    AH 1332 November 30th 1913 to November 19 1914 (and 1332 is the date on the clasp)

    AH 1337 October 7 1918 to September 30 1918 by which time Turkey was kaput



    I totally agree with Claudius and  Paul the date is 1332 (Hijri) on the clasp which corresponds to : 1914.  

    With the amendments made on the Imtiyaz Medal Regulation Article 9 and Liyakat Medal Regulation Article 6 on November 16, 1914, attaching crossed saber clasps were allowed on the ribbons of these Medals. Clasps showing the names of the campaigns on the ribbons were also permitted.

    And it is (Suez) Canal (KANAL)

    Does anyone know more about his WW II activities? Was he once again, after 1918--1920, POW? Here is all I know: During the campaign in France 1940 he was Major der Reserve and "im Stab des Kommandeurs der Luftwaffe (Koluft) des AOK 16". 25 January 1945, now Oberstleutnant d. R., he baecame "Kommandant der Fliegerhorst-Kommandantur A (o) 21/III in Frankfurt an der Oder". He died 1972 in Hamburg and was buried in the family crypt in Hildesheim.

    Thank you! So he also served in the Luftflotte 1. That was new. He was quite a tall fellow. I wonder to which superior (General?) he is talking to?

    @ TacHel: just a preview... the ribbon bar. :whistle:



    May I use Falke's ribbon and medal bar, tie chain, his photos and medal list  in my future book 

    Best wishes
