  1. Andy, I answered over at Feldgrau but for the users here, the officer in the second picture is Flügeladjutant (ADC) Oberst Otto von Estorff. He is shown conversing with Greek Colonel Karakalos at Görlitz railway station on 28 September 1916. Regards Glenn
  2. It is captioned at alamy as follows: "Parade of the X Corps in 1907 (in the second row from left to right) Prinz Eitel Friedrich, Kronprinz Wilhelm, Prinz Oskar, Prinz Albert von Belgien. Regards Glenn
  3. Hi Ian, not sure why you could not see him in the Ehrenrangliste. He is on page 30 as commander of 1. Garde-Feldartillerie-Brigade. Friedrich Wilhelm Frhr. v. Buddenbrock (1859-1944). Born 31 August 1859 at Thorn, a graduate of the Prussian cadet corps, he was commissioned into the 2. Garde-Feldartillerie-Regiment on 15 April 1878. Promoted to Premier-Lieutenant with a Patent of 17 April 1888 and an Hauptmann on 2 September 1892. He was appointed as the battery commander of the 2nd horse battery on 18 October 1892. On the 1st of October 1899 he was transferred to the staff of Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr. 6 followed by his promotion to Major and assignment as a detachment command in FAR 9 on 18 January 1901. He was promoted to Oberstleutnant on 20 July 1907. He was assigned as the provisional commander of FAR 4 on 20 February 1909 and confirmed as commander on 24 March 1909. Promoted to Oberst on 3 October 1910. He was appointed as commander of 25. Feldartillerie-Brigade which he assumed on 18 April 1913 and finally as commander of 1. Garde-Feldartillerie-Brigade on promotion to Generalmajor on 1 October 1913. He appears to have commanded the brigade until July 1916. He retired as a char. Generalleutnant (11.8.16). Regards Glenn
  4. From his entry in the IR 78 Offizier-Stammliste. He left the navy on 31 July 1908 and re-entered the Prussian army the following day. Regards Glenn
  5. Korvettenkapitän Bastian's 1924 award of the SW2b is shown in the 1925 Swedish State Calendar . Regards Glenn
  6. Andreas, unfortunately the 1922 Reichsmarine Rangliste only lists his EK1 and Dienstauszeichnungskreuz! Regards Glenn
  7. I too am rather reluctant to respond to requests containing a fragment of information and/or containing disfiguration. Glenn
  8. Portraits of the two gentleman from the same source as above. Herr v. Stockmeyer, of course in a post-war portrait. Regards Glenn.
  9. He was a bit tricky. Prior to 1902 he is listed as Roques-Maumont but following that as Eckert gen. von Roques-Maumont. He retired in 1907 and unusually as a former regular officer, his wartime service is not listed in the Ehrenrangliste. Consequently I went back to about 1895 where I found him as a Sekonde-Lieutenant in Grenadier-Regiment Nr. 123. He is listed thereafter until his retirement in the Prussian Rangliste. I found him again in a "Stellenbesetzung" of mobile Württemberg troops in 1915 in LIR 120 and again in the Württemberg Militär-Verordnungsblatt of 1916. He falls off the radar after that. This portrait of him as a Sekonde-Lieutenant in GR 123 in the late nineties appears on the Landesarchiv Baden-Württemberg site albeit wrongly named as Roques-Naumont. Regards Glenn
  10. Promoted to char. Major on 14. January 1916 as the commander of the 1st replacement battalion of Füsilier-Regiment Nr. 40. Regards Glenn
  11. Hello, Arthur Eckert gen. von Roques-Maumont was a retired Württemberg infantry captain (13.9.06) who was recalled for service in WW1. In 1915 he was wounded with Landwehr-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 120. Regards Glenn
  12. Leutnant Bogislaw v. Studnitz (1888-1943) was the later Wehrmacht Generalleutnant. He died in an accident in Greece in 1943. Regards Glenn
  13. Nr. 3 is Leutnant d.R. Ernst Luyken. Nr. 5 is Leutnant d.R. Waldschmidt. Regards Glenn
  14. chaps, he left Prussian service on 3 November 1911 to enter Turkish military service, hence the gap in the army list between 1911-1914. His entry in the Offizier-Stammliste of IR 42 shows that he assumed command of IR 42 on 29 October 1914 although it does not differentiat between temporary and permanent command details. His further wartime appointments are shown as: 1.7.17: Leader of the reserve officer candidate course at Warthelager 1.3.18: Commander of IR 402 and finally commander of 31. Reserve-Infanterie-Brigade from 1 May 1918. 8.9.20: Charakter as Generalmajor. Regards Glenn
