You are right Rick, Santa comes earlier this year.

I have two more photo. First one is the Generalmajor Goerg Postel who received during WW1 the following orders : SH3, SA3bX, EK2, RE3X.

During WW2, he received the oak leaves to his knight cross.

"9" takes us nowhere... it must refer to a Brigade or ???????????

That generic M1915 tunic doesn't help BUT--

note that there are TWO layers of different underlay under his Hauptmann/Rittmeister shoulder boards-- a Waffenfarbe and a second layer. No collar Litzen...

1) SA3bX or SA3aX

2) EK2

3) Must be SLD2-- he's got to be a RESERVE Captain (I am positive there are 2 pips there on his boards)

4) ?

5) BMV4X

60 Hmmm...... HT? OK2?

Will work on this offline.

He's almost certainly a Rittmeister dR--

The double Waffenfarbe/Vorstoss is our only clue-- confined to SchRgt 108, many (not all) cavalry units, and Pioneers (thought that would be the other way around with the black plush darkest on bottom not top...

I've found two more Saxon "9" units-- Ersatz Regiment 9 Though I cannot find what division that was in) and Reserve Ulanen-Schützen Regiment 9 in 8. Kavallerie Division.

    • 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.
