House Order of Hohenzollern - info needed

373 posts in this topic

Hi Friends,

as Rick would say, one of my 47 parallel projects is an upgrade of the existing Roll for the House Order of Hohenzollern with swords.

For that I need Your help to improve the list. From the old list done by Willi Geile I could already erase a lot of mistakes and add around 150 more recipients. But that is not enough. We want to be close to perfect.

Please assist me and show me Your documents, bars, portraits from Your collections.

Thanks a lot

Daniel

Everyone, This is well worth the effort of providing Daniel with this information. The HOH3x was given out rather liberally and is a key for IDing bars.

I had a doc once from a Friedrich Karl Renke, Reserve Ersatzregiment Nr. 4, Leutnant der Landwehr. His doc was dated: 27.7.17

Is Artur Mahraun the signature on the doc?

Hi Daniel,

I don't think so. It's strange that this document haven't got the Kanitz signature :banger: This is the first Hohenzollern document I see without Kanitz signature.

I've got two ribbon bars with the HHOX. #1: Generalmajor Hermann Voigt-Ruscheweyh (device unfortunately missing).

His picture shows him wearing both the HHOX AND the EK Spange on his buttonhole ribbon.
