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

Hi Daniel, Here are my bar with the HHOx. The first one is marked 938 on the lower arm. The second one is marked W 938 on the lower arm. The Third is marked als 938 on the lower arm. Ciao, Claud

Hi Daniel I have found may be one another Saxon officer who received the HOH3X. Found in the Riesaer Tagesblatt of 4 november 1918 It's the best I can do, sorry Christophe

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:

Oberleutnant 24.01.11

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.

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.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
