    Crüwell, Ludwig

    Here is an example from his personnel file:
  2. Below are casualty numbers for the Bavarian RIRs given in Busche's Formationsgeschichte der Deutschen Infanterie. Bay. RIR 12 seems to have had significantly more casualties than the others. b.RIR 1 - 53 Offz., 2700 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 2 - 61 Offz., 3211 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 3 - ? b.RIR 4 - 49 Offz., 2824 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 5 - ca. 3200 Offz., Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 6 - 60 Offz., 2348 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 7 - 63 Offz., 2622 u. Mannsch. b.RIR 8 - ca. 2350 Offz., Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 10 - 61 Offz., 3075 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 11 - ? b.RIR 12 - 178 Offz., 9688 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 13 - 84 Offz., 4600 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 14 - ? b.RIR 15 - ? b.RIR 16 - 78 Offz., 3676 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 17 - 38 Offz., 3676 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 18 - 41 Offz., 2232 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 19 - 27 Offz., 1730 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 20 - ? b.RIR 21 - 74 Offz., 3600 Uffz. u. Mannsch. b.RIR 22 - ? b.RIR 23 - 37 Offz., 2138 Uffz. u. Mannsch.
  3. Here is a break-down for the Ritterkreuz of the Militär-Max-Joseph-Orden. The ILR is at the top of the list. After that, the regular and reserve infantry regiments, as well as Jäger, are pretty mixed. It's a bit surprising that only 2 of 140 awards went to Landwehr infantry regiments. Infanterie/Jäger (140) Sonstiges u. höhere Stäbe (57) Feldartillerie (25) Fliegertruppe (11) Kavallerie (7) Fußartillerie (4) Kaiserliche Marine (4) Pioniere (4) Nachrichtentruppe (1) Infanterie/Jäger (in order of number of awards) 11 - ILR 8 - 3.b.IR 7 - 4.b.IR 6 - 1.b.IR 5 - b.RIR 18 4 - 11.b.IR 4 - b.RIR 1 4 - b.RIR 12 4 - b.RIR 2 4 - b.RJB 1 3 - 16.b.IR 3 - 18.b.IR 3 - 2.b.JB 3 - 10.b.IR 3 - 24.b.IR 3 - b.RIR 10 3 - b.RIR 13 3 - b.RIR 5 2 - 1.b.JB 2 - 17.b.IR 2 - 19.b.IR 2 - 22.b.IR 2 - 23.b.IR 2 - 6.b.IR 2 - 9.b.IR 2 - b.RIR 15 2 - b.RIR 20 2 - b.RIR 21 2 - b.RIR 22 2 - b.RIR 23 2 - b.RIR 3 2 - b.RIR 6 2 - b.RIR 7 2 - b.RIR 8 2 - JägR 3 1 - 13.b.IR 1 - 15.b.IR 1 - 2.b.IR 1 - 20.b.IR 1 - 21.b.IR 1 - 26.b.IR 1 - 27.b.IR 1 - 31.b.IR 1 - 32.b.IR 1 - 5.b.IR 1 - 7.b.IR 1 - 8.b.IR 1 - b.BrigEB 5 1 - b.JägR 1 1 - b.LIR 1 1 - b.LIR 2 1 - b.RadfBtl 1 - b.RIR 11 1 - b.RIR 16 1 - b.RIR 17 1 - b.RIR 19 1 - b.RIR 4 Infanterie/Jäger (in regimental order) ILR (11) 1.b.IR (6) 2.b.IR (1) 3.b.IR (8) 4.b.IR (7) 5.b.IR (1) 6.b.IR (2) 7.b.IR (1) 8.b.IR (1) 9.b.IR (2) 10.b.IR (3) 11.b.IR (4) 13.b.IR (1) 15.b.IR (1) 16.b.IR (3) 17.b.IR (2) 18.b.IR (3) 19.b.IR (2) 20.b.IR (1) 21.b.IR (1) 22.b.IR (2) 23.b.IR (2) 24.b.IR (3) 26.b.IR (1) 27.b.IR (1) 31.b.IR (1) 32.b.IR (1) b.LIR 1 (1) b.LIR 2 (1) b.RIR 1 (4) b.RIR 2 (4) b.RIR 3 (2) b.RIR 4 (1) b.RIR 5 (3) b.RIR 6 (2) b.RIR 7 (2) b.RIR 8 (2) b.RIR 10 (3) b.RIR 11 (1) b.RIR 12 (4) b.RIR 13 (3) b.RIR 15 (2) b.RIR 16 (1) b.RIR 17 (1) b.RIR 18 (5) b.RIR 19 (1) b.RIR 20 (2) b.RIR 21 (2) b.RIR 22 (2) b.RIR 23 (2) b.BrigEB 5 (1) 1.b.JB (2) 2.b.JB (3) b.RJB 1 (4) b.JägR 1 (1) JägR 3 (2) b.RadfBtl 3 (1) I should also add that Lt.d.R. Joseph Ritter v. Steiner of the b.3.IR received the Kommandeurkreuz as well, albeit posthumously. This was the only award of that class to an officer below division-level, and the only award of that class other than that to Oberstlt.i.G. Hans Ritter v. Hemmer to an officer below the rank of general/admiral.

    Florida Police Ribbons?

    1. USAF Combat Readiness Medal 2. USMC Selected Marine Corps Reserve Medal 3. Defense Distinguished Service Medal 4. Philippine Independence Medal (1946) The wearing on the upper right is probably due to the size of the badge. Also, many police departments are probably unaware of the military tradition of wearing the ribbons close to the heart. There are professional providers of police equipment who make individual ribbons for departments and who try to avoid duplication of military ribbons. See this site for example: https://publicsafetyspecialties.com/civilian_cloth_ribbons.htm The Sanford PD, however, appears to have just bought a bunch of ribbons for their officers without regard for their original meanings. Or maybe it is just Officer Singleton, since the only other picture I could find of a Sanford officer wearing ribbons was in the obituary for Officer Kate Walsh, and none of here ribbons were the same as any standard US military ribbons: https://www.facebook.com/SanfordPolice/photos/with-a-heavy-heart-we/831411966919621/
  5. I do think the Alpenkorps is a worthy subject. I just think that to do it justice you need to address the Mecklenburger and Goslarer Jägers, among others. I know Chris's primary focus is Bavaria, though. Besides Bavarians like Ferdinand Schörner and Württembergers like Erwin Rommel, a number of Goslarer Jäger who served in the Alpenkorps, such as Hermann Balck, Ernst Haccius and Heinrich Kirchheim, went on to serve as generals in World War Two, so there could be additional interest from people whose interest is in WW2.
  6. Focussing on the Alpenkorps alone, you would have to take into consideration that about 1/3 of the infantry was not Bavarian. Many of the MG and artillery units were also Prussian.
  7. Christer, Is there a picture or any information on OLt.d.R. Richard Michelmann from 10. Komp., Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 255? He was either from the reserve of Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 135 or that of the 2. Garde-Regiment zu Fuß. Even a picture would help, if the uniform experts could tell if it was a guards or regular infantry uniform.
