I am so glad your great-grandfather was in the Franco-Prussian War! Mine was born in 1833, so when I see posts now about "my great-grandfather's medals in WW2" I feel like Kaiser Friedrich Barbarossa waiting for a wake up call! :speechless1:

Here he was: in another field unit entirely :rolleyes:

Wow, so is No. 14459.

Thanks Rick, yes, my great-grandfather was born 13.7.1842, my grandfather 1.6.1886, and i feel like a dinosaur when i remember the stories i have heard from grandfather and grandmother ! :unsure:

Heinrich Hockenbeck became Rittmeister der Landwehr and retired in 1898. He further received

-Kriegsdenkm?nze 1870/71 for combattants (of cause)

-Landwehrdienstauszeichnung 1. Klasse

-Roter Adler-Orden 4. Klasse

-Kronen-Orden 3. Klasse

The last two he received as director of a Highschool in M?nster. He died 22.6.1905.

Thanks again and best regards

Markus

Greetings gentlemen,

I just got hold of my copy of this great CD, and must say I'm thrilled with it !

:jumping::jumping::jumping:

This wonderful list featuring the given names of the recipients (capital information !), I could at last make sense of the information I found re. a Hussar Lieutenant named v. Rothkirch u. Trach : there were two of them (both got the EK2), brothers Graf Dorotheus and Graf Friedrich Leopold :

Plus I got to learn that Friedrich Leopold acted as Ordonnanz-Offizier b. General-Kommando der 8.Armee-Korps - which I had absolutely no clue of !

What a great CD - many thanks Glenn !

Salutations,

Jerome

I see that a Geman dealer is offering later reference works:

See link: http://www.german-militaria.de/katalog/e20070_3.htm

Am very interested in the work as am starting a site dedicated to the EK recipiants.

Just bought the domain www.IronCross.org which will be the site.

Any help will be appreciated. My email is rsheehy@pacbell.net

Thanks

Rich.

Came across a wonderful "little" title on my last research trip to the big city: A complete register of the winners of the 1870 Iron Cross with first names and units :jumping:

Some 1200 odd pages it contains the names of the winners from all contingents in all classes.

Regards

Glenn

Hello,

my fault, I'm too often closed in my little Austrohungarian-Soviet garden, so I've missed Glenn's great find.

Just a question: did any member of the Anrep or Anrep-Elmpt family receive the EK?

Many thanks in advance,

Enzo

Hi Enzo,

I take a quick look into the list and I can't find the names "Anrep or Anrep-Elmpt or Elmpt".

Best regards, :beer:

Jeff,

I have not yet decided how to "distribute" this. If there is some interest I will copy it to cd as a pdf file for a nominal fee at some stage.

webr55,

they are generally in order of name and again sorted by rank. There are actually four full pages of Schmidts!

Here are some awards on the non-combatant ribbon.

Regards

Glenn

Great!!!!.

Please consider me to be on the waiting list and I agree beforehand on the fees.

thanks again

Miguel

Thank you Jens, I've had a chance to see a group of orders and decorations belonged to members of the Anrep and Anrep-Elmpt family (they had high ranking officers serving in the Russian army in the late 18th Century and during the napoleonic wars; other members (but I'm not sure if descendants of female members, so with other surname), served in Germany and Imperial Austria. Among other pieces there is a EK2-1870, so I've asked for info and try to attribute that Iron Cross.

Best wishes,

Enzo
