Rick, Komtur,

Fritz Vieth was the former 3. Lothringisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 135 Vieth (Hptm 1.10.13 B50b) and still in that rank in the 1919 Dienstaltersliste. Magdeburgisches J?ger-Bataillon Nr. 4 Leutnant Vieth was promoted to Oberleutnant with a Patent of 27.1.15 J52i and was still in that rank in the 1919 Dienstaltersliste.



Sorry, there were other awarding documents in that group, I forgot to mention:

1.) Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz f?r Hauptmann Vieth IR 135 (date not to read)

2.) Braunschweig Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse f?r Hauptmann und Kompanief?hrer Fritz Vieth Res.-IR 98 (?) vom 28.6.1918

3.) Braunschweig Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse f?r Hauptmann Fritz Vieth IR 459 vom 8.8.1918

4.) Braunschweig Bew?hrungsabzeichen zum Kriegsverdienstkreuz Hauptmann Fritz Vieth IR 459 vom 26.9.1918

The scans on Ebay were bad and before I was able to bid, the document group was canceled :angry:

With regards, Komtur.

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",

From their award documents, three that you may already have:

Leutnant der Reserve Ernst Paczoch, IR 175, 26. Februar 1917, Rollennr. 5140

Leutnant der Reserve Heinrich Giesbert, FAR 69, 10. Juni 1918, Rollennr. 7251

Leutnant Oskar Wiss, IR 99, 17. Juni 1918, Rollennr. 7393

With 142 awards in just one week, June 1918 must have been a busy month at the Generalkommission.

Hi Friends,

I want to bring this theme back to top and to ask again for assistance.

Who can show Hohenzollern documents?

I?m especially interested in late 1918 awards and awards to guys with more-than-common names like M?ller or Lehmann.

At the moment I have already more than 300 additional names than Willi Geile had in his first Hohenzollern roll from the mid-90ies.

Best regards

    • 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.
