I do think that von Tschudi did not arrive to FEA 7 Cöln  until early 1916, despite nominated commander earlier. So there were likely five commanders before him.

Hi Andy, what is your source of that list? I've been looking into him a bit and I came across the following. 

1.8.1914 - 1.10.1914 Kdr III./ IR 55
21.9.1914 - 9.11.1914 Fhr IR 16
9.11.(1.10.)1914 - 5.4.1915 Kdr IR 55
27.5.1915 - 7.1.1917 Kdr IR 98
8.2.1917 - 2.8.1917 Kdr RIR 15
2.8.1917 - 1918 Kdt von Norderney
22.6.1918 - 17.8.1918g. Kdr 96. RIB

It's pretty close but the dates differ.

Erwin,

I used Wegner's "Stellenbesetzung der deutschen Heere" as well as the Militärwichenblatt plus a few "Dienstaltersllisten" for his promotions.

The problem with Wegner is that he does not usually provide end dates.  I use the date that the next officer took over, not always the same date the first officer departed, hence differences.

What sources did you use to find his command of RIR 15 and as Komdt of Nordeney??

I found it on the axis forum: https://forum.axishistory.com//viewtopic.php?t=193741

Doesn't mention sources tho.

On a side note. The 2 von Gottbergs mentioned in that thread are brothers.

I can use some major help with these ones. 

This index for photographs are from 7.7.18 to 20.11.18.  From the 21. Reserve-Division and most likely the 41. Reserve-Infanterie-Brigade. 

Some names I identified already. Cantin (on first page), Croisilles, Quentin, Quievy, Valenciennes, La Bourse Brussel.

Can I get some help with the Handwriting?  My wife's Great Grandfather in Austrian Infantry Regiment Nr. 11 "Georg Prinx von sachsen".

 

Now I could use some help from a native German speaker that can help me with the handwriting.  What I know is: Ort: Stehlowitz, BezirK: Muhlhausen, Kreis oder Komitat: Budweis, Land: Bohmen.  Geburtsjahr: 1834, Religion: katolisch, Stand: Ledig, Profession: ?  That all matches other family docs I have.

I sure could use some with the rest of it.  next stop is to figure out if he was in the Italian campaign of 1859 and the battle of Solferino,.

Thanks. Schmied was what I was suspecting as that is listed as his occupation on the US Census.

On the company rolls, where I do not find anything close, the first letter in the name above seems to be used for named starting in "N"

I´m sorry.  I´m not not a specialist in reading old scripts...

Maybe "Spindler"?

The company clerk of the 11. Komp has a skript all of his own it seems... astonishingly different from the normal one... I will recheck the S's though
