ICE stands for In Case of Emergency – loosely translated means in the event of an accident. At ICE hides an ordinary phone number to the next usually family or friends for persons who should be informed about the incident first. However, ICE is not just for this, to inform about the accident or other sudden and unforeseen situations although this is very important to use – the number of ICE is also a gateway to knowledge for themselves rescuers. Thanks to the fast contact with loved ones, the rescuer can get a lot of important information, even about allergies, taking medications or chronic diseases. With effective communication, increasing the chance of peeling a good and secure the provision of medical assistance.Let’s move on to the dogtags this, in turn, military IDs, which first appeared in the US Army. But already during World War I army dogtags become duty also in the armies of other countries – including army has its counterparts. For many years the dog tags minted on the model of dog tags are worn also by civilians.

The answer to this question is simple – to increase their security. Of course plate with stamped quote or other meaningless message will not help rescuers to identify you, but stamped dog tag with personally identifiable information, social security number, said outdoor ICE numbers on plaques can knock out a few numbers, marking them in order, and so on a set of the most practical. Sami rescuers admit that upon arrival at the scene of the accident did not have time to search for wallets or phones – after all, every second counts. Dog but we carry on the neck and chest, at a critical point, which always reaches a lifeguard. As a result, we gain precious seconds and pass on important information to people who might make good and sometimes even life-giving thing.Why card in your wallet or telephone number ICE is not always a good solution? One argument already quoted – it’s about time that you arrive at the scene of the accident is not. The second issue, phones are often blocked. Moreover, the current smartphones are quite fragile, so when the case is damaged. Punched plates while they are indestructible – stamped data does not wear off, and the plates themselves are skin-friendly and do not rust. These arguments suggest to wear dog tags we recommend only those struck with contact information and personnel.

engraving dog tagsA gift that will remain a memorial to his life? Often searching for such a gift, we go to a jeweler. There, among the many models of rings, necklaces and watches we try to choose something special, which will remind us of the recipient’s person. With the help comes to us the opportunity to engrave the inscription on jewelry.

Dog tags engraving is one of the oldest ways of decorating. His story does not reach all jewelry. Even primitive people they left their traces, plowing into the rock, pieces of wood, or even animal bones. For historians it is primarily a valuable source of information about our ancestors, and for jewelery additional information about the engraving. Over the years they changed both the methods and tools. Today, thanks to the development of technology, we can engrave using a computer. This process does not take as much time as before, and thanks to him we have ensured a much more accurate refinement of detail. Through all these years, however, it remained the same meaning and significance of the engraving. It allows you to leave a souvenir, an established tool on a piece of metal.

Hand engraving allows to decorate the object truly unique pattern, so that it will gain in value. On the other hand engraving using a computer-controlled machine makes it possible to perform pattern with precision, which can not be expected from the manual labor. On the other hand, we expose the gift repeatability – the same pattern can affect many identical key chains and dog tags. In recent years, it enjoys great popularity also engraving pens. It’s a good gift for example. On the occasion of graduation or promotion.

AC1 SentinelThe creators of the game World of Tanks helped one of the seven survivors tanks AC1 Sentinel return home, or to Australia. The unusual vehicle was transported from a private kolejkcji in Texas to a museum in Cairnes.

What is so unusual about Sentinel ? This is the only tank, mass-produced in Australia. In the days of World War II, the United Kingdom was not able to provide their colony deliveries of heavy equipment. In the face of a potential Japanese invasion of Australia built 65 tanks Sentinel, based on the British Crusader tank.

AC1 was armed with a two-pound cannon and powered by three engines V8 production Cadillac. The whole weighed 28 tonnes and although it could withstand the battle with German tanks, a challenge with Japanese vehicles should have a check. At least in theory, because the invasion never happened. Sentinel will soon appear in the game World of Tanks and World of Tanks Blitz where you will be able to try it out on the digital battlefield.

Missing German soldiers…

In 1993, the “People’s League”, which was created after the First World War in Germany and had been banned by Hitler, his activities in Russia developed. At that time the activists had already found and buried the remains of nearly a half million Wehrmacht soldiers on the territory of Belgium, France and Yugoslavia under the leadership of Mathäas Gurskij.Today we are aware that the Germans who fought against the Soviet Union, even soldiers and to some extent victims of the regime were. Whatever one may take it well, they were their oath faithfully.Some years ago a military Memorial was opened behind the village Rossoschki in Volgograd. Many German families come Rossoschki, for burial place of their fathers, brothers and grandfathers, whose names are inscribed on 246 plaques. The monuments and the road to the cemetery were built for the money an Austrian citizen. Similar cemeteries plans to found the “national union” even at Novorossiysk and at Kursk.In the cemetery at Rossoschki rest around 30 thousand soldiers who once fought on this soil. Some of them bite with the teeth in every inch of the frozen ground and fought to the last man for their home. The others were uninvited come with the rifle, which had given them a terrible idea in the hand, and completely poisoned with a human nature strange thoughts about our “diversity”. This was a tragedy for both nations. Today Soviet and German soldiers have found reconciliation in brother graves in the dry earth of Volgograd.

A missing soldier…

I spread this information with the hope that there are perhaps descendants and other relatives of this German soldier, whose remains rest in Russian soil.This brand recognition has been found by the investigators in the years 1988-1990 north of the village Orlovka near Volgograd. Since both halves of the brand have been preserved, I have to conclude that the soldier who owned this brand, is registered as missing. One can assume yet that the soldier in the battle of Stalingrad in late 1942 – has fallen early 1943rdThe inscription of the identification tag is:Number: 1845Agency: 2nd Light Replacement Battery 214Blood А.With the publication of this information, I expect that there are people in Germany who are ready to assist in finding the person of the fallen soldiers, perhaps even his relatives, to give them this recognition mark as the last memory of her father, grandfather or brother Miss.To determine the identity of the soldiers, one can turn to the WASt. The German service (WASt) is in possession of a list of ALL dog tags, and can certainly notify the relevant members.In addition, you can, as I have been known to also contact the , if there are such, will be interesting to learn where their father or grandfather has fallen in this war. I know quite well the feeling that people feel in such a situation. I myself was for many years in search of the grave of my grandfather, who fought in the ranks of the Red Army and was killed on 26 July 1944 in the rayon of the city Bialystok. I can still clearly remember how my heart was racing when I received the official document from the Polish Red Cross with the Notification of the location of the funeral, as I then visited the city Bialystok, and the tears could not hold back when I stood at the grave of my grandfather, whom I knew only by the

The German dog tag…

March 8th, 2016

In Germany Dog Tags were first at the beginning of the war 1870/1871 Germany Kaiser Wilhelm I. introduced. The narration by the proposal of a Berlin should Artisans have come, the more sons had in the military at that time. Initially yet borne partly self-made brands. Full coverage were indicia However, until the First World War, then still without separating slot and full name, introduced. The experiences on the battlefields of World War I, where soldiers often were mutilated beyond recognition and / or months not recovered in no man’s land were, showed the necessity of these dog tags. Even today be Remains of soldiers found that can be identified due to their identification tag.

Since the 1920s, was at Brands Drain slots mounted. these the brand can be divided in the middle. The upper half remained with the fallen, the lower first went to the unit, then the Defence Administration. Both halves are identical labels, the top has in usually two holes to a band pass to lead and reassign the brand. The bottom has a “overflow hole” the lower halves of brand fallen to line up.

The marks were usually prepared from aluminum or zinc, in some cases, from Stainless steel. In Austria, before the introduction of the soldiers a capsule as part of the adjustment supported, wherein a legitimacy sheet was kept protected from the weather, worn. The stamp with the following data – 7th Panzer RGT.5 – Nr. 21 0 means: 7th Company Panzer Regiment 5 – Register # 94 – Blood Group 0..


The term “field training regiment” took place because the basic training – as opposed to recent Usance – did not take place in the Reich, but in occupied enemy territory. Units that were exposed to an increased risk of capture, such. As border guard units or paratroopers, or where in general at the capture unit should be veiled, were only numbers on their dog tags. It was intended that each soldier all four Military Branches had to wear a brand. Further Members of the RAD (Reich Labor Service), the National Socialist Motor Corps (NSKK), the Organisation Todt, the police station staff, in war factories, Volkssturm, Fire News and- administrative staff, technical and emergency assistance POWs. From July 1942 was also the Customs Border Patrol dog tags. Key for the EKM is the book by Jean Höidal.

A metal brand that is worn in the war of all soldiers on a string around his neck.It is used to determine the personality with dead and wounded.The history of EM begins with a legend. A Berlin craftsman whose sonsin Prus. Army served, is an identity brand have established that he his sons with theField gave. Based on this brand should, if anything happened to them, to clarify their identity.Selbiger craftsmen to this brand the Prussian. War Department for introduction into theArmy have suggested and helped himself while the comparison with the already knownDog tax stamp.Of course that was a mistake, because how could one expect a Prussian soldier, a”Dog tag” to wear.King William I is said to have very excited about such a request. Finally, he hadbut be convinced of the benefits of such an identity mark and their introductionin the Prussian. Army agreed – if the legend.The royal Prussian.. General Dr. F. Loeffler mentioned in his 1868 published book on the”Prussian military medical service and its reform” first time “a Recognoscirungsmarke”…. “Nevertheless, it is the konstatierten by the North German Confederation by the experience of 1866Needs by formal introduction of a special Recognoscirungsmarkebe met. In the mobilization of each soldier will receive a sheet mark, whichis worn on a cord around the neck (on the naked body) and which with the labelthe military unit and the number which the holder of the register in his military unit, providedis. “…In the 1896 published book on the “armies and navies of the present” is mentioned that alreadythe war of 1866 against Austria the identity marks of soldiers in superstitious fear of deathwere thrown away. Need 8 months after the Battle of Hradec Králové were of thethere fallen Prussia only 429 are identified.After Theodor Fontane were in this battle but 99 Offz. And 8,794 man Prus. armylike.It is doubtful whether the brand achieved during the campaign of 1866 in the entirePrus. Army was used, probably she was carried by only a few troops.During the negotiations of the Geneva Committee of the Red Cross had been repeatedly discussedbeen that one means of determining the identity of heavy dead and woundedmust see.In any case, the authenticator must already during the war in 1870-71 in the Prussian. armyhave been in use, because there are reports that one of the dead soldiers, the identification tagand paybooks have lost.In the “History of the clothing and equipment of the Royal. Prussian Army in the years1806-1878 “Mila says of the identification tag:”§ 593. Behufs better establish the identity of remaining in battle or unconsciousencountered wounded receives the Ausmarsch the field (according to Section 110 of the Regulation onMedical service of the army in the field of 29 April 1869) each soldier one on the naked bodyaround the neck on a cord to wear plate mark, which with the owner of the registerthe military unit accompanying number and provided with the name of the military unit itselfis; e.g. -75- Rh.Cür.R. 8 – 2.E. (75 = personal number, Rh. = Rhine, CUER. = Kürassier,R. = Regiment, 8th = number of the regiment, 2.E. = 2nd Squadron, d. Verf.) Originally,the brand “Rekognitionsmarke” named and had the shape of a rectangle; the War Sanitätsordungfrom January 10, 1878 gave them the name “dog tags” and an ellipticalForm.”With safety so it can be assumed that these brands already in 1869 in the Prussian. armywas and it was issued in the mobilization in 1870 to the soldiers.Goods on the identification tag initially only the abbreviated designation and formation or unitsmashed the serial number under which the regimental matrikel the respective Personaliendeswere registered carrier, we went in 1914 by this scheme from.

What data not worth put on dog tags

December 3rd, 2015
by andrzej

Dog_TagDog tags is a piece of plaque around your neck with embossed data of the person who wears it. His task was to enable the identification of a soldier who died or was seriously injured. The most common figures that were included on this plate are:


1.Name and Surname

2.Soldier Number

3.Miltary Unit

4.Blood Group



Lately, dog tags more often go from military to civilian areas. They begin to be treated as a mere decorative element. Many people wanting to keep the “military” and “utility” nature of the dog tag, affix your personal information in the hope that it may be useful to the emergency services. This action is often not only pointless (personal data of the patient is the last thing they worry about rescue units to provide assistance at the time), but it can be downright harmful. Not once, not twice met with people who have placed on his dogtag data such as:


1.Name and Surname


3.Security Number

4.Blood Group


I missed this statement still only a PIN to their credit card. In case of loss / theft of such Immortelle, our private data can get to the “black-market” circuit and be used for example in the production of forged identity cards. Placing blood group also does not make sense (beyond the aesthetic value), because no doctor will give blood without making the crossword. Equally worthless are all kinds of information cards issued by the blood centers. Before any transfusion must be carried out crossing the blood to determine the appropriate group. Much more help services when put on nieśmiertelniku number of ICE (in case emergency). This is the telephone number of the person to be contacted in case of an accident. Sam I wear a dog tag, which is stamped information:


1.Jon Snow

2.ICE Number

3.Phone Number 1

4.Phone Number 2


Well to put at least two numbers for two different people. Having carry such a number (whether minted on nieśmiertelniku whether as a suitable card in your wallet), you can quickly determine our identity and to inform the family if we were involved in some unfortunate event. Similarly, you can put information on certain diseases, such as diabetes or epilepsy (although mostly these people wear special bracelets).
