FML Georg Hefelle von Nagykárolyfalva

Recommended Posts

Can anyone shed some light on the late wartime career of Feldmarschalleutnant Georg Hefelle von Nagykárolyfalva.

I have him listed as Kmdt. 72 ID  in mid to late 1916, but then he drops off the radar.   I know that he was retired 01 JAN 1919.

Regards,

Ian

He got sick at the end of 1916, maybe it was serious and he wasn't put on active duty until the end of war.

The nobility was awarded (von Nagykárolyfalva) in February 1917, and a Bronze Military Merit Medal with Swords was awarded in July 1917.

He is mentioned in newspapers to be living in Budapest in 1928 and 1929

I couldn't find any other mentions.

He died in 1942:
