      Thanks so much for your response and the excellent information!!! One other question would you happen to have the dates the awards were awarded and the timeframe for his service with Feld Art. Rgt. 19?

      WW1 is not my area of collecting so I am completely w/o reference material.

      The awards in particular were something I really wanted to find so this is very helpful/valuable.

      Kind regards
