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.

I'd love to get a better quality version of this photo, but it's nice nonetheless. Note the double Bavarian ribbons, which are not correct, since he received a Military Merit Order 4th Class with Swords in 1914 and a 4th Class with Crown and Swords in 1918.

Here is one you can remove from the HOH3X list.

Rohrbach, OLt.

He is included In Geile's Hohenzollern list based on his entry in the Reichswehr rank lists. He was in the 1920s rank lists as a OLt. (1.4.25 (85)) in the 14. (Bad.) Inf.Rgt. with the HOH3X, EK1 and VAs. In World War I, he was a Lt. in IR 169.

In Daniel's and Rick's Ernestine lists, there is an EH3bX for a Lt.d.R. Hellmuth Rohrbach in IR 169. Hellmuth Rohrbach was transferred from the reserve officers to the active officers of IR 169 on 6 March 1917. He is the officer in the Reichswehr 14.IR. The HOH3X was a mistake:

You're welcome Daniel!

Here is another possibility. In Geile there is listed a Maj.d.L. Bender whose HOH3X was gazetted on 18.9.17. The only Maj.d.L. Bender I know of is Waldemar Bender, Hptm.d.Gd.L. 1.Aufg. (Marienburg) des GdFußAR. He was given the Charakter of Maj.d.Gd.L. on 18.6.15, and was at the time Führer of a heavy howitzer batterie (schwere Feldhaubitze-Batterie) of the Gouvernment Königsberg in Tilsit. Born 12.2.1870 in Elbing, he was a Gutsbesitzer auf Klein Stoboy bei Elbing, and was killed by the Soviets in March 1945 there.

Here is a crop of a picture from his silver wedding anniversary in 1923. I know the photo is grainy, but does this look like it could be confirmation of the HOH3X?

    • 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.
