You must be joking? You got both Fredinand Schörners Militärpass and his ring?


Is his Pour le Merite entered in it?

I'd love to see more, either in private or in public! Amazing! Wow! Wow! Wow!

Congratulations Chris, this is by far the best Militärpass I have ever seen! :love:

The page with the awards is a seperate sheet he filled out and signed in 1920, the Militärpass goes up to the end of 1915, but has the EK1, EK2, Bavarian MVO4th class with swords and the Austrian Militär Verdienstkreuz in it, unfortunately the PLM was not entered but officially the Militärpass was no longer filled out after he was promoted to LT d, Res.mp3.thumb.jpg.2888a4f49f8ac4dd1b039b0d7a67962a.jpg

Hi, there was an Abschrift from the III Batl. Leib regt Tagesbefehl dated 9th of december announcing it.

In his records on Ancestry he has the 17th as the award date.

I assume it was approved the 5th, announced the 9th and the ceremony on the 17th?

Here is a little bit about his unit.

Since june 1919 the LIR became

1.bayer. RW-Schützen-Regiment 41 München (I. and III.Btl. München, II.Btl. Rosenheim)

In october 1919 it became:

RW-Schützen-Regiment 41 München (I.Btl. München, II.Btl. Passau, III.(Jäger) Btl.Landshut

Later: 19.(bayer.) Inf.Rgt. München (I.Btl. München, II.Btl. Augsburg, III.Btl. Kempten and Lindau, Ers.Btl. Landshut

Note that he wrote: Bayer. Jäger-Bataillon 41

What he means is: III.(Jäger) Btl./Reichswehr-Schützen-Regiment 41

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
