Hello I have two signatures that I want to find out the owners. First one is on a very handsome EKII Doc from a grouping to Bernhard Kniep (EKII, Hanseatic Cross, Hindy and a Turkish War Medal owner).

Thanks to Kevin for referring this thread to me!

One more signature to identify. This time from the home front (at least for me!)

A handwritten Turkish War Medal document from Istanbul. Does anyone has an idea if it is signed Braun or something else?

On a silver presentation box are engraved the name of 56 PLM winners, mostly Flieger and U-boot commanders.  But on each side are, I think, 6 names of Army Officers with PLMs.  I have had help identifying two names so far.  Any help IDing the last 4 would be appreciated!

I can't read the name of the commander or what artillery group he commanded. Trarottoki or Traratloki or something like that? Although it was an award recommendation to German soldiers, I wonder if the signatory might be Austro-Hungarian or even Bulgarian?

This is my first post.

Start with this E.K. 2. "urkunde" from 18. august 1916 to ??? L. Hermann signed 20. august 1916 by Major und Kommandeur der Pioniere  IX K.A. Krischbert ?

I have sought on the internet and can not find anything.

Do any of the members know who this is?

Oberleutnant Schuekri (Üsteğmen Şükrü)
Oberleutnant Sirri (Üsteğmen Sırrı)
Leutnant Sureya (Teğmen Süreyya): Btl.Kdr. II./türk. 73.Inf.Rgt

Thanks a lot!

    • 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.
