Information Question
Category: Photo Identification
Family Surname: Philipsborn
Country: Germany
Town: Berlin
  This is a photo of Arthur Philipsborn, born in Kiel, Germany, in 1883. He settled in Berlin and married in 1920. I would like to know if anyone can identify the uniform, military affiliation, if any, and a possible date. His property was confiscated and he escaped with his family, at first to Denmark (1933) and finally to the US (1938). He was a physician (psychiatrist) and I wonder if the uniform could be that of a World War I medic.
