w?rttemberger who got something from coburg-gotha (perhaps both combat awards after his home state one)

not a that "big" guy in ww2 (no wiederholungsspange for the ek - got "only" a kvk)

perhaps there exist a w?rttemberger unit where a royal from saxon-cobutg-gotha was commander or chief of it and the awardee was in ww2 a "paper-fighter" at a luftwaffe office table.

- to many thoughts i shouldn't do without any knowledge about research and without having ranklists or anything similar ... speechless.gif

Neal O'Connor found exactly SIX aviation recipients:

Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen we can scratch right off the "WW2" list

A Lt Hans Imelmann (not THAT Immelmann) was likewise killed in WW1

Lt G?tz von Scheve had other awards,

as did

Hptm Hugo Geyer

The two I can NOT find any record of either receiveing the WF3aX/WF3bX or Luftwaffe service for were

Hptm Arthur Sieler of IR29 (a flyer by 1914, so Neal shouldn't have missed his other awards) and

Oberlt Walter Heymann (I believe of Hessian IR 116, which would rule HIM out)

Sieler "fits" best for time-- Lt 1905, Oberlt 1914, Hptm 1915, char Major aD but I just don't have the rest of the jigsaw puzzle pieces.

Of course, this COULD just as easily be a NON aviator group, and yet another artillery-to-flak guy.

Insufficient data at this time.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
