Hi,

the name is "von Bartenwerfer" there was a staff-officer under Ludendorff´s command by this name. But if it´s him or a relative I don´t know.

Actually,

the  correct  name is von Bartenwerffer. During the war there were two Oberst and one Generalmajor as well as one Oberleutnant active by that name. Your Hauptmann in 1907/09 was Major at the beginning of the war serving in the Großer Generalstab and ended it as Oberst and Chief of Staff of Generalkommando 55.

Hello!

I think, Grey C is wrong.

According to the Oldenburg medals, Major v. Bartenwerffer of the Generalstab didn´t have any Oldenburg medals.

I´ve found the right one in the 1908 ranklist in Generalstab V.Armeekorps Posen.

He promoted to Hauptmann 20.3.06 and in 1909 he served with 5th comp./Leibgarde-Inf.Rgt,.115 (Hessen)

He had this Oldenburg medal:

OV3b: http://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsche-staaten/oldenburger-haus-und-verdienstorden-ritterkreuz-2-klasse-mit-krone-1860.html

Ranklist 1912: Chief of staff (3.Division Stettin), additional medal: RAO4, Hauptmann

Ranklist 1913: Chief of staff (3.Division Stettin), Major (prom.1.10.12)

Ranklist 1914: Generalstab der Armee, Großer Generalstab, Major
