No, it is only for 1914-1918, with a lot of rules and regulations and some very broef information on a few sample recipients.

There is a loose page inserted not bound into the book, no explanation, with 38 people listed as recipients from 1866 to 1906. The only Russians listed are all recipients 1878-1879--

#17) Litwinenko, Russ. Unteroffizier in der Schloss Garde Kompagnie-- 07.05.78

#18) Burdorff, Russ. Sergeant im Infanterie Rgt 5-- 22.03.79

#19) Ewastignejeff, Russ. Sergeant im Inf Rgt 5-- 22.03.79

#20) Loskutoff, Russ. Unteroffizier im Inf Rgt 5-- 22.03.79

I would say NO.

Feldwebelleutnants were Officers, and so not eligible for the MVK.

If there are Feldwebelleutnants listed wiht a MVK I?m sure they received it for an action still done as NCO.

There are even 4 (if I remember exactly) FwLt who received the Hohenzollern knights cross with swords.

Best regards

Daniel

It would be nice to learn more about the awards given to the men of this rank. I bet they were caught in the middle, no PLM and MVK.

Any idea if there are any citations to be found for these?

Thanks

Chrus

Hello Chris:

To the best of my knowledge (as limited as it often is) there are no known sources for the citations regarding these awards. However, even though I do not own a copy, I believe that Nickel may have possibly covered some of the actions leading to the awards of 100 soldiers of so. I also believe that Ophaus may have mentioned the actions of a few soldiers in one of his smaller books.

Unfortunately, the citations however have never come to light as far as I know. One would have to look for the Regimental history for a particular unit to acquire further specific knowledge (if it exists).

Best regards,

"SPM"

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
