Infantry Regiment 93... Oberleutnant HIGHLY decorated...

The L?beck Hanseatic Cross is the key--

that is Julius Vierth

Daniel and Glenn found the MANUSCRIPT for a NEVER PUBLISHED Inf Rgt 93 officers Stammliste:

and here he is in ALMOST all his glory:

Note that he does NOT show his L?H in this entry BUT (oh how the pieces of the Great Jigsaw Puzzle all come together with the collective labours of the Research Gnome Collective :rolleyes: ) he is listed on the L?beck Hanseatic rolls--which should be published in the 2009 Award Rolls batch-- with that in 1915.

No, not "magic"-- just endless tenacity-- and spending a LOT of tme underground in damp, dark, dusty, moldy forgotten archives... one piece at a time.
