I have scan the RL for you. For your information von Reichsmeister received the BMVO4bX on 01 july 1916. He never received the Hohenzollern (from the Geile's book). Probably Rick has got all of his others awards.

That's all for the moment. Don't hesitate to show us what you have about this officer.

Hm. No helpful clue there. The Rittmeister above was Kurt, so that's not him. This may take some genealogical rummaging.

There was NO other von Reichmeister-- active or reserve--in the Prussian army in 1914, nor any in the Imperial navy. No one from this family died in action during the world war...

I am wondering if this is a CHRISTENING cup for a BABY von Reichmeister, possibly the Rittmeister's son?
