This publication of the Franciscan Order ("Heimatgrüsse an die im Felde stehenden Patres, Fratres und Brüder der Thüringischen Franziskanerprovinz") from August 1917 mentions a (Franciscan brother) Zeno Maier who got the HHOX on 14. Juni 1917:

According to this publication, "Scharfschützen-Warte" (seems to be a weekly journal for MG-Abt.) from 6.10.1918, a Lt dR Lange from Abt. Buttmann received the HHOX.

Great!!!!! Thanks!

 

Zeno Maier - no fitting Maier in our list... maybe he' s got a princely Hohenzollern??

 

Lange - thats most likely our Lange from MGSSA 36

 

the 2 Müllers remain a question... who is who??? I do not have a LtdR in a FlgAbt who might fit, so he might be one of the Artillery guys.

 

Richard - no HOH, he' s got a HEK3X.

 

Best,

Daniel

Not sure if this is a new one, I don't find anyone in the list who fits, so if it's not a Princely one, should be new:

 

Bavarian Hptm Reiß from Militär-Eisenbahndirektion 2

Here are two of the higher grades together, both with swords. We have v. Wrisberg, but I think we don't have Generalstabsarzt der Armee Prof. Dr. Otto von Schjerning yet: Commander with star with swords

 

The award is also not in his list on Wikipedia:

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_von_Schjerning

 

From Münchner Neueste Nachrichten, 17.8.1917

Could it be that we are missing more of the higher grades? This is General d.I. Moriz (sic!) von Lyncker, who got the Großkomtur with swords.

Hi all,

 

many thanks!

 

Acc. the higher grades - yes, Schjerning and Hindenburg - and Moriz (indeed Moriz)  v.Lyncker are already known.

 

I am still stumbling with the 2 Bavarians above - Fischer and Reiß...

As non-Prussians are more or less 100 % in the Militärkabinett-files, and a 1917 award should be listed either in the MWB or Staatsanzeiger or Bavarian Personalmitteilungen, if these might period mistakes.

Nevertheless, I will add them with a questionmark.

 

All the best,

Daniel

Ok, here is a tricky case:

 

This is a HHOX notice for a

 

Lt Paul Herrmann, from an RIR, and who also got the Hanseatic Cross. 

Published in Hamburger Anzeiger, 14.6.1918

 

So the name Paul Herrmann is not uncommon. There were two future Generals with that name:

 

1) GM Paul Herrmann (1892-1974). Received HHOX 25.4.1918 as Pioneer (not Infantry) Olt (not Lt), from PiBat3. No Hanseatic Cross, according to Reichsheer RL. Can't be him, if they didn't make (several) huge mistakes. 

 

2) GM Paul Reinhold Herrmann (1898-1980), served in Bundeswehr. No HHOX and no Hanseatic Cross, according to Reichsheer RL. Can't be him either.
