I recently found this photo of

Upon close examination, he appears
to be wearing a Masonic pin on his collar.

The inscription (as translated by Robert Froetschl):
"Your father when he was young... 1848"
(Robert mentions that this was the year of the German revolution, which was put down by the Prussian Army.)
