Hi LioG,

Why posting so small and only partially?

The 2nd category is about his awards:
E.K.II
Hess.(ische) Verdienstmedaille
U.-Bootabz.(eichen)
Baltenkreuz
Malteserkreuz

The 3rd category:

Befreiungskämpfe im Baltikum
Rückzugskämpfe in Kurland und Litauen

Underneath his promotions:

1.9.14 zum Oberheizer
1.8.15 Masch.(inen) Maat
10.7.17 Ober Masch.(inen) Maat
11.10.19 (?) Wachtmeister

Rest later
Best regards
Armin

Hello Armin

Thanks you very much for your reply
A friend of mine sent me this photo for a U-boat & Freikorps veteran.

At the arrow says U C 59 ?

Hi LioG,

It looks like UC 59 but I think it's UC 54. According to this, there is only a UC 54 mentioned:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pola_Flotilla

Here's the rest:

25.12.17-13.2.18
U.-Boot Abt. S.K.S. "Vieneta"

14.12.18-17.11.18
UC 54 (1. U.-Flotille)

18.11.18-19.1.19
1.U.-Flotille

19.19-3.3.19
Marine Lazarett Hamburg

14.3.19-10.1.20
3. Batterie Art. Rgt. Stoer (?). am 10.1.20 infolge Auflösung des Rgt. entlassen

Best regards
Armin

Hello Armin

I dont think is the UC 54
https://uboat.net/wwi/boats/?boat=UC+54
UC 54 served in Pola/Mittelmeer II Flotilla

Its UC 59
https://uboat.net/wwi/boats/?boat=UC+59
This U-boat served from Dec 1917- Nov 1918 with I Flotilla

Finaly the
3. Batterie Art. Rgt. Stoer (?). am 10.1.20 infolge Auflösung des Rgt. entlassen
I believe is Stever
Korvettenkapitän Ernst Stever which formed a Artillery Detachment belonged to the Freikorps Weickhmann
