    Looks like "M. Schildknecht"


    Second line might be "Stolp i.P.{ommern", but that's a guess.


    Sweet! thank you Dave.

    It is always better to show both sides.

    1) Stationsleiter Oberleutnant Schiller vor seiner Felsenwohnung Xanthi 1917.

    2) ??? Flugboot als Gleitboot und Rettungsboot in Putzig.

    Premier Lieutnant Carl Muskewitz, Kommandeur des Pferde-Depots der 8. Armee-Korps

    Signed by the Comander of the 8th Army-Corps. It´s the award certificate for participants of the war of 1866.

    The man was Pr.Lt. Carl Muskewitz.

    Ranklist 1866/67: 4. Rheinisches Landwehr-Regiment Nr.30, 1. Bataillon in Trier, Train.

    The commanding General of VIII. Corps was General d.Inf. Herwarth v. Bittenfeld



    Probably he did a good job in 1866, because four years later, in the Iron Cross list of 1870/71, he received the Iron Cross 2nd class in the same duty! Here his rank was already Rittmeister:



    In ranklist 1870/71 he was listed as Rittmeister in 8. Landwehr-Regiment Nr.70, 1.Bataillon in Trier. In 1872 he left the army.

    His first ranklist-entry was 1860, he used to be Sec.Lt. in 1. Rheinisches Landwehr-Regiment, 1. Bataillon, Aachen, Train.

    That means he never was an active officer. He served as a one-year-volunteer in 1859, promoted to Sec.Lt. and then he served as an officer of the Reserve, later officer of the Landwehr.

    Thank you!

    That´s hard...

    Above is "Zum freundlichen Gedenken" (in friendly remembrance), then it could be "Falkenau" (a small town in Saxony),

    But unfortunately I can´t read the name. Is it military?

    I believe the name in "von Ohnesorge."  If the photo has anything to do with artillery, it would most likely be Feodor von Ohnesorge.  1914 a captain and "Lehrer an d. Feldart. Schießschule."

    Bruno is possible. To me it could be Bruno Anesorg.

    But he is unknown to me. Do we have any more infos indicating him as a soldier?

    The Flieger-Obermaat could be Max Anesorge, missing in 1918:



    Max Anesorge died with UC 57. He is not the navy flyer.



    Don't make it to complicated. Can we see the avers?

    Sure, let’s meet Fl.Ob.Mt Anesorge, wearing his old artillery unit outfit with a seefliegerabzeichen and two award ribbons, the 2nd ribbon behind EK2 is unclear to me.

    Great pic Lew. Congratulation.
    It seems he was a Army soldier before he came to the Navy aviation.

    I have him as an Artillerie Matrose but didnt' know that he was an Army man.


    I miss the award for the EK2 for many persons on my database. I'm sure the most of them got the cross but I want a confirmation before I enter the information.

    Please send me a copy of the picture for my database without copyright.


    Regarding the second ribbon it is important to know where he came from.

    Unfortunately I don't have the place of birth for Anesorge.

    If he was a Saxon (Falkenau) than Friedrich-August-Medaille is likely.

    Sure here is the full content.



    I belive that the location is "Holtenau" not "Falkenau". Anesorge was at the Stamm of I. SFA at Holtenau from Mar. - May 1918.

    But the picture was done later.
