  1. Hi everybody, Here is my new ribbon bar from an Officer of the Jäger Btn Nr. 13. I showit here with EK1, RK and paar of Oblt Shoulderboards. This ribbon bar come with the trapezoidal medal bar (without medals). I have found only two names (maybe more) of officers who had the same combo on the ribbon bar : Lt Paul Hederich who died in 1916 Oblt Georg Graf Vitzthum von Eckstädt who died in 1945. Christophe and now with trapezoidal medal bar
  2. Hi everybody, I would like to show you my collection of Saxon medals, ribbon bars and pieces of uniform. I begin with ribbon bars : First one is a ribbon bar of Rittmeister Reinhardt Westrem zu Gutacker Christophe
  3. Hi everybody, i'm looking for informations about this officer. On the photo we can find the SV3X, EK2 and campaign medal for the Franco-Prussian War. He probably wore the Albert knight cross but it was hidden I have no information about Saxon officer before 1900. Thanks for your help Christophe
  4. Hello everybody I would like to show you a great collection of one of my friend who give me authorisation to show his collection of the "Schützen Regiment Nr. 108". He is still interested by items from this unit. Don't hesitate to pm me and then I will give him information. Enjoy Christophe
  5. Hi everybody, Here is a very nice card photo of Leutnant Franz Büchner showing his new Pour le Mérite, his ribbon bar, the iron cross 1st class and the pilot badge. Franz Büchner was born in 1898, he was enlisted in the IR 106 as a volounteer in september 1914. Wounded in 1916 he joined the air service after recovery. He then became a pilot in March 1917. With a lot of victories, he was put at the head of the Jasta 13. His first victory was on August 17, 1917, but the confirmation of the victory came two months after, so the second plane he shot down was confirmed first (October15, 1917). For that he received one month later the Ehrenbecher for the first victory. If someone wants to know more about this officer, Neal O’Connor has written small story in the third volume of the Aviation awards of the Imperial Germany pp. 145-147. Büchner received the following awards and badge. Knight cross of St Henry : 07.10.1918 Knight cross 2nd class with X of Merit order of Saxe : date unknown Knight cross 2nd class with X of Albert order of Saxe : 26.04.1916 Iron cross 2nd class : date unknown Knight cross with X of House Order of Hohenzollern : 20.08.1918 Pour le Mérite : 25.10.1918 Iron cross 1st class : date unknown Pilot badge : September 1916 Ehrenbecher : November 1917 If someone has got more info about him, thanks for sharing them with us. Christophe
  6. Hello all, I'm been researching my great grandfather known to us as Herbert Müller. He is listed as Oberst (retired) Christian Herbert Müller on his wife's death certificate. He was the Commander of The 2nd royal Saxon. Hussar Regiment No. 19 "Crown Prince Wilhelm of the German Empire and Prussia", from 1915 until their disbandment in 1919. There is a photo of him in the a publication celebrating the Regiment's 125 year anniversary here https://digital.slub-dresden.de/werkansicht/dlf/368539/19/0/#. We have copies of several of the photos in this commemorative book, as well as some other photos of him in military dress. Since finding this book online, I have been unable to find any other details or further information on him. I was hoping someone here might be able to help me or possibly even have some record relating to his war service? Any assistance would be hugely appreciated. Cheers, Irene
  7. Dear friends, here is a medal bar that I think is a bit unusual, I'm having hard time figuring out the criteria of such a combination and origin. It features a centenary medal, a service medal from Saxony Kingdom, no other Saxony awards but a Saxe-Weimar order of white falcon. Please share your thought. Sorry for the fuzzy picture, I will take more photo when I have the chance.
  8. Hello, here is another nice photo of Saxon Hauptmann Arnold Frölich He received during the woar both iron crosses, Beobachter Abz, SA3aX (13 Arpil 1916) and the crown to the SA3aX (18 January 1917). This photo has been taken in October 1916. Christophe

Indeed, I have found that only one man that have this combo (SH3, SV3aX, SA3aXKr, EK2, SMK). The officer : Major Otto Schmidt from IR 134.

  13. Hi everybody, Here is another very rare ribbon bar I have received recently. The owner of this bar is Oberst Bernhard von Süßmilch gen. von Hörnig (1867-1923). He served the most part of the WW1 at the head of the IR 139. He received the following orders and medals : SH2b : 2.12.1917 SH3 : 15.10.1914 SV3aX : 4.08.1916 SA3X : 29.08.1916 X zu SA3a : 9.10.1914 SA3a : 18.05.1909 SDA : 25.03.1911 Kr zu PRAO4 : 13.07.1911 PRAO4 : 15.09.1903 PKO3 : 10.09.1912 EK2 : 16.09.1914 EK1 : 14.10.1914 OH3Kr : 19.12.1906 ChDM : no date. PJR : 25.07.1913 PJE : 23.09.1905 VAs : 1918 Christophe
  14. Hi everybody, Recently I was lucky enough to get this very nice mini chain which belonged to Leutnant der Reserve Walter Dittrich. It is composed by SA3bX, SHMg, SHMs, EK2. Of course the rarity is about the SHMg. Only 150 were awarded during the Great War and only three men received it as flyer. He received the following orders : SA3bX, ? probably at the end of 1918 or after. SHMg, 24 juillet 1917, SHMs, 31 octobre 1916, EK2, 14 janvier 1916, EK1, ? Pilot badge, 13 janvier 1916, Ehrenbecher, 1917 Wound badge, probably silver or gold, 1918. Here is photo of Dittrich from the following book : Ehrenbuch der Inhaber der Sächsische Goldenen Militär St Heinrichs-Medaille, Dresden, Selbst Verlag, 1936, 264 p. There is a little biography on the O’CONNOR (N.W.), Aviation Awards of Imperial Germany in World War One, vol. 3, The Kingdom of Saxony, Princeton, New Jersey, 1993, 279 p. As you can see, he has chosen to wear the Albert Order before the SHMg. I have in my collection a small ribbon bar which have the same combo (both SH ribbons and after the SA3 ribbon. I have no idea if it is from the same man or not. I can only imagine. I think about the ribbon bar that this one the first ribbon is for the knight cross of St Henry and after the SHMs. That's why both ribbons are ahead the SA ribbon. Christophe
  15. Hi everyone! What do you all think of the authenticity of this bar? http://www.ebay.de/itm/322146876603?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Jason
  16. Hello all, I am posting here today in the hopes that you can help me identify this man. As far as I can tell he is from a Saxon duchy (maybe Sachsen-Meiningen?). He saw service in 1866, 1870 and then again in 1914. His bar shows: 1870 EK2 / WHS / RAO4 / KO3 / DA / 1870 KDM / 1866 Kreuz / ZM I'm not sure what his topmost neck order is either. I have an idea but I will refrain from posting it so as to avoid influencing others' eyes. Looking forward to hearing your ideas. Thank you in advance for any help. Trevor

  18. Hi everybody, In this topic I have made a lot of research about some Hannovrian medals received by Saxon officiers in XIXth Century. If someone has a medal bar or something to show don't hesitate.
  19. Please take a look at the Dresdner Salonblatt . It included a lot of photographs of high ranking officers (Saxon mainly) in relative usable quality, see attachment. Also some useful background information. Another great strike of the Dresden State-Library! Gruß Stefan
  20. Here is the Major Leopold Gottschalch's big medal bar, one of the best Saxony bars that I have seen. Leopold had HOH3X but for some reason not mounted on this bar, any idea? Some information I have gethered about our guy: Born 22th June 1870 in Dresden, became Royal Saxon Major on 11th July 1913 and commander of the I./ 1. Fußartillerie-Regiment Nr. 12. With the outbreak of WW1 he had RAO4 and Albrechts order Knight 1st class with the crown and got the swords to this award on 10th February 1915. Gottschalch received the HOH3x on May 5, 1917, and Knights Cross of the Military Order of St. Henry on 14th April 1918 as Commander of the Reserve-Fußartillerie-Regiment 12. Anyone got a photo of him or more information?
  21. Hi all, and here the second one. It shows a unknown saxon colonial official with a nice combination of awards: KO4Xw DSWA-Denkm. for fighters SA3bX On the right side (next to his leg) is stamped the year 1908.....So we have to search for someone who had the nice combination of KO4Xw and SA3bX and who served also in Halle/a.S. in 1908! He has to be one of the following candidates: ProvAmtAssistent Bannier Karl DSWA KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 ProvAmtInsp Engst August R. DSWA KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1908 Intendanturreg Kemter Georg DSWA Feldintendantur KrO4xw 1907 SA3bx 1907 ProvAmtAssistent Kießling Karl F.

Seifert who received also KO4Xw and SA3bX who is shown in "Rangliste der Intendanturbeamten für 1914 ". Seifert was born in 1873. So we have 9 candidates in total.I hope that of of them served in Halle/a.S. in 1908 Thanks a lot and best regards Karsten
  22. Meine Herren, attached pic. shows JOHANNES Felix Müller from IR 104 in 1885 as a young Fähnrich at Cassel War school. Sources say, he fell on March 6th 1915 as Oberstleutnant and Cdr.(?) of Ersatz-Regiment-9 (is this Landwehr-Ersatz-Inf.Rgt. 9, then IR 354?) What I´m looking for is his birth-date/place. Maybe someone have a later photo of him Viele Grüße Stefan
