This photo was forwarded to me just now.  Pause after a battle. Apparently no description with this, so this could be one of several regiments, the shoulder straps have some sort of monogram, but unclear in photo. Field covers are worn on the busbys. Could be Husaren-Regiment 8, 13, 15 or 16

Husar Ewald Clauen Bollmann, 2. Eskadron
Missing at Néry on 1. September 1914 - presumed captured. No further information, he is listed in the regimental history published 1931 still as missing.
Another source stated that he was killed by artillery fire, no proof of this.
These photos and these of his peacetime blue uniform are in a collection near Hannover, and were kindly forwarded by a historian in Holland.

Regimental history simply states:

Husar BOLLMANN, Ewald Clauen,  01.09.1914 bei Néry - 2. Eskadron, vermisst

the so-called "Mannschaftsausgabe", paperback edition for other ranks, recently acquired by a friend in Holland for his extensive archive and research on the regimental history.

This Reservistenkrug was recently on offer, was sold rather quickly for a very cheap price, due to damage.
The pewter lid is missing, the end piece still attached, there are also a couple of minor chips and the bottom of the Krug has a small hole punched through, said to be when the man died, that this was done so that no-one else could drink out of the vessel.

Gefreiter Gerth served 1906-1909 in the 2. Eskadron of the regiment. Possibly he was a WW1 casualty.
The names are all listed on the sides of the Krug, which is the advantage of these pieces as they retain a historical record.

I have been seeing a lot of these type steins for sale lately. Some are very plain to heavily ornate, a huge collection must have been put on the market.

They don't always sell well, unless somebody is after a specific regiment. Of course the lists of names are very interesting, as these are probably all the surviving record of the names, as much of the documentation from 1867 till 1945 was destroyed in WW2.
Steins of Husaren-Regt.15, when they turn up, and that is not so often, have been sold for around 750 Euros a piece, and no two are the same...

Alfred Gottwald, 1892-1961, a family connection, had his Stein from Dragoner-Regiment 17 (Ludwigslust), but it was lost along with everything else in the bombings in July 1943.

These four photos were just received from the granddaughter of Otto Dierssen, who served in Husaren-Regiment 15. One of the photos however, shows soldiers from another regiment, identifiable as Mecklenburgisches Dragoner-Regiment 17 (Ludwigslust).

still in possession of his family.

2 Säbeltaschen, rather faded, in the centre, significance of this piece unknown, certainly not part of the official uniform or equipment, a private addition.

I am researching the HKK 2 and the 4th Cavalry Division in the “Great Retreat” from Mons and have become interested in Nery.  I have found virtually  nothing on this that includes German sources.  I have found the histories of the 17th and 18th Dragoons, the 16th Hussars, the 3rd Ulans and the Reitende Abteilung, 3rd Artillery Regiment.   You obviously have a copy of the 15th Hussars History.  Would it be asking too much for you to scan the pages related to Nery for me. 

 I am especially interested in the route to and the withdrawal after the battle.  The British accounts simply say the Division was routed, which I do not believe to be correct.  These men made an all night ride on the night of 31.8, fought the battle and at least part of the Division spent two nights in the saddle without sleep.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated
 

Thanks,

Randy Gilbert

At present I do not have any possibility of scanning. I will see if I can get hold of someone who might be able to do this. Otherwise I will have to type in the text myself. It is briefly mentioned in the regimental history of the regiment., which was published in 1931. A further book about the regiment was published in 1991 by H.W. Faerber.
In the book by H.W.Faerber there is very little mention of the action at Néry on p.136.*
See also my other posts under Historical Museum in Wandsbek and Mecklenburgisches Dragoner-Regiment 17.

Does it need to be scanned? Modern camera's take pretty good pictures of documents these days.

Jpeg from a camera would be fine.  What I am most interested in is what route they took to Nery after crossing the oise at Thourotte and where they went after the battle.  The 17th Brigade went through the forest of Compeigne,  while the other two brigades "went around it to the west."

Action at Néry on p. 136 by H.W.Faerber (1991)

* "Demnach konnte - wie schon 1870 - die Versorgung mit dem ungestümen Tempo der kämpfenden Truppe nicht mithalten. Doch der stürmische Vormarsch barg auch andere Gefahren, die den Krieg für die Husaren beinahe vorzeitig beendet hätten. So stellte die 4. Kavallerie-Division - und damit auch das Regiment der Wandsbeker Husaren - am 1. September 1914 bei Néry an der Oise einen britischen Verband zum Gefecht und ritt dabei eine der letzten Kavallerieattacken. Allerdings mit sehr fragwürdigem Verlauf!
Wie sich später herausstellte, handelte es sich bei dem Gegner um die (britische) 1.Kavallerie-Brigade, bestehend aus zwei Dragoner- und einem Husarenregiment sowie einer berittenen Batterie. Dieser Verband war von den Deutschen im Biwak überrascht und unverzüglich angegriffen worden. Es gelang den Briten aber, in kürzester Zeit erhebliche Verstärkungen heranzuführen und damit die deutschen Kräfte in Bedrängnis zu bringen. Trotz hoher Verluste des Gegners geriet die 4. Division sogar in Gefahr, eiengeschlossen zu werden und nur unter großen Anstrengungen gelang es, dieser Bedrohung auszuweichen und die Division schließlich am 3. September bei Droiselles wieder zusammenzuführen."
