Oberst von Schlebrügge (Knight Cross holder, Narvik, as first company and then battalion commander)

Dear forumites,

Could somebody tell my if he got the White Falcon Order 2nd class with swords in WWI? And if so date of the bestowal of this decoration? As young cavalry officer of a Thüringisches Husarenregiment it could have well been so.

Many thanks in advance for your kind assistance !

Best regards,

Claudio

Dear foumites!

These are the orders and medals of Oberst  von Schlebrügge; as you can see there’s a White Falcon RK 2 Kl with swords. Also he was decorated with both classes of the Silesian Eagle and the Baltic cross (see narrow white ribbon with blue stripes after the Silesian Eagle).

Furthermore there’s a book about him (Kaltenegger’s, a quite renowned and acclaimed writer of books on the subject of the German mountain troops) where it is explained and confirms that von Schlebrügge got his Silesian Eagles and Baltic cross.

Also in the 2nd part of the book “Die Ritterkreuzträger der Gebirgsjäger L-Z” there’s the confirmation of his orders, also a quite elusive description of House Order of Saxon State.

Von Schlebrügge was in the 12th Thuringian Ussar (Husar) Regiment, therefore I can assume that, since he got the EKs first and second class, he would have very likely almost automatically been awarded with the White Falcon Order as a cavalry officer. I suspect that this was a very late 1918 bestowal and therefore it could explain the absence of it in the rolls of the Grandduchy (Grossherzogtum) of Saxony-Weimar’s White Falcon Order.

That’s of course my fairly educated and safe assumption.
