Lt dR Wilhelm Ruwie (destroyed seven tanks). From Nassauer Bote, 31.10.1918

Such an amazing project to lift all these brave men from oblivion 👍

Here's a picture I found somewhere. An unknown LW Major with HHOX, WF and Meiningen.

Hi Daniel,

I finally got around 10 - 15 kg papers with some lists what will be my very first "type it to the excel format" project.

There is as well some Hohenzollern indicated but I am not sure are you interested as well to the civilian ones or you main task is only awards with the swords?

Here is one name example (very weird abreviations!!! Don't know do I keep them in same format or I better follow the ones posted here?)

Hi Noor,

VEEERY INTERESTING weird source which I have not seen before.

What is that?????

I would be very much interested in more from this.

Your 1st example Wendt is one I do still not have in my list. As there are no other peacetime awards shown and a peacetime HOH is already something extraordinary and nearly unthinkable without any other award like the Red Eagle before I would assume they mean here the HOH3X instead of a HOH3.

There were 3 Wendts with a HOH3X, a Freiherr, a Georg von and Immo Wendt, still no Erwin...

Greetings

Daniel

Sorry, but I do not believe this is a genuine ribbon bar.

Main reason is the former seller whose fancy ribbons bars, sold over the years, all look very similar. Conspiciouis similar.

There are also some details which I honestly don't like, e.g. the bronze swords for the China KO4X on #3...

Hi. Thanks for your comment.

Can you point me to / show me images of some similar pieces of the same seller?

Regards. Peter.

Hi Daniel,

New information.

Leutnant d. R Oskar Thierfelder from RIR 133 has received the Hohenzollern knight cross at the end of the war (for the moment I have no date).

This officer received the St Henry silver medal and the knight cross of St Henry.

@Christophe; thanks a lot!!! Do You have any source mentioning him as Hohenzollern knight or a picture? He did as well geth the Albrecht ans Merit ORder with swords! Awesome decorated Saxon!!

@Dave: Thanks a lot!!!

@all; come on friends, lets continue! At the moment I have 7643 Hohenzollern knights, 410 more than Geile had in the 90ies. I am still missing 648 names :-)

Lots of greetings

Daniel

    • 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.
