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.

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.

Thanks Pep for reviving this thread. Some beautiful bars for sure. Would love to have one or two in this thread in my own collection.

A well worn Preussia/Saxony combo. Too bad about the rather amateurish attempt to restore the blue border.
