Neither have I, Rob. That dealer comes up with some incredible paper items.

Hundi, I have no idea what kind of flags they are. But surely someone here will know.

Best,

Probably they are the regimental flags of the battle participants
see below

Hallo,
I recently read an account (the from "where" escapes me at the moment) which reflected that Hitler ordered the remains of Hindenburg and his wife to be taken to Königsberg. In late January 1945, the coffins were placed aboard the cruiser Emden with full honors and draped in the flags of various regiments that fought at Tannenberg. The coffins were then transferred to another vessel at sea and they returned to land at Stettin.

Can anyone fill in the rest of the story between Stettin and Marburg?

Regards,

Durand

Yes, the hall on the picture is described as the Fahnenturm - the regimental colours of regiments participating in the battle should be displayed there.

I didn't find any other best place to ask this, but truly I didn't find this info I'm looking for

What other german army officer were buried at the Tannenberg-memorial ? besides Hindenburg and Günther Korten.

Thanks!
