  5. Thanks again, Rick, My mistake in typing the Bavarian MVO, you are right, without swords. Thanks a bunch for the info on the Baden order. very much appreciated. As I am terribly new to Imperial German, is there some basic work or works I can read to start understanding the orders award system, like how did you know he had a Baden decoration ?? This is all very overwhelming for me. Just beginning to collect rangelists and stuff like that. So far I usually have been collectring Militarpass's to enlisted and NCO with very simple medal entitlements. I am only interested in theaters

  7. Hi Glenn & Rick, Many thanks for your assistance, you have both added info that I did not have. I have most of his papers, promotion patents etc, and award documents and decoration for the Hohenzollern House Order. I did not have his urkunde showing he was awarded the Saxon Albert Order. His Bavarian Military Merit Order 4th Class with swords was warded March 12th, 1912. He received the Kolonialdenkmunze mit spange - DEUTSCH-OSTAFRIKA 1905-07 for his role in the Maji-Maji Rebellion in East Africa. He is also mentioned in a book I had translated and published in a limited edition
