[...] thought I share, perhaps one of you owns his bar.

"What a foolish idea" was my first thought, to be honest. Buuut...

I don't know who owns it now, but the bar is damn close to this bar - with set - that was owned by our very own HeikoGrusdat but has been sold, if I my memory serves me right.

World's small, isn't it.

What a small world............................ :speechless1:

The group has been sold to another member of this forum, maybe he will be very lucky now to get a name to this group with a now known face and a (for us) new breast cross to this group !!!!

In my eyes this is exactly the medal bar from my (former) group !!!!

picture has been sold on ebay.de for 68 Euro...

Whoever he was, he was retired before 1924, so I have not been able to find him! :banger::banger:

That pinback "WK2cX" should be the key, since there is nothing on his medal bar that we have worked on Rolls for.

Maybe Daniel can turn him up from his W?rttemberg work.

I would say this officer began the war as a very senior Major, was almost immediately promoted to Oberstleutnant and then promoted again by war's end to Oberst, and probably falls through the cracks as one of those neither Imperial nor Reichswehr charakterisiert Generalmajor aD 1920 types.

This is why the seller said in his auction title "picture from Glogau" ..... that is a german city..... but maybe it is his name ?!

The only Glaugau that could be a match is a Generaloberarzt Dr. Glaugau that has a RAO4 in 1914 !!! Could it be him?

Dr. Georg Glogau, Dr. med. from the University of Berlin in 1888 (Dissertation on "Zur Casuistik der Oberschenkelamputation im unteren Drittel nach Gritti"). Listed in the DOA 1908/09 with RAO4 and ZM, as OStA in IR 74 (Hannover). In 1914 Generaloberarzt (Divisionsarzt) at the 20th Division (Hannover). A.D. as Generalarzt.

There are no medical devices on his boards, and a Generalarzt under the rank titles back then was = to an Oberst, not an actual General.

I come up empty on this one, unless Daniel has him for a list of WK2cX holders I do not have. :(

I was with Daniel night and we discussed this photograph. The wonderful Daniel had already identified the gentlemen through his decorations but was unable to post because of computer problems. A quick check of the "Kabisch" confirmed Daniel's very correct assumptions:

char. Generalmajor Wilhelm Budde formerly Commandant of Glogau.

General Budde, born 5 July 1868 and died 26 June 1934 was a Prussian Pionier officer who commanded in Glogau from 16 May 1920 until his retirement on 30 September 1923.

    • 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.
