Lt dR Wilhelm Ruwie (destroyed seven tanks). From Nassauer Bote, 31.10.1918

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

Here's a picture I found somewhere. An unknown LW Major with HHOX, WF and Meiningen.

G?rtner was a fascinating character-- the oldest/most senior reserve officer to win the Pour le Merite.

Poor Count Waldersee had the most amazing military career, only to be asphyxiated by a malfunctioning coal heater in China.

A good question, there are 2 Rademacher and 1 Radermacher with the HOH3X. Which is it? ;o)

@Rick Research

For sure! Wasn?t it Generalmajor Maximilian Graf von Yorck von Wartenburg who asphyxiated by a malfunctioning coal heater?

Count Waldersee died 1904 in Hannover.

Best wishes

Ahhh... VERY obscure. But you have added that HOH3X to what Erhard Roth knew! :cheers:

No wonder they arrested millions of the wrong people-- no such person.

I'm sure he'll turn up in a Reichsheer Rank List, I just don't have the time with other things I am doing right now and did not find him on a quick look through.

With the Johanniters, he should be a "von Somebody."

Ha! He is poor old Georg VON NIEBECKER

born in Bromberg 5 November 1877 but commissioned in Baden Pioneer Batallion 14.

Retired as charakterisiert Generalmajor aD 30 September 1931 but was called back up as commander of Wehrbezirkskommando Weimar 1935-37.

When the war started, mobilized as commander of "Oberbaustab 33"wherever and whatever that was. Seniority as Generalmajor zur Verfügung 1 November 1940. He served in this position ONLY 1 September 1939 to 2 January 1941, finally retiring permanently 31 May 1941...

so he never served against the Soviet Union at all. It must simply have been his misfortune to have lived in an area under the Russian Zone of Occupation and he was taken away... by mistake. I have the ribbon bar of a Luftwaffe General who had the same thing happen-- apparently arrested because he had the same last name as an army cousin of his who HAD served inside the borders of the USSR during the war.

:beer:

NKVD arrested all military and civil officials.

The general even were well for the general statistics.

I know a case when have arrested the miner in full dress, thought that it the general.

    • 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.
