Rick, Komtur,

Fritz Vieth was the former 3. Lothringisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 135 Vieth (Hptm 1.10.13 B50b) and still in that rank in the 1919 Dienstaltersliste. Magdeburgisches J?ger-Bataillon Nr. 4 Leutnant Vieth was promoted to Oberleutnant with a Patent of 27.1.15 J52i and was still in that rank in the 1919 Dienstaltersliste.

Glenn

Sorry, there were other awarding documents in that group, I forgot to mention:

1.) Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz f?r Hauptmann Vieth IR 135 (date not to read)

2.) Braunschweig Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse f?r Hauptmann und Kompanief?hrer Fritz Vieth Res.-IR 98 (?) vom 28.6.1918

3.) Braunschweig Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse f?r Hauptmann Fritz Vieth IR 459 vom 8.8.1918

4.) Braunschweig Bew?hrungsabzeichen zum Kriegsverdienstkreuz Hauptmann Fritz Vieth IR 459 vom 26.9.1918

The scans on Ebay were bad and before I was able to bid, the document group was canceled :angry:

With regards, Komtur.

Daniel,

From their award documents, three that you may already have:

Leutnant der Reserve Ernst Paczoch, IR 175, 26. Februar 1917, Rollennr. 5140

Leutnant der Reserve Heinrich Giesbert, FAR 69, 10. Juni 1918, Rollennr. 7251

Leutnant Oskar Wiss, IR 99, 17. Juni 1918, Rollennr. 7393

With 142 awards in just one week, June 1918 must have been a busy month at the Generalkommission.

Hi Friends,

I want to bring this theme back to top and to ask again for assistance.

Who can show Hohenzollern documents?

I?m especially interested in late 1918 awards and awards to guys with more-than-common names like M?ller or Lehmann.

At the moment I have already more than 300 additional names than Willi Geile had in his first Hohenzollern roll from the mid-90ies.

Best regards

Daniel
