Ranglisten have been partially shut down (13.9.2021)

Recommended Posts

For years I have been thankful that many Ranglisten were open to the public. On 13 September 2021 HathiTrust has locked many of their documents, the Ranglisten of the Prussian Army from 1896 to 1914 (https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000495263) are no longer available. Same with the Kaiserliche Marine, on Sunday everything worked well, now the most (https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/008373258) are locked.

Hello Deutschritter.
the rankings from 1896-1914 are at HathiTrust only in the USA public domain.
This effect occurs if HathiTrust is accessed with a European IP address. The ranking lists can only be used to a limited extent. You can get around this with VPN. e.g. with Opera browser

Yes, you are right, and of course I use an US IP, therefore I was so shocked, that the Ranglisten 1896 and earlier were locked, but it has been cleared up. Maybe they were just doing some internal assessments and/or adjustments ... oh well, who knows, I'm just glad, this source has not "dried up". How content those must be, who have their own lists at home in their personal library.

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
