Just wanted to show you my Edelweiss photo.

And the reverse.

Click on the photo to enlarge.

Kind regards,

Marcin

It would be a lot more fantastic if you could see the Edelweiß better. :) I do like the strap on his simplified tunic, however. :rolleyes:

I think I´m finished with collecting Edelweß. Last week I bought the ultimate one! That is originally that one, worn by the k.u.k. XIV.AK. Those Edelweiß were given to the Alpenkorps!

The other is an austrian officer´s Edelweiß and my collection

I did, matey,.. But it´s not big enough to recognize the badge ( 6 or 7 pollens)

Am I right that picture from post #126 shows Kgl. Bayer. Reserve-Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr. 8 ? Was it part of Alpenkorps?

No, it was not. I assume, he served with another unit in the AK, changed to the unit with the 8 and carried on wearing the EW

According to the unit history, Garr was wounded on September 28, 1918 and died on October 17th. At the time the unit was experiencing the "Stellungskämpfe und Schlacht in der Champagne". Nice Sterbebild! I collect the ones from this regiment.

Chris,

No, I had not seen those, but now I know who is outbidding me on 3.Jäger Rgt. Sterbebilder! :lol: I have one of these. The one to Leonhard Sinzinger, has the spelling corrected on the first name to Bernhard on subsequent cards. Evidently, the printer screwed up the name and had to fix some of the cards.

Johann Echter died from his wounds on July 6th, 1916 (good catch on that one!).

I didn't see any Hampps in the regimental history on those dates.

I'm still working on a complete alphabetical listing for the entire regiment. The regimental history gives the deaths by date. So finding Konrad Fuchs without knowing the death date is like searching for a needle in a haystack. Perhaps the location (St.Marie a Py) might provide a clue as to the date?

You can see glue rests on the card, they glued a Bern over the Leon ;-)

Hi Andy

I cannot get the back, it has 2 thin flat pins which go through the hat and are neatly bent flat. it is not possible to see if these pins were pit on to replace a normal pin... the other one just to compare size....
