    Hello Christophe, all,


    please find attached three photos of two different and unknown officers with their HHO3X.

    I hope they are of use for you.


    Is there any chance for an identification?


    Kind regards,






    Same couple, different setting




    Different, also unknown veteran of 1870 and 1914+

    Does this picture count, too? ?

    It´s Prince Leopold IV. of Lippe-Detmold, the picture was taken around 1930.
