Prussian General Officer Pickelhauben- named

Post by nzef1940 » Wed Jun 20, 2018 6:19 am

This one looks good to me and untouched, it is named to Rönnpage.

Any help re finding ‘Rönnpage’ on the Officers list would be appreciated.

Thanks, no rank list, the town is Moelln which is a town east of Hamburg and south of Luebeck.

Apparently the surname ‘ Rönnpage ‘ is North German.

It is a lovely helmet but you will not find a Prussian general officer of that name. Perhaps a later owner?

Regards
Glenn

Beautiful Helmet..I have a prussian Ranglist from 1913, but unfortunately found no Rönnpage in there.
You should ask „argonne“, he is very good in such investigations.
Best wishes, Sandy

Excellent piece, congratulations. That is a textbook example of the General Officer helmet.

No officer with this name RÖNNPAGE in the Ehrenranglisten 1902, 1907 and 1911....

But one Leutnant RÖNNPAGEL in the JR17 in the Ehrenrangliste 1914-18.....
