  1. Hi Andrew! GGR5 had a single yellow braids (Litzen) This one has yelow-double braids. So it´s Garde-Fußartillerie-Regiment
  2. 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...
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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...)
  7. It is interesting that in the booklet "The Russian Fortifications against Germany and Russian Principles in Fortress Warfare" (Berlin, spring 1914, classified as "Secret"), no 25.4cm are listed! Presumably the fortresses were only equipped with these guns during the war.
  8. Wow!!!!! That´s great!!!!! These are the infos I´ve been looking for Thank you very much!!!!! At the guns I can read N12 and N14. Germany captured 8 of those guns. Germany would have written Nr. or No. Could it be, that the N is still from Russia (The Cyrillic alphabet does not have a N) You wrote, there were two guns in the Forteress. (we captured 8). Do you mean only the Forteress III or two in the entire Kovno-Forteress-system?
  9. Hello! I´ve got a question of these guns. The photos should have been taken near Kovno. But they are not german. Are they russian? Thanks a lot!
