Hi Andy and Alf,

The May 1918 entries are the Vereins-Lazarett in Heiligenstadt and the Genesungs-Kompanie (convalescent company) of Ers./RIR 27. 

On page 18, it looks like "nebenstehenden Truppenteil".

Despite being born in Dessau and being wounded and decorated with the Iron Cross, he did not receive the Friedrich Cross for some reason.

I have all the pages, but I am afraid they are mixed during photographing them.

Eventually I will post all, I hope.:)

again thank you ALL for your time and help.

Hi Dave, thank you for joining, what do you mean "Despite being born in Dessau and being wounded and decorated with the Iron Cross, he did not receive the Friedrich Cross for some reason." why 

 why was he entitled to this cross after all.

. Alf.

Albert Pichowski was born in Dessau, the capital of the Duchy of Anhalt.  Among the basic requirements for the Friedrichkreuz were that one be a citizen of Anhalt and that either you received the Iron Cross or were wounded in action, or both.

There were exceptions, of course. The requirements were usually waived for soldiers in predominantly Anhalt units like Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 93, Landwehr-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 66, and Landsturm-Infanterie-Bataillon Dessau IV/12. Also, officers who commanded a sufficient number of Anhaltiners could be considered. Also, as the war went on, Anhalt made awards to its Landeskinder in units where the Iron Cross was hard to earn, such as Armierungs-Bataillone.

There were about 100 awards to officers and men of Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 27.
