  1. von Mudra passed his Abitur in 1870, then entered as Freiwillige in the Prussian Pioneer troops
  2. Hello, your data about Scheer is more accurate . Regarding the date, i tought in the Kieler Woche of course not that of 1914, Franz Ferdinand was murdered precisely during the Kiel Week of these year and the Kaiser was noticed on board of his race yacht . Another option is a visit of William II to the Austro Hungarian Heir in the Island of Brioni ( Istria ) today Brijuni .where Franz Ferdinand uses to go in holidays
  3. Hello Admiral, Number 2 looks certainly as von Ingenohl but number 7 is not Scheer i believe , he ranks as Konteradmiral and Scheer was full Admiral by 1913, the presence of Franz Ferdinand fixes the date of the pic before 1914 and i venture 1913 as the year of the pic was shot .
  4. The man portrayed is not a NCO , a NCO dont carry oak leaves embrioidered on the collar and on the band of the kepi , the oval cockade on the kepi is Belgian , the absence of epaulettes or shoulder boards , the lack also of hungarian knots on the cuffs conduces to think in a police comissioner or a Prefet as those of France
  5. von Schjerning wears in the photo what it looks as a M1910 field grey tunic for Prussian general officers with chest pockets, rolled cuffs piped red , red piping at the front closure and around the collar, but with the blue collar patches piped in red of the Medical branch and over the patches the gold doppellitzen of the Blue Waffenrock instead of the Alt Larisch embroidery of the Other Generals . But, the 1910 tunic for Medical officers comported the use of large collar patches in blue piped red and a rear buton ,without litzen . the collar patches charged with litzen appeared with the M15 feldbluse . The shoulder boards of a Medical General were a special ones also . the Feldmutze , field grey with blue velvet band piped in red and the crown piping also red .Lampassen ? yes and red as with the peace uniform
  6. A little contribution about the combatant or no combatant classes of decorations and how were attributed . Roughly if you were positioned in the rear of the front but under the range of fire of the Heavy Artilley of the Enemy you were eligible for a combattant cross . In WW2 the Long Range Bomber expanded the limits of the combattant . The famous German Doctor Ferdinad Sauerbruch was Medical General der reserve in the Wehrmacht Heer . He was serving in Paris when he was awarded the Knight Cross with swords of the War Merit Cross . But with swords why? because the Allied Bombers had bombed the Headquarters of the Army Group in which Sauerbruch was Medical Counsellor
  7. As his father the Admiral , the Chief of the Naval Cabinet of Wilhelm II constant member of the Monarchs Entourage , the young von Muller made a Career more of Courtrier than a Soldier
  8. In the year of 1848 Kaiser Franz Joseph was made Oberbefehlshaber of the Keksholm Leibgarde Regiment of the Imperial Russian Army . In 1898 being the 50 anniversary of Kaiser Franz Joseph as Chef of the Kexholm LG regiment he conceded the Medal that you shows . How many he gifted ? I dont know but you can guess of about 3000 pieces
  9. During 1914 and 1915 five Landwehr Cavalry Regiments were raised . numbered 1 later 10, 2 later 11 , 90 and 92 and i suppose that the fifth was the Garde Landwehr Cavalry Regiment the data is from Nigel Thomas book The German Army in World War One (3) 1917 1918 , ilustrated by Ramiro Bujeiro . i had copied literally except my supossition of the Garde Landwehr Regiment . Thomas said also that they used the uniform of their parent Regiment . its all
  10. He was Transportation Chef of the Prussian Army before the war , then in 1914 Chief of Staff of the Seventh Army under General Josias von Heringen in 1915 Commander of the XIV AK and finally Chief of Staff acting Commander of the X AK in Hannover. please enter your search as follows : Karl von Haenisch the Prussian Machine . there you will find more data
    • Deutschritter About Oberst / General , Alfred Arent I found the following :  The 21st September 1899 by decree of President Julio Argentino Roca then Argentine President was decided to contract the " retired Cavalry Colonel of the German Army "  to organize the Escuela Superior de Guerra ( General Staff School ) . the rank of Argentinian Army General was not mentioned in the decree, of interest is to mention that the decree asigned 600 gold Argentinian pesos to Colonel Arent for expenses for him and his fellow officers contracted

      Deutschritter , I understand that the 600 gold pesos were for the voyage and other costs . not only of Colonel Arent but also of Kornatzki and  Roldan von Strunk. otherwise an yearly or monthly payment must have been stated . a Gold peso of 1899 was equal to 2, 28 Pesos Moneda Nacional which were equivalent to a US dollar . then Colonel Arent received 600 Us dollars , roughly 2 400 Reichsmarks . a good amount

      Thanks for that. 2.400 Reichsmark at that time ... not bad! Do you know more about this Roldan von Strunk? I couldn't find anything about him. Here are some of the names I have, if you can add anything, that would be great:

      Deutschritter ,please excuse me, Roldan von Strunk or Roland was not part of Colonel s Arent mission . by via of a lapsus of mine i included his name. Strunk was an ex officer in the AH Cavalry during WW1 of Prussian birth and after the War in the Freikorps and  Black Reichswehr , friend of Hitler he served as counselor to the Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War . The member of the Arent mission was Bertrand Schunck. Your data about the German Officers that served in the Argentinian Army is better than the available in the Archives of the Argentinian Army Historical Service .  Herzliche Bayerische Grusse !

  11. Since July of 1957 the use of the WW2 Iron Cross was allowed to the recipients , veterans of war . But without the Swastika then, they were manufactured again
