Hello,

I am looking for information on Karl Ogilvie who was an officer in the Infantry Regiment Nr. 71. He received the Hohenzollern Houseorder as a Leutnant. Later on he served in the Wehrmacht as Colonel with the forein armies Department in OKH. Especially a photo of him would be needed.

Thanks for any help in advance.

 

Best regards

It´s online.

Some photos. The quality can't be helped, since they are digital photos of microfilm images.

I was wondering whether this ribbon bar could belong to Ogilvie.

When I bought this bar the seller also had a 3 place large medal bar from the former bearer (IC2 1914, Schwarzburg Medal Silver, Wehrmacht Long Service for 4 years) as well as a single Hohenzollern Hausorden.

What are your thougths?

Thanks

Dear hoh1851,

I do not completely trust the bar, however, to give a conclusive answer, we'll need to see the back too.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Hi Laurentius,

in my opinion there are no doubts with this bar. In the grouping was another one without the KVK ribbon.

Best regards

A medal bar with the SKM and post-war awards would not fit Ogilvie. He received the SEK3X in 1916 which under Schwarzburg regulations would replace the earlier SKM. So his post-war medal bar would have the Ehrenkreuz, not the medal.

I like the ribbon bar. The Hindenburg Cross is missing, but this could be a period mistake. The bar could also have been the upper row of two ribbon bars.
