Hello!

His units were:

12.10.04-18.9.06: Fusilier-Regiment 38, 10th comp.

14.8.-18.9.08: Manoeuvre in Inf.Rgt.154, 5th. comp.

11.-24.5.11: Manoeuvre in Inf.Rgt.154, 4th comp.

14.8.14-10.7.17: Eisenbahn-Hilfs-Bataillon 1, 4th comp. (Railroad-support-bataillon)

11.7.17: Ersatz-Bataillon, Eisenbahn-Rgt.4

13.7.17: I.Ersatz-Bataillon, Eisenbahn-Rgt. 4, 3rd comp.

27.10.17: II.Ersatz-Bataillon, Eisenbahn-Rgt.4, 3rd comp.

10.12.17: Eisenbahn-Betriebs-Kompagnie 83

26.12.17: in Eisenbahn-Betriebs-Kompagnie 83 eingetroffen (arrived)

He received Iron Cross 2nd class April 20, 1917 and the turkish Iftikar medal February 23, 1917.

The Iftihar Medal was originally written: İftihar Nişanı (Order of Glory).

But I think, that is wrong, because as far as I know that medal was only awarded to higher turkish officers.

I can´t believe, a simple soldier from a Railroiad-Support-Bataillon did receive such an ordre!

In WW1 the following awards were available for military persons:

Order of the Mejedie (Order of Osmanieh)

Imtiaz Medal

Liakat  Medal

Iron Crescent

Could you please show the left side of page 12 (under the stamp)

Hi,

I think you are wrong.

Hello Andreas!

That´s interesting! Thanks a lot! But I stil wonder, what did a man of a railroad-support-bataillon do, to receive such a medal?
