    Does anyone know anything about the name below? I think it says Clauß.

    Did he really exist or is he a made up Generalmajor?

    I've had a look in my Ehrenrangliste but couldn't find him, this doesn't mean he isn't there though.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Tony,

    Generalmajor Eugen Ritter von Clauß, 25 Oct 1862-23 Feb 1942. He is on page 775 of the Ehrenrangliste as commander of the 6th Bavarian Infantry Brigade in 1914.

    I was in your part of the World today. Visited Bielefeld to check out the Landesgeschichtliche Bibliothek.

    Hi Christophe,

    That is an incredible group... how many years ago had Clauss' group on sale on his catalogue? It must have been not so long ago... strange I missed it! I always follow HH catalogues...

    Wonderful set! Did you get something from this group?

    as an Imperial medal bar newbie...

    deruelle, would you be so kind as to

    identify the medal bar awards?

    my guess:

    PEK/bavarian?/black eagle order/PKO/Zahringen Lowe/?/bavarian?/?/bavarian?

    all of them are in magnificent condition.

    this would be a certerpiece for any collection!
