Oberstleutnant Karl Budiner

8 posts in this topic

I am looking for information on Oberstleutnant Karl Budiner. He was serving with Feldjagerbatalion 6 in 1916, 1917 and possibly 1918.

He is listed in the 1917 Rangliste as a Major in FJB 6, but there is no mention of him in the 1918 Rangliste.

I assume he died sometime between being promoted to Oberstleutnant in late 1917 or early 1918 but before the 1918 Rangliste was complied.

Regards,

Thank you.   Is there any idea of when he was promoted to Oberstleutnant?

Budapesti Közlöny (Gazette) 1918.06.02 mentioned him as Ret. Lt. Col, served on a Korpskommando, awarded by MVK 3. with swords for the brave conduct in the face of the enemy.

M

Thanks for filling in the blanks for me.

A little confused with his service in June/July 1917. He was invalided out due to war injuries? He then served in a Korpskommando in or near a war zone as a Oberstluetnant a.D. or d.R.?

Regards,

Ian

I guess the "natural attrition" is more likely.

The problem is the newspapers are only secondary sources, some news was "slipped" in the time.

He served in a Korpskommando when he was in the Armeestand, in the hinterland. Most likely his commander suggested him for the MVK 3 when he was in the frontline, but the administration delayed.
