  1. He died on 10 June 1953 in Weende, Göttingen. He is in the 1937 Stellenbesetzung as a Hauptmann (E) with an RDA of 1.11.1933 and in the 1939 Dienstaltersliste as a Major (E) with an RDA of 1.4.1938, in both cases assigned to the staff WBK Göttingen. He does not have a personnel file in the captured German military records in the National Archives, so he was not an active army officer in 1945. He is not in DeZeng & Stankey's collection of Luftwaffe officers, so he apparently did not transfer there, so I have no idea what he did during the war. As an E-officer, he would have rece
  2. Tilgner, Louis Adolf Felix * 16.1.1881 in Breslau Oberbuchwald was in the reporting area for Sprottau, so he was possibly the Vizewachtmeister Tilgner in the Res.Inf.Mun.Kol. 14 of the V. Reservekorps who was promoted to Lt.d.L.-Felda. I (Sprottau) on 14.1.1916. However, an HOH3X for field artillery support officer seems uncommon, so he may have been the Vizefeldwebel Tilgner promoted to Lt.d.L.-Inf. I (I Breslau) on 13.5.1918. That Tilgner, however, received the Saxe-Meiningen Medal for Merit in War in 1915, which may simply have been omitted from the death notice.
  3. Hertel, Karl Theodor *25.4.1890 in Endingen, Baden †14.10.1965 in Wiesbaden He was wounded in 1914 as a Vfw.d.R. in RIR 40, in 1915 as a Lt.d.R. in LIR 11, and for a third time in 1918. He was promoted to Lt.d.R. in RIR 40 on 16.11.1914. His Rufname does appear to be Karl, but he is in the Zähringen Lion roll as "Theod. Karl", a Lt.d.R. of GR 110, at the time in RIR 51.
  4. Harry Nadrowski was an Oberst and Feldkommandant in World War II. His HOH3X was awarded on 15.10.1918, so there was about a month and half between the award and it being published in Die Presse. Due to the revolution, it was apparently not published in the Militär-Wochenblatt or Prussian Staatsanzeiger, but I found the date in his HPA personnel file. Born in 1888, he was living in Frankfurt am Main after World War II, but I haven't found a date of death.
  5. Loeb, Friedrich "Fritz" Matthias * 26.3.1893 in Trier † 18.8.1975 in Frankfurt am Main He was a Lt.d.R. in Infanterie-Regiment "von Horn" Nr. 29, serving in the MG-Kompagnie, later 2. MG-Kompagnie, and was wounded three times. He was not a member of the IR 29 Offizier-Vereinigung in the 1931 membership list, and of course as a Jew would not have been permitted to be a member at the time of the 1939 list. These are the only membership lists I have, and I do not have the regimental history, so I do not know if he is mentioned there. After World War I, he was a Kaufmann, initially i
  6. Müller's CO, the later Luftwaffe Generalmajor Viktor Carganico, was himself also a recipient of the HOH3X.
  7. Müller, Maximilian Heinrich Wilhelm * 30.7.1887 in Neumarkt in Schlesien † 4.4.1918 near Ailly Though Silesian by birth, he studied at the University of Greifswald and remained in Greifswald during his Lehramt training. Thus, he did his Einjährig-Freiwilliger year from 1.10.1911 to 30.9.1912 with IR 42. However, he was in his Seminarjahr at the König-Wilhelms-Gymnasium in Breslau when the war began, and Vfw.d.R. Müller was called up in Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 10, whose regimental staff and III. Bataillon were from Breslau. Since Müller is too common a name, and the Prussians h
  8. Dierig, Wolfgang, Dr.phil. * 21.7.1879 in Oberlangenbielau in Schlesien, son of Kommerzienrat Friedrich Dierig (1845-1931) and Minne, geb. Bienert (1855-1920). † xx.5.1945 in Großgrünau, Sudetenland • 1.10.1898-1.10.1899 - Einjährig-Freiwilliger in HR 9 • 18.10.1902 - Lt.d.R. of UR 11 • 18.11.1911 - OLt.d.R. • 2.12.1914 - Rittm.d.R., currently in the staff of XXI.Armeekorps • 31.3.1920 - der Abschied bewilligt • After retirement, he was given the Charakter of Maj.d.R.a.D. Dr.phil. Wolfgang Dierig was a Fabrikbesitzer in Oberlangenbielau. He received his doctorate in ch
  9. Hermstein, Hubertus Ferdinand Alfred * 2.8.1885 in Komprachtschütz, Kreis Oppeln † 12.11.1930 in Leobschütz He was commissioned a Lt.d.R. (Cosel, later Ratibor) in FAR 21 on 19 December 1911, and promoted to OLt.d.R. on 9 March 1917. His death certificate lists him as a Rittergutsbesitzer in Leobschütz-Blümsdorf. He was the brother of Theodor Maximilian Hubertus Hermstein (*29.5.1884 in Komprachtschütz), who was an active officer in FAR 21, retiring as a Major, and later an E-Officer in the Wehrmacht, promoted to Oberst in 1942. Their father, Ökonomierat and Rittergutspächte
  10. It is Theodor Duesterberg (1875-1950). The order after the WK3X and before the HT is the HP3bX. He was a native of Hessen-Darmstadt. Most of his WW1 awards were received as Adjutant of the 13. Infanterie-Division or while serving in the Kriegsministerium as head of the Abteilung Verbündete Heere.
  11. I believe they changed to darker-colored uniforms shortly after this picture was taken when they realized how ineffective this uniform would be on the battlefield. Also, a fine example of the different ways to get different state awards. Prussian Army, so the Iron Cross. Native of Baden, so the Zähringen Lion. Served in a regiment whose Chef or Inhaber was a sovereign, so the awards of that sovereign, in this case Mecklenburg-Schwerin. According to his marriage certificate, he was a Reichsbankoberinspektor in Frankfurt an der Oder in 1928. His father was a Sergeant in Pionier-Ba
  12. I don't have anything further on the cause of death, but for clarity's sake I would note that his surname was "Capler von Oedheim genannt Bautz", with the title of Freiherr, so any index will have him under "C".
  13. No dynastic or regimental connection. However, as mentioned in other threads, there are numerous ways for seemingly random pairings to happen. I know of several hundred awards of the MMV2 to men of all ranks in Grand Ducal Hessian regiments just from those that were published from 1914 to 1917 in the Regierungsblatt, which are only a fraction of total MMV awards. These were typically Mecklenburg natives in those regiments. You also have Hessians in Mecklenburg units, and Hessians in the navy who may have received Mecklenburg awards. One curious case is this: on 10 January 1915, 20 office
  14. Alfred Wilhelm Koyemann was born on 15 October 1895 in Hamburg and died in 1950 in Travemünde. He was promoted to Dr.jur et rer.pol. by the University of Würzburg in 1920, and was a banker in Hamburg from the 1920s to his death. He entered service in Jäger-Bataillon Nr. 9 and was promoted to Leutnant der Reserve (II Hamburg) on 5.4.1916. According to the battalion history, he received the EK2 on 8.12.1915 and the Hamburg Hanseatenkreuz in 1916. He was wounded in 1915 as a Vizefeldwebel der Reserve. His brother was KIA in 1916 as a Fahnenjunker-Unteroffizier in IR 162.
  15. Willi Brumm's Todesanzeige in the Nachrichtenblatt of the Bund IR 24. Brumm, Alfred Otto Willi, * 6.3.1887 in Steinfurth, Oberbarnim, † 26.11.1935 in Neuruppin Brumm was promoted on 3.10.14 to Lt.d.R. (Ruppin) in IR 24, and served in the field with IR 189. IR 189 was a Brandenburg regiment formed in May 1915 with companies from several regular Brandenburg regiments, including IR 24; 10./IR 189 was formerly 6./IR 24 and 11./IR 189 was formerly 11./IR 24. Brumm was a Volksschullehrer in Herzberg, Ruppin. He also had the Austro-Hungarian Militärverdienstkreuz 3.Klasse mit der Kri
