I believe the EW Muenchen wore a helmet with a blue and white shield like the one in the re-enactor photo from the military museum in Stammheim.

A good contrast with the re-enactors is a contemporary photo postcard of Freikorps Werdenfels fighting in Munich on May 1, 1919.

It's in Stammheim, Bavaria. The wheels are pretty accurate to one type used on armored cars.

No. This ribbon has thin white edges like the Annexation of Czechoslovakia medal. The St. Vladimir does not have white edges.

Dotten it is, then. So, I just need to find out who Hauptmann Dotten was as he would have been one of Gotthard Sachsenberg's mates, as a Flieger-Abteilung commander in Kampfgeschwader Sachsenberg.

Thank you. That's what I read too. But, so far, I haven't been able to find a Hauptmann Dotten listed anywhere. He would likely have been in either Jasta 7 or Marine Jagdgeschwader during WWI.

Read a signature

As much as I've tried, I can't decipher the signature of the FFA425 Abteilung-Führer.

If one of the German members could be so kind, could you possibly tell me what the name is, please?

Thanks...

In the link, the sash badge appears to be gold which is promising. Also, the RAO riband is double-sided with chased barrel hinge joints which is also promising.

However, given the rarity, I'm...
