Thanks

Hi,

I think, that the name is Jastel. It can be the last name or a nickname. For me there is no "k" and no "b" in the name.

I´d politely disagree. No Jastel in the Verlustlisten, WIA or KIA. As christian name highly unlikely.

For me still Jakob.

Is the date of death the 13th or 15th? Hard to read....

 

I think the photo may be a Leib Regiment Photo. Very few guys were killed on the 13th... one of them is a man named Kastl, on the 12th a man named Jaser ...

Maybe a spitzname for Kastl

Yup, it was for some reason a realiively quiet day as far as deaths went for the Leiber... so I included the 12th of July in my name search as well, Often guys wounded in the night before end up listed as dead on the next day.

Can anyone read this? It looks like Wendelin Lenhard ... but the name Lenhard is very eare indeed and I find no Lenhard in the Bavarian Army....mug.thumb.jpg.651aa5829b3d4273a7ea4af3d3577332.jpg

Hi,

you are correct... I had the search done wrong, there are lots of Lenhard... but absolutely no Wendelin as far as I can see...

 

28 000 is a lot of life invested! :-)

I guess wendelin had no WW1 Service

I don´t think either...

The Stein is from 1899. By outbreak of the war he was around 36, so probably he served with Landwehr or Landsturm, if he did serve...

Hi,

usually indeed.... but sometimes there is a surprise hidden amongst the old guys...

However, this gus is nowhere to be found, so I am guessing 1 of 4 things

1) He died before the war

2) He did not serve in the war

3) He served, but not in the Bavarian Army

4) Ancestry transcribed his name totally wrong. It happens quite often, and you can usually still find the guy with his first name and date of birth, but I checked 4 years of Wendolins and nothing to be found.

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • 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
