  1. Just found this at § 88, sub para 1 of the same regulations: Following demobilization, the Soldbücher of those in receipt of monthly salaries (Gehaltsempfänger), i.e. officers, the pay books were to be closed down and returned to the corps intendance branch, stored for a time determined by regulations and then destroyed. Although I don't have a copy to hand of the peacetime pay regulations, one can probably extrapolate that the same thing happened when an officer retired or died in service. Regards Glenn
  2. Chaps, I am no expert on Soldbücher but I can draw your attention to the paragraph in the "Kriegs-Besoldungs-Vorschrift" of 1914. § 55. Soldbücher, sub para 1 states that All officers, officials and soldiers received a Soldbuch on entering a wartime unit if this had not already happened in peacetime. Regards Glenn
  3. Claudio, as Paul states, General Wallenberg was a Prussian and this bar is clearly also Prussian (although not General Wallenberg's). The nearest match that I can find is Hauptmann (later Oberstleutnant) Walter v. Rohrscheidt who was serving in the Prussian War Ministry at the beginning of the war and later with Infanterie-Regiment 329. His known awards were: RAO4, BMV4XKr, SA3aX, WK3X, ÖEK3K, ÖM3K. Regards Glenn
  4. Andy, I'm not sure his attachment to the Seminar for oriental languages is of any significance. He attended the seminar prior to a planned transfer to the Schutztruppen für Kamerun. It would appear that this never happened as both his transfer and posting back to Grenadier-Regiment Nr. 5 are published in the Militär-Wochenblatt by 3rd August 1914. Regards Glenn
  5. I think you mixed up the place names? Besztercebánya = Banská Bystrica = Neusohl. FJB 21 was at Besztercebánya in 1868. The commander was Oberstlieutenant Ferdinand Ritter von Perger (1823-1890) Regards Glenn
  6. Roman, his biography from the Offizier-Stammliste of 1. GRzF plus his portrait. Regards Glenn
  7. Paul, he was commissioned into Train-Bataillon Nr. 4 as a Leutnant der Reserve with a Patent of seniority of 22.4.12. Regards Glenn
  8. The Generaladjutant is Feldmarschalleutnant Zdenko Prinz von Lobkowitz, Herzog zu Raudnitz. Regards Glenn
  9. Hermann, he is wearing a Prussian general officers' Überrock with the epaulettes removed. Regards Glenn
  10. David, Füsilier-Regiment Nr. 73 became the tradition holder of the former Hanoverian 7. Infanterie-Regiment. Regards Glenn
  11. Hi Jon, Karl and Konstantin respectively. Regards Glenn
  12. Chris, this from the "Personal-Nachrichten des Heeresabwickelungsamts Bayern für das Jahr 1919" (Edition 30 of 16 June 1919 with effect 30 May 1919) gazetting Felix Pienßel's Patent of promotion to Leutnant der Reserve as of 13 March 1917. Regards Glenn
  13. Jon, I don't immediately recognise him and without any indication of place, an undecorated field officer wearing an Überrock is almost hopeless. Regards Glenn
  14. Andreas, another Dr. Metz but not the St. Goarshausen medical officer. Stabsarzt d.L. Dr. Metz of Landwehr-Regiment Nr. 87 (Nassau/Oberlahnstein) then Landwehr-Bezirk Oberlahnstein died on 13 January 1891. Regards Glenn
