Cherelle Posted 17 February , 2018 Share Posted 17 February , 2018 Hello. I'd like help confirming/identifying rank (if possible), and the medals/badges etc that my Great Uncle Willie Keller is wearing. Unfortunately I don't know much about him, other than his name Willie Keller and the family was from Chemnitz. I do not know his date of birth or death, but my grandpa was born in 1886 and I believe Willie was his older brother. I see he has a U-boat badge, and I believe the smaller badge shows two crossed swords? I'm wondering if it's possible to determine rank, other than he appears to be a low ranking officer... what is signified by the badges on his cap? Ideally I would like to be able to find his military record. I'm hoping that record might list a date of birth or death. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
