Hi to all !

Here some of my new ones.

I would have some questions about the pics:

-  The shown Lt. has the number 15 on his shoulderboard - does it mean, he served in the 15 IR?

He wears a Pickelhaube - not a M 16 or later steel helmet. When i look at the MVO 4th class with X

i think (because of the swords) it is a piece of 1916 or later - the combination with Lippe is uncommon - sothe earliest date

for this pic would be that time.

The pic was made by Atelier Kegel (i found a Kegel Hoffotograph with shop in Wuppertal (prussia) and Kassel (hessia)).

Can anybody confirm, that the shown uniform is bavarian?

#2 :

Seems like a military official in a staff officier´s rank. (because of his shoulderboards?????)

Unfortunately no name and no date as on pic #1.

Can anybody confirm, that this guy has an official`s rank - if yes, that combination -for me - is interesting (with twm & IC 1st class)

 

Thanks again!

Hello!

The first one is a prussian uniform (crown-buttons). The other one is an official, you´re right.

The combination is strange. Is there anything on the reverses?

The 2nd photo was taken in Hildesheim. Doesn´t have to mean anything, of course. Could be home on leave.

Hi, Danke - thank you to all.

#1 - is it a guy of IR 15 - an infanterist?

#2 - no, unfortunately no date, no name, no unit.  I think it´s a photo taken at "home".

The #2 appears to be a beamte with the rank of Major. interwoven cord made SBs with a crowned shield on and no rosettes.

Number 1 could be August Scheel, but I can't say for certain as my Lippe list is incomplete.

Scheel, August Wilhelm Heinrich, *5.1.1885 in Elberfeld, gef. 13.2.1916 b. Neuve Chapelle; Königlicher Bahnhofsvorsteher in Elberfeld, Leutnant der Reserve, 8./IR 15. EK1, BMV4X (6.12.14), LK (7.6.15).

Thanks to all. - Wow Dave - Mr. Data - that´s great. Thank you. - so KIA in 1916.

I.m.o. the MVO4X is a piece of around 1916 - it would be great, if Andreas could have a look on it.
