Hello, I came across this interesting Kleiner Rock and thought I’d post. It have gray collar tabs, silver buttons, and Officer boards that have a blue background, not gray.

Hello!

Which ribbons do we see?

Waldeck would be white-yellow-red-black

Lippe-Detmold would be white-red-yellow

Kleiner Rock:

The colour of the collar tab should be the same colour as the base colour of the shoulder board!

Verkehrstruppen (including aviators) had grey collar tabs.

The shoulder straps of aviators had a grey base too!

Fliegerbataillone additionally had a coloured piping:

1.Btl.: white

2.Btl.: red

3.Btl.: yellow

4.Btl.: light blue

Other units: no edge trim

So we have Flieger-Btl.4.

But the collar tabs and the shoulder boards should have had the blue pipings for 4th bataillon!

I’ll look but think ribbon is Mecklenburg 

The shoulder board underlay color is near cornflower blue

If it´s grey, it fits!

Mecklenburg had ribbons with blue, yellow or red in the middle.

Mecklenburg Schwerin and Mecklenburg Sterlitz used the same color combination on their ribbon for their Military Merit crosses 2nd class.

That is about as rare as rare can be.... how many General Staff officers could they have had?

That’s a good question... would be a great question had I known the answer.

I think there's a mix up here - the GS kleiner Rock is not a Mecklenburg item. There are now two discussions here, one of a ribbon on another kleiner Rock, the other on hte GS kleiner Rock ...... 😇

On the original post the Klienerrock has two ribbons in the button hole.

the 1st ribbon is all Black.

Is that the Prussian Order of St John, or is their another award that uses the same single black color ribbon?

Hi Chuck, I’m pretty sure the first ribbon is/was an EKII that the white stripes have worn off or become dark. I’ve seen the white stripes wear harder than the black. Ribbon guys may know why.
