And #2...

#58 Richard von Conta. He recieved the PLM on 15.10.1916 as commanding General of the Carpathian Corps (20.07.1916-01.01.1918) and the oak leaves on 26.03.1918.

Thank you very much 'arb' - that is absolutely great.

Bad form on my part for not "signing" my posts. My name is Andy and I am glad to have helped.

Dave,

Great work on the reservists. May I ask what your sources for the information are?

The Militär-Wochenblatt for the promotion dates. Gotha for Günther von Killisch-Horn's first name and birthdate. The Lundström/Krause book on Saxon duchy awards for Mühlenpfordt's first name, and Mühlenpfordt's dissertation for his exact birthdate.
