Austrian WWI ring

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the reply. What about the hat? Is it also of the enlisted variety?

What would the colour of his collar have been if he was connected with the military postal service (as legend went in the family)?

It looks like a brass Kokarde with a cutout FJ, an EM one. The officers' were bullion.

I see... Everything seems to indicate a lower rank. Thanks again.

If I dig some more details I will post them here.

scratching my head to remember, but postal (as I recall) would have been a red wine color (at least it was with the Hungarain side??)

Thanks Hunyadi, hence his collar must have looked like this.

May I ask again for your help to identify the details (rank and decoration)?

Hello,

it's the 1898 Jubilee Medal for the Armed Forces (the one-colour ribbon means that it was the red one).

Best wishes,

Elmar Lang

Hi,

You may be right, but I can't see the any braid extending up the front of the collar, so that is why I said Zugsfuhrer.

Her name was Louise Gürtesch (born Gellner).

I would like to dig up this old thread and ask you what decorations would this man have received during his service which lasted until about WWI (beginning or end - not clear). Based on the photo, it was already established that he received the 1898 Jubilee Medal for the Armed Forces. Given the length of his service, I would suspect that he also received the 1908 Jubileum Cross. Is this supposition reasonable? Anything else, like a long service decoration or something similar?

Thanks in advance for your help
