Dear All,

My source tells me a Major August Mackensen wrote about 1880 a Regimental history on the Leibhusars. There was also a Stammliste added to this book.

I am looking for a specific officer from this regiment, and hope that one of you could help me out in finding the career details of

Friedrich Wilhelm Leopold PAUL v. Driesen gen. v.d. Oest

he was decommissioned in 1811 in the rank of Premierleutnant.

Thanks a lot!!

Hi David,

Can't help you much, but there's a website where they can (though for a fee I understand) : the Institut Deutsche Adelsforschung

- They have a page showcasing different army lists and details they hold :

http://home.foni.net/~adelsforschung/ind03.htm

- They have a page listing nobility serving for the "Schwarze Husaren" :

http://home.foni.net/~adelsforschung/husar.htm

- They seem to have the details for your man (though there seems to be some missplelling somewhere) :

Dreisen gen.v.der Oste, Paul v. (18./19.Jh.)

David,

a Stammliste of both regiments is contained in Volume 2 of Schwarze Husaren. I looked for your officer but only came across reference to an officer by the name of Louis von Driesen gen. v.d. Oest of Leib-Husaren-Regiment Nr. 2 whose details are apparently in volume 1.

I can check volume 1 for you in two weeks time when I return to the library and see if there is anything of interest on him. I can't next weekend as I will be in Berlin.

Regards

Glenn
