The Saxony/Reuss combo likely indicates a 13th Jager Batallion connection.  I posted this group a few years back elsewhere but, it fits here, as well.

The last award (Kriegerverein 1866er?) still to be identified.



...another one with 1863/64, 1866 and 1870/71 awards.

Hi Beau,

Good to hear from you. All that I have on him so far is that he is listed in the Hannover 1865 House and State Handbook as a premier lieutenant on the staff of the engineer corps. After 1866 he, like many other Hannoverians, continued his career in the Saxon army. My notes show that he served in the 2nd Co., Royal Saxon Pioneer Bn.

I should probably point out that his Hannover jubilee medal is a 21 April 1804/ 21 April 1904.

That’s about it.

Best wishes.
