Recommended Posts

Purchased over 40 years ago, objects from the estate of an officer in

2. Ermländisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 151, stationed in Sensburg and Bischofsburg, XX. Armee-Korps.
The Regiment was raised in 1897.

All of the items apart from the helmet, sword and Feldbinde belonged to the same officer. The highest rank he reached was Oberstleutnant, as can be seen on one pair of shoulder straps. There are further shoulder straps of Leutnant - Hauptmann, however the stars have been removed at some time, the Epaulettes are for a Leutnant.
The effects were supplied by military outfitter Martin Ucko,  Königsberg i./Pr., Französische Straße, both boxes have the name of the outfitter.
This is an older photograph taken in the early 1980s.

Wearer could have been Oberstleutnant von Oertzen or Oberstleutnant Dorsch.
