  1. Chris, as I understand the situation, it was pretty much automatic when the individual reached the age limit for each levy of Landwehr service. However, an individual reserve officer could with the permission of his regimental commander remain as such always assuming he would (in peacetime) put in the necessary training obligations as required. Consequently one could encounter aged reserve officers and relatively youthful Landwehr officers. In the case of your officer, I am assuming at the time of his (voluntary) transfer into Landwehr service he had already reached the prescribed age for the 2nd levy. Regards Glenn
  2. My pleasure, he is flanked by General Staff officers Oberstleutnant Friedrich (Ritter von) Haack and Major Eugen Trautmann. Regards Glenn
  3. Chris, this from page 500 of the "large" ILR regimental history: Regards Glenn
  4. My pleasure. Unfortunately none of your Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 120 candidates appear to have been awarded the WF3bX either. Incidentally, Lt. Schultz was the later Eichenlaubträger and Wehrmacht Generalmajor. Regards Glenn
  5. Presumably this chap as seen here: http://erwin-emerich.de/reichsfreiherr-von-rassler-gamerschwang-brustbild Regards Glenn
  6. He does not appear to have been awarded a Württemberg Friedrich Order Knight's Cross as no such award to him is gazetted in the Württemberg Militär-Verordnungsblatt. He was promoted to Oberleutnant d.R. on 27.4.15 and is still shown with UR 20 in the field as per the Stellenbesetzung of May 1915. He was serving with Train-Ersatz-Abteilung Nr. 13 in Ludwigsburg per a Stellenbesetzung of XIII. Army Corps home command in 1917. Promoted to Rittmeister d.R. on 28.4.18 Regards Glenn
  7. Hello, he is an East German (NVA) "Offiziersschule" in his third year of instruction. Regards Glenn
  8. Indeed, although the interwar Reichsheer lists shows him with swords to this award. Perhaps a mistake? Regards Glenn
  9. I think it has to be the then Major Memmenthey although the lack of swords to the Albrechtsorden is surprising. Regards Glenn
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
