    Glenn, thank you very much for this excellent info, very much appreciated.

    von Wiese und Kaiserwaldau was awarded the Belgian Crownorder for his participation in the expedition with the Duke of Mecklemburg through Afrika 1907-1908.

    Hi Stijn,

Ostrpreu?isches) Nr. 41 who entered the Schutztruppe on 3 February 1906. He left the Schutztruppe with effect 29 September 1919 and re-entered Prussian service with effect the following day.

    Sekonde-Lieutenant/Leutnant: 13.3.97 Hh

    Oberleutnant: 18.5.07 F7f

    Hauptmann: 27.1.13 W

    His sole decoration listed in May 1914 is a Prussian Crown Order 4th Class with Swords.
