The above was from the Baudirektion of the 4. armee, i have no great hopes in identifying it.

This one from January 1917 may be easier

You're evil, man! :speechless:

#3 = "Looff," Major 19.8.14 J5i and char. Oberst aD from the Reichsheer HFriko. He PROBABLY received a SA3aX but... no first name in the Saxon roll, and a different job, so can't be sure, since there were TWO of them.

#4 = "Woelki," but which one is know but to God (or Glenn). THIS Woelki (you guessed it, no first name) received a SA3aX 28.10.16 as Major on staff of Armee Abteilung Scholtz, so that matches. I can't find ANY of the eventual Majors Woelki on a first pass who would have been promoted BEFORE February 1916.

#5 = "von Redern," Konrad (1870-1920) Otl 24.12.14 KK, Oberst 6.11.17 P ending war in Finland on GS of "German General Finland." BMV3X 24.11.14. RAO4, KO3, XXV, Anhalt 1896, 1897, MG2c, SA3a pre-war.

#8 = "von Neumann" (easy, easy, nyah nyah nyah) Gustav (1946-1921), char. Generalleutnant aD having retired before the war. Veteran of 1866 and 1870.

    • 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  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
    • I don't really drink that much these days, but there is something about a hot cup of Char that can't be beaten when you are cold wet and miserable. Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
