Krupp celebrated its first 100 years in 1912. In two more years - 1914 - the Kaiser will be thankful Alfred Krupp started making cannon.

Hi IG!

Here we have no guns, but two visits of the "Gußstahlfabrik Krupp in Essen"

1) Feldart.Rgt.43

2) Kriegsschule Hersfeld

Note, in #1 there is a Lt. Pellengahr in the background. This one was my grandfathers battery-leader in the post-war period from winter18-automn 1919 (Freiwilligen-Batterie Pellengahr). Pellengahr later was Generalmajor and was partipicated in the planing of "Weserübung 1940" (occupation of Norway and Denmark)
