Schrippen  is Berlin dialect.  Here it's called Brötchen.  I'll have a Wurst for lunch today. ..☺

Looks like you have some reading to do! I'm especially interested in the Leuchtmittel volume.

I know Schrippen is Berliner. I was being posh for a Prussian's benefit! :cheers:  (At least I didn't say Semmel ;) )

I am having Linseneintopf mit Wiener Würstchen (made by my very own Hausfrau).  Unfortunately, no echte Brötchen, Schrippen, or even a Flesserl in the area.

Because of the design I am very happy to add the 22. Schützen Div. tinnie, which has a Bavarian button as a shield for a medieval warrior. The unit fought as part of the German 14th Army, which was in Italy from inception to the end of the war. The Austrian I. Korps and Bavarian III Korps were part of the 14. Armee, so I would venture the 22. Schützen Div. was influenced by Bavarians in the sector. My question; is it likely this was worn by Bavarian/German troops?

Hello Fritz!

I don´t think so. The austrians were under german command, but no gferman unit was under austrian command. So the would be no reason for them to wear a divisional badge.

Are there any influences? Note that none of the austrian or german badges were allowed to wear by the german Emperor!

The only allowed badges were the Edelweiß and the Carpathian Corps badge.

Just picked up this photo. Stamped on back "Sturmabteilung Bayr 8. Res. Division"  1917. XXI Korps, Erzherzog Carl and kb RID Verbandsabzeichen appear to be worn willy nilly.

Bayr. 8. Res. Div. Reviewing again, seems just one XXI Korps may be present, but many have Heeresfront Erzherzog Carl.

I wonder why the 10th Bavarian Div badge is so much more difficult to find than the others :-(

Super pic Fritz!!!!

Thanks, Chris! I proudly own one, but yes, photographic evidence is tough as well. 

Andy, I think it is just the turn of the badge as pinned. Cropped in on the detail:

Hello Fritz!

Please check the sizes of the two badges. 8th RD was smaller than Carl. Herre 8thRD seems to be larger...

I don´t think it´s 8thRD

I can see it and it looks like the 8th Reserve Division insignia to me. It makes sense with the other pins in the photo. What else would it be?

Hello Chip!

Well, you might be right. If I compare it with the collar badge in the back ground. Maybe it´s been worn at the collar...

I think it just appears a little larger because of placement on the cap curving around the head. The shape is right, even looking at the other men.

Here another nice example with 21.Korps, b.10.Inf.Div., Böhm-Ermolli, Erzherzog Carl

That is flippin' awesome, Andy! First time I have seen the 10.ID Verbandsabzeichen in a photo. Not to mention the style the soldier exhibits wearing them as he does, and overall look of the photo. Exceptional find! What regiment does he have on his Schulterklappen?

Sorry, I can´t recognoize them. Because of the cuffs it´s probably Fieldartillery.

According to the tinnies maybe bavarian 19 or 20

Greetings Everyone,

        This grouping including German uniform buttons just sold on eBay. Since several of the Kappenabzeichen shown are identified as being worn by Germans (check marked), what is the likelihood of some of the others also being worn? Andy, I expect you may have some ideas. :)

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • 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
