  1. Here's a nice worn tunic in horizon blue for a general de brigade.
  2. Does anyone have any detailed background on the Allied Subjects' Medal, to include listing of recipients?
  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. Here we have an ordensspange belonging to a pre-war cavalry officer of 2. Hannoversche Dragoner-Regiment, Nr. 16. The group includes: Iron Cross II Class Hamburg Cross 1912 General Honour Decoration 1813-1913 Regiment Centenary Medal 1914-1918 Regiment Medal Military Merit Cross III Class (Austria) Little is known about the recipient, other than that he was from Hamburg (the bar carries a makers label from Hamburg), was a pre-war serving soldier, and survived until at least the early 1920s. Below is a brief history of the Regiment, as well as a biography of their service history during the Great War. 2. Hannoversche Dragoner-Regiment, Nr. 16: 1813-1913 The Regiment was formed in 1813 during the Napoleonic Wars, and fought at Waterloo in 1815. As a British territory, it served under the Union Flag, and named The Prince Regents Hussars. Later converting to a Dragoon Regiment (Kron Prinz), they fought Prussia during the 1866 War, losing after Langensalza. After Hanovers incorporation into the German Empire they adopted the title 2. Hannoversche Dragoner-Regiment, Nr. 16. They later served in the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian War. Luneburg: The location of the Regiments HQ. 2. Hannoversche Dragoner-Regiment, Nr. 16: 1914-1919 1914-1916: Flanders & Russian Poland With the outbreak of the First World War and mobilization, a sixth squadron was set up in the regiment, and the Regiment was divided into two semi-regiments (1st, 3rd and 5th squadron, 2nd, 4th and 6th squadron). These were assigned to the 17th and 18th Divisions as divisional cavalry. The units crossed the Belgian border near Liège in the Xth Army Corps and participated in the advance through Northern France. After the withdrawal from the Marne in November 1914, the 1st half-regiment was transferred to the Eastern Front to Russian Poland, where it remained until the end of 1915. In the West, the second half-regiment provided railway and canal protection until 1916. 2. Hannoversche Dragoner-Regiment, Nr. 16, possibly during the Great War 1916: France & Romania After the return of the 1st half-regiment from the East, the regiment was reunited and used for field work in the occupied territories of France. Then the Regimentverband was dissolved again and distributed the individual squadrons to various battlefields, where they were dismounted and used as infantry or as mounted rear-area security. The 6th squadron took part in the campaign in Romania in late 1916. The Military Merit Cross III Class was possibly issued at this time, as in December 1916 Franz Joseph authorised crossed swords to be worn on the ribbon. In January 1919, the regiment returned to Luneburg in an escadron manner, was demobilized and dissolved until 15 March 1919. 2. Hannoversche Dragoner-Regiment, Nr. 16: 1919-1939 Two Squadrons under Bothmer were re-formed into Freikorps von Hndenburg on 8th March 1919, and operated mainly in Pomerania, and in March 1920 in Hanover during the Kapp Putsch. Freikorps von Hindenburg consisted of: 25 officers, 167 Unteroffizierre, 573 men, 139 horses and 10 vehicles 1 Sturmbtl., die Eskadron von Bothmer, 3 Inf.-Komp., 1 MG-Komp., 1 MW-Komp., 1 Schwadron, 1 Nachrichtenzug, 1 Rekrutendepot. On March 10 1920 Eskadron von Bothmer were recieved by von Hindenburg on celebrating the units first anniversary. In June 1921 Eskadron von Bothmer had been engaged in fighting in Obersilesia. On 1 September 1921 the two squadrons of Eskadron von Bothmer disbanded and were incorporated into the Reichswehr. 4th Squadron joined 13th (Prussian) Cavalry Regiment in Luner, 3rd Squadron continuing the tradition of 2 Hanover Dragoon Regiment Nr. 16. 13th Cavalry regiment was dissolved in 1939; its squadrons sent to other cavalry reconnaissance units. Unveiling the 2. Hanoverian Dragoon Regiment Nr. 16 memorial, 17 September 1922 I hope you enjoyed this little piece & feel free to give me any feedback below!

    French Generals

    Is there a reference on the internet that gives bios of French Generals in ww1? What about books?
  6. Here's a nice horizon blue "bonnet de police" or "calot" for a general de brigade. These are fairly rare and I'd love to see other Collector's general's headgear. I love French uniforms and enjoy collecting generals items.

    French Pilot NCO

    Here's a nice but well used tunic for an NCO pilot from WW1. The unofficial squadron(?) badge it silvered brass and had a pin at one time but the catch is still present. The insignia is nice quality, NCO pilot collar insignia, front like service stripes, and NCO lace. The buttons are aviation branch. There are holes and the collar, cuffs, and skirt have lots of wear and some holes. Overall it looks good to me (on a side note, why do uploads from iPhone always post all photos landscape? Can moderator correct?)
  10. Doing some research for a French forum friend, regarding Carlos Boyeldieu d'Auvigny who was in 3e Régiment étranger d'infanterie . What is he doing in a Polish uniform with a German bajo? Any help appreciated. cheers |<ris

    French ID tag help

    Hello, I need a bit of help with this French ID tag named to Jules Paulian, I checked the Memoire des Hommes site and found a man named Jules Evariste Paulian who was killed in Dieuze, 20/8/14. The tag doesn’t show a middle name but other points appear to fit according to the casualty paperwork for JE Paulian: Class 1907 Recruitment area Nice Number 30 Do you think it's definite, unlikely or a definite maybe that Jules Paulian and Jules Evariste Paulian are the same person? Thanks for any help. Tony
  12. I got this medal from a friend but don't know anything about it. I think it's German or at least German made though I don't know it's name or even why it's was awarded. Any one know?
  13. Here's an interesting horizon blue M13 pattern tunic for an aviation NCO

    French badge

    Can anyone tell me what unit this badge represents? the pin is broken
  15. I recently started searching photographs in an attempt to see if I could find photos of the Croix de Guerre being worn with the palms overlapping on the ribbon. I think this was done on occasion by those either not wanting a long ribbon or those who had a very large amount of palms. Here are a few. I didn't think to save examples of all. Here's another of Charles Nungesser wearing a large number of Palms overlapping on the ribbon. Here's a CdG with 8 palms I've had for years. It's similarly arranged with the palms overlapping.

  20. Hi I am wondering if anyone can help out on this. After the Easter Rising in Dublin 1916. Fourteen men where shot at dawn in Kilmainham Goal from the 3rd of May till the 12th of May. Now here is the question, I know of two of them where shot sitting down, and with the lack of a post for the remainder to be tied to, would they all have been shot sitting on a crate or chair. any help with this would be great
  21. A seaonal post with the anniversary of these tomorrow. Sadly it is empty but they could come with tobacco and cigarettes and a pipe and lighter, a card or other versions with sweets for non smokers and spices for others were produced. Showing mine with a period Xmas card and a mini Mons star medal trio.
  22. Guys, Just got this pair. Named to: 8685 WKR. M.G.Hill. Q.M.A.A.C. These were in the scrap silver again! Any idea what unit and rank that is? Jock
  23. Just picked this up. Sewn around a period magazine page as a backing. These embroideries of regimental/corps insignia were typically made in hospitals by convalescing wounded soldiers. The embroiderer here had quite a skill !!
  24. In all the nations at war, strong patriotic sentiments were promoted to fund the war. In this perspective, most governments sold War Bonds. But also the national Red Cross organizations and Christian or other welfare institutes were keen to collect money to fund their care for soldiers, sailors and civilians. This was done by the sale of postcards, street or house-to-house collections, fund raising manifestations etc. In Germany, a particular home front form of fundraising was called KRIEGSNAGELUNG, which is best translated as: Nails for the War. Participants could buy (symbolical) a nail which was hammered into an object, generally this was made of (German) oak and took the shape of an Iron Cross, a Warrior, a Shield with a crest or a Column. The benefits were funding the Kriegsopferwerk, the care for the German victims of war such as invalids, casualties and their families. Interesting to note, it that also communities of Germans and Austrians in the USA put up similar projects; an Iron Cross was nailed in San Francisco and a Shield with German Eagle in Baltimore. In Kiel (where at the well-known Germania Werft many U-Boats were built) the Vaterländische Frauen-Verein (Patriotic Women’s Society) and the Red Cross put up a huge wooden U-Boat to be “nailed”, starting from 22 September 1915. Obviously, spenders received a small paper scroll (13 x 17 cm), an Urkunde, to certificate their patriotism. For those of you who understand German, this may be an interesting article: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kriegsnagelungen From my collection, the Kiel document and a postcard of the U-Boat
