Chris, Andy,

Franz v. Zychlinski may be a good candidate. Formerly a company commander in 5. GRzF, he was the "Führer" of the II. Bataillon of GGR 1.

Regards

Glenn

Hi Chris!

Oberleutnant Freiherr v. Hadeln was later Hauptmann a.D. Her serevd in the Bezirkskommando Windhuk (Südwestafrika).

The Rangliste 1914 shows him as Leutnant with the Patent 21.1.06 N2n.

The signature must be Hauptmann (later Oberstleutnant a.D.) Strümpell in the Kommando der Schutztruppen im

Reichs-Kolonialamt Berlin.

Hauptmann Strümpell (Patent 21.1.09 Q2q) was awarded with:

Roter-Adler-Orden mit Schwertren 4.Kl.

Roter-Adler-Orden 4.Kl. mit Krone

Kgl. Kronen-Orden 4.Kl. mit Schwertern

Dienstauszeichnungskreuz

Braunschweigischer Heinrich der Löwe-Orden Ritterkreuz 1.Kl.

Ritter der französischen Ehrenlegion

Hi Chris!

Strümpell hadn´t been Ritter of the Ehrenlegion in the Rangliste 1909. I don´t have the 1910, but in the 1911 RL he was the Ritter and he served in the Schutztruppe for Cameroon.

Probably he became Ritter for his work with his museum.

Hi Chris!

The bav. RIR23 belonged to the bav.16.Res.Brig. (bav.8.Res.Div.)

Commander of that brigade was from 12.4.17-27.8.18 Oberst Ernst d´Alleux (*1863, + 1945)

The Ehrenrangliste listed him as Oberstleutnant in bav.5.Inf.Rgt. Last service: commander of bav.16.Inf.Brig. After the war Generalmajor a.D.

Leutnant: 14.5.85

Oberleutnant: 8.2.94

Oberstleutnant: 10.10.13

Oberst: 30.11.14

Hi Chris!

It would be easier, if you wouldn´t have castrated the date. I can only read Dezember 19??

Gentlemen,

That is the signature of Werner Pinckvoß, later Gen.Lt.

Oh yes, Andy! That makes sense!

I thought, the last letter was a "y"...

In the RL 1929, Major Pinckvoß was in that Abteilung! That fits!

Chris,

#122 is Dziobek.  However, I can't tell you which one for certain (though I tend to think it was Otto from IR 162), as the Ehrenrangliste does not list any of them as having RIR 74 as a last command.

    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
    • I don't really drink that much these days, but there is something about a hot cup of Char that can't be beaten when you are cold wet and miserable. Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
