    bought this photo of a saxon Hauptmann at the weekend. Clearly visible his shoulderboards with "178" or "179". Dedication reads: "z. Erinnerung an Wurzen August 1917" But his signature is still a misery for me. First I thougt Köhnecke but can´t find nobody on Ranklists or Roth. What are youre clues?

    Gruß Stefan

    Hi Chris.

    The Kommandeur was Freiherr Fritz v. Wedeklind, but this signature is from the "Regiments-Führer"

    Note, that he was only Hauptmann as a regiment-leader!

    I can´t read it clearly, but there were a lot of "von Zychlinksi" in the army. I couldn´t find a fiiting one in the Ehren-Rangliste, maybe he was a reserve-officer.
