(-25/08/14), puis commandant du 24 corps de r?serve (I) (25/08/14-12/09/14), puis commandant du 7 corps d'arm?e (II) (12/09/14-29/06/15), puis General der Pioniere bei der O.H.L.

Hi Glenn,


And he was in 1914 General der Pioniere too, but with the rank Generalleutnant.

Correct appointment:

Chef des Ingenieur- und Pionierkorps und Generalinspekteur der Festungen.



I think that von Beseler had the same position some years before. Quite a figure. I have a picture of his Generalkommando showing off their new decorations for taking Antwerp on the steps of the City Hall of Ghent, grand-pop and about 17 others the EK II and EK I, I think; von Beseler his pour le Merite.
