  1. Hello Glenn, This is truly outstanding. If I may say - most respectfully - "The Old Hands" like your good self, are demonstrating that there is a "better way" of coaxing out the essential information. Thank you for the information and the research lessons. I appreciate it very, very much! with kindest regards, Tim
  2. Hello Dave, Wow! This is wonderful information and immensely appreciated. You've just carried the ball across the finish line at the moment I thought that the proverbial wall had been hit. Many, many thanks! With kindest regards, Tim
  3. This figure of a soldier of IR 59 was presented to Major Freiherr von Schimmelmann by the Officers of IR 59, I believe, on the occasion of his departure from the Regiment c. 1904/1905. I have been able to (subject to correction) chart his Service from c. 1879 with IR 78 to his Service with IR 59 (c. 1894 to c.1904/5) as Hptm and Major, via the Ranglisten. From there he went to L. Bez.Sangerhausen ((1906-1909) and in 1910 to IR 78 as ObstLt. There are many gaps in his story that I would like to close. Assistance is requested in determining his: -full name -place and date of birth -place and date of death -Service after 1910 including Service in WWI and, if possible, any notable achievements or anecdotes to flesh out his story -Awards and Decorations for Service -other information, etc. Below, I have enclosed a photo of the figure presented to Major Freiherr von Schimmelmann, and an extract from the 1907 Rangiste showing Seniority and Awards up to that time. In brief summary, also, are the notes from the Ranglisten that I was able to relate to his Service. Any additional information or guidance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. As this is my first post, please bear with me. Thank you.
