Photograph of WW1 German Officer
I bought this picture on my previously mentioned London trip. It was thrown into a box along with a load of other military photos, but I thought this chap was particularly striking! I've been told by posters on the War Relics forum that he has the ribbon for an Iron Cross 2nd class - which would be nice when I get the chance to pick one up and frame it alongside the photo. I'm assuming he's an officer, but someone also mentioned that the braid on the right shoulder means something but not exactly sure what. If anyone has any info they could add to the above it would be much appreciated!!
