  1. Hi Andrew! Thanks a lot. Well, the myth was alive since the 1930s. Volckheim wrote in his book, that a lot of A7V were sent to Poland. Dörffer wrote in his book, that 10 A7V were sent to Poland for exercises:
  2. Hello! In the military world we have a myth about german A7V tanks in Poland in 1919/20. In some books is written, that german A7V tanks, captured in France, were given to the polish army by the French in 1919. A number of 5-10 is marked. But I´ve never seen a proof of that myth. No documents, no photos, nothing at all. Does someone of you know, if the russian files mention this myth? I´ve read Pilsudskis book. Nothing. The german files are probably destroyed in 1944, no chance. The bavarians have a diary of that era, but no mention. They only write about the 120 Renau
  3. Hi Andrew! GGR5 had a single yellow braids (Litzen) This one has yelow-double braids. So it´s Garde-Fußartillerie-Regiment
  4. Well... I couldn´t find any special about him. In 1914 he was Oberleutnant (Patent 18.8.10) in 4th Ingenieur-Inspektion in the fortress Diedenhofen. He wore KO4 (Order of the crown 4th class). In that duty he served during the great war. As Leutnant (Patent 18.8.01) he served with Pionier-Bataillon Nr.3. His first ranklist-entry was in that bataillon too. So he was a simple bureau-officer... Probably he has never seen the front. A job like an official...
  5. Hello! Well, I can´t recognize general´s collars, so it´s a staff officer, probably a Major. I can´t read the entire text, but he subscribes with Lichnock
  6. Hello! But there I see Major a.D. That does´t make me think, he is the photographer... Oberleutnant Lichnock served with the 4th Ingenieur-Inspektion, later he was in Fortress Diedenhofen. At the end of war he was Major a.D. There was a Major v. Dücker in the Great General-Staff ("Grosser Generalstab"), later Oberst a.D.
  7. Ah, now I understand! I didn´t know that! Thanks a lot! So the numbers 12 and 14 probably means the entire number of these guns, not only the ones who were in Kovno.
  8. Hello! Thanks a lot for the new infos! I wonder about the written numbers 12 and 14 on the guns, if there were only two of them in Kovno... We captured 8 of those guns. The Kaunas Atlas is interesting. Maybe I can get a copy in Germany. I´m always afraid to order items from outside the EU (and because of the shipping prices...)
