  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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. He was born in 1874, for the moment I have not found his death date. Leutnant : 23.01.1896 Oberleutnant : 11.09.1903 Hauptmann : 21.01.1910 Major : 22.05.1916 He received the follwing medals : SH3 : 13.11.1915 SV3aX : 09.11.1916 Kr zu SA3aX : 19.10.1915 SA3aX : 22.11.1914 EK2 : ? EK1 : ? SMK : 08.05.1916. Here is the ribbon bar and the photo of Major Otto Schmidt (he is the first officer from the right). It take one year to have positive id of the ribbon bar and to find the photo of our man Christophe
  23. 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
  24. 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
