    The Kaiser’s Prize (Kaiserschiessabzeichen)

    Steve, according to the Verordnung from the 2nd September 1903: "... that the badge is only awarded every two years and that it is only to be worn by the MG-Abteilung for one year. ..." ... so I assume that the entire MG Abteilung received the badge!??? In the "Taschenbuch des...

    The Kaiser’s Prize (Kaiserschiessabzeichen)

    Hi Steve, here is my tunic with Kaiserabzeichen and Kaiserschnur! And you have to take a look into the back pockets inside (Schosstaschen) of your jacket, maybe there is also a label from the tailor? Sometimes there is also something "hidden" in there. ;) Best regards, Jens

    Waffenrock Elizabeth Garde Grenadier Regt 3 / 4 Kp

    Steve, wonderful tunic! Congratulations! I think the Kaiserabzeichen is from Juncker (under the crown must be a small "CEJ"). :) Best regrads, Jens p.s.: there is also a story about this imperial badge for 1912. At first, the Erste Garde Regiment had acquired this award in 1912. But afterwards...

    A summary of the history of the Prussian helmet eagles

    Hi, it is difficult with the guard eagle without a star, probably too many different variants (as Clovis 57 already wrote). (with straight or curved crossguard, Bandeau variants, number of tail feathers, sceptre with arcanthus flower or with small eagle, etc. ...) Many years ago I was talking...

    Steve, that*s correct, but the FAR29 have the cypher "L" until May 1913 and the Königsabzeichen they won before that time. ;) Best regards, Jens

    Prussian Fahnentrager

    Steve, there was about 16 Prussian line infantry units with the 1813 Säkularband (and only one of them was rheinisch). On the Säkularband 1813 is writen: "Infanterie des Lützowschen Freikorps" and this also fits for the Inf.-Rgt. von Lützow (1. Rheinisches) Nr. 25. Perhaps an enlargement of the...
