Hi All,

hope your are all well,

Attached 3 pictures of my wife`s ancestors originated from Poland and living in Leipzig, Germany - MUSCATBLAT Max, Herman and Alfred.
Appreciate your help advising the ranks, units and whatever other information you might find.
I have posted this in AxisForum and got advised to ask here,

Hi Zvika,

here my try - please see explanation on the pictures.
On the last picture I can`t see the shoulder strap, so I can`t make out a unit.

In the casualty list there are three entries:
2x Alfred and 1x Max Muscatblatt (at the end with double "tt" ! ).
In the case of Alfred with the entry for the Grenadier Rgt. No. 101:

Kgl. Sächs. Schützen (Füsilier)-Regiment Prinz Georg Nr. 108ütz.R_108
Kgl. Sächs. 1. (Leib-)Grenadier-Regiment Nr.100

On the shoulder strap from the Flying Corps is a small number - but unfortunately it is not readable.
Are there any notes on the back of the photo (written, stamp, etc.)??
Best regards,

Addendum: the list of casualties also includes injured and wounded soldiers!
If it is Alfred in picture A with the wounded badge, could the last picture perhaps show him in the uniform of Grenadier Regiment No.100?
- leicht verwundet = slightly wounded
- page before: 12th Company (Grenadier-Regiment Nr.100) - fought 8 to 13 March 1915:

... upps - Gefreiter in the list of casualties 1915 - I think it`s an other Muscatblatt. Sorry! ; - )

Antwort von Jens am 19.10.2020 - 01:25
... arggh - sorry, it is too late in the evening - here a new picture B with the correct shoulder strap!
I will stop now before I make any more stupid mistakes! ; - )
Best regards Jens

thank you very much for your extensive answer. I will consult with a relative German origin.
Yes, the MUSCATBLATT (1 or 2 T`s...) were born in Jena. so these is the right record
will need to examine the pages better. I understand the OCR do read the German writings...
Thanks again

The Flieger-Bataillon (Flying Corps) must be a N°1.
The 3rd company of prussian Flieger-Bataillon 1 was a saxon one.
It also could be a 6, because the Flieger-Ersatz-Abteilung N°6 was from Großenhain (Saxony)

I#ve seen a grave from ALFRED MUSCATBLATT today in Leipzig, Neuer Israelitischer Friedhof.
