Walter Gumprich was commissioned into RIR 67 on 22 March 1915. He was killed as a company commander in IR 30 on 30 September 1918 by Saint Quentin. Regards Glenn

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

Friedrich Richard v. Canstein was not a Freiherr, or at least was not elevated to one until after 1938 at least. He is in the Taschenbuch der uradeligen Häuser under the house of "Rabe von Canstein",

Also some interesting statistics at the end.

Another new first name: The Lt dL Thomas from IR 450 who is in our list is Max Thomas:

 

Regiment is not named in the death notice, but Maj Kaulbach was commander of IR 450. 

 

Also interesting: again another "only submitted" one according to the death notice, but we know he got the award through other sources. We should therefore list all submitted ones (at least in a separate category), even if we have no proof they got the award.

Yet another (very late) submitted one who may well have got it:

 

Hptm dR Zimmer, BatKdr in einem niedersächsischen IR (I couldn't determine the exact regiment.)

 

This would be a new one, he is not in the list so far. 

 

From Schlesische Zeitung, Nov 1918

That would be Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 465. Hauptmann d.R. Karl Zimmer was a Leutnant d.R. in Jäger-Batallon Nr. 6 in 1914.

Hptm Müller (IR 51) is Friedrich Alfred Müller, originally from IR 137. Born 25.03.1882 in Weilerbach. Probably the MWB dated 05.Sep.1918 (same date as Majors Nollau & v Sommerfeldt u Falkenhayn).

great stuff!!!

 

I am quite sure, that we have now more or less ALL Reserve and Landwehr guys.

there are only a handful listed in MWB and StAnz and not in the MilKab files.

The remaining missing 50-60 guys should be all active officers.

 

All the best

I guess we have him already, but just in case, here is a HHOX Komtur to a Geheimer Rat von Berg:

The Wilhelmshavener Tageblatt (20.10.1918) reprinted these HHOX recipients, obviously based on the Staatsanzeiger entry from 17.10. I checked all the names, we have them all - except for one:

 

Hptm dL aD von Zwingler

 

--->    CORRECTION: "Zwingler" seems to be a typo. This is probably Hptm dL aD Rudolf von ZINGLER (in the list already).

No, his award was in the Staatsanzeiger on 24.9.1918. I just found his first name in this publication from 1919.

    • 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.
