meet Generalleutnant Friedrich Zickwolff

Recommended Posts

Dear forumites,


I'd like to show you a group of ribbon bars I managed to purchase at Reichertshofen which belonged to Generalleutnant and Ritterkreuzträger Friedrich Zickwolff (see also: http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/Personenregister/Z/ZickwolffFriedrich-R.htm )

His uniform and medal bar were sold by Hermann Historica, years ago in 2013:

Lot Nr. 6604
Generalleutnant Friedrich Zickwolff (1889 - 1944) - a field tunic and breeches  

Old-pattern field tunic in field-grey tricot cloth with dark green collar, red piping on the button facing, golden buttons, sewn-in shoulder boards and red collar patches with golden Larisch embroidery (slightly darkened). Breast eagle missing. Affixed Iron Cross 1st Class of 1914, Wound Badge 1918 in Black and a six-piece field orders clasp. Green silk lining with Berlin tailor's tag. Breeches of stone-grey cloth with broad, red stripes, leg closure with laces and small buttons, signs of usage on the stripes at the height of the boots. 
Generalleutnant Friedrich Zickwolff, from 1909 on Leutnant in Infantry Regiment König Wilhelm I (6th Württemberg) no. 124, 1931 Major in Group Command 2 Kassel, 1936 Oberst and Kommandeur of the Infantry Regiment 119 Stuttgart, 1939 Generalmajor und Kommandeur of the 227th Infantry Division, in 1941 he was appointed Generalleutnant and on 2 June 1942, he was awarded the Knight's Cross to the Iron Cross 1939 as Kommandeur of the 113th Infantry Division. Until seriously wounded on 25 August 1943, he commanded the 343rd Infantry Division. On 17 September 1944 he died as a result of his wounds.

Very nice items Claudio. Of course it's always depressing to see Nachlaesse being split up.

at least here we still know the origin of the single pieces of the group. There are so many pieces forever detached from their former owner.

    • 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.
