Every Single 1870 EK Winner's Name and Unit List


Recommended Posts

Came across a wonderful "little" title on my last research trip to the big city: A complete register of the winners of the 1870 Iron Cross with first names and units :jumping:

Some 1200 odd pages it contains the names of the winners from all contingents in all classes.

WOW!! :jumping::jumping:

That such a thing exists and we didn't know!

I checked it: The K?niglich-preu?ische Ordensliste was published from 1862-1905. It had a predecessor, the

"Ordens-Liste der Ritter und Inhaber k?niglich-preu?ischer Orden und Ehrenzeichen", which was published from 1825-55.

The 1905 was the last "full" year but "Nachtr?ge" were published up to 1913. I am currently pulling all the first names of hundreds of Officers and Military Officials from the 1906 & 1907 Nachtrag.

I note that most of the Schmidts above are enlisted men.

A GREAT find.

Congratulations again.

Great research detective work.

Uhhhh-not to be too bold, but how can we/I get a copy?

YAAAY!!!!! They are ALL there ALL ALL ALL-- not "just" the Prussians!!!!

Never even dreamed such a Roll ever existed. :jumping::jumping::jumping: AND it is already is almost-alphabetical (alphabetical at least by last names and ranks down in regimental order) so no hunting through 1,3000 pages for a name.

MUST HAVE!!!!!! :jumping::jumping::jumping:

Jeff,

Uhhhh-not to be too bold, but how can we/I get a copy?

I have not yet decided how to "distribute" this. If there is some interest I will copy it to cd as a pdf file for a nominal fee at some stage.

webr55,

they are generally in order of name and again sorted by rank. There are actually four full pages of Schmidts!

Here are some awards on the non-combatant ribbon.

Regards

Glenn

Thanks Glen. I would be very grateful for anything you could send my way.

...and I would be more than happy to pay any fee required for this work! :jumping:

Again, my congratulations.

This and the 1914/15 book uncovered by Dave Danner are the most important Grman medal 'discoveries' done in the last decade I reckon -and a major find for historical research at many levels! As my nephew would say- "you d'man"!

    • 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.
