I am sorry, that I write in German, but I experience difficulties while translating from German on English.

It will be possible interestingly...

Kein probleme! :cheers:

Aren't those citations GREAT? I like the little stamps in the shape of the awards that lower decorations received, going up each layer of command just like the Soviet ones... approved, downgraded, denied, upgraded... all on the same page.

When I last did any Austro-Hungarian research almost 30 years ago, it was ONLY on veterans who had remained in what was left of the tiny Austrian Republic.

I did not know that they kept records for GERMANS.

You are not going to COPY all the ?M3K

Belohnungsantr?ge, are you? :speechless1::speechless1::speechless1:

Though I have a few Urkunden for that in paperwork groups to German officers... :rolleyes:

Prussian Hauptmann der Landwehr Ernst Wilhelm H?ne of Landwehr Infanterie Regiment 7, 3rd Landwehr Division got his ?M3K on 2 March 1915 per decree of 26 February. For SOMETHING in Poland.

If you are making a list of German recipients, we can undoubtedly help because here this example shows the difference between what must be written on the Roll-- "Hauptmann H?ne"--and what we can add from other German sources or our own collections. :cheers:

There are different documents on compensations for Germans.

1. Citations for the separate officers, similar to the Soviet.

2. The general citations with identical feats or different.

3. Correspondence with wishes or offers on rewardings.

4. The general roll where is not specified a detailed feat, but only general phrases. For example for H?ne - "In Anerkennung tapferen Verhaltens vor dem Feinde"

I copy all that I can. Not only ?M3K.

I will be glad to any information, photos, the image medalbar etc.

Unfortunately is much not clear to me of questions... For example why date about rewarding in the document differs from date in roll...

"For example why date about rewarding in the document differs from date in roll..."

Yes, this :banger::speechless: also for me in all the German Rolls of German awards I have transcribed and typed out...

Clerk "A" recorded "Award Approved 01.02"... then it went to Clerk "B" who actually filled out the paperwork... on 07.02 ?

AAAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH

Rolls are what they are. We can only TYPE what they say! :rolleyes:

:cheers:

Old scan. Hauptmann dR D?hring got his on 3 December 1917.

Don't worry-- here is the last Urkunde. (What a difference the Epson 4490 scanner makes, eh? :rolleyes: )

Bavarian Major Alois Louis (born 1873) was shot through both legs in the first month of the war and after a losing medical struggle, had one leg amputated below the knee in early 1915. Here he was on the staff of Military Railways Directorate 6-- BREST LITOVSK

In 1940 he was an ABWEHR Oberstleutnant zV in Bavaria... :catjava:

I wonder if the number at the top left corner of each document (here "2220") MEANS anything on the Roll-- a laufende Nummer, perhaps?

It is number of rewarding ?M3K in each separate year.

Every year there was a new numbering.

Number on the document corresponds to general list ?M3K, but in roll German officers other number the general for all awards received by German officers is specified.

:speechless1::speechless1:

I would say, for Wunderlich-- 2 Februar 1915. The rest seem to be when the clerks got around to writing the paperwork... all AFTER the award document was made out!

There are too many Wunderlichs to sort out-- with :banger: no first names to match your Rudolf-- for me to find which one he was on German lists.

No-- the German sources list officers at REGIMENTAL assignment level, not this sort of temporary higher staff job. And with no first names in the German sources, or a "home regiment," I can't tell which one WAS yours. I assume the first name on your list in smaller writing off to the right is UNDER the last name of each officer, not ABOVE the last name? --

Wunderlich, Rudolf... not Gerhard, Wunderlich ?

If this had been awarded to an officer in a regiment, or like my Bavarian Major Louis, showed his "permanent" regiment as well as his wartime staff assignment, that would be easier to find a match.

The navy, Bavarian, Saxon, and W?rttemberg armies showed first names... but NOT the Prussians. :(
