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,

I want to be sure, you are not talking about Leutnant Hans Clausen from FA 230 and who served in the FR 108 ?

Another one from the Ostpreußenblatt (23.4.1960), might have some new info on Ulrich Benefeldt from IR 43:

Rudolf Fischer from the 1942 edition of 'Garten Kunst'. Born 15 Dec 1883 in Berlin. See page 9 of the first file, and page 2 of the second link for details of his EK1. He was from GGR 3 and RIR 262. The book on the latter regiment notes his HOH3x award on page 238. He appears a few times in the verlustlisten.

Leutnant dL Heinrich Zeininger (see page 8). Born 1867 !

http://gartentexte-digital.ub.tu-berlin.de/archiv/Gartenkunst/Jg.52/B09.pdf 

Very interesting! The last Prussian "Hofgartendirektor". There is even a picture in the article, however the scan makes it unrecognizable. Fortunately, it can be found on the net:
It might be that this is the Hohenzollern Hausorden without swords.

What I can recognize:

EK, Verdienstkreuz für Kriegshilfe, HHO, RAO4, some Long Service decoration probably


then 4 foreign decorations:
first might be Austrian
2nd looks a bit like the Hungarian War Remembrance Medal, but I'm not sure
3rd might be Danebrog
last one: Bulgarian Order of Civil Merit

I looked in the Swedish "statskalendern" from 1880. Statskalendern are were important people in Sweden was listed with there ODM´s. I found 4 persons who hade recived this order. 

Carl Herman Oscar Ennes, Ärekors af Hohenz. Hus 0. 3:e kl. 

Frih. Gustaf Johan Wilhelm Ehrenborgh, Ärekors af Hohenz. Hus O. 2:a kl.

Sven Hjalmar Thestrup, Ärekors af Hohenz. Hus-O. 3:e kl.

Olde, Emanuel Mathias, Ärekors Hohenz. Hus. 0. 3:e kl. 

So these person would have gotten the order before 1880.

Great work! Here is a 1932 article relating to a Josef Jans (b. 1894). I cannot find him in the MWB or any other publications from the war era.

Hello,

 

does anybody have more info on Jans?

I have a Lt d.R. Jans in Feldluftschiffabteilung 21.

Maybe him?

 

Best,

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.
