Hi Gents,

 

I would like to share some photos from my collection.

 

I couldn´t identify them. Maybe someone is able to 

 

find out who it is. Every help appreciated.

 

This photo is signed with Graf von R. on the back.

 

I think he is a major from the Ulanen and he is at least wearing BMVO 2 and breaststar from RAO

 

 

 

 

 

Regards

Andreas

So, does anyone who who this officer is? I assume he is a royal as he wears the Red Eagle Grand Cross and the Bavarian Military Merit Order 1st class. It's not a second class as its too large. I assume he wears an EK2 1914

I would love to own a copy of this photo. It's superb

of course!

 

 

Bavarian chevauleger officer from Bamberg with

 

Not a Chevauleger but an Ulanen Officer: Rittmeister Oskar Renz of 1. Ulanen-Regiment around 1895. And yes, that is a KO4.

Andreas,

 

 

General from Magdeburg with:

 

I am fairly sure that is Oberst (later Generalmajor) Albert Crusius, Kommandeur of Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr. 4 around 1872. I believe that is a Luxemburg Order of the Oak Crown Officers' Cross in the end position on the medal bar.

 

RAO4, KO3, EK1 70, DA, LEK4

 

Regards

Glenn

    • 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.
