Lt dR Wilhelm Ruwie (destroyed seven tanks). From Nassauer Bote, 31.10.1918

Such an amazing project to lift all these brave men from oblivion 👍

Here's a picture I found somewhere. An unknown LW Major with HHOX, WF and Meiningen.

I think this ribbon bar belonged to one officer who probably died during WW1, because there is no LS medal. Rick can probably help you to identify this ribbon bar.

It could also be a wartime bar. Prussian 1914 Hauptmann combination with BMV4X - if the ribbon is correctly used - as a prewar award for Southwest Africa.

Hi Red Eagle,

I apologize for this late response, but I had sent my star back to where it lives (not here at home) by the time I saw your question. Since I got it back here, I have been trying to get a picture like yours but just can not seem to get a clear one.

Looking at my piece, one could say that it may, and I emphasize may, have one horizontal line like yours. Interestingly, it does have what appears to be a ?4? on the inside of the pin (see below)... No we won't see below - for some reason, I can't get the picture to attach.

I welcome any comments on all of this; and again apologize for this late response.

Best wishes,

Wild Card

... appears to be a "4" on the inside of the pin ...

Hi Wild Card, Hi Red Eagle,

the star I can add here seem to have a latin "4". Therefore I interpret the mark Red Eagle shows as a latin "2". But I have to send the pic later - the same problem, I am not able to atach it.

Greetings, Komtur.

My star dont have an additional number.

Red

I don?t mean that there is an additional number, I believe the "II" to be seen on your star could be a latin 2, because as I can show now (at least I hope so) there is a "IV" on the pin of the pic below.

With regards, Komtur.

Hello,

these roman numberals you can often find on Prussian breast start. Usually the pin, the corpus, the medaillon in the centre and sometimes the ring around the medaillon are signed with the same roman numeral.

Probably these marks were made for the differentiation of parts of different stars, while producing small series.

Best regards

In that case it is interestingly a "VI" and a "IV" (as I hope it is to be seen on the pic).

This statement is correct. Almost all decorations were made in a batch process and needed indentification on which parts matched together. You will find those makrings not only on Prussian orders, but on a variety of state orders and decorations.

Rick, Komtur,

Fritz Vieth was the former 3. Lothringisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 135 Vieth (Hptm 1.10.13 B50b) and still in that rank in the 1919 Dienstaltersliste. Magdeburgisches J?ger-Bataillon Nr. 4 Leutnant Vieth was promoted to Oberleutnant with a Patent of 27.1.15 J52i and was still in that rank in the 1919 Dienstaltersliste.

Regards

Glenn

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
