According to my search history, I did an extensive search for Erich Gravenhorst in December of last year. For the life of me, I cannot remember why. I cannot find him in any of my research projects. Anyway, he was an Oberleutnant in FAR 74 at the start of the war, promoted to Hauptmann on 24.12.1914, and ending the war in the Generalstab of the 237.ID. Charakter as Major a.D. He does not appear to have been an active OTL; likely z.V. or z.D.

 

Friedrich Untucht was born on 8.6.1891 in Magdeburg and died on 6.8.1943 in Berlin-Wilmersdorf.

 

Wilhelm Walterscheid was born on 7.9.1894 in Troisdorf. He was with Landesschützenbataillon 678 and was killed on 3.11.1943. He had been promoted to Lt.d.R. in IR 69 on 20.3.1915 with a Patent of 22.3.1915.

 

Ernst Josef Dewies was born on 28.3.1893 in Bonn. He came out of the Hauptkadettenanstalt and was named a Fähnrich in FußAR 10 on 13.1.1915. He was promoted to Leutnant on 8.5.1915, later receiving a Patent of 11.9.1913. He was living as an Oberleutnant a.D. and Kaufmann after the war but was not a member of the FußAR 10 Offizier-Vereinigung, at least as of their 1926 Mitglieder-Verzeichnis.

Lenders had the Princely House Order.  He was an Oberleutnant der Landwehr a.D., promoted to Hptm.d.L.a.D. on 28.10.1914. The Todesanzeige says "und mehrerer anderer Kriegsauszeichnungen", but other than the EK1, LD2, HEK3X, I don't know of any other awards. The 1918 Prussian Court and State Handbook only lists the EK2 and HEK3X.

Hi,

there were "schnelle Abteilungen" as bicycle units and then there were those Panzerjäger ones. On may 1st 1943 the "schnelle Abteilung" you mentioned was named Panzerjäger-Abteilung 387 (again).

Georg Hermann Walter Böhm, born 20.1.1890 in Breslau, was a Lt.d.R. in GR 1 and RIR 240. Besides the HOH3X and the HH mentioned above, he may be the Lt.d.R. Georg Böhm who received the WF3bX, but I can't say for certain. He was wounded at least twice, so you can also add the VAs.

 

Todesanzeige below for Hans Steuer from IR 155 and several other units. Born on 2.7.1872 in Kreuzburg in Schlesien, he served with the II. Seebataillon in the Boxer Rebellion and also had the KO4X among his decorations.

This appears to be a new one, at least new to me. Erich Jaehner from FAR 57, died on 19.4.1943. I don't know when he was born - his Leutnants-Patent was from 1897, so probably between 1877-1879. He also had the Sachsen-Meiningen Honor Cross for Merit in War.

Maybe his wife is more famous, being a Dr. of her own it seems? Anything on him via her?

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
