1912 pattern boards, Presumably once the property of Obermusikmeister Franz Mickley of Großherzogliches Artilleriekorps, 1. Großherzoglich Hessisches Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr. 25.

Glenn ;
The last post on this is old .
I hope that you read this .
Where do you find your reference
on the Music Meister of the regiments ?
I really like the shoulder straps of the musicians .
I have a pair for Mecklenburg G R 89 in the 1912 pattern
and a pair for Baden Grenadier Regt 110 in the older
pre 1912 pattern
so of course I would like to know the names of
the former owners / wearers
Thanks
Steve

Steve,

just saw this post. A particularly useful reference to Imperial German army bandsmen is the directory of military musicians published by Arthur Parrhysius;

Militär-Musiker-Adreßbuch für das Deutsche Reich. I am only aware of two editions - 1899 and 1913.

Interestingly GR 89 had two bands; one for I. and III. battalions (Mecklenburg-Schwerin) and II./GR 89 (Mecklenburg-Strelitz) had it's own band also. Consequently there were two bandmasters on the establishment of this regiment.

In 1913, the two gentlemen were:

Obermusikmeister Otto Frommann (I., III.)

Musikdirektor Hugo Hoffmann (II.)

The cypher, Schwerin or Strelitz will narrow it down to one or the other.

Obermusikmeister Max Vollmer of GR 110 had been that regiment's bandmaster since 1890 and was still in post in 1913 so he is the only candidate for that set of boards.

Regards
Glenn
