    Hi Chris,

    R.I.R. 10: Oberstleutnant Sch?nwasser. I will see if I can track down a first name.



    To add to Glenn's bio post in #32, on mobilization in 1914, Sch?nwasser left GR 11 and became commander of III./RIR 10. Obviously, he moved upstairs sometime before January 1917. He was still in command of RIR 10 at war's end.

    Thank yee kindly! Any idea what rank he had ?

    All the best


    Generalmajor from 18.08.1917. Generalleutnant on 18.12.1920 retroactive to 01.10.1920 He retired in January 1926 and was promoted to char. General der Artillerie. If there's a 1925 Reichswehr rank list it should have his awards; he's out by the time of my 1926 rank list.

    I read that last signature as Matthia?. I am work now so will check when I get home.



    Wilhelm "Willi" Matthia? of IR 155 took command of RIR 46 on mobilization. He received the pour le M?rite on 22 November 1917, by then probably a brigade commander, but I don't have a unit. In June 1918, he took command of the 25. Reserve-Division. In October 1918, he took command of the 207. Infanterie-Division. He died 23 September 1919.
