Like so much else about the Weimar period, without extensive references, assigning exact dates and makers to pieces according to how they are manufactured is often difficult. For a period that was...

Alan

I think you may be overreacting a little. You didn't offend me or likely anyone else. Also, I understand perfectly what you were trying to get at. I was just trying to add alternatives to the...

It looks ok. These were produced right up to the early 1970s as Freikorps vets were still alive and still buying replacements etc. It's hard to date this one. But, it's probably 1930s-40s. Can you...

Yes. When I showed this at the same time on GMIC, it was established that her title came from her husband. I assume therefore her husband probably also got the SAII.

Sure there are inaccuracies and illogical plot points. But, it's a movie not a documentary. It was entertaining and it's good to see a comparatively decent WWI movie. There needs to be more....

Awaloff Cross

Example 5, 10, 11 are actually Randow Crosses, IMO
All the miniatures on page 213 are in fact Jungdo (Jungdeutscher Orden) Ehrenkreuzen, as said previously. You sometimes even find...

Do you have the photo? My guess is that the shield you saw on a Freikorps plane was likely 1920 Polizei Fliegerstafel and not exactly Freikorps. Also, I don't think this badge has anything to do with...

No. You occasionally see photos of women wearing the Freikorps uniforms of their boyfriends/husbands just as they did during Imperial times. But, they never fought.
