-combatant Brunswicker, vet. of 1870/71. That narrows it down phenominally...once every holder of the noncom. EK2 is reviewed and checked (twice) from the 1877 orders list supplement. There were only 4,097 awarded." (stay tuned-next installment tonight-please refrain from comments until I finish the next 3 pages-Ta!)
