JustinG posted a topic in German Empire: Orders, Awards & DecorationsGreetings all, Well as I was able to wrap up and complete my Kriegsmarine Zerstörer collection. I have decided to take on a new area of collecting. I am going to collect the ships and perhaps the units tallies that took part in the Battle of Jutland. A monumental task and a very difficult one I believe, however I believe that with enough time, luck and money, this too can be achieved. I have some tallies on the way. I am looking forward to sharing them with you all. SMS Friedrich der Grosse SMS Ostfriesland SMS Thueringen SMS Oldenburg SMS Posen SMS Nassau SMS Deutschland SMS Hannover SMS Schlesien SMS Muenchen It is interesting to point out that umlauts or the ß symbol were not used with imperial tallies, so if the word had an umlaut like München or say Großer Kurfürst it would be spelled fully out as Grosser Kurfuerst. I know many of you probably understand that however, there hasn't been an imperial Mützenband posting yet. So. I am leading the way on this forum. All the best, JustinG
Greetings, Many of you might know that I am working on building my Imperial German Navy cap tallies/Mützenbänder. Well, I managed to pick up a nice Silver S.M.S. Regensburg on a nice period Tellermütze. Thanks for looking.
Greetings, Well, I did deviate a bit. I purchased a large grouping of Mützenbänder from non-Jutland combatants and I thought I would start a thread showing our collections of S.M.S, K.u.K and imperial time Mützenbänder. I look forward to seeing what tallies you all have in your collections. Here we go:
Greetings, I wanted to sort of start a trend. I recently discovered this individual. Quite a fascinating story. I had never heard of him. There are many interesting individuals from both world wars. It would be great if we could shed some light on them and perhaps inform other members of their exploits. This particular officer had a most incredible history. I am enclosing a link from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felix_von_Luckner Just an incredible individual. Best Regards, JustinG
