ENLISTED KAISERLICHE MARINE SAILOR’S PROMOTION PATENT

SKU: 13-988

$75.00

This is an interesting promotion patent for an enlisted Kaiserliche Marine sailor. He was promoted to a Machinist 2nd Class effective 23 December 1918, some six weeks after WW I ended! The handwritten document measures 8 ¼” x 11 ¼,” and was issued to a man whose last name was Rettick. It shows he served aboard Torpedo Boots S 247 and S 210. The promotion was actually approved prior to 11 November 1918, but apparently took awhile to wend its way through the Kaiserliche Marine’s bureaucracy.
