We have two Lauteschlägers in the list, but I think this is a new one.

 

In the list, we have:

- Reinhard L., born 1872, in 1914 Hptm in FAR 61, held RAO4X and KO4X, among others.

- Ernst L., born 1872, in 1914 Maj in IR 81. 

Both got the HHOX already in 1917.

 

But then there is another one, in 1914 Olt dL in Landwehrbezirk II Darmstadt, from Artillery. It must be him. 

 

Regierungsrat and Hptm dL R. Lauteschläger (I don't find his full first name.)

 

From Darmstädter Tagblatt, 9.11.1918

Ah - it's Rudolf, as per Adressbuch Darmstadt 1918:

Bornheim is indeed new.

About Oldenbourg - not sure if we have a period mistake among Wilhelm and Alexander Oldenbourg.

 

Best,

"der Stabsbildoffizier als Leiter der Stabia (Stabsbildabteilung) war dem jeweiligen Kommandeur der Flieger direkt unterstellt. Zu seinen Aufgaben zählten die planmäßige Überwachung der gesamten Lufterkundungsergebnisse einer Armee, die Herstellung von Luftbildkarten und die Nutzbarmachung der Erfahrungen aus den Erkundungsergebnissen."

thats....odd.....

I can not confirm his Ernestinian Commander, or the Sachsen-Weimar Cross.

Only things I have are the Hohenzollern and the Württemberg Frederick...

The other ones... self awarded???

 

Best,

Daniel

If I remember correctly, the Ernestiner Hausorden continued to be awarded post-1918 by the Dukes.

Regional newspapers are one of the key sources to find new HHOXs. A number of us have now looked systematically through many newspapers, and I think it's time for a review: which regions are still (mostly or entirely) missing? In newspapers from which regions would it be most promising to still find new HHOX recipients (esp. totally new ones, not just first names, although those are certainly still very interesting)?

 

Going again through this thread, I would say the status is this:

 

Well covered already:

Hamburg

Hessen

Baden

Saxony (esp. Dresden)

 

 

Fairly well covered:

Nordrhein-Westfalen (ex. Münster and others, but some cities less, see below)

Thüringen (only some parts, esp. Jena)

Mecklenburg-VP (Stralsund, Greifswald)

Oldenburg

Straßburg 

East Prussia (Königsberg)

West Prussia (Thorn)

Posen (Bromberg, Posen)

Silesia (Breslau)

 

 

 

Less well covered:

Berlin (esp. award notices)

Cologne 

Württemberg, in particular Stuttgart

Other Thuringian states 

Rheinland-Pfalz

 

 

 

Fairly blind spots: 

Pomerania, especially Stettin 

Schleswig-Holstein

Hannover/Braunschweig/Anhalt

 

 

Unclear:

Bavaria: Digitized libraries do not seem to turn up much, newspapers like Münchner Neueste Nachrichten are being digitized, but it is not clear to me anyway whether there are many Bavarian HHOXs missing  

 

 

 

 

I think what would be most interesting to look through is (digitized) newspapers from:

 

1) Berlin: while the Vossische Zeitung covers the death notices well, it does not list awards. It seems that the awards might be listed in the local Berlin newspapers from particular quarters of the city. Not sure. Any help welcome. 

 

2) Württemberg: Stuttgart, anyone?

 

3) More Thuringian states: what about Schwarzburg, Weimar, Altenburg etc.?

 

4) Schleswig-Holstein: Flensburg, Kiel etc.? Especially award notices other than Navy. 

 

5) Hannover / Braunschweig / Anhalt: any relevant newspapers digitized yet? I found that the Magdeburgische Zeitung/Anhalter Anzeiger is in the process, but apparently progress is very slow. 

 

Any directions or help where to find more: most appreciated. 

And of course, any other comments are welcome!

    • 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.
