    Default German/Prussian M1910 Help with Translation

    I recently acquired a WW1 German/Prussian private purchase M1910 Captains Tunic and hat. Although there is no identifying names etc. on the tunic the officers hat that came with it are a couple names in it. Landst Olbrisch, and under the sweat band was the name “Balan.”
    A search on Ancestry WW1 German Files found a Major George Balan of the 31st Infantry Regiment/Magdeburg. For Major Balan there are wound records for August 19,1916; May 5,1917 and September 1,1917.
    As far as the written words Landst Olbrisch, it may be an area , street or maybe a name? I found one listing for a Lt. Olbrisch with an Artillery Regiment Number 5 in the Prussian Officers directory on Ancestory.
    If I could get these correct translations, and any other information, records on Balan and Olbrisch , it would be greatly appreciated.

    Nice stuff.
    But I think you better ask on the GMIC forum, they are quiet good at this research.

    Thanks Kris. I checked out the GMIC Forum. I did not know about it. It seems it could definitely be helpful.

    They both look fantastic. Nice set!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    The cockades on the cap are enlisted versions, not for an officer. Are you certain the cap & tunic belong together?

    I'm not 100% sure. That's the way I got it.
