wow.... nice find!!!

Any interesting entries on the battle pages?

... not mine and no battle pages.

It was a simple "Erweiterung zum Militarpass".

If the actual Militarpass would have been part of it, it would have been a super score.

Hello!

The FK Hindenburg was set-up feb., 13th, 1919 in Kolberg to protect the GHQ. It came from the protection-company of the GHQ (Sturm-Btl. 2, 5 and 7). In march it was raised to:

I. Sturmbataillon (later in october it became II./RW-Inf.Rgt.110 in Celle)

II. Garde-Gren.Btl. (from Garde-Gren.Rgt.5 Spandau - it became later in october IV./RW-Inf.Rgt.102 in Kolberg)

Kavallerie-Regiment:

1. (Drag.Rgt.16 Lüneburg)

2. (Jg.z.Pf.Rgt.5 Mülhausen)

3. (Garde-Ulanen-Rgt.2 Berlin)

The badge from FK Hindenburgf was "Collar-oakleaves with an "H"

Leader was Hauptmann Otto

They fought battles in Hannover and became later under command of the Division Münster during the action in the Ruhr-area (where I live...) At the beginning of those fight, they stood between Münster and Lüdinghausen. (By the way, my grandfather served in the FK Wesel, but he left in early 1919)

The Gruppe Division Münster was led by Generalmajor v. Preinitzer

The Untergruppe Hannover was led by Oberst Freiherr v. Ledebur

The II./Res.Inf.Rgt.110 (I don´t know, why it´s called here "Reserve" - source: Darstellungen aus den Nachkriegskämpfen dt. Truppen und Freikorps, vol.9) with the Sturm-Btl. 2,5 and 7 were increased by 4./Res.Art.Rgt.10.

The map is from "Das Buch vom deutschen Freikorps-Kämpfer".

Note: The town south of Münster is called "Lüdinghausen"! The written-down town "Lüdenschd" für "Lüdenscheid is wrong! Lüdenscheid is south of Hagen

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
