Pictures of Emil Fey

Post by Orok » 30 Apr 2004 16:17

These are two pictures of Emil Fey, allegedly taken in 1933. He is shown wearing the Heimwehr uniform. I would appreciate if anyone has pictures of him in Bundeswehr uniform or, even better, in Austro-Hungarian uniform! :lol:

Best Regards!

Hi Kaan,

Nice pictures! I especially like the studio photo ahowing him with the MMThO and Order of Iron Crown!

However both pictures show him in Heimwehr unifrom. Now I start to wonder whether Fey had ever appeared in Bundesheer uniform! :lol:

Thanks again and Best Regards!

Glenn,

Thank you for the nice picture, just what I wanted to see! :lol:

KaaN,

Fey was born in 1886. He was promoted to the rank of Major (of this rank he appears in Glenn's photo) in November 1922 and awarded the MMThO (you can see the ribbon for this award in the picture) in December 1922. Fey left the regular army to join the Heimwehr sometime in 1923. So this particular picture must be taken during the very short period between the award of his MMThO in December 1922 and his retirement from the army in 1923. Accordingly we can know he was of the age of 37 when this photo was taken.

Best Regards!

Hmm, thanks for the reply Orok :)
I assume that they put some make-up on him for the photo. :lol:
