This is a block of four aviation-related postage stamps from Hungary. Each is different. All were issued for stamp collectors in honor of the VII. Postal Congress held in Budapest in 1967.
This is a high-quality, printed musical program for a performance that took place 17 January 1909. Kaiser Alexander Garde-Grenadier-Regiment Nr 1 is mentioned on the program. This elite regiment was founded in 1814. It was garrisoned in Berlin, where it was a part of the Garde-Korps. The other regiment mentioned is Grenadier-Regiment König Karl (5. Württembergerisches) Nr 123. This regiment was founded in 1799 and based in Ulm. It was attached to the XIII. Armeekorps. The program has a number of selections, including one by Richard Wagner. It is most interesting.
This is a militärpaß for a man born in 1889 in Leipzig, Saxony. He entered (or re-entered) the army in 1916. He was assigned to 4. Infanterie-Regiment Nr 103. As we thumb through the militärpaß, we see that he demonstrated his proficiency with the Mauser rifle. We also see his regiment’s unit stamp. After his service in this regiment, he served in a Prussian Flieger-Abteilung. The militärpaß contains many interesting entries. It is housed in a cover. It is a fine militärpaß for a Saxon soldier.
This is an interesting for a young soldier from Flieger Ersatz Abteilung Nr 7. He was attached to Kompagnie Nr 3, located in Braunschweig. He entered the military in 1917. His was a training reserve unit that assembled men for the re-assignment to other locations at the front. We see that he served in numerous Prussian units, as well as a Saxon aviation unit.
I'm Kenneth (Ken) J. Greenfield, currently of New Port Richey, Florida, located on the West Coast of Florida in the Tampa Bay area. I started out as a collector of Imperial German Militaria, particularly items dealing with the Imperial German Air Service in the early 1960's. After more than forty years of avid collecting, I began to sell a few items to upgrade my collection and help finance my collecting "habit." I attended militaria shows, both to buy and sell. I wanted to spend more time at home and less traveling for the national companies that I had worked for; so, starting my own business seemed like an attractive alternative. I like nothing better than talking with others about militaria, and introducing newcomers to the joys of owning a "piece of history."
