Peter,

I thought a long time before pushing the button to send that post. I almost did'nt and maybe I should have just moved on. But I tried to be level headed about it. You might be able to imagine, however, how you would feel in similar circumstances.

I was considering adding the photo that you have posted to this thread, so thanks for doing it form me! I have been trying to protect the photos that I post in this manner, Of course, it can be circumvented, but I have at least made the effort. And I don't mind people downloading the images that I post if it is for their personal use. I do purchase photos that I plan to use in future reference material and, of course, I do not put those on the Internet.

CNOCK,
I was referring to that photo and if you have the exact duplicate in your collection, then I apologize for mentioning it specifically. What are the chances of that happening? In retrospect, I should have thought to ask about it in the first place. Unfortunately, the possibility of a duplicate postcard did not occur to me.

Hi Chip,

no problem,

in a way funny, I see a lot of downloaded images used by others, I am a victim myself.. and I am picked out as an offender :roll:, while the real offenders on this Forum are not interpellated.

back of the studio photo is mentionned Carl Bilgeri, Photograh Lindau i.B
and text : zur Erinnerung an dem Urlaub in August 1917

Regards,

Cnock

CNOCK,

Thanks for being so magnanimous.I took a look at the back of my photo and it, of course, has the same photographer, but surprizingly, the exact same inscription in pencil. It is postally unused.

And just for interest's sake, my photo, which was posted by Peter also has an inscription on the back. It says, "the first section of the entire front in the West".

Greetings,
Chip

Another tip-off is that the tunics have no shoulder straps and no buttons for attaching them. The Matrosen Regiment sailors did not wear them, whereas the marines of the See Bataillone did have shoulder boards and also wore army style sleeve patches (Winkerabzeichen, MGSS Abzeichen, etc.), while the sailors wore regular navy sleeve rates. This is one of the style (in gray cotton) that would have been worn on the gray cotton duty clothing and perhaps on the Bluse sleeve as well.

Hi 3.JägerRgt.,

you posted the badge (grenade in red on green with red chevrons) for the field-grey tunic of Marinekorps Flandern.
Is it a true one or is it one for reenactors? I search for these badges in green/field-grey. Where did you get I, please?

Thanks and cheers

Obermatrose,

This is one of three navy patches that I just received last week from a dealer in Germany. Two of the patches were on gray cotton cloth and one was on white. They are 100% original and came from the same sailor. The white one is dated on the back. I collect imperial navy items from the land troops and these are the first gray patches that I have been able to find in many years of collecting. Here is the other gray one for your review. It was sewn on a shirt at one time (white edging) and it has many loose gray threads on the back. I believe the rank is Bootmannsmaat.

Forget if asked before,and this thread active,but what was the standard or main name for german marines in WW1.Like was it the same when they first started or changed a few times over the years?.Like where they called the kaisermarine,or see seabattalions,any others that used the most.
