I´m searching for infos about Peter Ingenhoven.

He was a aviator in WW I and was awarded with the House Order of Hohenzollern. In WW II he was awarded with the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross.

His observer was Lt. Mangold.

Dear Ingo

The only info I was able to find about this avaitor are the dates of his birth and dead (16-december-1894_1-november-1942) and the place were he fell, mostlikely in combat (beljevo-velizh). He was awarded the knightscross of the iron cross on may 11th 1940. On the moment of his death he held the position of Hauptmann der fliegerreserve (flight captain of the reserves)

Kind regards, Laurentius Stroek

I'm still trying to find information on my great-uncle, Oberst Otto Heinemann, who was in the Feldartillerie and a recipient of the HOH.

Hello!

In the ranklist of honour is a Hauptmann Heinemann (Feldart.Rgt.15), after the war he was Major in Reichswehrministerium (inspection of the artillery). In the ranklist of 1925 he had HOH (knight with swords), EK I and service award. Promoted to Major Dec.1, 1922.

No entry in ranklist 1928 (I don´t have 1926 and 1927)

The Heinemann in the Ehrenrangliste from FAR 15 and in the Reichswehr was the later General der Artillerie Erich Heinemann.

As Daniel noted in his reply to you in February 2009, the only other candidate would be a Hauptmann der Reserve Heinemann whose HOH3X was gazetted in the Militär-Wochenblatt on 24.08.1918. No other HOH3Xs to anyone named Heinemann are known, although there are a few very late-war awards that were never gazetted. So if it came in late October or early November 1918, it might still be out there waiting to be discovered. 

I have looked over every reserve officer who would have been a Hptm.d.R. in 1918, and found only three. One was named Otto, but none of them are artillery officers, and this Otto was not likely later a colonel. He is:

Heinemann, Otto, *25.5.1865 in Langenau; Landesmeliorationsbaumeister beim Provinzial-Verbandes der Provinz Ostpreußen
• 18.11.1893 Sekonde-Lieutenant d.R. des Pionier-Bataillons Nr. 1
• 18.06.1903 Oberleutnant d.R.
• 21.04.1911 Hauptmann d.R.
• 30.09.1918 Charakter als Major d.R.
• living as a Landesbaurat and Maj.d.R.a.D. in Königsberg according to the 1931 Mitgliederverzeichnis for PB 1

His known decorations are the Roter-Adlerorden 4. Klasse, Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse, Landwehr-Dienstauszeichnung 1. Klasse and Österreich-Ungarisches Militärverdienstkreuz 3. Klasse mit der Kriegsdokoration.

The other two Hauptleute der Reserve were Martin from the reserve of Pionier-Bataillon Nr. 4 and Rudolf from the reserve of Telegraphen-Bataillon Nr. 6. Martin was a Baumeister in Putbus. Rudolf was a Postinspektor in Halle a.S., later in Oldenburg.

I was unable to rule out any of these three as Daniel's HOH3X recipient. Do you have any other information on your relative which might shed some light? Or maybe there was a mix up in your family history between Otto and the later-general Erich Heinemann?

Thanks guys for all your diligence. Dave, the guy you've found is definitely him, as the dates and locations fit. I guess he never made Oberst. Anyway, he was killed in January, 1945 while driving in a car, by Russian fighter-bombers.

Here is one, I bought and sold recently...

The IC 1st class was sold before I got it and there were also a WW2 war merit cross with swords 2nd and 1st class, most likely
belonging to this group.

Unfortunately there was no name coming with this group.

One of my favourite orders, I hope updated list of recipients will be published sooner than later. Willi Geile's book was published 22 years ago!

Hello Daniel,
