Uwe has it right- Hugo Weichsel, commander 24.12.1914-22.02.1917. He then went on to become Arko 183.

Hello I have two signatures that I want to find out the owners. First one is on a very handsome EKII Doc from a grouping to Bernhard Kniep (EKII, Hanseatic Cross, Hindy and a Turkish War Medal owner).

Thanks to Kevin for referring this thread to me!

And the second document from the Bernhard Kniep konvolut is a Hanseatic Cross document.

Hi,

The commander of the 4th Ersatz Division was Albert von Werder (22 July 1852 - 3. July 1936).

Thank you so much Dave!

One more signature to identify. This time from the home front (at least for me!)

A handwritten Turkish War Medal document from Istanbul. Does anyone has an idea if it is signed Braun or something else?

On a silver presentation box are engraved the name of 56 PLM winners, mostly Flieger and U-boot commanders.  But on each side are, I think, 6 names of Army Officers with PLMs.  I have had help identifying two names so far.  Any help IDing the last 4 would be appreciated!
