Gentlemen, I am looking for WW I decorations for Walter Nicolai, leader of the Sektion / Abteilung III b from 1913 to 1918. Seeing the picture we can see EK II and I, but what else? Surely HOH? Some austrian awards (III b worked closely together with the k. u. k. „Evidenzbureau“)? Some Turk awards? Please let me know! Thanks!!!

This is what I have on his promotions, not 100 % sure about Hauptmann:

22.3.1893 Sekonde-Lieutenant

22.4.1902 Oberleutnant

11.9.1907 Hauptmann ohne Patent

... 1909/1910 Patent als Hauptmann vom 20. März 1906 erhalten (maybe just a new Rangdienstalter?)

1.10.1912 Major

27.1.1918 Oberstleutnant

27.2.1920 Charakter als Oberst; zur Disposition gestellt

Hauptmann: 11.9.07 B8b. Although his promotion was überzählig (supernumerary), he was immediately awarded a Patent effective his promotion date of 11 September 1907.

Glenn

Thanks so much, Daniel ... and yes, you have mentioned it once or twice ... 😉 One day ... maybe, but the next years I am investing every cent in my four children. I would love to have a big library with all of these documents and books ... but ... oh well, you know ... I'm having problems with "f.WK3X", would you please shove me in the right direktion? Does that maybe mean he received first WK3X, then WK2cX?

 

Sincerly,

Andreas

Dear Daniel, if you have the time, please let me know, if you have any WW I decorations for Generalleutnant Otto Freiherr von Brandenstein. I would, as always, be very thankful.

    • 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.
