Gentlemen,

I am searching for information to add to what I already have on the subject officer.  I know he enlisted in the Prussian army in 1860 and served until 1890.  He fought in the Austro-Prussian war (1866/67) and in the Franco-Prussian war (1870/71).  He was part of the military mission, as the Infantry, specialist, sent to the Ottoman Empire in 1882 and subsequently transferred to the Ottoman service.  He was given the rank of Mushir in the Ottoman service in 1895 with the title of Pasha.  He fought against the Greeks in the short war of 1897.  Perhaps someone can locate in in one of the rank lists.

Regards,

Gordon

Gordon,

this from the Offizier-Stammliste of Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 68. I assume you are OK with the German language.

Regards

Glenn

Glenn,

Thanks very much.  This is a ig help.  I can get most of it.  Some of the short forms will take some work.  I don't see any listing for the bars he would be wearing on his 1870/71 medal.  Any idea where I could find this info?  Perhaps from the history of Infantry Regiment 68?

Regards,

Gordon
