Einjähriger Freiwilliger der Kaiserlichen Marine - one year volunteer in the Imperial navy






It was also worn together with the mine qualification badge by Freikorps Volunteer Minesweeper troops clearing mines in the North Sea in 1919.

Yes bolewt ,your badge, good quality one ! Oberheizer Esselmann , did you know if he completed the training and become reserve officer ? engineer officer 

No. I'll have to go through his 2 passes again and check that. But, I have a feeling he didn't because that's his picture in 1919 when he was in the Freiwillige Minensuchverbände der Nordsee.  I also have his cap tally that says "Minensuchverbände der Nordsee. "
